I’m looking to take real practical training for CCW in Florida. I already have my permit and have satisfied the relatively basic requirements through my other NRA classes (SRO, Handgun, etc)

That said, I’m looking for real training that will improve my ability to respond if I’m ever forced to use it.

Can anyone recommend a good class or trainer?

I have taken multiple classes with him to include the Concealed Carry Deployment class.

Speak with Bob at Signal-O.com He runs a great class which is dedicated to carbine and or pistol, not necessarily CCW oriented. I am sure the skills you learn from him can be easily incorporated into your daily CCW routine. IMHO, keeping it concealed is a fraction of what you need to know. How to USE the weapon once needed is far more important.

Depending on what you’re specifically after, there are some excellent training options throughout the state.

I run classes under Signal-0 up in Aucilla, just east of Tallahassee.

I start with the fundamentals and skills assessment and then rapidly progress through static drills and moving drills. We cover just about everything pertaining to combat gun fighting in the public domain.

Woven throughout the course is an emphasis on tactical perception and the OODA loop. Fighting from cover, one and two man tactics, room/area clearing techniques, open fields, etc., you never know when or where you might have to fight.

We have a great time, grill out after class, and my class costs are absurdly low. Usually each class if half full of repeats.

You can get more info at Signal-0.com

Training isn’t a one and done deal, I highly recommend you take classes from a variety of providers as every class and every instructor offers something different.

Jared Reston, Don Edwards, or any of the instructors that Neal from Gun Gallery hosts.  All good options.  I’d probably start with a Jared Reston CCW class and go from there.  He’s a former police officer that’s been in some gunfights and lived to be able to teach people like you and I how to survive them.
