    The last training class i took was basically a guy running a group of people through drills i could find on youtube.

    he also "accidently" hit a kid in the nuts and dropped him to the ground.

    i will never again pay someone to run me through drills.

    Oh I know. I was just busting balls.

    OP,

    If you're from East Stroudsburg.
    You should look into http://www.dtsllc.com/
    They are from near the area and hold several classes at Pocono Pistol; as well as several other nearby ranges.

    they are good people. cheap too and the outdoor range is what one would expect with much less of the SGL circus because you are being watched and you will be thrown out. in my experience it isn't a "good 'ol boys" club either, just follow the rules and no one gives you shit. i've never done the whole meetings thing, just pay and shoot, never used their hunting grounds either.

    my ffl, and member here, has sponsored awards in the past there but i'm not sure if all competitions have awards or just bragging rights.

    i'm going to pm you in about 8 months when the ground turns green again.
