    My last class was with Bill Hickman and he was great to deal with (we actually did a 2 person private class).

    its all the same material, and a drunken monkey can parrot it.
    so your selection should go to cost and facilities.
    i retook it last year and one of the instructors that i looked at did his classes outdoors, in a field behind his house. one offered lunch and taught out of his garage.
    i went with frc because the great facilities and actual classrooms and range on site.

    While the material is the same to get your CCW, not everyone teaches it the same and many add a little extra. I've been doing my last couple of renewals with different groups just to get the different perspectives.
    Well we don't rent pigs and I figure it's better to say it right out front because a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop.

    There are some classes that add to the shooting portion.

    The qual is ridiculously easy and no one should expect much of it.

    Jason DiMarco does 952-1999
    I am sure Gretna Gun does.
    I wouldn't doubt Phobos does as well.

    I am friend and proponent of those guys. Even if you don't go to Phobos for a CCW, they do offer other classes.
