Your safety and the safety of others depends on your response skills when threatened by others in public locations. The police cannot protect you everywhere at all times. This eight hour course covers what to do before the police are able to respond. The content includes avoidance, escape, and responding with your concealed handgun.
We utilize the floor plans of your work, your church, or other public areas you visit during the course. We discuss and practice the complexities of shooting threats in situations that include other people in close proximity to you. What you are doing while you are shooting is just as important as shooting.
