I`ve had no real training (just infantry, MP, hunter safety, and CCW) and hope to go to my first class this year if money allows. After reading a lot of books and watching DVDs, I see a problem in mission drift. Most stuff I`ve seen is more oriented to police or shtf scenerios.
I want to search out a trainer who is focused on SD/HD -- me versus a burglar at o,dark:30. Local means more money and time training and more opportunity to dump the instructor if he doesn`t work out right.
