Active Shooter Defense Training

Our ‘Active Shooter Defense Training‘ is an advanced level tactical training class.

Our ‘Active Shooter Defense Training‘ course is 10 hours in duration (5 hours classroom instruction and 5 hours live-fire range training).

This course exceeds the State of Florida’s training requirements for concealed carry license application. 

This is an advanced level class that requires the completion of our 5-hour basic concealed carry training class or any official NRA pistol training course for participation. The possession of a concealed carry license is NOT a recognized prerequisite.

This course addresses and teaches:

  – Situational awareness

  – Mental preparedness

  – Threat assessment

  – Threat mitigation

  – Legal considerations in the use of lethal force

  – Concealed carry techniques

  – Selection of the proper firearm self-defense

  – Types of concealed carry holsters and selection

  – Ammunition for defensive purposes

  – Drawing from a holster and re-holstering

  – Engaging single and multiple assailants

  – Dealing with and correcting firearm malfunctions

This is not a beginner level course.  The participant must have a basic and working knowledge of handguns.

Although the tactical, live-fire range training is aggressive, it is conducted at the participant’s level of ability.

Each participant will be provided with an official NRA student packet and training manual.

An official, nationally recognized NRA certificate of completion is issued upon successful completion that can be used for applying for a Florida concealed carry license.

There is no other training of this caliber taught anywhere locally.

We do not mind if you shop around. Please do. But, keep in mind if you want incomparable handgun training, come back to us. There is no substitute for official NRA firearms training.

The NRA set the standard that others attempt to imitate.

Florida – Hardening The Soft Target, Not So Much

Repeatedly, it is demonstrated that it is the on scene, immediate responder that either mitigates the assault or totally thwarts the attack.

On May 5th, an article was posted here regarding the 2019 Florida Legislature’s failure to allow private schools and places of worship, that have a licensed school campus on their property, to arm themselves or hire private armed security to protect their lives and the lives of those who attend school or other activities on their property.

On May 7th an article was published on TownHall.com, by John R. Lott, Jr., titled: Armed Guards at Houses of Worship Is Not Enough addressing the very subject of hardening the soft targets (places of worship and schools) against an armed assailant.

Against all rational thinking the 2019 Florida Legislature failed the citizens of Florida. While broadening the protection of public school students, allowing teachers to be trained and armed, the Florida Legislature left both those students who attend private schools and young people and adults alike, who attend school or worship services on property owned by faith based organizations and shared with a school campus, to the wolves.

Under current Florida law, private school campuses remain gun free zones. That means gun free zones at ALL times, even when classes are NOT in session, i.e., Saturdays, Sundays, summer break.

Against all rational thinking the 2019 Florida Legislature failed the citizens of Florida. While broadening the protection of public school students, allowing teachers to be trained and armed, the Florida Legislature left both those students who attend private schools and young people and adults alike, who attend school or worship services on property owned by faith based organizations and shared with a school campus, to the wolves.

Yesterday, Tuesday, May 7th another school shooting occurred. This time in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. 8 students were shot, with one being killed. It was not a school guardian or a law enforcement school resource officer that stopped the attack. Rather, it was a fellow, unarmed student, on scene who tackled one of the assailants curtailing the assault.

It has been repeatedly demonstrated that it is the on scene, immediate responder that either mitigates the assault or totally thwarts the attack. Law enforcement only arrives after the shots have been fired and wounded and lifeless bodies are strewn on the ground.

The Florida Legislature needs to be made to know that the lives of those who attend private schools and places of worship are just as valuable as those who work in and attend public schools.
