    Does anybody know of any good tactical firearm courses in Michigan? I'm thinking I want to go through one. Not basic training, but clearing rooms, etc... I'd like to focus on handgun use, but anything else would be useful too...

    I don't know, this thought just came to me, and it sounds interesting and useful, but I don't know of any places in Michigan, that's where you smart people come in.

    Check out http://michigantrainer.com/

    I took a combat handgun course from one of their instructors, through a special event sponsered by SAFR, an organization that I belong to, INSTEAD of MCGRO, which is, in the words of Rod Collins*, "a once great pro-2nd amendment organization."

    Thanks everyone. I think I'll hit up michigantrainer.com. Has anybody taken the Handgun I course? It looks like I have to take it to take the others, but I wonder how basic it is.

    Let me put it this way. It may be "basic" as fas as the instructor is concerned, but it teaches you quite a bit, that can be used to further your abilities with a firearm. If you check out the description, you should get an idea what it teaches.

    That course sounds really good to me too! I can afford the class, but I think right now the ammo would break the bank. Maybe a fall class will come up!

    All I can say is, I've taken training from Steve, and he is an excellent instructor. I have to warn you, he does not stand for any ******** on the range. So, if you take his course, be sure you follow his instructions. If you have a question about anything, don't hesitate to ask him.

    That's fine, I don't like to deal with crap when I take people to the range either.

    I only mentioned it, as I've personally seen some people who just didn't pay attention to instructions.
