I just finished up with weekend training session on how to neutralize disarm, and not get shot or stabbed by an BG, I have managed to take at least on additional hands on course each year now for as long as I have been carrying.

Yes I know it is an added expense in todays world of over priced stuff but how much is your loved ones and your life worth to you? SHTF can happen any time you walk out the door, N I was curious as to how many of us make the effort to get an edge?

Titles are un-American.
Depends on what kind of training you're talking about, I suppose. Additional firearms tactical training, or general weapons, martial arts...??

I have had some martial arts and several shooting classes. Still would like much more as time allows.

I am a retired Marine Scout Sniper. I didn't answer the poll because my training goes well beyond what was given for answers. I have taken too many to count pistol classes, professional self-defense classes.

That puts you in a class with BATMAN so there is a category for you...

I have experience that also goes above that of the questions, but still believe in continued training to stay fresh and prepared.

Anyone who thinks they are Batman needs more training! (and a shrink too!)

I've had a lot and no where near enough. If I could afford it, I'd be in some kind of class several times a year but this year I'm only heading to one at Front Sight in October.

Thank God I'm alive!
Because of my work schedule (seven days a week, haven't had a day off since 10/22/2006), the only kind of training I'm able to do is at the range every once in a while. Being a security guard makes it all the more important for me to get a lot of practice, and I really should get more, but I think I'm going to need to get another job (one with some days off) before I can get the amount of practice I should be getting. Nevertheless, with the amount I have had, I consider myself a good shot.

I took a course at Front Sight. I loved it, and I know you will, too.

I'm in the same boat as you; I'd take more, but I just can't afford it.
 
Think I've answered on another site but:

Practical concealed carry

Air Force rifle (M-16)
Air Force Pistol
Air Force Shotgun

Personal training from instructors at the range

I try to get to the ranges every few months at a minimum. Doesn't always happen but I try.

Not Batman by a long shot, able and capable, not as good a a sniper either.

That makes two of us. Being a retired Air Force Combat Arms instructor I've taken more classes and have more practical experience on weapons than the average person. Anything from a 38 S&W revolver to a MK-19 full auto grenade launcher. Repair and maintenance, instruction and providing tactical training to SP's and qualification training to all other AF personnel. As an AF instructor we had to maintain a higher proficiency on all weapons and courses of training that we provided. Anything less than an expert rating on was not acceptable. I still pop off a mag or two every day just to get my fix of burnt powder! ;)
