      Recommended Course or School in Florida?

      I have been shooting for just the past several years. I am sometimes at the range every week and other times I let months get away from me before I make it back for some practice.

      I want to get faster and more accurate and learn some defensive techniques. To that end, I plan on attending some type of defensive shooting course this summer. I have found a couple schools here in Florida, but I would like to ask if anyone can give me any recommendations so I can get the best bang for my buck and time spent. Keep in mind, I still consider myself a novice.

      Thank you.

      I'd look very closely at Randy Cain and Frank Garcia:

      http://www.frankgarciausa.com/usa2.html#descriptions

      Randy is more defense-oriented while Frank leans more toward competition. Randy is more Gunsite "Modern Technique" while Frank is of the post-modern school of thought.

      I have talked to people who have graduated from both schools, and all report the training to be excellent no matter which you choose.

      Excellent. It looks like Randy is offering just what I'm looking for. I hope he will be adding more courses for later in the year.

      Thank you for the recommendation

      I know a few people who recommend the SigArms Academy. They occationally travel around to thevarious ranges and offer classes. I wish I had some links or details, but a range near me has a poster up with some dates that the SigArms instructors will be there doing classes. I'll be going to the range tomorrow and if I slap myself enough I may remember to write down the web address if they have one.

      I'm in FL too BTW, Broward county area.
