    Exclamation I have FTD – Firearms Training Deficiency.

    Hello....my name is Gary in Pennsylvania and I have Firearms Training Deficiency.

    I'm guilty.

    I have learned so much from all of you here on PAFOA....I really appreciate you and this site as a resource.

    But the most valuable takeaway I have from you all is that I now know what I don't know.
    Without this site, I'd never know how critical firearms courses/training is. (To include retention training - especially since I OC).

    I don't know NEARLY what I should about my firearm....How it is best deployed.....Situation/threat management...etc.


    Please, I’d like this thread to be a place where you can post links/names of training sites, seminars, classes, etc HERE IN PENNSYLVANIA.

    Share the names of your books and manuals. What has helped you become a better, safer armed citizen?
    Tell us – which, if any, training was a real eye-opener?
    And which classes should the novice armed citizen begin with?

    I know that bits and pieces of this have been discussed on the site before……but it gets lost in the history.

    With how critical training is…..maybe this thread, or even a new appropriately titled one, can be stickied?

    Keep the arguing out. This thread is the toolbox. Your contributions are the tools. As for the who/what/when/where/why disagreements regarding the tools? ----Take ‘em to a new thread.

    Thanks for helping to free me of the “Mire of FTD”!

    Ahhhhh.....

    Goes to show where I spend MOST of my time in PAFOA.

    I just scrolled down the main page and saw it here:

    My bad.

    I'll work on the cure in there.

    1. NE PA is not exactly a hub, but you have:

    http://www.suarezinternational.com/tech.html

    -- has a perfect starting course in Topton in May, then more advanced courses in Wellsboro in September.


    2. Plenty of training in Harrisburg, if you want to drive there:

    I highly recommend Insights courses. Particularly if Greg Hamilton is teaching.

    Gary,

    KINGCOR is teaching the NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home Training Course on Sunday April 6, 13, and 20 at The Matamoras Rod And Gun Club.

    This is a 14 hour NRA approved program and will be 7 hours on the 6th and 13th, and the 20th will be about a 1-1/2 hour lesson on the legal aspects of concealed carry and self-defense conducted by an attorney.
