I would like to apologize for the late review; meant to do it but time got the best of me and it slipped to the back of my mind.

Also I would like to apologize as this is a pretty old thread and I didn't want to create new thread for a class I took awhile ago and thought it would be more relevant to post in the original ad/thread.

MODS: Please adjust/delete as you see fit.

Now on to the review!

The Level 2 class was great, it pretty much picked up from the Level 1 class. At this point I cannot remember all the things we were taught but the Level 2 class started with a short (maybe 1-2 hours) recap and then moved on to the more "advanced" drills such as transitions from standing to kneeling and then to prone/urban prone, threat identification/engagement, engaging threats while moving back/retreating and engaging threats from left/right side. Also shooting from behind cover and shooting from low cover.

Each section/course of training had well explained instructions and plenty of examples on how to properly perform them. James and his partner (I apologize, I forgot his name) were great at identifying any issues we had and gave us the proper instructions/corrections as needed.

All of the individual sections ended in a "course" where we started in the adjacent range near the back stop. We would proceed to do some sort of exercise (in this case push ups) and then run to the next range (where the actual course was set up); attach our weapon and make ready to assess/engage threats as we saw identified them. During the whole time, the instructor would follow closely behind making sure it was safe and the course was run one at a time while not allowing the other students to see the course being run.

One critic though was a couple of the students (including myself) had issues with transitioning from side to side (behind cover) with the weapon slung. We came to the conclusion maybe we could have had some training on that or maybe have it taught in the Level 1 course.

Over all I think it was a great learning experience and something that complemented the Level 1 class well. I would/do plan on taking the class again when funds become available and would actually be interested in the "Active Shooter" class that he offers, just haven't had the time/funds set aside for it.

I don't know, but I would take it again for some more experience.

I felt like the class covered a nice range of topics for someone who has a little bit of experience and knows which end of the rifle is which. My opinion of James' teaching style is that he shows and tells you what he wants you to do in a basic sense, then gives you an "objective." You then have to interpret what he just showed you and he will be there to correct or answer any questions. This method was enjoyable for me as I've taken other classes where instructors often have you repeat the motions to learn muscle memory.

James' way of trial by fire (adding adrenaline/time/speed to the mix) made me think about the techniques and apply them to get the job done. For someone who has maybe only taken a basic rifle course and doesn't have much trigger time, this may not be as conductive to learning. Of course, the classes I've taken with James have been small and either he or another instructor was there to help out if you had any problems. I'm sure he, as any other instructor should, would adjust the class slightly depending on the competence level of the attendees.
