Firearms Purchase Consulting

Buying a pistol can be overwhelming for the first time buyer or even those with a limited amount of experience. We will help you pick the pistol that achieves your goals. As a disinterested party you can trust we aren’t going to steer you in any direction except the one you want to go in. Spending a couple to several hundred dollars on a pistol shouldn’t be a decision made on whim or without a base of knowledge. We’ll sit down over a cup of coffee at a local shop or even come to your home and discuss why you want a pistol, what your experience level is and what options are available to satisfy your requirements. We will also guide you to further references or information to pursue if you aren’t entirely sure at the end of our consult.

W2TF Holsters & How to Draw from One Class

Drawing from a holster isn’t as straightforward as it seems and is the most dangerous thing concealed carry holders typically do on a daily basis. Next to cleaning a gun, most handgun accidents happen while drawing or holstering a firearm. The difficulty is even higher when the gun is under a garment or in a handbag. It’s ironic that almost all “Concealed Carry Permit Classes” fail to teach the student how to actually carry concealed. Let us show you how to do it safely, effectively and smoothly. Smooth with practice is eventually fast.

The class covers various types of holsters, holster pros & cons, selecting a holster, how to draw/reholster, how to do it under different concealment options (clothing) and more.

Drill Session

W2TF Drill Sessions are two to three hour sessions focused on one aspect of defensive shooting. The potential threats we may face as we live our lives are varied. Ranges, numbers of assailants, whether we are moving or not, wounded, sitting, standing or on our back are all factors that can impact our shooting when it counts the most. W2TF drill sessions provide the shooter much needed exercises and opportunities to assess where they are, improve at that moment on the range and be equipped to practice those skills later. We have a dozen different focus areas with more constantly being developed.
