I have been a Law Enforcement firearms instructor for over 20 years and I have had the opportunity to attend various schools presented by private companies and L.E. agencies. I recently was able to attend a 2- day POST certified 1911/2011 course presented by Nick Suslow of SABER TACTICS. I can honestly say that this was one of the best classes that I have attended. Suslow’s experience as Law Enforcement Officer for a major Bay Area agency showed in his ability to present the material not only in the classroom but also at the range. Suslow’s instructional style was humble and down to earth and kept an “Officer Safety” concept throughout the training. Every drill was thoroughly explained and was demonstrated. At no time was the class rushed or any time wasted. Although it was a large class, Suslow took time to answer any question that was brought up. At the conclusion of the course, I walked away having learned new techniques and a greater appreciation for the 2011 weapon platform.
