    Default Jason Falla Class versus locally offered weapons course

    Seems that Jason Fallas course has gained a high amount of attention and those whom have attended left very, very happy and its clear why, Redback One is a world renowned organization.

    So my question is, if Redback One hadn't endorsed a tactical weapons class, would some/all/most of you go on to take a locally scheduled class (MVSR, AkTactical)? I was super bummed to have missed the class, work responsibilities took precedence. I've taken into shooting much more thi year and looking to refine and learn more.

    Has anyone taken a locally offered tactical defensive course?
    What were your thoughts?
    Dislikes?

    Kyle is there a future class this summer?

    Feel free to PM me if you need.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    I am low speed, high drag. I am not a ninja. I do not kick down doors. No one trembles in fear when they hear my name. [They may in fact laugh.] My uniform is whatever vendor-branded polo shirt my boss gave me. So, FWIW...

    I have taken classes from Ron Avery (Handgun), Ted Smith and Don Mann (APD; Shotgun/Handgun), Massad Ayoob (classroom section of LFI 1), Louis Awerbuck (Shotgun/Handgun), Russell Tanji (Handgun), and Steve McDaniel/Alaska Tactical (Carbine/Handgun Lowlight).

    Steve McDaniel is a world class instructor. He is or was an instructor at Gunsite. He has great staff. If I could afford the time, ammo and classes I would be at the range every month for a new or refresher class. I really want to take the Team Tactics class in August. Unfortunately the caribou are calling that weekend, and Rudolph takes priority.

    I wish he had some moving targets, 'walking into the unknown' scenarios, and force on force airsoft or Simunitions classes. He may in higher level classes, and I have just not seen them. Yet.

    We are lucky to have him local so most of us do not need to pay for a $800 airplane ticket, $200 in excess baggage fees, and $1000 for a week car rental and hotel room. Plus burn vacation time, piss off your spouse, and by-the-way hope your drop-shipped ammo arrives on time to your training class otherwise you'll look really silly pointing your finger yelling Bang! Bang!. But my opinion is worth what you paid for it.

    Join the military and go to war its the best training. One shot in a dark alley will teach more than all he classes in the world.Training often give a man false sense of his limits.Many a young Marine just out of boot camp has found this out the hard way when a 5'4" 145 he take on the Squid at 6"4" 250
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    They may try to get another basic pistol this year if everything works out...

    I think you're right. We are lucky to have someone local like him. I haven't attended any of his training sessions but have heard a bunch of good things about him. I collaborated with Jason last year and was lucky enough to get him coming up here because of the 'waiting list for the waiting list' that I was told existed for AK Tactical courses. I don't know if that is the case, but given the opportunity of RB1 vs. local, I'd take RB1 every day just because of what I've read on the positive side of Jason's company and the real world experience/background that he offers. That said, I'd take an Alaska Tactical course every day over no training! I say try 'em both!!
