    No personal experience but Pat has an excellent reputation and, after checking out his website(http://www.pgpft.com/) I can see that his classes are very reasonably priced.

    IMO It looks like a competent and able crew. I watched the video. I hope thats just a marketing tool. A little too much going on at once. And the whole thing with forming a circular firing squad around a car... well.... what can I say? Thats just not how it's done.

    Why dont ya give Brownie {if he dont mind me calling him that} a call... (Just my own personal opinion)

    I don't know. I'd personally have an issue with any training that had someone with live weapons in operation behind me. I'm all for some realistic training but I don't need an actual GSW to get the idea that it's realistic. Pros have to train under less than safe conditions on occasion; I'm not so sure us amateurs really need to.

    I have attended the Defensive Handgun I & II and just recently finished the Close Quarter Battle Class. Pat is an excellent instructor with a very knowledgable staff. If you go to one his classes you will find out that safety is a number one priority with him. Classes are kept small and there was 3 to 5 instructors with us at all times. We'll worth the time and money. I am going back in June to take the Advanced Handgun Class.

    I have taken DHG1, DHG2, Advanced handgun, and am going in October for CQB. They are top notch instructors and safety is always top priority.

    Cool Exacto. QCB was great. I'm looking forward to the Advanced Handgun class. Everyone tells me it is really good. Seems like Pat is always changing his classes and keeps it interesting.

    Why can't I find classes like this in Upstate SC?
