What is the course requirement now? DG in 4DHG or SB within the past 2 years still?

DG 4DHG or SB AND "new" Tactical handgun Course. I believe the "2 year rule" still applies.

For Advanced Tactical Handgun you have to achieve Graduate or DG in 4 Day Handgun, or 2 Day Handgun Skill Builder, AND take Tactical Handgun.

Interestingly, if you change the "v2" to "v3", you get a flow chart showing what the prerequisites are to obtain an FS hotel room. To save everyone time, it basically says... lots of TBD future membership upgrades.

That's not updated.

That says you can DG 4 Day HG and go directly to Advanced Tactical Handgun. You can't. You have to DG or G a 4 Day HG or HG Skill Builder AND take Tactical Handgun. I confirmed that this morning.

The chart is correct. It states at the bottom that arrows on top of boxes are prerequisites to take the class. The prerequisite for Advanced Tact HG is completing Tact HG (which needs a G or DG in 4DHG/2DSB to get into) and DG’n 4DHG/2DSB.

I must have failed flowchart reading comprehensionthen as it appears to me that with a DG in 4 Day handgun one could bypass Tactical Handgun and go directly to Advanced Tactical Handgun. There’s that green line that goes from DG, around Tactical Handgun and directly to Advanced. Confusing.

Oops, you're right! Not all of their links have been updated. The V2 is correct, although not super easy to understand.
