Typically, the classes I teach occur when a group of concerned, prepared friends get together after one or more of them have read some of the blog, and decide maybe they could benefit from some professional training. That's great. That's what I'm here for.
Nevertheless, from email conversations with numerous people, it has come to my attention that lots of guys who recognize the need for this training don't have a network established yet, or cannot convince their buddies to pony up enough to cover my expenses (trust me boys and girls, I'm NOT making money on this. I wish I could). At a recent class, the landowner of the training area offered the possible use of his land for some future open enrollment classes, if I would help him design and develop range facilities (he's imagining a professional range facility where he can bring in outside trainers from various backgrounds).
If I were to offer an open enrollment class or classes, say in late summer, early fall (or even winter, if you can hack a northern Rockies winter...), would anyone have any interest in this? We would need a minimum of 10-15 people. Costs would be around 200 a day per person, for a three-day class, to cover my fuel for driving to the area, and to defray range fees for the landowner.
If you are interested, please email me through the blog.
