    Hello from New York (state)

    Hi all. Iíve been carrying a Glock 43 for about 3 years now. It was my first handgun but I grew up with rifles and shotguns hunting and shooting competitive skeet. Looking to really up my training and mindset. When I first started carrying I took a few defensive classes and one class that also included a law portion but I want to learn and grow much more. Trying to find more hands on training but options seem to be limited around here.

    I live in New York north of NYC and am lucky to live in a county where full carry is granted without needing a ďproper cause.Ē Unfortunately (but not really because I love my job), Iím a teacher in a public school so I canít carry my gun or even leave it in my car in the parking lot. So Iím forced to carry on the weekends and if I go back out after work.

    Iím looking to learning from and talking with people who have a lot more to offer than myself.

    Welcome from Iowa. Glad to see teachers that are gun friendly.

    Sorry your options on hands on training are limited.
    Your only option may be to enroll in some of the week long and weekend course at various places around the country.
    Think of it as a vacation.
    Back when I was younger I would spend the week learning a skill and the wife would go sightseeing

    That seems to be the plan. The Sig Sauer academy is about 4 hours from here. Seems to be an amazing resource for training that Iíll prob work towards. It isnít cheap but highly regarded.

    Welcome from Central NY. For some training you may want to check our Chris Fry from MDTS. He does travel around the NY state a bit for some classes.
    Good luck.

    I know quite a few guys who teach who are gun friendly. The rest are actually very gun neutral. When a select few colleagues do get going about how ďunnecessarily and evilĒ guns are, I just stay out of the conversation.
