A few questions and a comment:
  1. Since it's an "Intermediate Pistol Course" how do you make sure no novices are in there?
  2. Is it 9am to 5pm each day?
  3. If you ended up with a full complement of 20 students how many instructors / assistant instructors will you have? By the way, the post here says maximum of 20 students whereas the website link (http://stores.greygrouptraining.com/...tol/Detail.bok) says 16.
  4. The class is over the Thanksgiving Day holidays!

Starts at 9:00am, but range will open for gear up at 8:30am. The class instruction usually stops at around 4:30pm so the students can pack up and leave the range by 5:00pm

16 is the max, but we can go upto 20 students. Like our last class, we had 21 students and Jason was able to handle safety and give attention to each individual students. Jason also have additional AI to bring out.

We understand it is over the holiday weekend, but we took a chance since it is the only range time we can arrange and thanksgiving being on Thursday, the weekend would be a great time for most of us to work off the meal we had on Thursday

  4. The class is over the Thanksgiving Day holidays!
(1.) We ask, but usually guys police themselves very well with this type of stuff. If a guy feels his qualifications might be questionable they usually email me and ask. Hint: prior training resumes are not always indicative of someone's true skill level. Vetting students is more of an art form than merely "Show Me your training resume".

(2.) Up to sixteen students Jason will handle on his own; if we go over that he is bringing a 2nd RB1 instructor to act as an A.I. Like most classes with instructors of this caliber that will require two strings of shooters. 8-1 or 10-1 ratio of student to instructor is very good in this industry. If you find yourself in a class with a ratio better than that you’re either in a private class or more likely that’s all the students the instructor/organization could get to sign-up.

(3.) Like Chen stated it’s 0830 to 1630 each day.

(4.) Yes, it’s a Holiday weekend. Thursday is actually Thanksgiving, and the class is being held Sat-Sun. What better way to work off that big Turkey dinner than an awesome training class?

Please let me know if you need anything else. I am always glad to help.

Thanks,

Paul

Thanks Paul and Chen for your direct responses. I'm probably going to give it a try and signup next week. I'm impressed with Jason and his fluid shooting and instruction abilities from what I've read, seen and heard.

For Southern California I only see the following pistol classes. Is that correct? When will you have Larry Vickers coming down for a 2-day pistol class?
  1. JASON FALLA 2-Day INTERMEDIATE PISTOL CLASS on NOVEMBER 27-28, 2010 in CHINO, CA
  2. KEN HACKATHORN 2-DAY ADVANCED HANDGUN CLASS on JANUARY 15-16, 2011 in CHINO, CA
I know Larry speaks very highly of Ken Hackathorn so I'll get in on that. I have already registered for Jason's late November class and really looking forward to it.

I'm interested in taking at least one Intermediate/Advanced Pistol class with the three hosts of Tactical Arms & Tactical Impact: Larry Vickers, Kyle Defoor and Jason Falla. The reasoning is not just due to those TV shows but their real world experiences plus years of instructing students. My personal preference leans towards a 2-day Advanced Pistol class in Southern California.

Quote:
Larry Vickers

20 year U.S. Army Special Operations veteran with 15 yrs. in America's most elite unit - Delta Force. Combat Veteran of numerous classified combat operations. Recipient of Bronze Star with Valor and 17 other service awards. Internationally renowned marksmanship instructor.

Kyle DeFoor

Eight years of service in the U.S. Navy, with Seal Team 8 and DevGru. Awarded the Bronze Star with Valor. Kyle is a skilled, experienced pistol and rifle instructor for special operations units world-wide. Kyle currently works for TigerSwan.

Jason Falla

Twelve years of service in the Australian Defense Force, Commando Regiment and Special Air Service Regiment. Awarded the Citation for Meritorious Service Afghanistan and the Citation for Gallantry Iraq. Jason was a Firearms and Tactics Instructor for U.S. Training Center.

The original post for the Hackathron pistol class in January says Advanced not Intermediate: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=334985

Who will teach the TigerSwan int/adv pistol class in July?

Ken's class is what is posted in the original thread. i was just going off by memory.

Correction, Ken's class in Jan will be an advanced pistol class.

Tigerswam should be by Kyle defoor and one other ex-Delta operator TS instructor. but don't hold me to it, it is up to TS to make the final decision. but all TS instructors are either Delta or Dev Group.

Any chance Kyle Defoor will be one of the TigerSwan instructors for that Intermediate/Advanced Pistol class next year?

Also, I'd love to see an Advanced Pistol class by Larry Vickers in Southern California.

Thus far, the weather for this weekend's Jason Falla class still looks good: mostly sunny, no chance of rain, less windy and the temperature picking up a little. The sun sets at 4:42pm right around quitting time.

Yeah, chances are slim Kyle will make this class for TigerSwan. Although he will still be working with TS when his schedule allows I kind of doubt it will work out for this class that way.

You are still going to get 1-2 long time Tier One Special Operations veterans as instructors. You can take that to the bank.

Someone started an AAR and a couple of us continued on that thread:
