WPS Concealed Carry Training Courses

Our goal is to create realistic, well thought out, and easy to understand concealed carry training courses. Our Tactics Instructors John Lovell, Paul Perkerson, Josh Kent, and Sifu Alan Baker - alongside Medical Instructor Pat Krentz - 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.

Classes sell out quickly due to high demand.

New classes are added monthly, so please check back often.

Pistol Concealed Carry Training Courses

PISTOL 1

This 1 day course lays the foundation for all future pistol training. Safety, range etiquette, clearing, loading, equipment, fundamentals of fire, drawstroke, clearing stoppages, common mistakes, and warrior mindset are the main subjects tackled in this essential course. Though this training is designed for beginners, the subject matter and technique allows students to build realistic skills that can survive the test of stress and small time constraints.

PISTOL 2

This 1 day course begins with a review of safety protocols and an audit of each individual’s shooting fundamentals and basic skill sets (draw stroke, reloads, etc). During this course, students will learn use of cover/concealment, concealed carry considerations, fighter mindset, and movement. Prior training is required to be eligible to attend this course.

PISTOL 3

This 1 day course is all about moving, shooting, and thinking under stress. Students are expected to have previously gained unconscious competency in their fundamentals of fire and basic skill sets. Topics covered include, but are not limited to: fighting from concealment, one-handed operation, movement, use of cover, integrating hand-to-hand combat, and integrating tactics in order to ‘fight smarter.’

Safety, range etiquette, weapon operation, accessories, fundamentals of fire, shooting/ready positions, rapid target acquisition, target transitions, clearing of stoppages, rapid fire, and warrior mindset are the main subjects tackled in this essential course.

RIFLE 2

This 1 day course begins with a review of safety protocols and an audit of each individual’s shooting fundamentals. During this course, students will be introduced to movement, use of cover and/or concealment, alternate body positions, scenario based stress fires, fighter mindset, and more.

RIFLE 3

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.

VIP RIFLE TRAINING EXPERIENCE

If you were asked to build your dream getaway, what would it entail? Expansive views of nature? Great food? Hanging out with a cool group of people who share your ideals? Luxurious accommodations? Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad to shoot some guns, too. Well, life is short, so let’s make it happen. This will be the ultimate education vacation for a War Poet, and we hope you'll join us in this all-inclusive experience at the Cedar Gate retreat in Kingfisher, Oklahoma.

INTRO TO LONG RANGE PATROL

This 2 day course teaches what is necessary, both logistically and tactically, to engage in a long range patrol in enemy occupied territory. With the expectation of a small amount of time in the classroom, students should expect to ‘learn by doing’, and come ready to work. Relevant topics of instruction and practical application include, but are not limited to: prepping for a patrol, introduction to land navigation, principles of patrolling, reconnaissance, basic military tactics, etc.

ONE MAN ROOM CLEARING

This is high-stakes chess and the unforgiving game of angles. Here, pistol/rifle skills graduate into something far more important: tactics. This class is a mix between classroom time, drills, force-on-target, and force-on-force exercises. The course will review different types of clearing methods and display the various tactics that make them successful. For single-man clearing outside of an active shooter scenario, we will major on more deliberate clearing methods.

EDC COMBATIVES

This 2 day course introduces the fundamentals of SOCP, as well as techniques from other combat-focused disciplines designed to meet the threats of day to day civilian life. 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.

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

For your convenience, we are running our concealed carry 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.

Refund Policy for Classes

  • If you cancel 60 or more days before the class date, you will receive a 50% refund.
  • If you cancel 59-30 days before the class date, you will receive a 25% refund.
  • If you cancel less than 30 days before the class date, you will receive no refund.

Refund Policy for Excursions

The $500 per person deposit is nonrefundable. Deposits and other payments exceeding the $500 per person are refundable in full up to sixty days prior to departure.
