Active Shooter Defense Class

You can never be too prepared when it comes to an active shooter scenario. In this 4 hour class, we cover the most important information needed to keep you and your loved ones safe during the worst-case scenario. Through a combination of classroom and practical training, we will teach you how to prevent an active shooter, and how to run, hide and fight in the event that you are faced with a life or death situation. You will be taught basic medical training such as applying tourniquets and stopping bleeding. In addition, we will show you techniques to properly stop a shooter using your concealed handgun in the event that you are prepared. We will also be taking traditional training a step farther by letting you observe or participate in scenarios in our dynamic training facility using training ammunition.



Our Introduction to Firearms course introduces new shooters to safe use, storage, and operation of a Handgun. This course will aid students in becoming an informed buyer from caliber selection to sizing and features of firearms.
