    South Florida defensive handgun classes?

    Hello all. I'm a new member from South Florida.

    My fiancee and I are looking for more training on defensive pistol usage to go with our ccws. We both want to get out to the bigger schools (Valhalla, Gunsite, Thunder Ranch) but right now cost is an issue. Are there any good schools or classes in the South Florida area, preferably in the areas from Jupiter to Ft. Lauderdale, that are under $500 per person to give us the basics until we can get out to one of the top schools?

    Irv brings in THE top names: Randy Cain, Louie Auwerbuck, Super Dave Harrington, etc, etc.
    I will give my wholehearted endorsement to Randy Cain's Tactical Handgun 101. Have taken it twice, and I try to take it annually. There is NO substitution for the basics.

    I also live in the South Fllorida area and have checked the schedules of what I think are all of the better schools in our area, from Homestead up through Orlando, including Southern Exposure, for a basic tactical training class. From what I have found, we have missed them and there do not seem to be any scheduled in the near future.

    If you, or anyone else, find that I am wrong and missed one that is coming up over the next month or so, would you please PM or e-mail me the information.

    I've trained with Jim Clark when he was teaching for OPS, and he's very good.

    They have a pistol class coming up on a couple weeks.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Thanks everyone. Southern Exposure doesn't have that course listed so far for this year, but High Point Defensive Handgun - 1 looks like a good one. Both of these are further away then I'd like, we'd really like to avoid any hotel expenses right now. Since the High Point class is a one day affair it might still be doable.

    Are there no good classes or schools in the south east florida area?

    Send a note to Irv via email at bigsfish@bellsouth.net. He'll include you in the mailing list and you will get the updated class list whenever is available. And don't dispair, sometimes there are last minute cancellations and you can sneak in a class.
    I reccomend Randy Cain's class.
