Fall Flash Sale on Self Defense — 15% Off!

Learn to fight back

Right now you can increase your safety and keep some money in your pocket. Through 10/10 get 15% off the November USD and the December DFK with promo code “Fall2017“.

Unarmed Self Defense helps you develop the soft skills to avoid being attacked — awareness, decisiveness, body language — and the physical skills to escape from an attack. The confidence you gain from the ability to solve these problems ripples through every part of your life. Unarmed Self Defense is November 4-5.

Defensive Folding Knife is the most powerful one-day self defense class InSights teaches. At the end of this class you will have the skill to use a deadly force tool to escape from an attack. A folding knife fits into an important niche: you can have one in many places you can’t have a gun, it is a better answer than a gun in some situations, and it is an essential accessory to your gun if you carry one. Defensive Folding Knife is December 16.

And there are still a few slots left in the Pepper Spray Seminar October 10!

Unarmed Self Defense, Defensive Folding Knife, and Pepper Spray are part of a layered self defense system and are foundational InSights classes. Sign up with promo code “Fall2017” by 10/10 to get 15% off USD and DFK! Cannot be combined with any other offer or discount.

New lower price for Handgun Safety

Our 4-hour Handgun Safety and Marksmanship class is now only $60. This fun and informative class covers safety, types of handguns, 50 rounds of live fire drills, plus an introduction to dry fire practice. If you don’t have your own handgun you can use one of ours — an additional $25 fee covers rental and ammo. Start your foundation of safe and proper handgun shooting. The next Handgun Safety and Marksmanship classes are October 27 and 30.

Check your calendar and sign up today. Save 15% on USD and DFK with promo code “Fall2017” by 10/10, and take advantage of the new lower price on HSM (no code required). All three are at West Coast Armory North in South Everett, just a few minutes north of Seattle. Pepper Spray is at West Coast Armory in Bellevue.

Concealed Carry Permit News

Nevada and Arizona now have reciprocity

That means that now the easiest way to carry in Nevada (as a Washington State resident) is to get the Arizona non-resident permit. And our Utah permit class can help you get that — read on!

Previously, to carry in Nevada you had to get a Nevada non-resident permit (which you have to apply for in Nevada) or get the Idaho Enhanced permit (98 rounds of live fire training, and legal training by an Idaho LEO or Idaho lawyer). The Arizona permit process is much more pleasant — here’s a link to the Arizona permit site.

And another benefit of getting the Arizona permit is that you can also carry in New Mexico. About the only other way to get New Mexico (as a Washington resident) is to get the Florida non-resident permit. And you’ll need a Florida non-resident permit to carry in Florida as a Washingtonian anyway.

Here’s a breakdown of which permits get you what:

  • WA resident permit (plus no-permit-required states) gets you 26 states
  • UT non-resident permit plus WA resident permit gets you 32 states
  • OR non-resident gets you OR (it’s the only way to get OR)
  • AZ non-resident gets you NV and NM (easiest way to get NV, cheapest way to get NM)
  • FL non-resident gets you FL and NM (only way to get FL)
  • NH non-resident gets you NH and PA (easiest way to get PA, only way to get NH)
  • ME non-resident gets you ME (only way to get ME)

Arizona does have a training requirement, but it is satisfied by a photocopy of your UT permit (or of a permit from another state that requires training).

Around the country (sort of) in 7 permits — bah!

That’s what the map looks like as of today, at least for Washington State residents. Thirty-nine states out of fifty. And getting permits from those remaining states is either impossible, unlikely, or extremely expensive. For more information, check out usacarry.com.

At least we make it easy to get your Utah permit! When you take our all-inclusive Utah class you also receive a “proof of training” certificate that you can photocopy for your applications to other states that require training (OR, FL, AZ). Check out InSightsTraining.com for the latest class dates and times.

Make this the “Summer of Training”

Don’t stop at Utah class. Forget that ‘staycation’ — take an “InSightsTraining-cation”! Shooting classes with the incomparable Greg Hamilton, tactics classes with the indomitable John Holschen, Tactical First Aid with the inimitable Dr. Mike Shertz.

Stay safe and we’ll see you in class!
