So you own a sweet rifle or handgun and think your self-defense needs are met? Sure, you can take a box of shells to the range, sight it in and call it good, but – if you bought it for self-defense reasons – that’s like buying a car, driving it up the street, and proclaiming you’re ready for the Indy 500. When your life is on the line your heart will race a thousand beats a second and your hands will shake. Ever try shooting with your opposite hand? Ever try hitting a target when your balance is off? Defending yourself isn’t like shooting at the range – or maybe I’m preaching to the choir. Either way, enter Weaponcraft:
Yep, it’s SHTFblog sponsor promotion day. Think of it as a brief commercial break in a long running SHTF special program. See the left sidebar. It’s important to note here that I contacted Weaponcraft, not vice-versa. Why? Because they rule!

You gotta see their site for a full description of each class. Front Sight is a well known company, but their one day handgun course is $1,000.00! Weaponcraft’s basic, one day handgun course is only $125.00, and yes, it meets the requirements for a concealed weapons permit or CCW.
You don’t own a rifle, but you’re thinking about getting one? Wait! At Weaponcraft you can try one of THEIR rifles. See what you like and get training at the same time. You wouldn’t buy a car before trying it out, why do it with a rifle?
Scope their site: www.WeaponcraftTraining.com. It was just re-designed, so it’s super fresh.
They’re enrolling for April classes now. That’s wicked – ayuh!
