Old School Gun School
(Formerly Northwest Safety First)
Join us for defensive firearm safety & skills that you can bet your life on!
Our courses are designed in a logical, step-by-step progression that makes it easy for gun owners of any background to progress through their training in a safe, and confident manner. We keep our classes small. Our returning students often refer to us as the “Old School Gun School”. Maybe that’s because there is nothing “New Age” or “Revolutionary” about firearm safety and skills and the concepts that we teach. Defensive handgun training can be a very personal experience. Everyone is different, and every firearm is different. Finding that perfect match is a balance of reliable information, directed experimentation, and knowledgeable, personal training.
Give us a day … maybe a few days … maybe even a week or two … and you will come away with an expanded level of knowledge, competency and confidence you may not have thought possible. You will be in the company of other like-minded students and caring, supportive instructors that will lead you through a comprehensive, proven curriculum of defensive firearm safety and skills that will result in a practiced skill set you will keep for a lifetime.
Is that a big statement? Yes, it is. But don’t just take our word for it. Go to our testimonials page and read about the experiences of others that have walked this path.
Choose a class with a small group of others, or choose private training for a one-on-one experience tailored to your specific needs.
Knowing HOW to shoot may be the easy part. But understanding WHEN … and most importantly; … when NOT to use deadly force will give you the knowledge to care for yourself and your loved ones with confidence on a daily basis.
You can choose from classes that include:
Firearm safety and gear selection
Live-fire shooting skills
Gun Laws & the Judicious Use of Lethal Force
Concealed carry permits honored in more than 30 other states.
Children and firearms
Okay. Now you are just a mouse click away from more information. Good information is the Mother of learning. If you have any questions; just give us a call at (360) 378-1776.
We always aim to please!
