Default What classes do you take?

So I've taken a few classes. They were all tactical/gun fight type based. I understand the fundamentals transfer over. Reloads, shooting positions, weapon manipulation, etc. However I don't think I need to know how to shoot from under a car for 3gun.

So do you seek out specific competition oriented classes? Or just take the tactical type and apply it appropriately. I don't think I've actually seen a competition specific class so I'm leaning towards the latter, but wasn't sure. If you have, and have some recommendations(so cal area) id appreciate to hear about your experience. Thanks!

I'd recommend They teach out of Pala and have tactical and competition oriented classes.

There aren't really classes in the game of Highpower, but if you attend matches you'll find people willing to give you coaching. Then once you show interest aptitude you'll find opportunities to train with a team.

The fundamentals are pretty simple, a class could be maybe two days at best. The issue is applying the fundamentals and that takes coaching and good practice.

Bob Vogel, Frank Proctor, Mike Pannone, Mike Seeklander, Max Michel and Ben Stoeger teach competition-oriented classes in California regularly. I'd suggest checking their respective websites.
