    Welcome to the forum!

    You might try Hoover Tactical: https://www.hoovertactical.com

    I have heard both good and bad about this organization, but I have no direct knowledge. They opened after I moved away, so I have never been there.

    I used to train at a range in Vestavia HIlls, but they have gone out of business.

    All the trainers with whom I am familiar have either quit, died, or retired since I left B'ham in 2000.

    Good luck, and I hope to return to Shelby County eventually.

    Ain't that the truth.

    Even my gunsmith is gone. Of course he told me, 15 years ago, he couldn't get anyone decent to apprentice, so the business would probably disappear when he did.

    Great idea, I'm not too far from Hoover Tactical. There is also a brand new indoor range that opened in Trussville/Clay area, Sheepdog Firearms. I'll try these places out.

    Not from Alabama, but Orange Beach is one of my favorite spots! You have to eat at Lulu's when you go down there!
