    Looking for training class/facility in Midwest

    I live near Chicago and would like to attend a defensive handgun training course. Anyone attend anything in the midwest? I am willing to travel, but seeing as how this would be my first such course, I would prefer to minimize costs by finding something close. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    TDI is a great place, you need to go! Its a easy drive from the Chicago area. If you dont want to drive, there are also lots of cheap flights to CVG too.

    TDI

    Oh great! TDI is down the road from my family in Ohio. I will definitely have to check that out. Thanks for the link and the endorsement.

    I recommend them as well - and I have never been there...

    high on my wish list though - but I have dealt with some of their instructors - all top notch

    I just took the CCW class on Saturday & he was a great instructor. I will be taking his advanced class this summer.

    Gunsite offers some classes in Lebanon, IN. Prices are very good. I'm considering attending the pistol class this year.

    I think Blackwater also has classes in Illinois. You might check out their website offerings. Gunsite will significantly cheaper even with the travel
