They talk about it in this video starting at 2:00:
These two seem like genuinely nice people, so I was hesitant to write this post… but then I though what the hell… so here goes. First of all let me start off by saying I wish them the best of luck. Now my main question is their qualifications… (3:19) Cory says they are going to be offering Defensive Handgun, CCW, Tactical Rifle, Tactical AK, and a Ladies only class which Erika will instruct. Erika has been shooting for 1 year. Granted she could out shoot me any day of the week and probably roundhouse the Cheeto dust off my mouth for talking shit about her skillz. I think most people like to take training courses from people that are ex-military or ex-Law Enforcement… that said, Chris Costa from Costa Lupus (Yea I know it’s “Ludus” but I hate the way the name sounds) is an ex-coast guard and people listen to what he has to say like he’s Jesus. Maybe Cory is the up-and-coming young Costa that the shooting world wants/needs? I have to laugh at what Al said to me in email though… “He’s got tattoos and facial hair, isn’t that enough?” (regarding qualifications) haha
They say they are going to bring in other instructors too, like Buck Yeager. That part sounds like a decent idea… acting as the middle man can likely guarantee a pretty nice cut for them, with very little risk (unless a photographer gets shot, which i’m still surprised hasn’t happened yet).
Thoughts? Good or bad idea to capitalize on their YouTube fame? Would you take a course from them?
