Tactical firearm instructors info

Anyone ever hear of Andy Staford or Louis Awerbuck?

I've take an Andy course with Paul Gomez as his partner. Well worth it. Interesting guy.

We did a fair amount of Sul stuff. Not so sure it's for me for various reasons. One is that I have some limited movement in my shooting wrist but that's a different issue. It was a worthwhile presentation.

Some good car techniques.

Have met Andy Stanford during a LEO Firearms Instructor Seminar several years ago in NJ. I think the course he instructed us on was "Surgical Speed Shooting". He's a stand up guy, no BS, no chest thumping, etc.

He also posts over on GT.

Steve, I thought chest thumping was mandatory on GT LOL. Thanks for the input.

I’ve known Louis for two decades and have taken many classes with him. I consider him one of the very best Tier One trainers in the business. I never cease to be amazed at his diagnostic skills.

I know Andy, and while I think he’s a good guy, have never personally taken classes from him so I can’t comment on his instructional abilities.
