OC (Pepper Spray) Defensive Use

There really is more to it than "splash and dash" when it comes to defensive sprays.  In this two-hour class, we discuss the varying types and effectiveness of defensive sprays.  

​Concealed Carry Concepts

Concealed Carry Concepts is our flagship course and the next logical step after a basic concealed carry class.  We developed this curriculum after considerable demand.  In CCC, we discuss the pros and cons of various concealment holsters and methods. We explore the criminal thought process, how they select victims and how to deselect yourself as a victim.  Students will engage in realistic shooting drills based on actual self-defense encounters.  This is much more than just a shooting class. Please be aware:  this class covers violent criminal behavior which is sometimes graphic.  Bring at least 250 rounds of ammunition, a good carry pistol, a decent holster and magazine carriers.  Prerequisite:  A basic handgun class like the Oklahoma Handgun License / Self Defense Act course. (This class does not satisfy the requirements for a handgun license. See the above SDA class.)  This class is accredited for eight hours of law enforcement continuing education through CLEET, but is open to all.

The Big Seven

There are seven generally accepted fundamentals of handgun marksmanship.  Do you know what they are and how to apply them?  This class spends a full day creating competence through a building-block learning approach.  

Self-Defense Act / Handgun License

Self Defense Act/Handgun License Class.  I only do private SDA classes.  Email for further information and enrollment.  For open enrollment classes, I recommend:  Wendy Taylor.  This class satisfies the training requirements for an Oklahoma Handgun License.   Our personal experience and training in dealing with violent criminals enhances the otherwise dry material of the state-mandated course. We don't just regurgitate the material like many instructors.  We use photos, videos and class participation to enhance your SDA experience!  Requirements:  50 rounds of ammunition, eye protection, ear protection, brimmed hat (ballcap), photo ID.

House of Worship Security


Recent events have shown us the importance of having a properly trained church security team in place.  This class focuses on how to deal with the what to do if the worst happens, but more importantly, how to head off trouble before it happens.   

Defensive Carbine

The AR-15 carbine is a very effective tool for home defense and an enjoyable sporting rifle.  This eight-hour class focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of the AR platform.  We will work on zeroing, reloading, malfunctions and choosing the right ammunition for the right task.  Bring at 200 rounds of ammunition.  

​Handgun Instructor Development

The Handgun Instructor Development course is an intensive two-day class worth 20 hours of CLEET continuing education Course #21-0535. Upon completion of this class, the student will have satisfied the training portion of the requirements to become an Oklahoma Self Defense Act Instructor.  DTS is one of the few non-governmental entities with a instructor program recognized by the state.  Unlike all of the others the DTS Instructor Development program is specifically designed teach the instructor candidate to present the Oklahoma Handgun License class with a focus on the law and adult learning.

Personal Protection in the Workplace

PPW is a private class customized to the client.  It covers planning and prevention, pre-incident indicators, body language of dangerous people and defensive chemical spray usage.  An optional firearms component can be added, at the request of the client.  Contact us through the website for information.  

Home Defense Shotgun

There is no more misunderstood defensive tool than the shotgun.  This class covers ammunition choices, how to prepare to defend your home and secrets which make the shotgun comfortable to shoot.  

Basic Handgun

We have introductory and basic handgun classes which cover handgun function, safe handling, and range etiquette.  These classes are geared toward the new or prospective gun owner.  We discuss the pros and cons of different firearms platforms.  There is a short presentation and a no stress question and answer session followed by some live-fire instruction.  If you have questions or concerns about firearms ownership, this is the class for you.  We have three introductory/basic handgun classes.  If you complete levels 1-3, we give you a certificate for an 8-hour basic handgun class. Level 1 is almost entirely safety orientation and manipulations.  Level 2 covers different types of handguns and their operation with an introduction to the fundamentals of marksmanship.  Level 3 focuses mostly on the fundamentals, while Level 4 is an introduction to safe and efficient holster use. 

Defensive Pistol

An eight-hour course focusing on technical marksmanship, holster work, reloading, malfunction clearances and the difference between shooting and fighting with a handgun.  Students should expect to fire  500  rounds.  It is recommended that students be in reasonable physical condition.  Bring a pistol, quality holster, three magazines, magazine carriers, eye and ear protection and a brimmed hat.
