Reality and Responsibility for the Armed Citizen:
Concealed Weapon Training for Experienced Shooters
You have been shooting for years, you have been, or have been thinking of carrying for a while now, perhaps you served in the military, but as a civilian you want to be able to legally and effectively defend yourself and your family. You may already have your Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearms License, but you want to further prepare yourself to use your gun in self-defense. Does this describe you? If yes, read on, if you are a novice, please consider taking Defensive Handgun Fundamentals beforehand.
This is a fast paced course for the armed citizen who is serious about using a gun for self-defense. THIS IS NOT A BARE MINIMUM STANDARDS "CWP" CLASS. You will spend several quality hours with a highly skilled professional teacher in order to ensure you are mentally and physically prepared for violent encounter, and understand the gravity and responsiblity of using a gun to fight for your life. We will briefly review, but assume that you already have mastered the fundamentals of stance, grip, aim, trigger manipulation, and safe handling of a firearm.
There are 3 primary focuses of the class: Mindset, Rules of Engagement, and Live Fire Stress Shoot.
Mindset: Mental alertness, sheepdog moral code, real gunfight case studies, myth-busting, shooting under stress, introducing technique geared towards pre-frontal cortex shutdown, impaired fine motor function, tachycardia, tachypsychia, auditory exclusion, tunnel vision, out of body experience, and cognitive dissonance common to real life traumatic events.
Rules of Engagement: Drawn from Massad Ayoob's teachings on armed citizens use of lethal force, students will learn and be able to clearly articulate, using a foolproof checklist of criteria, exactly when it is justifyable to exercise lethal force in self defense. Can you answer a simple question? When are you allowed to shoot someone? If you cannot clearly answer that question, you are setting yourself up for legal disaster if you ever fire in self-defense!
Live Fire Stress Shoot: The only shootings that happen under calm, deliberate conditions are called murder. Real defensive shootings happen during heated confrontations, high stress violent encounters at contact distances that involve moving opponents, hand to hand combat, weapons malfunctions, poor lighting, injuries, car crashes, bystanders, and other variables that you don't ever find on the "square range". Together we will run drills that get your heart rate up and illustrate how important it is to have solid time tested gunfighting technique, and acclimation to stress, and not simply "gun safety". When your life is on the line, prevailing in the fight IS gun safety.
All guns and equipment can be provided at no additional charge. Both semi-automatic service pistols and double action revolvers are welcome. Students will need a quality servicable firearm, and 100 rounds of quality practice ammunition. Range fee IS NOT included. Either the range, or we will have ammunition available for purchase at market price, please call ahead to reserve.
Total instruction time is 4 hours. Successful completion does certify the graduate to apply for a Florida Concealed Weapons License.
