My questions are:

1: Should I ask around at shops, especially the one where I purchased my gun (and which I like) for trustworthy and effective instructors?

2: Given that I know little about the most effective techniques, drills, and instruction methods, how do I gauge the quality of those offering classes/courses?

3: How much does good hourly instruction for beginners typically cost (if there is such a thing as a typical cost)?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice.
I live in S Carolina, and got great basic gun training at <>.In November, Massad Ayoob will be conducting a course there as well.............DOC
