    Guys it is time for me to get on my soapbox and preach against the cult of personality problem I see in the training business - it has always been there, Lord knows the Jeff Cooper cult was off the chart at one time, but with the advent of the Internet and now TV it is reaching new heights

    Everyone needs to remember that all of us instructors, including me, are just guys like you ; we are not perfect, we make mistakes, and we are simply doing the best we can - don't look at us as some kind of Tactical Messiah and hang on our every word - or worse yet fall into that trap of my instructor is better than yours crap

    The best piece of advice I can give everyone is educate yourself to the point you become your own teacher; meaning you have the knowledge base necessary to sort thru the pros and cons of a given situation or technique and decide what makes sense for you

    Just my .02 cents

    Mike, good advice! as another member said, this can apply to more than just AR's. might even make sense to have multiple instructors to be able to adapt different techniques that work for the individual.

    Not my advise but thought I should pass it on. I agree and am planning to start taking some courses under another instructor. I would like to see others here getting involved in classes.
