I just signed up for a few classes (Pistol/Carbine) at West Coast Armory over in Bellevue WA and was perusing the offerings from Insights.

Insights is kinda spendy but that's fine if they deliver. Wondering if anyone has been through their defensive handgun classes and/or carbine classes. Have you heard anything about them?

Insights

West Coast Armory

I really dig West Coast Armory, so I figure if Insights is affiliated they've got to be pretty good. Still, would love some feedback.

thanks for the links

imo it is best to select training services that do not ask for "photo ID", do not keep phone numbers, emails or details about membership, and is transparently (ideally micromanagedly-self) financed

Yeah I'd rather go to a place where you need a CPL and ID. Too each there own. Keeps out the riff raff and I'd rather not get shot in the peen.

this is precisely why, take a page from sun & the concubines:

one unwilling to weed out the riff raff in his neighbourhood militia playhouse

does not merit a gun because

what would such a person do with it? kill a dog to see what it feels like, then a bum because they're unarmed and maybe it feels more powerful than a dog?

I doubt any reputable training facility will not ask you for ID.

If my training servant asks me for ID I'd say "creationism" and laugh probably

wtf, a list of all members? this is why MXJ died last week instead of being a community organizer to send a whole army to some exotic location and out-macho the local gunslingers

Are you referring to me or the riff raff? I don't have any designs on killing anything unless they were trying to do me or someone else harm.

so you're referring to the riff raff, clearly

and saying being enlisted improves your chances of meeting your goal of being away from them

this is not the attitude you're training towards

Domo1 I'm in Tacoma.

Anyway. Just do what the instructors tell you. Take notes and practice. Don't take it too serious and have fun. You're going to smile a lot.

Oh no! The hot sexy singles have found me on ATS!

That's the plan, just want to make sure it's worth dropping $800 for a class plus 1,000 rounds of ammo. That's just the carbine class too.

Gonna take it pretty serious but I will of course listen and smile.

Some straight skinny on tactical training. If you don't practice it ... it's a waste of money. Better to buy an e-book for 10 bucks and read it.

I'm really happy to see this OP. Makes one believe you've got hard times in the rearview mirror and at a good measure of distance.


Brother, spend the money on ammunition you can train with. Shoot it deliberately.

To learn. To be proficient in firearms safety, handling, accuracy etc. To the point it is 2nd nature.

To what end?

Be able to fend off the riff raff who happens to have more beef on their legs?

if so, start at boot camp, don't register your tax name, see who riffs your raff

Once you finish, look into IDPA, IPSC or both.
