Don't knock it if you haven't tried it, and with the right instructor.

I've had my share of outdoor classes at Gunsite and with various instructors elsewhere. So I have some bases on which to opine that the indoor classes put on by Louis Awerbuck at Reed's were valuable.

Of course for that sort of class, the class takes the entire bay and doesn't use the target runners. Instead, target stands are set up in front of the backstop. It's just like outdoors, but without the sky (and the weather). And of course simulator (shoot house) type exercises can't be done. However, Louis is doing Force-on-Force using airsoft guns (I haven't take one of those classes --- yet).
