    Not sure where Southern Oregon is for you but I've trained with a number of guys who made the trip from the Medford area to Oregon Firearms Academy in Brownsville. Yes, it's a bit of a drive but the instruction is top notch.

    Oregon Firearms Academy is a little closer and looks pretty cool. I may check them out. And I'm definitely interested in that match. I've never done a match before.
