I took Combat Focus Shooting in Atlanta, IL, and was impressed with every aspect of the class. The instructor for the class was Rob Pincus. There are too many positive aspects of the class to list in a review. What stood out more than anything else was the instructor's enthusiasm, knowledge, and constant feedback tailored to each individual student. Although I carried a pistol every day while serving in the military, Mr. PIncus quickly identified my few strengths and many weaknesses and constantly provided instruction to improve my skills. I would highly recommend the class to anyone who owns a pistol for defensive purposes whether they've been shooting for 30 years or three months.

I took the two day course with Rob Pincus and instructors Ken and Maggie from Firearms Training in Las Vegas. I have not taken a class for about 15 years. I picked up my CCW about 4 years ago, watched Robs videos and finally jumped in a took the class. The first day I realized that this training was amazing to say the least. I was building a foundation that I could use to deal with a threat in a real way with confidence. I had thought I was prepared but I was wrong. I found myself gaining skills and confidence with every string we fired and every drill we went through. The idea to shoot faster, be smoother and deal with a threat with new skills is what you are going to get. The content of this class, this philosophy are not random ideas written on a bar napkin, this is science, experience given by instructors who are preparing you for the fight of your life, or maybe just being prepared is the mindset that never has to fight. I plan on continuing my training using this method, to me there is nothing better! Thanks Rob for the start and for Ken and Maggie who are just great folks to train with.

My wife Liz and I attended this two day course at Shooters in Cape May , New Jersey; we drove down and back from Bucks County Pennsylvania each day. I think everyone that carries a firearm for personal protection needs to take this course. The essentials of what you will learn in this course may just save your life or the life of a loved one .

Will you be pushed to your limits? Will you be yelled at? Will you at times feel embarrassed? Will you complete the course knowing just what you need to practice to improve and to continue to improve your skill set?....Yes to all of those.

So, leave your feelings at home and don't be afraid to go to one of these courses, and if you have to put a Q-Tip in your pocket and during a break take it out and look at it to remember...Quit Taking It Personally.

Thanks Rob for a great learning experience.

Just finished the 2 day course. I was not one of the better shooters in the class, but it helped me a lot. Understanding the reasons for the methods taught was very helpful; it was not just "this is the best way." We learned, practiced, and received evaluation of skills that are very practical and necessary for anyone who carries a gun for self defensive. Each of us left understanding areas requiring more work and how to go about it.

My wife and I took the 2 day CFS course and we learned a lot. Rob is a great instructor, he made sure all questions were answered in detail and explained the reason(s) for each evolution of the course. He made sure we understood everything we did and why it is done that way. We left better shooters with new skill sets and a better way to train to keep our combat focus. If you carry a pistol, whether it's for personal protection or professional you should take this course.

As a firearms instructor I am constantly seeking out new training methods. Although I have been following Rob for awhile, I was unable to attend one of his courses due to work schedules. After conversing with Rob via Facebook we decided it was time for a course here in Southern IL! I had read every edition of the C.F.S. books, watched the dvd, but was unprepared for the experience of the real thing! C.F.S. is the epitome of "real world" defensive shooting instruction! Can't recommend this training enough and can't wait to train with Rob again!!!

I took the 2 day CFS course:
Thank you Rob for developing such a refined course. I first studied your Counter Ambush Program, followed by the CFS dvd set and book, and I’m glad I did as it really helped this new shooter prepare for this course. Our instructor was Alessandro Padovani, who was more passionate about CFS training than we could have hoped for. All aspects were explained in detail. All questions were answered in detail. Alessandro made sure we understood what we were doing and why we were doing it. I left as a much improved shooter in just 2 days, but even more important than the learned skill set, I walked away armed with the knowledge of how (and why) I can continue to train efficiently, effectively and consistently.
Also really looking forward to APH course!!
Thanks again,

Took the modified one day course. The difference in my skill level between the beginning and the end of the class were beyond belief. I wasn't sure if I felt confident enough to CC as a newer gun owner but I'm ready as of now. Also really appreciated no double standard in expectations because I'm a woman, in fact an "older" woman. Looking forward to taking the full 2 day course soon. Many thanks to Rob and his instructors for such a great experience!

Rob & his team of instructors are thorough & consummate professionals. Their attention to detail and safety enhanced my experience & helped me round out the ‘ruts’ in my technique. I can easily say the value of Rob’s training will pay significant dividends for me and my Combat Focus.
