WHAT WE DO
Accuracy Tactics Standards
Where fidelity and pistol craft come together
Connecticut Pistolworx isn't just another Pistol Permit outlet.
We strive to provide only the best, most vetted and verified information and application with regards to education and the use of the semi-automatic pistol.
Our mission and creed is Accuracy, Tactics and Standards.
"Accuracy" is the bed rock of marksman ship and responsibility.
We stand behind this concept because we only cultivate the mindset of responsibility, armed professional or responsible citizen.
Every shot counts and every time the trigger is pressed that bullet gets accounted for. To mitigate accountability we push for strict focus on accuracy.
"Tactics" is the process of observing orienting deciding and applying the best resolution to the problem at hand. We work towards people approaching firearms problems in an analytical manner not just a one size fits all approach. As Travis Healy promotes the concept be a "problem solver". We do this by helping students understand what works for what situation, but more importantly why it works. We encourage self discovery and we do not shun questions or opposing views as this offers another opportunity to solidify a tactic or an approach.
"Standards" means that we don't deviate due to personalities or pressure or convenience. Holding standards is the integrity that gives professionals trust from the public and the public (armed citizens) a foundation to make sound decisions based on morals and ethics. If we are running a drill a DQ is a DQ, a pass is earned and a failure is another opportunity to learn from, but it will not count. It is or it isn't.
At this time we are offering basic pistol permit classes, private club training as well as private individual sessions with our specialty being pistols, but not limited to shotgun, AR15 platform rifle and tactics ranging from low light to active shooter.
We conduct Force on Force training using the Simunitions FX ammo and weapons to provide the end user an undeniably the most realistic and definitive defensive training available. We are currently certified with Simunitions and U.T.M. and all of our training events run per strict safety protocols. Our training classes are conducted on established lesson plans based on adult learning theory and our FX classes are stocked with manufacturer safety equipment. We don't skimp on student safety nor will you ever get the feeling that the class is being winged or "we'll see how the day goes" kind of lessons.
We also provide the following services for clubs, churches, businesses as well as government entities:
Security Assessments including structural and procedural
On-site medical emergency training
Active Shooter response

20 year career in Public Safety, Gun owner since 1999.
Training is a journey not a destination.
As the world turns, incidents and events give us either validation or cause to seek evidence based solutions. We only teach and train in tactics and methods that work, we avoid current trends or because "that's how we've always done it" ideology.
Our experience is derived from former training either via past or current service, formal firearms and tactical training.
To stay focused and sharp we compete on a regular basis in various steel shooting matches, IDPA, endurance shooting team events, CQB airsoft and regular collective and individual range sessions.
Current certifications with Simunitions and U.T.M. to conduct Force on Force scenario based training.
