Is there a dedicated handgun training facility anywhere near NW Florida?

Thanks.

For competition specific training, your best local resource is Rodney May’s “Advance Competitive Pistol” Course up at Altus Shooting Solutions in north Baker. I’ve taken that course from him, and recently took his Intro to Pistol course because I wanted my wife to take a class with me. He’s long winded and likes to tell lots of stories and repeat himself, but he does know his stuff and is a GM in USPSA and shot for Team Sig.

Let me ask you this though; what is your current classification, and have you ever taken any formal weapons classes outside of CCW/police/military?

Thanks. I have not classified yet but I'm sure I would be low. I have only taken basic hunter safety and CCW classes.

Then I wouldn’t worry about competition specific courses at this point, but just a general fundamentals based course.

Shameless plug for myself: I’m about to start offering such classes at Escambia River Gun Club.
