    After 2 years of trying to find a training class that lines up with my schedule (heavy international business travel and 3 kids in lots of sports and activities tend to fill up nearly every weeknight and weekends), I finally found a class I can take.

    I just found out there is a MAG-20R class about 3 hours from me on June 25-26. *unfortunately I learned that Mas Ayoob isn't teaching it...very sad because I was excited to learn direct from him.

    Opinions? Do I pay the money for a "name brand school" but only get one of his understudy instructors or do I pay much lower price for a course from a lesser known trainer (like Steve Fisher at MDFI...still a decent name)?

    "State of Discombobulation"
    My opinion:

    Take the MAG course, Mas or no Mas.

    The knowlege and principles taught are well documented as laying a foundation in the legal aspects of a lethal encounter. From what I have seen all of his instructors are top notch.

    I say that as an LFI 1 Grad from a class that Mas taught, but also having met a few of his Instructors. To a person, I have found them all to be top notch.

    I'm with Biker, especially since the class is the range portion. Any legal/lecture carry over material may well be video of Mas (for documented consistency) anyways.

    I took the legal portion of LFI I from Mas, but the range portion (the equivalent of MAG 20) from some of his adjunct instructors. They were talented shooters, good instructors, and good dudes.

    I've taken classes from a half dozen or so LFI adjunct instructors and have found them universally good. They all had a great deal of experience, instructed professionally in some other capacity (in addition to LFI) and were nice folks. All were more than capable of presenting the Stressfire material in an effective way.

    The majority of the class is old video of Mas doing lecture. His affiliates are GOOD, and you won't regret it. Take the class.
