    Where are some excellent defensive handgun training classes in and around Washington and Oregon. The only one I’ve heard of is Seattle Firearms Academy in Onalaska Washington. I also need help with shooting low and left due to recoil anticipation.

    +1 on Cerberus. Jeannie and I took a class there earlier this year. Can't say enough good things about it. Steve will get you headed in the right direction.

    I mean I’m familiar with weapons just want to be much more proficient with them. What I really need is much more time spent practicing and becoming familiar with mine so they are an extension of my hand and a useful tool.

    First, have you delineated what level of self defense training are you seeking?

    Second, what are you going to do with this new training skill level, actively and purposely go seeking situations where you need the skill level of a military ops member or for just run of the mill situations, once in a lifetime incident where you inadvertantly get caught up in a situation?

    For example NRA has their new defensive pistol course or their In/Outside the Home Personal Protection courses which presents the skills/knowledge/attitudes to draw and shoot from your holster, low lite encounters plus other subject matter all encompassing live-fire exercises.

    Finally, contemplate ramifications of a deadly force incident and how prosecutors will present your advanced commercial defensive training.

    Sounds like he would want the RUN THE GUN CLASS .
    If he is a conciled carry in OREGON .
    He has already been to a NRA class.
    Probably not the one above .I guess it's new

    Interestingly, the OP didn’t state he has a carry permit/license from either WA/OR just a comment about familiarity with ‘weapons’?

    NRA’s PP classes have been around for quite a few years.

    I highly recommend taking some classes with Steve, he is a good guy and has a one rifle/pistol class Friday & a two day pistol course this weekend. I'll be taking the pistol course this time around and am looking forward to it.

    Red Frog Team has a pipeline called "Active Threat" that you can check out.
