We offer Firearm Competency training and Skill Builder Training in order to enhance confidence and proficiency with a firearm. Skill builders focus on individual skills, which the shooter would call on during a life threatening situation. Various drills are run in order to better prepare the individual for any situations they may encounter during a life or death situation, as well as better prepare the individual to act within the boundaries of the law. Stress induction is introduced in order to better prepare the firearm owner for these encounters.
All training is conducted by PFTC accredited Tactical Firearms Instructors, with experience in various security industries, such as Anti-Poaching, CIT and Close Protection. At Defensive Strategies West we encourage responsible firearm ownership, through education and accountability of our students. In-depth explanations are given concerning the responsible use of firearms as well as what the law stipulates concerning the safe storage and usage of firearms.
Students are taught safe weapons manipulation techniques that are tried and tested throughout the industry. Advice is also given on choosing the appropriate firearm for the intended application. Please call ahead to make an appointment.
