I am trying to decide where to take some training from here in Connecticut. I am looking at the Defense Associates Three Day Defensive handgun course, or breaking it up and taking several of the courses offered at the Bridgeport Shooting range. Anybody have any experiences, advice or warnings? Any infor would be appreciated!!

I have taken the Defense Associates beginner pistol course. I can't remember offhand if it was 2 or 3 days. I do remember that I was quite expensive! But.. .very worth it. I had a great time and I learned a bunch. You're not going to get the 'higher speed' stuff that say Magpul type classes are geared towards but this is the old tried and true. Go for it, and you'll see what I mean.
Frank and Gary at DA pull no punches... their info is solid. I have no reservations recommending their training.

Defense Associates is good, I did Ayoob's class with them last year.
Specter Tactical in East Haddam is very good as well. I did their CQB force of force (Airsoft), FOF rifles (MILES Gear), Knife class and a skill development day with them. Well worth the time & $ - Specter Tactical: Home

CT's got good stuff if you are willing to look for it.
