Talon Defense runs a number of different “Gunfighter” courses through the year. There’s another one coming up fast (mid-December; 14 – 16, 0900 to 2200) and if I understand correctly there are still a handful of slots left. This particular class will be focused on weapon deployment in confined spaces. You’ll be shooting 500 rounds of handgun and 1,000 rounds of carbine over the course of 3 days, on the Gadsden PD range in Gadsden AL (not too terribly far from the Sock Capitol of the World).
