    Would this course satisfy the training/safety requirement for a FL nonresident permit?

    Good question. I'm going to say no because it does not cover any of the class room stuff. The instructor also does a CCW class that includes class room time to go over laws ect and a 200 round defensive shooting course.

    Here is the web site and contact info for the instructor.

    Thanks for the info. Even if the course does not satisfy the safety requirement for a FL permit, it nevertheless seems like a good course to take, and the price isn't too bad. The $300 I got for my stimulus check should cover it all.

    Ya $95 for the class + $129.00 for 400 rounds of .45 acp + $23.00 for a double mag pouch for a total of $247.00.

    If you end up taking this tactical class you could probably just take the classroom part of Norms concealed class and qualify to get your permit.

    Well, I just got home from the tactical class and it was amazing. Lost of great drills and stuff I can work on at home. We shot action right, left, rear, two hands, one handed (left and right). At multiple targets (up to 16 targets!), shooting while retreating, shooting behind cover, and shooting in a hostage situation. I think one of the sweetest drills we did was the worst case scenario drill. Active threat, gun malfunctions, one arm is disabled, and we have to clear the malfunction, reload and continue to engage the threat.

    Anyone in the Tampa area I highly recommend the class. Well worth the money.

    Also very happy with my Kimber Ultra carry II. I put over 400 rounds through her today without a single issue.

    Here are a few pics one of the guys took with his camera phone on Saturday.





    Kinda a bad pic of me but Oh well....



    HK we had a blast and learned a lot. We are already setting up a private class for a handful of us to go over a few of the combination drills.

  11. Thanks for the update on your class and the pictures.

    I am in the process of setting up a private 2 day class here in Central Florida for a few of my friends, and then we are trying to decide about a 4-5 day at either Front Sight, or one of the other schools in February.

    Keep up the training.

    BTW, looks like you decided on some White Box .45
