Are you taking the UT concealed permit class too?
I looked over Blueline's site & shop. It's not bad but I didn't take any of the classes there. The cadre & mgmt seem competent.
The SIG Sauer Academy & the S&W programs(Springfield MA) are not far away from Westchester County NY.
Both gun companies have highly skilled, respected instructors who teach tactics, gun safety, home defense-protection, etc.
