    Does anyone have any suggestions as to the differences between Firearms Academy of Seattle and Oregon Firearms Academy?

    Both are about equidistant from us and I was looking at doing a weekend tactical course for both my wife and I. Suggestions or experiences would be great!

    I would suggest FAS. I've taken 2 courses there so far and will be going back soon. You get top notch instructors! :celebrate

    Like Kraz, I can unconditionally recommend FAS; I've had great experiences there.

    What I can't do is compare it to OFA, given that I have no experience there; for all I know they might be every bit as good as FAS.

    This is kind of off topic, but has anyone taken the FAS Defensive Shotgun Class? I'm considering taking that class in the Spring.

    Marty: If you're reading this, is there a place online where students can offer up comments about classes they have taken there?

    No there isn't. We sometimes get mentioned on forums such as this though. Regarding what you will get in our FAS Defensive Shotgun Class, is 8 hours of manipulation and shooting instruction, with a small dose of classroom work to break up the physical aspect of the class. I would say this class exceeds most police training with that weapon. It is geared for the person choosing a shotgun for home defense. Hope that helps.

    Regarding the original post FAS v. OFA, I can say with some degree of certainty, that OFA is a class act, and if you go there, you should not be dissapointed. I haven't trained with them personally, but all the reports I hear are good. A few of their students and instructors have come here, and all have acquitted themselves well.

    I suggest you come here to FAS, and your wife go to OFA. When you get back, have a shoot off, and report back who is the winner! (Just kidding).

    Thanks Marty. I have known about OFS for a while but just learned of FAS here on this site. Have some research today.

    The shootout probably won't happen (unless I screw up something/somewhere and tick her off again.) We like to train together and work as a team!
