    ^ TDI's Handgun I-III is $525, and this means that I won't have to travel.

    I'm going to do it. :smile:

    Anyone else?

    Paid deposit on HE01 for July 12-14, in NE-Ohio.

    By next month, I should know whether I'll also be able to do HE02.

    Aside from Vogel's class in April that rxr is arranging, I'm also going to try to hit at least two Suarez two-day classes (extreme close-quarters and point-shooting) this year. I'll also try to get in some of Cerino, too.

    Hit the big names this year, that's my plan, while hitting the locals up for at least one rep. of each of their intermediate-level classes.

    Well, I'm also signed-in for the HE02 session, July 16-18. :smile:

    Taking Cerino's "Marksmanship Enhancement Clinic" 4-hour mini-seminar on Feb. 18th.

    I'm also taking yet another beginners' level class, this one through Great Lakes Outdoor Supply, in April, a week after Vogel.

    :smile:

    ^ True, but at the same time, TR has facilities......

    ^ Woo Hoo! :smile:

    I hope your bonus will be big enough that you can do HE02, too! :smile:

    ^ I'm not really sure what the weapon platform has to do with this discussion - especially when it's about price - since we're not focusing on a specific-weapon based class, such as Vickers Tactical offerings specific to the 1911 ?

    Besides:

    http://www.nighthawktactical.com/chris-costa.html

    I don't get what the weapons platform has to do with this one. Clint Smith is plenty capable at operating virtually every firearm out there, pistol or otherwise, and his pistol malfunction drills usually takes into account demos on every autopistol that's in the class. :wink:

    I'm not sure either :nod:

    I'm just not a big Costa fan I guess.

    Costa has a Nighthawk for when he is doing a 1911 based class.

    He is real big into HK and S&W M&Ps for his ccw pieces.

    BTW I think you should train with as many Instructors you can no one instructor is the guru of firearms training.

    Costa has been running his 1911 in the recent classes. It doesn't matter anyway, because TSiWRX shoots XDm's. I could loan him a 1911 for this class or a M&P.

    ^ Hey now, I'm gonna bring the "cheater" for sure. :wink: :lol: :)

    ^ I thread I was asked to start, on my "home" Forum, Ohioans For Concealed Carry, where a friend of mine wondered about my reasoning for seeking training from so many different instructors/schools. :smile:

    My "bucket list" appears on page 2, and doesn't include any of the instructors/schools I have already trained with or have locked-in plans of training with this year. Of the latter, aside from Costa, I am currently receiving and/or continue to receive instruction from the following (no particular order):

    Commence FireARMS Academy (Campbell family)
    Three Tango Firearms Academy (Bill Holcomb)
    Lauinger Marksmanship, Inc. (Ron Lauinger)
    Cerino Training Group (Chris Cerino)
    Great Lakes Outdoor Supply/Top Gun Supply (Will Boehnlein)

    And, last but not least, the planned 1911Addicts Bob Vogel class, too. :smile:

    Both the HE01 and the HE02 sessions at the Southington Hunt Club (NE-Ohio) this July are sold-out.
