When out in public locations, your safety and the safety of others depends on your response skills when someone attempts to commit mass murders. The police cannot protect you everywhere at all times. This ten hour course covers what to do before the police are able to respond, and includes avoidance and escape as well as responding with your handgun. Extensive discussion of utilizing the floor plans of your work, your church, or other public areas you visit are included in the course. The complexities of shooting threats in situations that include other people in close proximity to you are also discussed. The class includes scenario-based “force-on-force” practice with provided airsoft handgun replicas. This practice orients you to avoiding, evading, and defending yourself against active shooters. Real firearms are not utilized in this class and there are no prerequisites.
