Man I wish I had your time and $. 

 

Go to Tennessee and take a class at Valor Ridge with Reid Henrichs so I can be even more jealous.

living in chicago it's hard to find any pistol training within a reasonable drive (3 hours or less). ugh.

We're right in Park Ridge and glenview. Stick with Black Flag and you can't go wrong.

Most of our defensive and advanced coursework is at out private range about a 45 minute drive west of the city.

And don't fret. Our indoor simunitions training is coming soon. Very soon.

I plan on taking a class from everyone I listed this year. And it's not about time and money, it is about having the drive to do it. Make the time to do it and don't spend money on things not needed to pay for training classes.

Definitely hope to get in on some force-on-force training. Also want to start getting into some carbine... And of course more pistol. :D

I take it you have never been married with small children as well as a business owner.

I found a place I'm going to be taking defensive training from in May at Trigger Farm near Newark, IL.  A little over one hour drive from me.  Sort of half way between me and Starved Rock.   Take the class in the morning, and go hiking in the afternoon.  Can't get much better than that.

 

It's a 3-hour class at $50.  Seemed like a decent place.  I figured for the money, why not give it a shot (no pun intended).

Come on down fellas. We've had a bunch of Illinoisans ... including a couple of Chicago PD guys who paid their own way.:-)

Will you let a slacker like me into one of your classes JJ? Need to sign up for one once it warms up.
