I just want to chime in and say I took the 4 hour course at NRA.  I had a lot of fun and plan on returning for another class in the future.  The instructors were very polite, professional, and knowledgeable.  I left feeling like I got much more than what I paid for.  Thanks!

I would like to take one of these classes but I'm not a teir 1 tactical operator, I'm more of a typical ARFCOMer. Low speed, high drag.

To anyone considering serious defensive training,

Most Green Ops Instructors have military/law enforcement or both backgrounds, some do not. Regardless, all of the instructors are polite, patient, professional and very competent shooters and firearm instructors. Some of the classes offered are designed to be high level skill courses for those that want or need that type of training. However, the Defensive Pistol I and Defensive Carbine I Courses are designed for anyone that would like to improve their knowledge of the justification of lethal force, decision making and combat marksmanship. We believe in setting the example. All drills are demonstrated by staff before students practice the skill set

We encourage our students to pursue excellence in their defensive training. After all it is life, theirs and their loved ones that they may have to protect. Bottom line with our training it is "a way" we present, not "the way".

Our classes have been quite a mix of skill levels from very new shooters to highly skilled. We tailor the training to the student and have each student safely perform at their skill level. We teach in a respectful manner, presenting techniques to promote proficiency, that challenge students to improve.

Come on out and take a course. You will have fun being challenged and learning. Our Culpeper offerings at the 4H help fund the youth shooting program.

Don't take my word for it. Search for reviews. There are several posted here on AR15.COM.

Having took one of their Carbine clinics (and a pistol one) I can tell you that you do not need to be a Tier 1 operator for these. You do not need a ton of gear either. I know I was using my pants pockets for my spare mags until another classmate loaned me a dual mag bladetech holder. So essentially I wore an Ares belt with a bladetech dual holster and that was the extent of my gear. Rifle had a sling and a red dot, nothing else.

It was a great time and I do highly recommend it.

The stuff in red highlights a few of the reasons people never go to training. Sure, a person should not sign-up for a shoot-house course as their first training course. However, as long as one knows how to safely handle a firearm, just about anything else is pretty much good to attend.

Great point mo4040 and as Casarez pointed out, you don't have to be a Tier-1 Operator for our courses.  Though this is for an AAR for our pistol course, here's a review from ARFCOMer:

Thanks for the comments and support.  We hope to see more ARFCOMers in the future!

I just did the 4 hour course at the NRA range on Sunday evening. I wrote an AAR that is posted at Pistol-Forum.com and I will post it over here at some point soon.

I HIGHLY recommend getting out to a Green Ops course - I am somewhat of a beginner in the world of formal training, but I got a TON out of the class. I look forward to more training with them in the future because they are great guys, the offerings are great, and the price is RIGHT for what you are getting.

-shooter (2nd relay, 2nd from the right, in the Brew-Thru shirt on Sunday night)

ETA: For folks worried that they aren't high speed enough for this class - JUST GO! They don't assume you are a Delta Operator, they assume you know the basics of an AR-15 and your sights. That is it.

Looking forward to seeing your AAR over here!
