Army, KSARNG, Hunter's safety course, and sleeping in a Holiday Inn Express!
How could you have a slogan like "freedom is slavery" when the concept of freedom has been abolished?

Geee willikers, one can get training for this stuff? I certainly know the recent CCL class wouldn't qualify for much training. Punched a few holes back in mid 70's with college NROTC rifle and pistol team.

Army Infantry, 16 months (12 in Mosul, 4 in Baghdad) in Iraq, and ditto the Holiday Inn Express. So does the HIE count as legal expertise? 'Cause if it does, I might have to change my answer.

I'd add more choice if it were my poll. For example what is extensive? I day and 200rds? 3 days and 1000rds? 6000 hours and 100,000rds? Define it. As it is you'll have guys with 4 hours defining it as extensive and others with 80 hours saying not extensive.

It would be nice to have more options but a mere 4 choices for each of three subjects would mean a poll with 64 combinations....

So far as defining "extensive", I thought about it but then I figured that the thread would turn into an argument about what is or is not extensive. So, I left it at your own opinion of whether or not your traing is extensive.

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.

Well, I have some martial arts, and some competition/tactical pistol class, and some legal (CCW class). We practice lots, and are beginning to ramp up our run-n-gun exercises. I don't call any of this "extensive", but I don't feel "duuuuuhhhhh" was a good answer either. That is what I put, because the little training I have is sadly closer to "duuuuuhhhhh" than extensive. Maybe I need to train more? We could always use more training.
