This was shared elsewhere; I thought it was interesting. It's an article about learning defensive skills with a firearm.

If you pore through one of the country's many glossy gun mags -- Guns and Ammo, American Gunner, Gun Digest, Gun World -- you will find instructors willing to teach you how to hit a target, and courses that purport to integrate that skill into self-defense techniques. More serious are the handful of genuine firearms academies in America: Defense Training International in Laport, Colorado; the Gunsite Training Center in Paulden, Arizona; the Smith & Wesson Academy in Springfield, Massachusetts; Thunder Ranch in Mountain Home, Texas; and Yavapai Firearms Academy in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
And then there is the Lethal Force Institute.
Situated an hour north of Boston, in Dunbarton, New Hampshire, the Lethal Force Institute is widely considered to be the most intense education of its kind in the country, if not the world. For $600, a licensed gun owner with a clean criminal record can take the starter course, LFI-I, an intensive four-day, 40-hour seminar that reveals not only how to shoot and, possibly, kill an assailant -- but also how to stay out of jail when that happens, and how to handle the emotional aftermath of having pulled the trigger. It's an all-around education -- a finishing school in the truest sense of the words.
 
Thanks for sharing jks9199!

Bumping this up in light of the Gun-carry conversations going on in the General Self-Defense area.

Good information and very informational. The more gun owners educate themselves, the less they will look at that weapon as a novelty or toy. Once everyone knows that you are a responsible gun owner, it will be one less conversation piece. Thanks.
