Gunman, I have taken several classes with them, including a lot of tactical pistol classes, and have learned a lot in all of them, and really enjoyed them. Great value for what you learn, go for it Man. Also, I know that they don't have all the flash and show of some of the other groups, thats because they have been there and there is no real glory in war.
If you find any others down here that are good let me know,
The following course is being taught by instructors from Tactical Response and is being hosted by a local guy from Shelby, NC. If you are serious about personal defense and home defense, I'm convinced this is one of the best courses available. I'm going and this will be my first course. Check it out. Shelby, NC March 23/24 2009.

The root word to "gunfight" isn't "gun".
It is "FIGHT"!
This is the course everyone is talking about! It is the most comprehensive 2-day handgun class in the world! This course is literally a life saver. Our Fighting Pistol course prepares you to prevail in a real world violent confrontation and many students have gone on and done just that! This intensive course covers an incredible amount of material in just two days and we have been told that it covers more than any 5 day course at the "big schools".
Topics include the role and attributes of the handgun, legal aspects of deadly force, anatomical stopping power, mental conditioning for combat, movement and communication. Live fire drills include both one- and two-handed shooting, shooting on the move, use of cover and concealment, tactical-emergency-and speed loading, using both eye level and retention techniques, at a variety of ranges and from a variety of body positions. This course is about 40% lecture on mindset, tactics, skill, and legal issues but don’t worry because you will still be shooting a minimum of 750 rounds while you are on the range!
We respectfully request that students have read "The Principles of Personal Defense" by Jeff Cooper before attending class. If possible we also recommend “Surgical Speed Shooting” by our friend Andy Stanford. These and many other items from our gear list are available at Tactical Response Gear
