    Why would they offer this training to instructors that are NOT Personal Protection certified? Shooting at a target with a squirt gun is not that popular.

    Why would you need to be personal protection certified? Its an independent certification course.

    Protection certification would be applicable to anyone intending to use this training for protection purposes. How much of this training is orientated toward target shooting and how much is for defensive tatics ?

    Not trying to be disrespectful but $300 seems awful pricey. Sabre's own course listed on their site is only $150

    http://www.sabrered.com/servlet/the-...tor/Categories

    I know of others that are well below $300

    Can you add anything to justify the price of this course?

    Thanks in advance

    Everything posted in my opening post is what is contained in the material. That is directly from Sabre.

    I'm not familar with the $150 course other than to say that it appears to be a LE certification course. This course that we are hosting is for NRA instructors to train civilians. The $300 fee is all going to Sabre. We are merely hosting the course and are not profiting from the class. I guess you could call Sabre and ask them why the difference in price. I can't answer on their behalf.
