Which class(es) did you take and I'm curious what you don't like about their training? Yes, it's specific but I've found that though they stick to their methods they find ways to work with you.

Which is fine of course but they are getting a lot of people on the right side with good training and in my opinion, good information. Better than not, right?

I have one of their lifetime memberships which premiered as one of their typical "limited-time" offers so I can take one of their four most popular classes whenever I want for the rest of my life. It was a pretty good deal (only about 100 bucks after splitting the deal with a friend) so I'm happy, but I must say after all the hype about the "spectacular news" I am slightly disappointed at the revelation that I will be forced to pay nearly 5000 dollars to enjoy any of the benefits. I simply don't have the money, but I have heard very good things about their training so I am thinking that I will try to buy a diamond level membership off of someone since they will have an abundance.

For the $250 or so that you can get a lifetime Diamond membership for, its a steal. That simple.

Some don't like the marketing tactics or training style but for every complaint you'll hear from dozens who have gone and can't wait to get back.

Definitely worth the $250, even if you don't go back. I spent more in ammo than for the "lifetime" membership.

I agree $250 for the membership is a great deal.

I won't buy the offer.

I already have the Lifetime Diamond + Alaska. Definitely worth what I paid for it.

Real "Spectacular" news would be if they actually improved their facilities, or released financial information which doesn't indicate that the company is on the verge of collapse.

I won't buy. I see it as a marketing scheme, same as always. I am a diamond lifetime member + Alaska, and the classes I've been to made it worth the money easily. I'll go back.

I don't own one, but I'm going to check it out. Las Vegas location can't be all bad.

yes, I've taken their shotgun course - because it was free from a friend and I wanted to support her.

not only was I complete blown away by the general amount of stupidity of some of the folks that took the class (people didn't know what a "fore end" was) but I was pretty annoyed with the fact that the instructors couldn't even get my name right even though they made me tape it to the back of my hat. seriously? I've been to classes with more members and never had an instructor show that kind of lack of respect.

to me it felt like they were just stamping out shooters... I had fun at the time, but reflecting on it - I wouldn't go back.

I wish I could participate in the "Spectacular News" but like most I can't fork out $4900 right now and I am still sitting on an extra Lifetime Diamond membership. I have taken their 4 Day Defensive Handgun course and had a great time.
