Gabe Suarez: Extreme Close Range Gunfighting II

I attended this class in Tyler, TX last week. All I can say is wow! Gabe is a fabulous instructor. The entire class is done from concealment and on the move. The airsoft force on force segment is very eye opening. This class and Gabe both rank right up with the best. If you ever get a chance to train with Gabe, jump on it.

In Tyler, TX? I live close by and was able to attend a Rangemaster Combative Pistol course a few months back over there.

Where'd you hear about this class so I can keep an eye/ear out in the future? I didn't hear a thing about it and try to take advantage of every firearm related event going on in my neck of the piney woods.

Were you guys at the outdoor range or one of the indoor ranges?

Glenn Matthews runs many course for Gabe in Tyler Texas, but it appears as if he has not put his 2009 schedule up yet.

Sweatnbullets...I didn't know Glenn arranged the training classes, but come to think of it I believe he coordinated the Rangemaster class with Tom Givens as well. Thanks for opening my eyes to that, I'll be hollering at him shortly about any more upcoming training events.

I thought it was odd because I usually hear about training classes through the "gun guy email chain" out here. Especially the training events and shooting events sponsored/attended by big names.

As SI and WT grows at an expedential rate, the courses are filling up inside of the SI and WT community. There is no need to market outside of that community. 98% of my students come from that community. I post my courses at eight other forums and they make up the remainig 2%.

It just comes down to "what/where is the effective marketing."
