More classes to come

Tactical proficiency is a journey and can't be learned, and more importantly, ingrained in the subconscious all in one shot. It may take more than one class to get you to your individual goal. As I build a customer base, I'll be offering more advanced classes in the near future. Operator courses are the place to start regardless of you current proficiency level. Everything we teach is stair-stepped and builds upon itself.
