Draw To First Shot

Although being the first to get a shot off doesn’t guarantee a victory, it can give enough of an advantage to save your life or those you love. In this block of instruction we will cover the importance of a fast draw, methods for increasing draw efficiency, gear placement for advantageous concealment and access; and attire considerations.

Concealed Carbine Diagnostics

During this 3 hours we will focus on the “when, why, where, and how” to conceal a carbine. This includes but is not limited to various methods of concealment, how to make this happen with different styles of weapon systems, caliber choices, rapid employment considerations, and examples of when a concealed carbine has been used successfully for self defense. Expect to find out what gear works best for you, how quickly you can employ your weapon, and have a strategy to carry a carbine with you on a daily basis.

Intro to Vehicle Defense

Intro to Vehicle Defense covers the essential skills to protect ourselves using vehicles as cover and concealment. We have a high likelihood of being assaulted near vehicles, and we explore best practices to maximize our protection while shooting through and around vehicles. We will cover common vehicle myths, and students will be equipped with a gameplan to offer the highest chance of success in a vehicle gunfight.
