    WA Training Options.

    here in WA, you are not required to take any sort of class to obtain your CCW. Personally. I have some military experience, long history with guns. I have shot my pistol and practiced the draw, etc.

    What are my options for courses/classes in washington state? I am always interested in becoming more fluent. What goods a pistol if you panic...none.

    Any reccomendation for coursed in the NW? WA/OR/ID?

    Just feeling out my options.

    As JD suggest, Insights has good instructors. Their actual gun classes are out at Issaquah P.D. but they teach some classes (maintenance/armorer) classes at Wades in Bellevue. Wades does have NRA and NRA-like classes... for you they might be boring.

    Just south there's the Seattle Firearms Academy, they are awesome. Their facility alone is worth the trip.

    They had to drop that. Too many criminals were suffering from hearing loss as a result of such violent tactics.
