    OK, folks, this one is a work in progress. It will take a while to put together a really useful list, but we have to start somewhere, and this is where. Please don't get insulted if you don't see your school, or your favorite school or instructor listed here. Just PM me the appropriate links, I will get them posted as soon as I can. Since THR is a site directed primarily at the armed citizen, trainers or facilities who limit themselves to LE/military only are not likely to be included here.

    ETA: I really need the assistance of students/instructors/readers if this list is to become really useful. PLEASE if you know of schools or instructors I have not included here, PM me and let me know. If you find mistakes or out of date information, please let me know. This is YOUR list- it isn't mine. I'm just doing the typing. Thanks much! (090815)

    And if you come across bad or broken links, please let me know about those as well via PM. I'm taking this on primarily as a personal project, other staff are always wecome to help out if they wish, but there aren't many of us to go around, and all of us have lives outside the board. So if construction and maintenance here lags a little, cut me some slack, OK? 8^)

    Rather than make this an open discussion thread, I'm going to lock it from the beginning and ask that members PM me suggestions for addition here, WITH LINKS please. Links to reviews, AARs, discussion etc would be good as well. I'm going to try breaking this up into categories- fixed base schools, itinerant instructors, a state by state list, AARs/reviews/discussion, books and DVDs of interest, etc.

    And here's the necessary disclaimer: Inclusion of any instructor/school/facility/product/book/DVD/website/organization etc. does not imply endorsement by THR or any member or members of the THR staff. These lists are provided for information and educational purposes as a convenience to members and guests of THR only. Neither THR nor any member or members of the staff at THR has received any compensation of any sort from any listed instructor/school/facility/product/book/DVD/website/organization etc. in return for being included here. It is our intent to provide as complete and accurate a listing as possible without intentionally excluding any legitimate instructor/school/facility/product/book/DVD/website/organization etc. Suggestions for any additional instructor/school/facility/product/book/DVD/website/organization are welcome. Please PM me.

    And while we're on the legal bandwagon: Copyright stuff. This list is the property of TheHighRoad.org. It has been compiled from various web sources. It may be freely reproduced for any nonprofit educational or informational purpose without written permission so long as credit is given to TheHighRoad.org.


    Edit 28Je09- due to recent software changes to the board, my edit dates do not currently appear at the bottom of each "post" here as they have before. As a result, starting today I am adding the 'date added' to the end of each entry that's added or changed here to reflect each entry's currency. It'll appear in parens in YYMMDD format (090628).

    ETA, 090822 - The list is growing enough that I see a need to change its format slightly. As things evolve further, I'll be arranging each state's list of schools/instructors by town. That should make it easier for people to locate schools/instructors near them, which is the point of this exercise in the first place. Texas gets first dibs on the new format, just because that's where I was working when I decided the change might be helpful. It'll take time to revise the whole list to the new format- patience, please. The new format is Town Name, State - Name of Owner if available, Name of School - Link (Date added or modified)

    First Things First: Safety First. Safety Last. Safety Always. Here you have it, straight from the horse's mouth so to speak:

    We hoped by this time that the standard rules of safe gunhandling would have become universal throughout the world. They have been arrived at by careful consideration over the years, and they do not need modification or addition. We trust that all the family have them by heart in all languages, but for those who came in late here they are again:

    1) All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.

    2) Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)

    3) Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.

    4) Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.

    Those will do. We need all four and we do not need five. It should not be necessary to belabor this issue, but life is not perfect.

    - from Jeff Cooper's Commentaries, Vol. 11, No. 4; April 2003 ( http://harris.dvc.org.uk/jeff/jeff11_4.html )


    Some shooters don't quite feel ready to take on a class from a nationally known instructor or school right out of the gate. True, it is sometimes easier to get your feet wet a little bit at the time when you first start out. And some shooters are unsure if they really are ready to spend the money it takes to attend a class from one of the 'name' schools. So for those looking to get started building a learning curve from the beginning, here are some suggestions.

    Hunter Education/Hunter Safety Course Available in every state I know of, and often free or for minimal fees, these classes can provide a foundation for training for any shooter. Safety IS always first where firearms are concerned. For contacts in your state, see http://www.nrahq.org/hunting/statefishgame.asp .

    NRA Classes The NRA certifies a great many instructors, who are teaching classes across the county in one of the largest efforts going to teach safe and sound gunhandling and shooting. To see if there is an NRA class available near you, go to http://www.nrahq.org/education/training/basictraining.asp . There's a locator tool on that page which will help you find classes available near you.

    Appleseed Project The Revolutionary War Veterans Association wants to make sure America remains a nation of riflemen. For some time now they have been conducting Appleseed training sessions across the country, teaching rifle marksmanship to a host of shooters. For the training schedule, go to http://www.appleseedinfo.org/search-states.html, and for the home page, see http://www.appleseedinfo.org/ .

    “Your weapon is your mind. Your gun is your tool. A lethal confrontation with firearms is about strategy and tactics, not just shooting.” -- Louis Awerbuck (from an interview with Bill Boatman, http://www.louisawerbuckgunningthroughgunsite.blogspot.com/ )

    “Get the best training you can afford. But train with the understanding that firearms practice is about 75% physical and 25% mental. However, a gun fight is about 25% physical and 75% mental.” -- Clint Smith (quoted at http://www.safeism.com/pdfs/MWthoughts.pdf )
