Summer send-off — save 10-33% on selected classes!

Save 15% when you combine General Defensive Rifle and Intermediate Defensive Rifle

General Defensive Rifle is an action-packed 3-day class that will give you a solid defensive rifle foundation. Safety, marksmanship, carry positions, firing positions, reloads, movement, tactics, low-light, recommended gear and much more! If you want to learn to run your rifle, this is the premiere rifle class to do it. GDR is September 21-23 at West Coast Armory in Bellevue.

Intermediate Defensive Rifle will take you the rest of the way! Increase your abilities at Close Quarters Marksmanship, and become a total “rifleman” with the ability to shoot to the potential of your rifle. IDR will challenge you!

For the CQM portion of the course, we will spend significant time in the ranges of 0–50 meters mastering speed and accuracy while using available cover and movement as is required in Urban Combat situations. The Rifleman portion of the course will be spent examining and testing the shooter’s abilities at 100–600 meters. This is a chance to find out what the maximum capabilities of you and your equipment are. Intermediate Defensive Rifle is October 19-21 at Ravensdale, WA.

GDR is the perfect prep for IDR — get 15% off when you do both. But if you can’t fit them both in, we’ll still give you 10% off either one!

Save 33% on Intensive Handgun Skills retakes

Outdoor IHS means shooting steel! This is a perfect course for the shooter who wants to maximize their use of the handgun for self-defense or the competitive shooter who could use fine-tuning of their technique. The principles of economy of motion and economy of time will be stressed throughout. Also included are long-range exercises, barricade drills, movement, shooting while moving, and more. After this course you will be shooting faster and with a greater degree of accuracy than ever before.

Retake IHS and save 33% — shoot the steel we couldn’t shoot indoors! If it’s your first time through, we’ll still give you 10% off. Intensive Handgun Skills is October 5-7 at Ravensdale, WA.

Outdoor shooting classes are back!

We had to move the August IDR, but now it is locked down for October. We also added an outdoor Intensive Handgun Skills class to October. Take your pick or do ’em both! Call the office to register (M-F, 12p-5p).

Intermediate Defensive Rifle is set for October!

Increase your abilities at Close Quarters Marksmanship, and become a total “rifleman” with the ability to shoot to the potential of your rifle. IDR will challenge you!

For the CQM portion of the course, we will spend significant time in the ranges of 0–50 meters mastering speed and accuracy while using available cover and movement as is required in Urban Combat situations. This portion will be fast moving and the constantly changing drills and environment will challenge the shooter’s mental and physical abilities.

The Rifleman portion of the course will be spent examining and testing the shooter’s abilities at 100–600 meters. This is a chance to find out what the maximum capabilities of you and your equipment are. Intermediate Defensive Rifle is October 19-21 at Ravensdale, WA. Call the office to register.

Shoot Intensive Handgun outdoors

October is a great month to shoot outside — the sweltering days are over, the cold days haven’t begun. And what better way to welcome fall than Intensive Handgun Skills. Make a giant leap forward in your speed and accuracy — and nothing builds speed like shooting steel. Intensive Handgun Skills is October 5-7 at Ravensdale, WA. Call the office to register.

Are you ready to save a life?

Shootings, stabbings, bombings, vehicular attacks — what they all have in common is life-threatening trauma. There are some injuries where death before the arrival of EMS is almost assured if not managed correctly and rapidly.

If such injuries occur to yourself or another during an ongoing fight, recognition and concise management of the injuries becomes critical. You may be the first responder. Do you have the knowledge and skill to make a difference?

Gain that knowledge and skill in this powerful one-day class — Tactical First Aid.

  • The true nature of civilian gunshot wounds, their low lethality and realities of their medical management
  • How to rapidly determine the relative seriousness of an injury and how that will affect your tactical treatment plan
  • The concept of “care under fire” and how it differs from a non-tactical medical situation
  • Techniques for moving casualties to a safer environment
  • Basic airway and ventilation assessment and management within a tactical setting
  • Assessment and management of bleeding and shock
  • Assessment and management of penetrating and blunt trauma
  • How to prepare a tactical first aid kit that will dramatically increase your treatment capabilities
