    Who do you guys think offers the best nearby training courses? I'm interested mostly in handgun training. Or is it better to plan a trip to one of the famous ones?

    Locally you can't go wrong with Steve Fisher.
    kayufish2(at)aol.com

    Steve will teach you stuff you never imagined you could do.
    He also carries the respect of some of the big names in training.
    No need to drive 300 miles and stay in a hotel. Spend that money on ammo.

    Looks good. Are the courses always in Battle Creek? That's a bit of a hike from Detroit.

    Steve Fisher is an excellent trainer, and I highly recommend his classes. My husband and I have trained with Steve as well as Gunsite, TDI and Lous Chiodo. We enjoyed all of them, and Steve's training is right up there with the big name classes. After training with Steve, there were no surprises at any of them. Steve is offering a Pistol 1 class on July 1, and I know it's filling up fast. Currently, most of his classes are being offered if Battle Creek, but it would be a good idea to email Steve to find out if he'll be offering anything closer to the Detroit area. I can tell you that Steve's classes are well worth the drive, and you wont regret it.

    On a more basic level, we also offer classes at K&M Tactical Response Academy. We offer the CPL classes as well as the basic introductory advanced level handgun training, including drawing from the holster, speed and tactical reloads, etc. This is on a much more basic level than what Steve does, and many of our students go on to train with Steve. We have a class coming up on Aug. 11 in the Chelsea area.

    Battle Creek is a lot closer than Arizona or the far southeast of Ohio or who knows where else.
    Set something up at your home range. I'm sure Steve can be flexible if it fits with his own training regimine.

    I agree. It's a lot closer for the same caliber of training. If you set something up at your local range, especially if you have a group of students willing to learn, I'm sure you can arrange to have Steve come to you.

    Well it seems like Mr. Fisher is the man. I'll have to work out a bit of a road trip probably. Thanks for the info everyone! Any further recommendations are of course welcome.:thumbsup:

    He's out of town for a couple of days, so if he doesn't respond right away, be patient. I know he has a couple of openings in class this Sunday for Pistol I..if you're interested, shoot him an email and let him know.

    I'll probably have to attend a little further down the road but thanks for the heads-up anyway!

    Jim,
    A nerve thing called "Idiopathic Brachial Neuritis" in the left shoulder. Starts out with a fair amount of pain which dissipates and then you lose the ability to move the shoulder muscles properly, thankfully nothing wrong with the joint itself. The only thing that heals it is time. Doing some physical therapy to keep it from atrophying too much.
