*Students seeking to take a Pistol 2 course with Warrior Poet Society MUST have already completed our own Pistol 1 course, instructed by either John Lovell or Paul Perkerson.
As I reviewed in Pistol 1….this was a life changing experience for me! Paul, Sam and Josh are amazing. I highly recommend taking Pistol 1 to set the framework for this class regardless of your level of experience. Pistol 2 builds off the lessons in Pistol 1. You can see that John and Paul have developed a system that gradually builds up your skill levels over the course of their training. The force-on-force segment was awesome and eye opening. By Day Two you build a bond with your trainers and they really start honing in on your personal development. I wish I had the time with my work schedule to do all three days. I WILL be back for more Warrior Poet classes and intend to make all of them part of my annual training routine. Thank you Paul, Sam and Josh for an amazing experience!!!!!!!!!!
Just finished taking pistol 1&2 and rifle 1,2&3 with Paul & Josh and all I can say is what an amazing week. Not only the skills that was taught with both pistol and rifle but the way they teach is so easy to understand. Paul is great at what he does and would highly recommend any class he teaches. I wasn't expecting Josh to be there but what a treat to have him there. Josh is a great instructor and when you get Paul and Josh together they make the class so entertaining and fun at the same time they are teaching you all the fundamentals and advanced skills to become a better protector. If you're holding off on taking these classes like I was just because you want "John Lovell" as an instructor I'm here to say Paul and Josh were absolutely great. I would like to train with the man himself John Lovell also but I would train anything Paul and Josh teach and feel just as warm and tingly inside as I would with John Lovell. Don't wait just sign up and do it you will not regret it !!
Sam, Josh, and Paul make an excellent team. Their weapon skills are only surpassed by their teaching skills. I highly recommend this course and these instructors.
My 2nd day with Paul and Sam. It was phenomenal training for an armed citizen. After doing the pistol 1 with them, I knew I was with the right instructors, to learn to be a better protector. The "Thought process" exercise was mind blowing. It was a simulated "force on force" scenario. This is an amazing exercise. I recommend you have your hand up, and volunteer for this exercise. In this exercise you will learn things, you Never knew about yourself! Thank you Paul and Sam. eddiebeans
My second day with Paul and Sam running the pistol, and my second day not just learning, but having fun while learning. Even after 32 years of using/carrying professionally, there was something new to learn. I strongly recommend you do Pistol 1 first!
Finished Pistol 2 in Wiggins CO yesterday with our instructors Paul and Sam. I can honestly say that after having taken pistol 1, rifle 1 and rifle 2 last year with John, this was my favorite class so far. My expectations were met and surpassed and without a doubt the training I received was well worth the investment. I look forward to planning a trip to GA for the next step. Big thanks to Paul and Sam both and hope to train with y’all again.
I was completely floored with the amount of training I received from this course. Paul really hit this out of the park, along with Rocko. Both instructors were very knowledgeable and were able to teach that knowledge in a easily retainable way. The force on force scenario really opened my eyes to how much you have to be aware of your surroundings and have a plan A all the way to Z. I will be back as a repeating customer. #battlegnome #WARPOET
Did in conjunction with Pistol 1. Great build from Pistol 1 teachings. John and his instructors truly provide, in addition to best-in-class training, an energetic fun setting.
This is the best, in depth pistol training you will find in the civilian market. John will take his time with each student and ensure they are understanding and correctly applying each technique during his lessons. After prior pistol training in both the military and law enforcement, this course absolutely holds up.
