    Selecting a shooting school

    As many know here i am somewhat adamate on firearms training , Training outside the accepted norms is ok , and eventualy if enough do then that is the accepted norm , but we should carefully think thro who we train with as well as what they teach ... The LawDog summed it up better than i can here http://thelawdogfiles.blogspot.com/2...on-honour.html And if your one of the three folks who dont know and read lawdog , brace yourselves for a truely great editorial experiance .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Thanks, Redneck Repairs. Scary post, but I have found that fear is often a great motivator. In this case, of course, the motivation is to pay close attention to what LawDog wrote, and to heed his advice.

    Ron and folks , My aim is not to scare anyone , My aim is to get everyone to evaluate training before they go . I for one am a " Front sight " shooter in that i like aimed fire . Some schools of unaimed fire tell you that this is all you need , None of the instructors of unaimed fire that are members here say that crap ( or if they do not that i know of) . Unaimed fire is a great tool to have , and have been trained on , but not before you have the basics . Just as an illistration , There are many instructors of both aimed and unaimed fire out there that i would pay to stay off my defense team . Before you drop 200+ on a school tho check it out , check out the instructor and his claims , its not the 200 its what it costs in court . The like of the instructors we have of this date on this board tho i would be happy to have show up , and i speak specificly to azqker ( brownie ) and sweatin . I feel that occationaly they over stress the advantages of thier methods , but you know what so do the guys who basicly say you cannot fire unless you have a stable sight pic .

    Remember , if you have to put a VCA down , then a jury will have all the time in the world to not only pick apart what you did on the street , but how you came to do it .

    That is a great point. We will usually have to make a split second decision whether to use deadly force. The jury, on the other hand, will have the luxury of being able to sit back, and using hindsight decide whether the shooting was justified. A very good reason to have all of our ducks in as much order as possible.

    Wow, I am sure glad that I have never trained with any instructors that have made such damaging statement as "tampering with evidence" or to "assasinate the perp after you have stopped the threat."

    If I did I would get up and walk out in the middle of the course.

    Redneck Repairs;

    The blog stated pretty clearly that which any student should consider when choosing an instructor IMO.

    I appreciate the vote of confidence sir.

    Thanks

    Reaffirms my choice of instructors, and makes me glad I skipped a class with another instructor.

    Thanks for the post,
