“There is no elegant way to protect the sheep from hungry wolves.”
Thank you for visiting this site to learn about our Guardian training program.
We want to express sincere appreciation for all those who have contacted us regarding this sensitive issue. We have intentionally avoided promoting this training program out of respected for the Sutherland Springs, Texas incident. Now that the dust has begun to settle, it is time to face reality. We are no longer safe in the places we worship. If you feel we can be of service to you and your congregation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
It is understood that the method of handling violent incidents in your place of worship is both a difficult decision and a heavy responsibility.
It is further understood, that there may be several, perhaps many, members of your congregation who currently possess a Florida concealed carry license.
With that said, it should be recognized that Florida has some of the most lenient concealed carry license training requirements in the nation. It should be further recognized that a Florida concealed carry weapons license only permits a person to carry a deadly weapon in public.
The mere possession of a Florida concealed carry license does not qualify one to carry a deadly weapon in public, a weapon capable of taking someone’s life, either intentionally or unintentionally.
When evaluating the training members of your congregation received to obtain their concealed carry license, you might consider if their training document can withstand scrutiny in a court of law. Only official NRA firearms training is nationally recognized in all 50 states and internationally. Official NRA firearms training is the standard by which all others are based. If the certificate of training does not state “National Rifle Association” with a serial numbered bar code, the training was not official NRA.
Who are we and what makes our training different?
We have literally trained over a thousand Polk County residents in the safe ownership, handling, shooting and carrying of their firearm in public.
Our firearms training is more than the run-of-the-mill concealed carry class conducted elsewhere. We conduct official NRA, real firearms training. We are not a certificate mill. Students of our training earn their certificates. All our firearms training exceed the State of Florida’s training requirement for concealed carry weapons license application.
It would be our honor to provide you, your pastoral staff or other members of your congregation in real-life, advanced, firearms (concealed carry weapons) training.
What distinguishes our training from the others? #1 It is official NRA training!
