Course Info: This is a 2 day, 20-hour course designed to inform and instruct lawfully armed citizens in their defensive decisions and equip them with realistic skills that enable an effective and lawful approach to personal security concerns. Employing a highly dynamic combination of lecture, demonstration, and practical application, the course goes past the concentration on shooting skills that most concealed carry classes focus on and provides a combination of “hard” and “soft” skills and strategies “Beyond the Gun” that opens minds and options for armed citizens. The class consists of four hours of video “view ahead”, four hours of lecture and practical application on Saturday from 0800-1200, and six hours of intensive pistol skills. Sunday is 100% range time incorporating those lessons in a challenging and PRACTICAL live fire environment. Your mind will be educated on how to use your mouth, your feet and situationally appropriate levels of force. Cost is $400 plus a $25 cash only range fee, with 800 rounds required for the class.
