Beyond A.L.I.C.E. – Engaging the active shooter

Our “Active Shooter” training is real firearms training intended to prepare the participant for an active shooter encounter.

Our “Active Shooter” training is above and beyond any ALICE training you may have heard of or participated in.   Our “Active Shooter” training is real firearms training intended to prepare the participant for an active shooter encounter in the workplace, place of worship, shopping mall and everyday life. 

Our “Active Shooter” training teaches more than throwing books, papers and pens at an armed assailant. Our “Active Shooter” training trains the participant in the safe and proficient use of a firearm for the defense of one’s life, the lives of his or her loved ones, members of a congregation or co-workers.

Our “Active Shooter” training was NOT created by retired law enforcement officers or military personnel, with time on their hands, sitting around a conference table, looking for a way to keep busy.

Our “Active Shooter” training is a nationally recognized, official NRA, advanced firearms training course.  Training includes basic through advanced training.  No prerequisite is required.  The complete course of training is required regardless of prior training, certification or licensing.  Safety is paramount and it must be assured that all participants have the same instruction when engaging in the live-fire range training. 

Successful completion of our “Active Shooter” training provides the participant with a nationally recognized, official NRA certificate of training that can be used for the applying for a State of Florida concealed carry weapons license. Our “Active Shooter” training exceeds the the State of Florida’s training requirement for concealed carry weapons license application.

Our “Active Shooter” training is an intense, 15-hour, training course that will require a minimum of 250 rounds fired on the range using a defensive caliber handgun, incorporating drawing from a concealment holster, firing after drawing from a holster, engaging multiple assailants, while utilizing cover and concealment.

Training includes:
Environment risk assessment
• Situational awareness
• Mental preparedness
• Psychological consequences
• Defensive firearm familiarization and selection
• Concealed carry techniques
• Drawing and firing from a concealed carry holster
• Selecting and utilizing cover and concealment
• Confronting and dealing with single and multiple armed assailants

Looking down the barrel of a .45 caliber semi-automatic, pointed at him at point blank range, Pastor Howell survived the attack, receiving only powder burns to his face and neck.

Licensed concealed carry good guy takes out bad guy during a “domestic violence” road rage incident.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd:  ” . . . a perfect stand your ground.”

A long standing axiom, known and taught by those in the self-defense arena, was affirmed by Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, during a press conference Wednesday, August 29th, regarding a fatal, self-defense shooting in Winter Haven, Florida.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd affirms that 3 seconds will determine who survives a deadly threat and who will not.   Sheriff Grady Judd:  “You see how quickly you have to make a decision on whether you live or whether you die.

3 seconds will determine if you are the one who makes the 911 call or the one who is carried away in a black body bag.

 

 

 

 

Tallahassee – Big Pro Gun Rally

It happened Saturday, July 28th in the courtyard of the Florida Capital.

general_distribution-01-e1532990027932.jpg

While patriotic Americans, who support the defense of the 2nd Amendment, gathered in the courtyard of the State Capital, an opposing group, March for Our Lives gathered only blocks away.  Numbers for the two groups were similar.  However there was on striking difference between the two groups.

One group gathered to show support for the 2nd Amendment and every American’s right to self-defense and the other group gathered to gain support for their effort in restricting Floridians’ rights to own the firearm of his or her choice and self-defense.  One group wants to preserve every American’s Constitutional rights and the other group wants to have those rights eliminated. 

One group was entertained by live music, singers and dynamic speakers.  Opening ceremonies included the Pledge of Allegiance the live singing of the National Anthem, by Krystal Walters .   The other group marched in the street, after a closed-door, round-table conference, led in chants by organizers using megaphones.  At their rally site, attendees were entertained by angry speakers shouting political, anti-Constitution rhetoric and anti-gun talking points.

Which group was which, view the photos below and draw your own conclusion.

Santa Fe Texas – We grieve with you

Once again our nation’s peace has been shattered by the demonic, heinous act of one demented individual.  Our broken hearts grieve with the families of the victims of the Santa Fe Texas High School tragedy and we pray for the speedy recovery of the injured. 

Heart_Wolf_Sheep_Texas 01

As law enforcement en devours to harden public school “gun free” zones, our places of worship and private schools remain vulnerable.   Our churches, ministries and other places of worship, as well as their educational facilities and learning centers, must not be neglected.

We encourage all faith based organizations to look into Guardian Training for their ministry.

Our places of worship are the next soft targets!

Church Guardian 400_B.TM

In-Gauge of Polk County is the only NRA charted, non-profit organization that provides such training in the state of Florida.

Gun Shows – Florida

 

Gun Show 12_NO

Official NRA firearm training classes are NEVER conducted at gun shows.
All official NRA firearm training classes exceed the State of Florida’s
training requirement of concealed carry license application.

Those who conduct gun show concealed carry classes do not like us telling you this, but they cannot dispute it.   They want you to believe that just because they are a NRA certified instructor they are conducting an official NRA firearm training class.  Nothing could be further from the truth!

Save time and money taking a gun show concealed carry class.   NOT!
