    Dad passed a lot of information to me
    CCW training
    Defensive Fire Institute (local bunch, 8 hr. course, but informative)
    Givens Combat Pistol Course (20 hrs, excellent, learned a lot)
    IDPA (I know its just a game, but it keeps your gun handling skills fresh) I try to use this as training if thats possible.

    I\'m a certified 4H handgun instructor.

    Other than that, occasional classes here and there and lots and lots of range time to the tune of several times per week including night shooting.

    I was \"taught\" by a few target shooters. Really never helped my accuracy any. Police qualification \"training\" (not really training, just shoot for qual) for 18 years, again no practical training.

    Last year I finally took real professional training with Jim Crews http://www.marksmans.com, 3 days and 28 hours of range time. Great experience and helped my shooting skills immensely.

    Plan on taking Randy Cain\'s training in the Nashua, NH area this Summer. See http://www.neshooters.com for these local training opportunities. If you do sign up, please let them know that I referred you - it\'s a great group of local guys (all certified trainers) who are trying to bring top-notch training to the Northeast area.

    NRA Instructor class (all disciplines)
    NRA Training Counselor class
    NRA LEAD Handgun/Shotgun and Tactical Pistol Instructor Classes
    Several of Gabe Suarez's classes
    A bunch of classes at Front Sight, including Instructor Development
    Nevada P.O.S.T. Firearms Instructor
    Andy Stanford's Surgical Speed Shooting
    Steve Krystek's Protocomm 100 and 200
    Two police academies
    A couple of Hoch Hockheim's integrated force classes.

    Stuff I'm planning to take:
    Robin Brown's Quick Kill course
    Anything by Tom Givens
    A shotgun class by Louis Awerbuck
    More classes by Gabe
    Anything that gets anywhere near Las Vegas.

    I admit it, I'm a training junkie.

    I took a marksmanship course in college (military college) that was based on the US Army manual. It was very basic though.

    I got my first handgun training at the police academy. Since then I have attended advanced training within my deprtment and at the state training facility. I have also become a state certified instructor and have obtained an additional police shotgun instructor certification.

    I would very much like to attend some classes at some of the "top flight" schools.

    I have only taken my CCW class with respect to formal training. On the 8th of June I am going to LFI in Dumbarton, NH to be instructed by Massad Ayoob. My plans included taking all the LFI courses then I may go to Gunsite.
