Training/Classes

How many of you guys are actively pursuing firearms training, and who are you training with? Usually LE/Mil answers are different from civilian ones, and I would love to see both.

Any bucket list trainers you want to throw out there for the rest of us?

I think I am three years into this, so I'm still a newb. I grew up with guns and hunting, and I've competed in benchrest rimfire, skeet, and trap, in formal competition. But none of that actually prepared me to carry a firearm daily, or for use as a home defense weapon.

The trainers I've been to who are pretty well known, are : Tom Givens, Brian Hill (just starting to become nationally recognized), Scott Jedlinksi, Bill Blowers, and most recently Chuck Pressburg.

I've grown tremendously as a shooter, as a result of each of those classes. they taught different things. Tom has put together the an outstanding curriculum for the defensive pistol shooter, and how that works for you in daily life. He also gets in your head a little about how things happen. Brian coaches you physically and mentally, and is one of the most gifted teachers I've ever encountered in any setting .Jedi shows you how to go fast...really fast. Bill shows you what a freak of nature he is and what you should be accepting as okay and what is not. Chuck teaches you why accuracy is final, and anything outside of the 9 ring might have you hitting the neighbor as well.
The No fail Pistol class from Presscheck consulting, scrambled my noodle pretty well. It wasn't about manipulating a firearm, but about reading what the dot an the trigger are telling you, and not breaking a shot when the info doesn't support it. I'm talking about weeks of introspection to decide if I even have any business carrying a firearm. Chuck is an awesome dude, and a great instructor. We spent two days shooting B8 repair centers from 25 yards, freestyle, SHO, & WHO. I performed more accurately than I knew was possible. He constantly screwed with me about my speed, and how much time I have left to get better hits, instead of breaking the shot too early for some mental timer, and getting okay hits.

This year I will be training with Jedi, Greg Ellifritz, Blowers, Larry Lindenman, Brian Hill and Tim Herron....so far.


Let's hear some of your best classes and best instructors, as well as bucket list classes and instructors.

All of my training is from the military: Coaches Course, Primary Marksmanship Instructor's Course, Close Combat Instructor Course, Close Quarters Battle Course, Combat Marksmanship Instructor Trainer, Combat Instructor and Small Arms Weapons Instructor Course. Those were decades ago.

I do not have any civilian training other than the required concealed carry course (not required anymore in my state). I train mostly on my own, but have stopped the last couple years due to the ammo shortage, mainly primers and powder shortage.

There is one guy out in town who does defensive shooting from vehicles that I wanted to give a try.

I used to train at a place called Patriot protection. It was 1 hr of classroom then 1 hour of range and 1 hour of sim training which I do not miss. I still have a significant scar on my trigger finger.

I have not even been to the range in over a year. I may go today

I want to train with Voda, he is obviously the best if you watch this vid.

+ YouTube Video

I haven't done anything in over 2 years. Prior to that I was doing a lot of handgun training with monarch defense out of California. I burned through about 5k 9mm rounds in a little over 2 years. I miss it. He no longer comes to Florida because of COVID and he purchased a massive property where he has been dumping a ton of time and money into the facilities for every type of firearm training and scenario.

Made me start looking into places since the place I used to go closed.

I found this place but it is a long drive.

BLM, I've heard of Monarch, but can't remember why that name sticks out to me. There's some quality instruction in Florida, and some top shelf guys travel there. It's just a matter of catching them in your area.

Jipped, that place has some red flags just from the brief overview, but they may be great. When you advertise "Russian Martial Art Systema," and your Facebook page has lots of bladework and a chick holding a sword, I'm giving a bit of side eye.
Also, I believe you will have to train with his spin off...D.U.S.T Detroit Urban Survial Tactics of some goofy stuff. I think I read that Voda is doing porn now. He's got to be better at it than defensive stuff. lol

Greg Ellifritz just moved to that area, but he does lots of traveling classes. I'm sure he will offer them local too. There are some outstanding trainers in Texas, I guess like all the others, it's a matter of matching up timing and/or travel.


I'm shooting my second Steel Challenge Match this weekend, and really looking forward to it. That's 180* from the direction that Blowers and Pressburg have pushed me, but it's what I have close by. Maybe some USPSA in the near future though.

Who knows man. Russian martial arts system does sound better than sambo though.

Always training, at least once if not twice a month on the range with rifle and handgun. Could be 50 rounds or 300, just depends on the day and how I feel. All of my training was in LE work then became one of our instructors. I do get to go to shooting schools simply to maintain certification but itís nothing really that exciting. Pickup on a few things on occasion. Static shooting has always sucked is one thing I can confirm.

My next door neighbor's son gave him a tricked out colt gold cup for Xmas. He finally got around to showing it too me over the weekend.

He told me he is going to one of his old pal's land to shoot it. His pal does 3 gun. He asked if I wanna go. I said .... YEAH! We will see if it comes to fruition. I hope so. i have never trained with a shotty and have minimal training with AR.
