I'm posting this around because I heard from Bennie the other day that there's a possibility this class may be cancelled due to not enough sign ups. This is the third class I've tried to take this year and all the others had been cancelled due to budget cuts and not enough sign ups. Frankly, I'm sick of not being able to get out and train!
Please let me know if you sign up so I can keep count.

Anybody in the area that makes a living carrying a gun NEEDS
to take this class ! I have taken three of Bennie's classes in the past and hosted him here in Ohio this past September. He has the ability to teach you simple movements that are easy to master and retain versus some other techniques out there that look like the person doing the drill is having a seizure. I did an AAR on this board for any of you that are interested (different class but the same techniques ) Don't think about it, sign up for it and do it !
I highly suggest people sign-up for this class. Bennie is one of the finest instructors in the world, no question about it. That's why so many elite military organizations sign him up for classes.
Grey Group has a class planned for 2010 in Fayetteville, NC, but we have not worked out all the details yet.
We only need a few more guys, it's looking good for the class ... if you're on the fence about it the time is now! Don't miss an opportunity like this..
