FoF requires a lot of preparatory work for you, Rick and of course, I volunteer to help, as well as take the FoF course, to make sure there are enough participants in either course. 🤠

WOW....just saw that poll thingy at the top..... thank whoever did that....it is great....
That would be me as one of your friendly and hopefully helpful Moderators/Admin (see post #10). Glad you liked it since by your Thread Title, that's what I thought you were after! 🤠

For some of us like me, who are not as educated on these matters, what are the main differences between TFP and FOF? And why would one want to take TFP first, before FOF? I dunno... it just seemed to me that FOF was better as (in my belief) you focused scenarios where you'd have to perfect your SA, as well as the physical technuiques (drawing, firing, etc.). If TFP is a necessary "pre-requisite," then yeah I'd want to take that.
Each course focuses on different skill sets. Although Force-on-Force (FoF) isn't exclusive to Threat Focused Pistol (TFP), if one hasn't developed those TFP skills, then one wouldn't really be able to utilize them very well during a FoF course, where one has to think tactically on their feet to try and stay alive during the FoF scenarios. 🤠

They aren't a pre-requisite for Fof, but those skills will be of great benefit when you're fighting with a handgun against a live opponent.
Thanks brownie. I guess he didn't fully understand my point in the second sentence of post #24. :unsure:

No, I understood your "second sentence." What I was missing was specific details/examples of what those skills are. Brownie gave me a few of them above. Therefore, it's TFP for me until I am ready for FOF.
Well actually the details on specific skills of TFP were not relevant to explaining that TFP should come BEFORE FoF in any course that relies on TFS skills, which are the courses brownie and/or EBL teach.

Let me coordinate with brownie and EBL about EBL's thread/class/poll first and then we'll go from there. . .let's not get the cart before the horse. 🤠
