A couple of the guys at work have memberships of some kind out there. They say the facility is very nice.

Prices seem reasonable for what you get as well. I'll be making the trip soon to see for myself.

Wait, wait, I thought jrags original question was if anyone had any expirience with Gunsite. So far the single comment having anything to do with Gunsite was one who had "heard" it was not what it once was. I to, would like to hear from someone who has actually been there in the last two years regarding what kind of experience and was it worth the money. Don't get me wrong, I would also love to train at Thunder Ranch, Magpul, Sig Sauer Academy and a bunch of other facilities mentioned, but the question was about Gunsite, does anyone have first hand knowledge of Gunsite?
As for USSA in Tulsa I can't tell you much about their training oher than they have a lot of trainers and adjunct instructors, almost all with a lot of military, LEO, or both experience. I did attend the 2011 "Polite Society Tactical Conference", put on by Rangemasters (Tom Givens) at the USSA facility in Tulsa, and it is indeed a top knotch venue.

When I saw the DVD and all the follow up from Front Sight, my thought was "Finally, someone who knows how to market the gun culture."

Gunsight, Front Sight, Thunder Ranch... I'd jump at the chance for a weekend at any of them.
