I know people who went to his classes as well, even worked for him as instructors. It's been awhile, but their criticisms were not of his training.

Also, I don't understand, "Like pointing Airsofts at each other?" As long as wearing proper eye and face protection, so what? They make excellent gunfight training tools. Especially getting stung by one (or more!) of those little plastic BBs in training! Let's you know when you made a mistake right away.

I suggest Goggleing him. He was convicted of workers compensation fraud in 2001 I believe.
Ahh... I found it. Yep, he was on a workers comp leave from the PD and was doing some firearms training/classes and the paychecks went to his wife. (They plead guilty and payed all the income back.)
Gabe Suarez has written about this and his side of the story is out there as well. Worth googling 'til you find it. Short version as I remember it: He asked for permission to teach when he was off for a back injury, received it, then was charged with WC fraud. Had a choice of fighting it in court and going bankrupt paying for his lawyer, or pleading down to misdemeanor charges, paying restitution, and being flat broke as well as losing his job as a cop. He went for option 2.

He has many strong supporters and many strong detractors, seemingly based on his business practices. He seems to be very attentive to making sure he gets every $$ he believe is his. His tactical advice seems to be worth considering.
