Have any of you gotten training from the Firearms Academy of Seattle or Insights Training?

I'm considering trying one of them out and would like to hear your experiences or recommendations.

thanks

I've been familiar with FAS for 10 years now, and I would highly recommend them.

I like insights. I've taken shotgun,rifle,general handgun,and advanced handgun.

They're both reputable. Insights costs a little more but you end up spending an equal amount or more at FAS after paying for gas and lodging if you're there for a weekend.

Insights is good to go, especially if you're in the Seattle/Bellevue area so there isn't as much travel time as FAS. I've taken their Rifle, Handgun, Unarmed, and Folding Knife classes, and all of them were intense and educational.

Well, if you take FAS 7 in April I'll be there.

Don't mean to Hijack but can you take your camper there. and stay or is there a place near by? I havent got my info back from them yet.

You can camp out at FAS. I've done it a couple times. They have a large area for RV's and tents. If you use an RV you will need to bring your own power and water because it's dry camping and no facilities.
It will save you some time and money for not having to pay for a motel room and food etc, plus the travel time from FAS to where ever you would be staying at. It's kind of a hassle so camping out simplifies it a little bit.

Thanks all,

I signed up for the FAS handgun intro in June. Too bad I can't take it sooner, but oh well.

ETA: I got bumped up to the one this weekend! W00t! I'm such a post whore.

I know how you feel. Just get all the training you can. OH and of course it is addicting.

Ok, then has anyone taken Insight's unarmed self defense class?

Why in the hell would anyone want to go into a fight without a weapon?
