Direct Response To Active Shooter
Mass killing and active shooter events are a constant concern in today’s society. Whether in a school, a church, or a workplace, defense against an active killer cannot be left to the Police alone, as the time between when violence is initiated and when police arrive and confront the killer, represents the probability of extensive loss of life. Those on site must responsible for defending themselves until the Police can arrive, however, very few people are prepared to do so. This course fills that gap.
The course builds the skills necessary for a concealed firearm carrier to efficiently and effectively stop the violence by ending the killer’s activity. Classroom instruction, range training, simulators, and scenarios build a high degree of skill in the student, along with an understanding of how to apply the learned tactics, techniques, and procedures against an armed and aggressive adversary. Starting with OWB carry for the first 2 days, then moving to IWB and true concealed carry for the final three days, this course harnesses the reality of concealed carry and builds real-world techniques and procedures for the student. Based on extensive research about the reality of mass killing events, this course is designed to create a realistic training environment focused on building the skill sets of the armed citizen, the actual “first responder.”
Physical difficulty level: Intermediate (This is a very active course; the student should be prepared for significant physical activity.)
