This 1 day course combines prior skills taught in Rifle 1 and Rifle 2 courses with active problem solving. Students will be challenged in multiple range evolutions both individually and in groups. Rifle 3 brings the gun and the fun together in one place.
Expect more movement and positional changes, but this doesn't mean you need to be a Crossfit enthusiast - this class is for anybody who meets the pre-reqs and can be completed at the individual's own pace.
Come with an open mind and full mags, because it's action packed and a real blast.

*Students seeking to take a Rifle 3 course with Warrior Poet Society MUST have already completed our own Rifle 1 & 2 course in addition to our Pistol 1 course, instructed by either John Lovell or Paul Perkerson.
Another great class with Paul and Rocco! A lot of drills and “running and gunning” made this my favorite class to date. Lace up your running shoes or boots and get ready to apply everything you’ve learned in Rifle 1 & 2. Highly recommend this class!
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 !!
Rifle 3 is a must for anyone that is serious about being a capable citizen, ready to protect and defend if/when evil visits you. Sam and Josh made a great team instructing and guiding us thru the new skills and techniques. Then into the drills, the awesome drills. Challenging, but not impossible. They allowed you to push yourself as hard as you wanted, as long as you were operating safely, but even if you didn't want to go hard, it was still challenging with controlled stress inoculation that reveals your weaknesses and challenging your mind, body, and spirit. MEN...find the class on their schedule nearest to you and start budgeting for the fee and ammo asap. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
I took this class a few months ago and it was well worth the time and money. I had originally only signed up for day 1 & 2 but decided if I was going to make the trip then might as well stay for day 3. I am more than glad I stayed for the third day. Positional transitions/changes, types of reloads, handgun transitions, moving drills, unconventional positions etc. The drills really helped to reinforce what was learned over the previous two days. It was all super helpful. Watching online and then trying to go to the range and do drills is good, but being there with a full day of Paul and Sam sharing all their years of experience was very helpful and informative. I highly recommend this class to anyone and if they come back to Tennessee I'll probably take the course again as a refresher. Bring a notepad.
This class can be both a great ending to a week of learning, as well as a standalone refresher (I'll be taking it again for sure). Paul teaching style fits perfectly with points of emphasis this class aims to reenforce: rifle control, aiming, recoil mitigation, both while stationary and on during all kinds of movement, all the while utilizing cover, slicing techniques, and maintaining situational awareness. Despite being a very dynamic course rich with action, safety emphasis AND related behavior enforcement were eye opening, despite years of previous experience. Great job by Paul and WPS.
