45gunner, is this a first class (of any kind) for you or your buddies? I've always been curious to know how FS stacks up against other schools.
I have attended several schools, none of which are available to the general public. I'll be able to answer your question when I get back from Front Sight after the 20th of the month.
For the rest of my buddies, it will be the first formal training for any of them other than the training I have given them. Two of the shooters in our group have limited firearms experience.
