Concealed Carry Handgun
Concealed Carry Handgun is 3T’s 1-day handgun course and is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of fighting for their life with a concealed handgun. Whether you are law enforcement, military, or armed civilian, Concealed Carry Handgun will strengthen your understanding of deploying and utilizing a concealed carry handgun in a lethal force encounter.

2-Day AR-15 Carbine Operator
This is a two-day course for the beginner or experienced shooter looking to hone their skills with the most popular rifle on the market. Topics include: Situational Awareness, Carbine Zeroing, Reloads, Malfunction Clearing, Cover and Concealment, Shooting While Moving, and a Night Shoot with white light deployment.

Women's Only Intro to Handgun
Women’s Only Intro to Handgun is 3T’s eight hour, introductory level course specifically designed for women who are new to firearms in general, or new to handguns in particular. While safety is stressed at all times, this course is taught in a fun, relaxed environment free of macho attitudes and weekend-warrior, Hollywood nonsense. Whether you just want to have a handgun in your home, or you have or are considering getting a concealed carry permit, this course will introduce you to the fundamentals of the handgun.

Tactical Home/Defense Shotgun
3T’s Tactical / Home Defense Shotgun (T/HD Shotgun) is an 8 hour course that teaches the students the fundamentals of fighting with a shotgun. While many people are familiar with the basics of the 12 gauge shotgun, and quite a few have hunted with shotguns, using a shotgun in a tactical / home defense environment presents its own unique challenges. The capabilities and effective range of the shotgun are often very misunderstood issues and subject to quite a bit of urban legend and myth that don’t meet reality.

Tactical Pistol II
Tactical Pistol II (TPII) is 3T’s two day tactical pistol course designed to build upon and expand the skills taught in Tactical Pistol I. TPII continually reinforces the mindset that this course is not just about shooting – it’s about learning how to fight for your life with a pistol. Whether law enforcement, military, or armed civilian, TPII will enhance your skills when utilizing the pistol in a lethal force encounter.

Armed Citizen Response to the Active Shooter
This course is designed to give the Armed Citizen the skills and abilities to respond to and stop an Active Shooter should they ever find themselves in just such a scenario. This course will consist of 1 day of classroom instruction and 2 full days of range training. Topics covered will included case studies of Active Shooter incidents, Tactical Pistol range training, Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) and Close Quarters Battle (CQB) to include one person room entries and clearing, hallway movement, and most importantly, link-up procedures when law enforcement personnel arrive on scene. Force-On-Force training will also be done by use of Air Soft weapons.
