Our Active Shooter Training is a 15-hour intense, tactical firearms training course. No prior firearms training is required to participate in this training. We take the individual participant from basic handgun training to advanced tactical.

A nationally recognized official NRA firearms certificate of training will be issued upon successful completion of the course. This training fulfills and exceeds the State of Florida’s training requirement for applying for a Florida concealed carry weapons license. Upon successful completion, no further training will be required to apply for a Florida concealed carry weapons licence. Florida concealed carry licenses are recognized in 36 other states.

We are currently accepting registrations for our fall classes.

Church Guardian Training – Fall 2019

“. . . we prayed to our God and posted a guard . . .”

church art 06b

In January 2018, In-Gauge of Polk County, of Winter Haven, Florida initiated its Church Guardian Training program.

In-Gauge of Polk County’s Church Guardian Training program is a 15-hour firearm training program for faith based organizations.  The Guardian training specifically focuses on situational awareness, plans of action and the use of a firearm in crowded, close-quarter conditions. Our Guardian Training trains the participant how to assess and recognize a potential threat, mitigate a potential threat before it becomes an actual threat, engage and survive an actual threat while minimizing the threat to others.

Our Guardian training is composed of two distinct classes:

  • Phase One – Basic handgun/concealed carry qualification training (5 hours)
    • Classroom:   4 hours
    • Live-fire range training:   1 hour
  • Phase Two – Advanced concealed carry training  (10 hours)
    • Classroom:   5 hours
    • Live-fire range training:   5 hours 

During the Phase Two live-fire range session, each participant is expected to fire a minimum of 250 rounds, while performing a series of progressive, live-fire drills, using a defensive caliber handgun. Each participant will learn and demonstrate:

  • the correct method of drawing from a concealment holster
  • the use of cover and concealment
  • the correct and safe method of moving between cover and concealment, while actively engaging and armed assailant
  • the correct procedure for engaging multiple assailants
  • the correct procedure for loading, shooting and reloading while engaging an armed assailant or assailants
  • the correct procedure for clearing firearm malfunctions while engaging an armed assailant

In May of 2019 we added Stop The Bleed – emergency blood loss control and tourniquet training to our Guardian Training Program. This training is now part of our Guardian Training Program and will be provided to all participants.

A nationally recognized, official NRA certificate of training will be issued upon successful completion of the course.   Training exceeds requirements for Florida’s concealed carry weapons license application.

Training will be ongoing throughout the year.  Training can be taken as an individual or a group.  Convenient lodging is available for out-of-town participants.

Pre-registration is required.  Group discounts are available.  Call or email for pricing information.

For complete training information, visit In-Gauge of Polk County’s webpage at:  Church Guardian Training  or send an email inquiry to:  info.ingauge@gmail.com 

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd explains the importance of having trained guardians on location when the wolf attacks and before law enforcement arrives  . . . . 

Something to consider . . .

In-Gauge of Polk County is one of a very few entities that provides official NRA firearms training and the only organization in Central Florida that conducts official NRA, advanced firearms training.

If you or any member of your congregation takes firearms training that does not provide an official NRA certificate of training, displaying the official NRA name and emblem, your training will likely not be recognized outside the state of Florida and not be recognized by liability insurance carriers.

Firearms training classes (concealed carry classes) conducted by retired law enforcement officers or instructors claiming to certified NRA instructors that do not issue official NRA certificates of training, are NOT official NRA firearms training classes.

Before enrolling in any concealed carry class or advanced firearms tactical training course, ask if you be receiving an official NRA certificate of training upon completion. Not merely receiving a training certificate designed by the instructor or a letter stating you completed a class.
