Train With RevolverGuy!

Attention RevolverGuys! Mike will be teaching a one-day, Defensive Revolver class in Northern California, at the end of October, under the LMS Defense banner.

  1. Seems like fine way to spend a day. Alas, I haven’t lived in California for many years. Looking forward to an after action report.

  2. Very cool that you’re doing this, Mike. I hope you fill the class! That’s a very reasonable price for the quality of the training day I know you will provide. Revolver guys that live close: go spend a good day with Mike!

  3. Always glad to see more revolver training happening, and especially closer to my part of the country. Have you guys considered becoming involved in the “Pat Rogers Memorial Revolver Round-Up” annual event @ Gunsite?

  4. That looks like a great class, unfortunately it’s 2,840 miles away from me here in Lower Slower Delaware. And, on Friday the 13th in October I’m signed up for Greg Ellifritz’s Snubby Revolver for Concealed Carry somewhere down in North Carolina, but it’s only 435 miles from me.

    I too look forward to reading the AAR and, hopefully, a subsequent class somewhere closer to Lower Slower Delaware. Good luck with it.

  5. I’d love to attend, especially being relatively close in Vegas, but I’m all booked up for the year! I’ll keep an eye out for you at Revolver Roundup, and my ear to the ground for when/if you do another one of these next year.

    1. I’d like that too, Bart. Maybe someday we can make it happen. You’ve got some of the best revolver instructors on God’s green Earth operating in your area already, though—-Wayne Dobbs and Darryl Bolke, of Hardwired Tactical Shooting

  6. Hey Mike, I appreciate the opportunity to attend the class as a reader over the past few years. I’m driving up from Arizona and am looking forward to it.

    Is there a definitive location for the class? I’m looking to book a hotel soon

  7. Looks like I get to meet some of you at the Revolver Roundup in November! Looking forward to it. I was at Gunsite last year for the first time for their 260 shotgun (which was excellent). While I’ve done some pistol and rifle training, I’ve never had revolver instruction. If you have any pearls of wisdom to drop to get the most of out of this event I’d love to hear it.

  8. Your article spurred me to seek Revolver training classes in my local area (South Central Texas) and I came across your piece detailing other training opportunities – got all excited until I realized that piece was from 2018…. :-(.

    1. Sorry for the head fake, Paul. The good news is most of those trainers are all still in the game. Check out their current calendars. Grant isn’t teaching classes right now, that I’m aware of, but the rest are still active. Hardwired Tactical shut down their website, but are still on social media with class announcements.
