Course Overview

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.

    Excellent Instructors / Excellent Course

    Posted by Blake Hawkes on Jul 1st 2024

    I just finished the Warrior Poet Society Rifle 1-3 courses taught by Paul P and Sam H. The courses exceeded my expectations in many ways. I have been a WPSN subscriber for over a year, and have watched these courses multiple times, so I was familiar with the content and generally knew what to expect. I also did a reasonable amount of prep work to be ready for the courses. This certainly helped, and gave me a leg-up on the actual hands-on course. Having said that, the in-person course was even more full-featured, valuable, enlightening, and better than I was expecting. I was very impressed with the knowledge and skills of Paul and Sam, and they are the "real deal". Their knowledge and firearms performance skills are excellent, and were very complimentary to each other. I came away more knowledgeable and with more awareness of what I need to work on, where I should improve, and how I can be a better prepared warrior and defender of freedom. Thanks WPSN! You guys rock!

    Amazing training

    Posted by JM on Apr 17th 2024

    These comments are for the entire week (Pistol 1&2, Rifle 1,2&3) I spent with Paul and (the other) Josh. Paul is the absolute real deal and I am very glad I was able to train with him. Josh is also an awesome instructor and will soon have his own classes that will be undoubtedly worth taking. As a relative beginner, I was learning as fast as I could. They were reasonably patient with my progress, though pushing me hard. Their lessons finally started to gel toward the end in Rifle 3 as the exercises showed exactly how improvements in basic skills drive almost all future skills. I know I have a few more IQ points to regain with weapons in my hands, but safely going from unconscious incompetence to at least conscious incompetence on much of what we were training was just what I wanted and needed. Looking forward to training with both of them again. Thank you guys.

    What an Experience!!!!!!!!

    Posted by Brad on Feb 17th 2024

    So… like any good American you have this thing called an AR-15 and we all know how to use them right? Don’t think so fast! Rifle 1 is the perfect introduction this weapon and how to effectively use it in home defense. Paul, Sam and Josh are incredible. I learned so much from these guys and had a blast doing it. From sighting in your weapon for close range combat to a manual of arms for maneuvering you gun around obstacles….this class has everything you need to defend your home with a rifle. We have all this cool gear in our “Tacticool” lives, but how often do we get out there with experts to show us how to “really” use them. I can’t recommend this class enough for anyone that wants to defend their homestead. Thank you Paul, Sam and Josh for an amazing experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Outstanding! Pistol 2 Rifle 1&2

    Posted by Pollux Dietz on Dec 17th 2023

    Paul, Josh, Sam and Luke are top tier instructors! I highly recommend these courses to anyone who is interested in beginning or looking to expand their skills and knowledge with firearms. I learned a lot and look forward to practicing the famous "Lovell Shuffle". I'm looking forward to my next sessions with WPS. Well done guys!

    Rifle 3

    Posted by Lucian on Sep 4th 2023

    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!

    PISTOL 1&2 RIFLE 1,2&3

    Posted by JASON ANDERSON on Apr 10th 2023

    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 !!

    Highly Recommend

    Posted by Tyson Thornton on Mar 11th 2023

    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!

    Awesome class with Paul and Sam

    Posted by Tim the tool man on Jul 15th 2022

    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.

    Great mix of culmination of theory and hands on

    Posted by Dmitriy Sokolovskiy on Dec 11th 2021

    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.
