Fighting Pistol Mobile September 15-16
From the class description: Fighting Pistol Mobile
The root word to "gunfight" isn't "gun". It's "FIGHT!"
This is the course everyone is talking about! It is the most comprehensive 2-day handgun class in the world. This course is literally a life saver. Our Fighting Pistol course prepares you to prevail in a real world violent confrontation and many students have gone on and done just that! This intensive course covers an incredible amount of material in just two days and we have been told that it covers more than any 5 day course at the "big schools".
Topics include the role and attributes of the handgun, legal aspects of deadly force, anatomical stopping power, mental conditioning for combat, movement and communication. Live fire drills include both one- and two-handed shooting, shooting on the move, use of cover and concealment, loading and reloading, using both eye level as well as retention techniques, at a variety of ranges and from a variety of body positions. This course is about 40% lecture on mindset, tactics, skill, and legal issues but don’t worry because you will still be shooting a minimum of 750 rounds while you are on the range!
We respectfully request that students have read "The Principles of Personal Defense" by Jeff Cooper before attending class. If possible we also recommend “Surgical Speed Shooting” by our friend Andy Stanford. These and many other items from our gear list are available at www.TacticalResponse Gear.com.

From the class description: Fighting Shotgun Mobile
Take the fighting shotgun course that teaches you how to win! The shotgun is often the close-quarters defensive tool of choice, due to its high hit probability and impressive terminal ballistics.

Topics include selection of weapon and ammunition, patterning and zeroing considerations, practical shooting and firing positions, reloading under duress, tactical engagement of single and multiple threats, weapon retention, switch to slug, and firing on the move. Live fire drills cover battlesight zero, slug select procedures, fire and maneuver from field positions, low light firing, basic and advanced buckshot drills, and hostage rescue…yes we said hostage rescue with your shotgun!

so its $500 total; for the class, and $50 total for the range use?
would 1000 rounds of Winchester white box be considered "quality ammo"?

WWB is fine for ammo. I've used WOLF / Brown Bear in my 9mm Glocks for classes without any issues. The main thing is that it's factory-loaded ammo (not reloaded) that works in your gun.
It's $500 to Tactical Response + $50 for the Range Use fee so $550 total.
We're working with the RCLRC board to reduce the fees for non-members. Heck, the yearly fee to belong to the range (after your 100 volunteer hours) is currently $60/year.

I need a minimum of 5 magazines, should i have a pouch for each mag?
Sorry if it sounds dumb, i just cant picture how the class is setup.

Nope - a single mag pouch or a double mag pouch would be fine. Keep the rest in a back pocket and after a reload, pop a spare mag from a pocket into the pouch so you're practicing reloading from your pouch every time.
If you're using a Glock, the cheapo Glock mag holders aren't bad at all for $10-$15
Also - there's a Fighting Pistol class in May - details posted in the Illinois Hometown forum as well.

With all the election gun/ammo craziness, I'd recommend grabbing ammo sooner rather than later for training classes or practicing on your own.
Gun-Deals.com is a good ammo deal / gun price-finder.
Looks like Cabellas has Winchester Super Target #8 Birdshot for 250 for $65... that's $0.26 per shell before sales tax...
