    Are there any training classes/courses local to the Lancaster area?

    Thanks, I know about Millcreek. I used to belong there and like Mike Ruhl but will never go there again, which is a shame it is only 2 miles from my place. I'll have to check into the other 2

    I was looking more for a self defense class.

    Pretty sure It's too late to register for this course, but look it up.

    Practical Handgun Training

    My father has gone to a few of his courses and talked him into coming to the Heidelberg range and doing his Special Defense Course. Should be a great time.

    Question Re: Local Training Courses

    I was just wondering why you won't go to Mill Creek Sportsman's club.
