Well then, had I been actually reading
your post diligently, I'd have seen the TN vs. NJ.
Ooopsie. I just saw "Camden" and said "WTH?"
I was unaware there was a Camden TN. It still surprises me how many towns and cities here are named identical to others. It cornfuses us old dudes trying to keep track of it.
It now makes perfect sense (to me) that you'd take a tactical pistol course in TN and not
NJ. Sorry for the blunder.
By the way, Thunder Ranch is in Orygun, and is not the outfit in TX where it used to be many years ago. Clint Smith studied under Jeff Cooper, was the senior man there when it was moved here. He and his wife Heidi still operate it in Lakeview, OR.
The price always seems steep at first glance, but trust me on this, virtually everyone I know that has returned from TR has said the money was well spent. Most have gone back for more training. Clint did multiple tours as a Green Beret in RVN and has 'been there, done it', and is a highly capable trainer. He won't let you down, that I promise.
