    I don't think 2 days, 3 days even a week is enough time to teach or learn anything of substance.....that's barely enough time to cover safety...( remember, everyone there might not be up to speed or on the same level).
    So depending on the price of these courses...you have to decide for yourself is it worth it..
    That goes for all these so called courses, camps and such.
    Most all this type training has to build from previous skill sets, not something that can be taught in a couple days.

    Good points. While they do expose you to different topics, you have to train regularly in order for it to become muscle memory and more instinct than "thinking" - more second nature.

    Exactly....touches on that in the handgun thread with the semi auto v/s revolver topic.....once clearing malfunctions becomes second nature, doing it without even thinking about it.....youlle feel comfortable carrying a semi auto, until then a revolver is the best idea...build up from one level to the next....
    One of my biggest pet peaves with these type courses is when ppl build up ppls expectations with claims of being ex RANGER, or ex seal or ex CIA...( such as this guy) and hinting, insinuating, whatever that they can train you like that or give you those skills in a week long course.....when i see these i think, so you can train ppl in a week what took me a year to learn, just to get to where the real learning started?...lol...sorry, cannot be done.....too much comes into play..
    But they give that idea and ppl eat it up....
    Now are there things in there you could actually use??? Sure, but those things you could probably learn elsewhere for a far cheaper investment and use the savings for other skills.

    Great points, Paul. I always think the same thing when I see self-defense classes for people. They try to convince the people that they can take out a 300-pound biker with a couple quick jabs. It gives people if anything, a false sense of security at best, and makes it downright dangerous at worst.

    Here is a little informational booklet on things to think about if you're involved in a self-defense shooting. I am not promoting or trying to sell Carry Guard, it just happens to be something I ran across.

    Is Appendix Carry Safe?

    This just hurts to watch. Good thing they replay it 92 times! :p

    ouch...yep, that's why I don't carry appendix set ups....rather carry on the side or around back, too much in the front I would rather not lose, lol.....also why I don't care for glock or really any gun that don't have an external safety...
