I have never even heard of this place. Is this some posh facility like Front Sight???

Looks like a top-notch place! It's over around Telluride, CO. Next time I'm ridin' the hawg down in that area I'll stop in and see what it's all about. If & when I do, I'll fill ya'll in with a report.
(Doubt I'll be gettin' one of them memberships anytime soon though)
Check it out!
The centerpiece of the Valhalla Facility is the Scenario House. The scenario rooms include a subway station, bedrooms, kitchen, bar, nightclub, industrial area, the first class section and cockpit of an airliner, a warehouse and many other settings. All the rooms are fully furnished and can contain a number of 3-dimensional, automated and/or paper targets.

It's a one time fee... but that's a Founding Membership and there are only 17 Left.
Training here, however, is no more expensive than anywhere else and our courses are open to the public.
We are not exactly like FrontSight.. there are a lot of significant differnces. For example: we actually have buildings and stuff.

I saw a show about the place on Shooting Gallery. It seems like a nice place.

Looks like a great facility for shooters of all types. The $52K founder memberships are a great idea for you guys to recoup some of the start-up costs, and provide a nice perk package to high profile people.
So Rob a question about where to start in the curriculum? I see there is a 2 day Concealed Carry Tactics course and a 3 day Advanced Concealed Carry Tactics course. There is also the Combat Focus Shooting course. I didn't notice any pre-reqs for any of those three anyway.
My other question, is it possible to combine some clay shooting before or after a course? I would assume it would be based on availability of range time?

There was a piece on this place on the Travel Channel a few months ago, one of those rich and famous get aways where the antis can blow holes in paper and nobody knows that they picked up an "evil" gun. Really posh, but can set up anything you want.
They who give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Heck, our entire 80 acre outdoor public range was started on less than the 52k. :)
