Dad passed a lot of information to me
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.

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.
