AAR from Dave Z. at mdshooters.com (Low Light Clinic)

As you would expect, the low light pistol clinic is an advanced course. I will preface this entire AAR with some honesty: I was on the jagged edge of having enough training, and as a result, I was probably the weakest shooter there. This was because I had not practiced one-handed shooting enough, and one-handed shooting is a serious requirement for this course. Being weak on that means trying to have to make that happen while you're simultaneously trying to make it happen with a light. This isn't to say I couldn't basically hit what I was aiming at, but it manifested in a lot of "just-outside-the-box" misses.

AAR from Tom L. at Spotterup.com (Concealed Carry Close Quarters Combatives)

When I first got started learning how to shoot I had a very military approach to everything I did. Eventually, I realized that though I was proficient at shooting my rifle, I needed to seek out training for my pistol work. Since then I’ve been through a dozen or so courses, and what I realized later was that I was not proficient back then. What I realized is these skills are all perishable, and that if I’m going to be honest, I must seek out training on a regular basis.

AAR from Salvatore D at Reflexhandgun.com (Defensive Pistol II Class)

I highly encourage training with good instructors at any opportunity you can manage. All good shooters, especially those who are instructors themselves, are life-long students of the craft that seek out knowledge from others at all opportunities. As a guy who is busy with family and work my ability to take training is more limited than I prefer, but I still try to take a couple of courses of some type each year.

Review from Javier F.

I just finished up a 4 hour defensive carbine class with these guys. This was a great class for beginners or even experienced shooters looking to get a refresher on the basics. The instructors were very knowledgeable and professional. I’m looking forward to taking more classes with them.

Review from John W.

 I attended the Defensive Carbine I course in July, 2015. I was very happy with the quality of instruction and the skills that were taught. The staff taught useful, practical skills and didn’t waste a moment of time. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend the course to anyone who wants to become more familiar with using their carbine safely and effectively.

AAR from Luke B. at Primary & Secondary

Green Ops Carbine 1 was a great class for anyone looking into taking some rifle training. As a civilian this class was exactly what I needed. To add to the great training Mike followed up the class with an e-mail that included a power point of all the classroom material, a list of all the drills we ran during the class as well as book recommendations and other useful resources.

AAR from Robert G at Civilian Gun Fighter

Nine months ago I had never heard of Green Ops.  I believe it was on pistol-forum.com where I first saw an announcement of one of their courses, and I also read at least one AAR of a class on that site as well as on Voodoo Man’s blog.  I recall viewing the Green Ops website as well, but it wasn’t until John Murphy of FPF Training told me, during his Vehicle Tactics class, that Green Ops is definitely legit that I really started considering training with them.

AAR from Mark Endy at Black Sheep Warrior

It just so happens that I was talking to my good friend Nate from Advantage Training Group about that a while ago and he sent me in the direction of a training company known as Green Ops. I didn’t know at the time, but Green Ops is located here in Northern Virginia, and if you have a chance to attend a solid course, you make the drive.

AAR from Mark Farage at MASF.co

Mike is a really good teacher, he takes time to work with each student, his demonstrations were spot on and he does a great job of teaching “methods” and reiterating that “methods” are just that… ”methods” on how to do something, not “the only way” to do something. I was really impressed with the fact that he spent time with each student on each drill, giving pointers here or there depending upon the need (skill based).

AAR from TCinVA at Pistol-Forum.com

The students who showed up ran the gamut. I've done a class or two in my time. LL has been through a class or two. VDM has been through a class or two, too. On the other end of the spectrum there were people who had absolutely no formal training whatsoever, with one person sort of in between due to military training.
