    Self Defense and Firearms Training: WA State

    I'm looking for resources on where I might find some good classes to attend on the topics of "self defense" and firearms for the state of Washington (prefer near Seattle/Tacoma.)

    I especially would like to find a professional course offered in which the laws of self defense are covered for the state of Washington.

    Any thoughts or recommendations?

    The Firearms Academy of Seattle is highly recommended by many professionals, including Massad Ayoob.

    Firearms Academy of Seattle, Inc. 360-978-6100

    It's in the Chehalis area.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    I have no insite but it is fantastic you want to get educated on your firearm and laws. Wish more folks would do it also.

    InSights Training Center is in Bellevue, WA.

    I'd recommend them. Took a class of theirs in PA a couple years ago. Good stuff.

    I will second what has already been posted.

    In WA State, you have two very good resources for firearms training.

    The Firearms Academy of Seattle and Insights Training Center.

    Both are top notch. ( I have trained with both in the past.)

    I going to head down there one of these days to hone my skills. Just a matter of getting the time off. I'd love to train with Mass Ayoob.

    Firearms Academy of Seattle does a few classes in Arlington at the Norpoint range. depending on your location, that may be closer.
