Pre-enrollment is strictly required: It is not okay to just show up. You must pre-register, either over the phone or online. The classes fill very quickly so we recommend you call well in advance. Confirmation information will be sent to you by mail, including a map to our location along with any other information you need before attending class. Please note the following details:
- Women who are pregnant or nursing may not participate in live-fire training, due to risks from lead exposure and loud noise.
- Each student will be required to sign a statement that they are legally entitled to own handguns prior to participation in the class.
Many FAS students have asked for training in physically surviving the immediate aftermath of a deadly force attack. What can be done to staunch life-threatening blood loss and similar injuries after you have stopped the attack against you or against a loved one or companion?
It is one thing to carry a firearm for protection but it is another to be able to hit the areas on the threat that effect the quickest stop! Having the best knowledge of the equipment to fit your needs and the know-how to use your firearm effectively is critical. In addition to the role of shot placement in stopping an assailant, armed citizens are obligated not to shoot indiscriminately and endanger others.
Do you know how to defend your handgun against a large, aggressive attacker, or what to do if a street thug sticks a gun in your face during an assault and threatens to blow your head off? Once you complete this class, you will know exactly what to do.
An extension of our popular Handgun retention and disarming class, students will get a review of the core handgun retention and disarming techniques. Also covered: long-gun retention and disarming, dynamic non-scripted attacks to drawn and holstered gun, defending against multiple attackers, and low light retention. (Pre-requisite is the Handgun Retention and Disarming seminar AND the free re-take).
In 2018, voters approved Initiative 1639, which among other things, requires any person who desires to purchase a semi-automatic rifle in the state of Washington, to have taken a firearms safety training course. This special class has been developed and is being offered to satisfy this need. Course content includes Basic Firearms Safety Rules, Firearms and Children (including secure gun storage and talking to children about gun safety), Firearms and Suicide Prevention, WA State Use of Deadly Force Law, Secure Gun Storage (to prevent unauthorized access and use), Safe Handling of Firearms, and State & Federal Firearms Laws (including prohibited firearms transfers). Proof of training to satisfy the requirements of I-1639 will be provided at the end of the 4-hour course of instruction. Cost: $60.00
