    I hear EAG is good but they arent all that local.

    Plus they make you train with a pistol as part of their carbine courses except for the Introductory one and I am not convinced a pistol has a place in a tactical environment if you have access to a Carbine.

    (Plus I am frankly quite good with handgun already and want to spend my time training with the primary weapon, the carbine which is the high-payoff equipment for me, not a handgun... and i know the "what if" are gonna come out, but if you own a reliable carbine and know how to clear stoppages, its difficult to justify the extra weight for a pistol and its ammo, which might be better used for water or more carbine ammo.)

    Now in a police and/or security contractor Philosophy of use, (POU) back-up pistol packing might, make sense but I am neither and in the event that I am armed on duty it will be with an M4.

    Is there anything else around that's within say 3-6 hours drive from Northern Virginia and offers carbine classes?

    Check out what Silver Eagle Group has to offer. www.silvereaglegroup.com

    I am a member there and while I have not taken their carbine class, it has an excellent reputation. It's a great range, too, btw.
