In the interest of keeping our course announcements in one place as we've done on other forums, we will now post all upcoming open enrollment course information in this thread. Private, corporate, and LEO/MIL courses will not be posted here. Are you interested in setting up a private group or individual course? PM me here, call me (520-831-3683), or email me (Glen@IndependenceTraining.com) for more information.

You can also find lots of course AARs and course reviews here on SR, as well as over on AZS, AR15.com, and several other local and national firearms and training forums.

We also have 2 blogs: Journal of a Sheepdog, which covers training and mindset concepts; and Equipment Reviews, which is just what it says - our reviews of various guns and gear. You should also cruise over and check out our YouTube channel (lots of great videos!) which can be found at http://www.youtube.c...endencetraining.

We are the hosts of an internet radio show with the Vets on Media network called 'The Arms Room.' This is a weekly show which airs live every Monday from 10a-11p, and can be viewed/listened to anytime afterwards on PodBean, iTunes, or YouTube: http://www.TheArmsRoomShow.com/

Is the 9/22 carbine an open enrollment?

Although I'm not sure I will be able to stock up on enough ammo by then.

Cool.

Returning student discounts are available for a student who is repeating the same course within any time frame, and that discount is 50%. Discounts do not apply to new courses being taken - but if you'd like, I'll charge you double and then give you 50% off!

All of our Women's Self-Defense courses are scheduled based on demand, so if your wife and another are interested, we can certainly discuss putting a new course on the schedule - shoot me an email and we'll work on it.
