I’m aware of the big names like Gunsite and Thunder Ranch, but they are way far away and quite expensive. I’m in northern KY and would like to get some quality training on defensive handgun use. Anybody want to recommend a good trainer within a few hours drive of the Cincinnati area? Google turns up a bunch of people with websites but many don’t have any classes on their calendars and/or don’t offer much confidence that they would be anything other than ‘Bubba’s Fill ‘um Full of Lead Academy.’ I’m looking for something that’s more advanced than the basic CCW permit training class. I want to learn the stuff I don’t already know about techniques and tactics to survive an armed encounter. It would really be helpful to hear from someone who has actually taken one of their classes.
