FASTER Gear Suggestions

Due to policy changes at the training facilities we use for FASTER, the ‘Serpa’ holster will no longer be permitted in any class. See below of an inexpensive alternative.
If you purchase any items from, please see this VIDEO on for details on how you can support FASTER Saves Lives with every purchase you make on
  • If you have a gun, you probably don’t need to run out and buy another one.  If the firearm you have fits the general suggestions below and you are comfortable and confident with it then use it for the classes
  • If you don’t have a gun yet and you will at attending one of the Foundation classes (you are registered for one right?), get with the class instructor and let him know you want to try out some guns at the class.  Jack will get you squared away for the Foundations and you will most likely leave with a good idea on what you will want to purchase.
Hopefully this helps you get ready to train with us this summer.  Don’t forget the ‘personal comfort’ items you will want also.  Hat, sunscreen, folding chair, cooler, bug spray, UpLULA Loader etc etc.
Please, call or email if you have any questions or want to get more ideas.
See you soon,
