Ok, here’s what I don’t get as far as the whole CCW and defensive shooting goes – where are all the classes? I understand that there are plenty of CCW classes (I’ve completed one, it cost $175 for an 8hr class…but that’s not what I’m talking about) and plenty of ranges to practice shooting in a relaxed environment without any distractions at an unmoving piece of paper. What I think there is a massive need for is some sort of training center, lets be honest here, this country really needs places to teach ppl to shoot, not to fire a gun, but to asses and shoot with deadly force – example, I use to box, I didn’t need to learn how to swing a punch, I already new that, what I needed to learn was how to place my punches with power, accuracy and speed in high stress situations with lights, noise and onlookers causing distractions. Now if I wanted to do that, or Karate or anything similar I would have no end of places to go for classes of 1-2 hr lessons a couple of times a week, resulting, eventually in a highly trained fighter/boxer. On that note, the govt has given me a license to carry a concealed firearm, touch wood n all that, but what if I have to use it? I’m not military or LE and only have less than a years worth of experience with firearms, so now you have a civilian with little to no experience in a high pressure situation with a loaded gun…Awesome! Now I’m not belittling anyone’s (or my own) experience here or skill with a gun at a range (but range V real life deadly situation), anyone who has ever boxed or even been in a fight will tell you there is a world of difference between hitting a bag and standing up to someone who’s swinging at you and trying to hurt you, training helps you to deal with that and to survive if not win such an encounter. So where are courses/classes, something that can be reasonably joined – not $100 –$200 daily courses but something ppl can go to once/twice a week to build up the training & expertise needed to deal and survive such an encounter? Any thoughts?
