    Shooting classes

    So just wondering a few things that maybe some folks can lend some input from different perspectives.

    In regards to say Pistol/Carbine courses what is the average shooter looking for? If say the company was set up to teach beginner thru advanced courses, what are some of the things that would really matter to you?

    Instructor background experience? LE or military? Former Special Operations guys?

    Price depending on amount of training involved or rounds expended.

    Facility conditions

    Instructor to student ratio

    Defensive methodology, mindset, resiliency, vignettes?

    How in depth would you want to learn? basic safety and fundamentals or drill into hot and cold walls as it pertains to a home invasion scenario.

    Would you be interested in leaning basic level ballistics so as to better choose your defensive caliber etc.

    Granted this list is not all inclusive and many of you guys already know what I am talking about, but I am just looking for some feedback from fellow gun enthusiast whether seasoned or not as to what would have mattered to you to learn at the outset of your hobby or what you would still like to learn after knowing all that you do.

    Thanks for your input.

    Background or experience in LEO or Military not important to me.

    Price important but not critically so

    Facility not important

    Instructor to student ratio I would like it to be no more than 12:1

    Defensive methodology medium level of importance - as long is it does not get too talky

    In depth of instruction important to me I would want more advanced

    Interesting timing as I am looking for some advanced training. To me;
    Being prior mil/LEO I do prefer instructors from this background (Having said this if given the chance I would sure love to take a class with Jerry or Rob lol.)
    Price is important to me do to my personal responsibilities.
    Smaller student to teacher ratio is something I would be willing to pay more for.
    Mindset/philosophy/ammo choice discussions would be welcome, but secondary to actual live fire tactics execution.
    Facility conditions would also be secondary to me. If they meet training needs and are safe that's good enough for me.

    I would be interested in this provided the scheduling works.. sadly I travel for work a lot so I have to make sure I am in town and caught up on my honey-do list when it happens.
