The Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals Course is a comprehensive seminar for anyone considering owning or carrying a firearm for self-defense. This course helps advance the mindset of the responsible defensive firearms owner. The proper manipulation of a firearm is one part of the training. What we will discuss in this class is learning to train on what happens right before and after a deadly encounter. This class is a non-live fire course that includes SIRT pistol training. You will need a quality belt and belt looped clothing for the practical application exercises. This course will NOT include the CCHDF book after July 2019.

Mass shootings have become all too familiar in today's society. This course is designed to give you the information and data to identify, reduce, control, and then eliminate these incidents.
Who should attend?
School staffers, administration, teachers, volunteers, etc.
Church leaders, security, and parishioners.
Parents, grandparents and students.
Anyone concerned about this type of event.
In this course, you will analyze data gathered from mass shootings that have occurred since Columbine to determine what can learned from these tragedies, including whether a reduction in magazine capacity or the banning of any class of firearm would have changed the outcome.
You will also determine whether gun-free zones figure into the planning of these mass murderers; whether victim response at any mass shooting has made a difference; and whether universal background checks or other proposals by gun control advocates stand a chance of stemming the current trajectory of these shootings. At the end, you'll be able to use this data and develop a comprehensive plan designed to eliminate the scourge of these shooters once and for all. This course will give you answers and a course of action. The class book can be purchased through our website. It will no longer be provided after July 2019.

There’s no better way to spend a day away from the office while team building and bonding with other corporate employees. We offer group concealed carry instruction for corporations who may have armed employees on or off the company clock. Most of the training is static and administrative as every office understandably has different liability restrictions. Competition amongst colleagues often leads to strong working bonds and company memories that last a lifetime. Not everyone is on the same level, and that will be addressed by our instructors to help the ones in need of more assistance. Depending on the size of the corporation and number of employees participating, the course can be broken down into groups with multiple days of training. Training firearms, gear and books will be included in the price of the course depending on number of participants. Give us a call or email for fully customized plans to fit your business training requirements and complete details. Due to past issues, you must pay for all students at one time. The class is nominally six hours in length, but sometimes runs a bit longer, based on student questions and lunch.
Gear Needed: Pen and Paper for note taking. Belted clothing for our holsters
