    What's the most training you've received to date?

    How much training have you received since you started carrying a firearm?

    The most training I've received to date is all of the training I've had since I was 8yrs old. Not quite sure how I could have received less, but that's definitely the most.

    (Since I’ve started to CC a handgun)

    If asking about paid training from instructors? I’ve taken 3 handgun classes.

    If asking about training from people more experienced than me? I’d say hundreds of hours.

    ~50 hours formal training in the past two years. Goal is to do ~75 hours this year.

    That’s good stuff. Do you agree that formal training pays off in the long run? Was the 50hrs all handgun?

    Formal training would be attending a class.
    Informal training would be from more experienced people you may know personally.

    While I have more informal training than formal, I'd like to bump up the number of classes I take per year. Currently I've taken five classes per year, which equates to about 45-50 hours per year.

    I’m gonna get in at least 4 classes this year. Next year I plan to bump that up as I should have more time in 2019.

    It was all pistol.

    It is absolutely worth it.

    This year my goal is to take two or three force on force classes, and more advanced pistol classes. I also am strongly considering starting combatives again (krav and BJJ likely) and doing three to five hours per week of that.

    VATA and Advantage Group have the most courses during the year. NOLATAC has had a bunch of big names come through last year. Most notably, they had Bob Vogel come do a class. This year they have Bill Blowers, John McPhee, and Kyle Defoor coming down here.
