Has anyone actually been out there for class?

 

Thoughts on the place?

 

I know any contact with them generates an avalanche of up sell e-mails

Yes, I'm a member.
I enjoyed the training, thought it was well done.
Will likely return this summer.

I've been there.  The training is excellent.  You can find training certificates on Ebay at a discount.   I went there with some friends from my church.

I took the 4-day Defensive Handgun Course. I could not get over how it felt to be among so many like-minded people!!

Dozens of entire family's carrying (unloaded, holstered) all over from Grandparents to 12 year-olds. 

 

The training was very good, expending over 600 rounds in the 4 day period, all drawing from the holster (unlike most ranges in Illinois).

Many 100's more in dry-fire practice. 

 

As Junglebob stated, certificates are available. Many people return several times per year just for fun.

There is also unarmed, and blade defense training available.

 

overall, if i had a family, i would seriously consider membership.
