    Wisconsin based advanced live fire training?

    Does anyone know if there's a good instructor or center in Wisconsin (or near WI) that teaches a live fire course dedicated to vehicle defense? Shooting from inside and around vehicles. Thanks my Google Fu has failed and it basically gives zero indication of instructor competence.

    Virtual Shooting Range opening at Gander Mountain Madison.

    Full story here. Headline is a bit slanted but what can you really expect from The Cap Times? I'm curious if you can rent the virtual range without an instruction package. The story seemed to indicate it was for use with the instructor lead courses offered there.
