    I've been trying to convince my wife to make a "shooting vacation" of it. She's really not open to the idea though. Wants to take the kids to Disney World.

    Sigh. Maybe when the kids are a bit older....
    I always open carry one of my Kimber 1911 pistols everywhere I go. Usually in a paddle holster. Nothing fancy, but it works for me.

    I have heard mixed things. If I had to guess percentages, about 2/3that they offer fair to good trainingand 1/3 that they are a bit over-commercialized.

    The training has nothing to do with cults -- it's about shooting guns!

    I was offered a free 4 day handgun class there (I paid for travel costs) and it was worth the cost. I doubt that I would go if I had to pay the 'full' price, but the 'discount' certificate prices are more reasonable. I can't compare it to any similar shooting schools, as I have only been to FS so far.

    Proof?

    I've read numerous articles stating that scientology is declining. So whatever he's doing it isn't working.

    I'm a member and haven't been yet but I hope to go within a year or so.

    Well when I was there in May not one word that I recall was spoken about religion. As I tell my friends he is a master at selling things, but he is also offering a product of value.

    After I pay and get my training I don't care if he is giving his money to Scientology, hookers in Parhump or the girl scouts. I am getting value for my money.

    I have classes scheduled in Oct and Dec, I won't got there in the summer time and they do close up for some of the summer and open up Front Sight Alaska.
    Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.
