I've heard the same from others who's opinions I respect.

The guy who became famous on here for shooting himself in the leg (video "I just Fucking shot myself!") was a student of Tactical Response and sang there praises too.....just saying.

Try several, take away what you like, leave the rest. Frontsight is by far the best school I have attended in the area of weapons manipulation, but unfortunately it leaves a lot to be desired from the practical application and tactics perspective. I took a Patrolling class with one of Gabe's lead instructors, Eric Pfleger recently and was very impressed with his curriculum, emphasis on safety, learning, and training hard. Two years ago I spent time with Pat Goodale of PGPFT in advanced handgun and their were plenty of "experts" there who had sloppy presentations, marginal safety, and the absence of any after-action drills. The point is, try several and take the best with you, even if that means leaving it all.
once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is enemy action.

I didnt read this whole thread, but I can say from the positive reviews I got, http://www.riflesonly.com/ might be a place to look into.

I had a co worker go through the course . . . I unfortunately havent been able to afford it.

Louie Awerbuck is a great guy and a great instructor. I've attended his classes and hosted him for a class. You and your students will not be disappointed.
