    Defensive training in Michigan

    I'm wondering if anyone can point me to a defensive training course for CCW in Michigan. I've already got the CPL so I'm looking for the next level in training beyond that, stuff like point shooting, shooting while moving, force on force, disarm/retention etc.

    I've found three or four websites that advertise training but the schedules are all a couple years old and they don't answer my e-mails so I imagine that the companies are defunct but they pre-paid their web fee.

    Target in Royal Oak (where I took my CCW course) is supposed to have something but they haven't scheduled one as long as I've been checking their website and that's roughly 6 months.

    Can anyone make any recommendations on courses within a few hours drive of SE Michigan that are still in operation?

    Contact this individual.
    He goes ALL OVER the U.S. and is highly recommended. I'm not sure of his schedule.

    It would be a bit of a drive, but well worth it. Top Gun not sure if it's in Taylor or Southgate, but the trainers they use have a 9-5 job training feds how to shoot, They only offer classes on the weekend, but you get your money's worth. Cheryl and Pete are great. If you go tell them "The Professor" referred you.

    You might try MDFI

    They just had a write up in SWAT magazine.

    Also join the Michigan Gun Owner's Forum. They're a pretty nice bunch of guys and gals (never mind the old curmudgeons) and there is a dedicated section for instructors.

    I believe Massad Ayoob is bringing his training to MI (Kalamazoo perhaps?) in August.

    Thanks for the thoughts guys. Someone who remains nameless posted about a course here

    I'm free on that date and if he's legit, I may go.

    Ayoob's training would be even better, unfortunately I'm already out of town the weekend it starts. Dang.

    Just wanted to say thanks for the link, I'm signed up for this course and hopefully even have found enough ammo to do it.

    I'll be the one with the M&P 9 in a supertuck holster. If anyone else is planning on going, speak up...we'll hang.

    Cycler,

    I have taken 3 pistol classes from Steve Fisher there at MDFI over the last 2 years. I think you are really going to like it, and you won't believe how much you will improve.

    His classes are very reasonably priced, and the classes are usually small, but man do you burn through some ammo. That's where the money goes...right through your gun.

    I wanted to sign up for one his classes this summer as a refresher, but I decided to do some hardware acquisition instead......its sad, but I can either pay for training or buy guns, not both.

    Check out MDFI.com. I just attended the Handgun 1 course and it was great. A definite upgrade for a new CPL holder like myself

    Try Closed Quarters Tactical (CQT). They are located in Chesterfield, MI near 23 mile and Hayes, I think? Might be Gratiot.

    POINT SHOOTING PROGRESSIONS
    Bellevue, Michigan
    Instructor: Roger Phillips



    Experience has proven beyond any argument that the traditional shooting range methods are simply not suitable for reactive gunfighting. In this course you will learn the "Fight Continuum" detailing exactly when point shooting is suitable, how far to extend the pistol to the threat, the various visual indexes, the combat draw and other life saving skills that will have you shooting at speeds previously considered impossible. This material is comprised from material from virtually every threat focused shooting system in existence and refined to fit into a simple progression of instruction. This course distills it all into one well thought out and extremely applicable system that dovetails neatly into the regular Close Range Gunfighting matrix, presenting the full aspect of the integration of sighted and unsighted fire at CQB distances.

    We must point out that THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR THE NOVICE SHOOTER. If you have not received basic instruction, or have a question about your skill level, please call us first.
