Training in DFW - Critical Defense Group

Postby TVGuy » Mon Aug 18, 2014 10:56 am

I took Defensive Handgun 1 from Critical Defense Group near Greenville on Saturday. It was a great class with knowledgeable instructors and good facilities. I'm looking forward to taking DH 2 there soon. I'd recommend to anyone. They have many more classes including Tactical Carbine 1 & 2 and Tactical Shotgun 1 & 2 amongst others.

Also, if you take and pay for Defensive Handgun 1 you can take their CHL class at no charge. After taking Defensive Handgun 1 you can go back for the shooting portion to stay proficient for no charge if they have an open spot.

Not a bad drive from DFW, about an hour northeast. http://www.criticaldefensegroup.com

What were the instructors backgrounds, if you don't mind me asking? I really want to get some more training, but for personal reasons I'm wanting to get it from people with more military background than police.
