Warrior Poet Society - pistol 1

monday, February 26

WPS from Dalton, GA - Our goal is to create realistic, well thought out, and easy to understand training courses. Our Tactics Instructors John Lovell, Paul Perkerson, and Sifu Alan Baker 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.

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.
