WPS Tactical Training Courses

Our goal is to create realistic, well thought out, and easy to understand training courses. Our Tactics Instructors John Lovell, Paul Perkerson, and Josh Griffiths strive to help students understand the ‘bigger picture’ so they can identify the current state of their training and where their skill set needs to improve. What sets our instructors apart is their ability to break down complex skills and tactics into basic and simple ‘bites’ that students can readily comprehend and follow.

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.

For single-man clearing outside of an active shooter scenario, we will major on more deliberate clearing methods.

Topics covered will include basic self defense techniques, pistol takeaways, knife takeaways, EDC setups, situational awareness, mindset, and hand to hand combat introduction. While these skills and techniques are employed by Special Forces Operators, they are life-or-death practices that are integral to self defense for any civilian.

**Due to the current ammo shortage in the US***

For your convenience, we are running our classes with less ammunition than usual. We recommend anywhere from 300-500 rounds per class. However you have the option to shoot less of your ammo in class and still learn the course. After any drill has been performed in class you may dry fire or shoot less rounds at the firing line, while still receiving the same level of personal attention and course credit.


You may shoot reloaded ammo (at your own risk) or steel case. You MAY NOT shoot any steel penetrating core, i.e. NATO green tip. We recommend Fiocchi ammo if you are looking for reliable ammo at good prices.
