    About This Course:

    We want to think our church is a place of refuge where we can safely grow a relationship with our God, family, and fellow congregation. Unfortunately, churches are quickly becoming one of the most targeted places for violence.

    Many churches have started safety or security teams, but they often lack the ability to give proper training and guidance to the team members. In too many instances the church board simply finds the person in the congregation who happens to be a police officer, tags them to develop a security plan, and then opens it up to volunteers. While this is certainly better than having nothing in place, this approach can leave many holes in a fully comprehensive security plan.

    Getting a full team together to offer training has issues. People have complicated schedules. Training facilities are limited. Training courses may offer some of the base skills, but they are not tailored to the church environment.

    While we offer full advisement, planning, and training packages to churches, we found many other instances where individual safety team members understand it is “up to them” to get the training required. This course will help individuals who have been tasked to serve their church in a security or safety team role to be better prepared. In addition, several topics will be discussed they can take back to their organizations to help implement a more comprehensive plan.

    Topics Covered:

    Situational Awareness before, during, and after the service

    De-escalation techniques for church environments

    Firearms and other weapons considerations

    Safeguarding the offering and financial contributions

    Protecting the children

    Medical issues, fires, weather events, and other safety emergencies

    Legal liability

    Equipment Required:

    Notepad and Pen

    Prerequisites:

    None

    Notes:

    This course is primarily aimed at individual safety team members but will help guide the basis for an overall church plan.

    This is a fast paced course with many topics covered

    Follow-on training is available to go deeper into each topic

    About This Course:

    The reality is most gunfights in the domestic United States will take place up close and personal.  The idea you will be shooting your adversary at 25 yards is usually a myth and a mindset which makes it easier for you to feel safe after going to the range and practicing your marksmanship aimed at static paper targets. Statistics show the majority of gunfights happen within 3 yards, and many within arms reach.  Some places will teach you to create distance from your adversary, but we teach if you find yourself in a deadly encounter to get close, interrupt their OODA loop, end the fight, and go home.

    This course will teach you how to fire your weapons without sights, quickly, in close, and with potential other obstacles in the way.

    Equipment Required:

    • Semi-Automatic Handgun

    • Holster (NO Serpa Holsters due to insurance regulations)

    • 3 Magazines

    • Magazine carry method for at least 1 spare magazine

    • Approximately 300 rounds of ammunition

    • Eye and Ear protection

    •  T-Shirt or Sweatshirt you don't mind destroying

    •  Please equip yourself as you would carrying during everyday life.  No battle belts, chest rigs, etc unless that is how you go the grocery store (police duty gear is acceptable)

    Prerequisites:

    Defensive Handgun Level 2, or equivalent training through us or at another recognized facility.  You must have above average weapon safety understandings and muzzle discipline.  Please contact us with any questions about these prerequisites.

    Notes:

    This course is available to those 18 and over. 

    This is a very advanced course, it isn't overly physical must you must have your brain engaged at all times.

    Cost:

    $195

    About This Course:

    Many people think they know how to operate a rifle and shoot accurately. For most, this has included taking their rifle to a range and shooting at paper targets until they could consistently hit a bull’s-eye. However, this is NOT fighting with your rifle. Can you rapidly deploy your rifle in a stressful situation, clear any malfunctions, and make successful hits all within 3 seconds?
    If you are new to the AR platform, or have only used it for target practice, this is a vital course. This a basic level course, but even more experienced weapon operators will gain additional experience in using the weapon for defensive situations.

    This course covers proper stance and grip, and covers topics such as point-of-aim versus point-of impact, various methods to sight your rifle, reloads, and weapon malfunctions. Discussion will include different optics, slings, and other rifle accessories.

    Required Equipment:

    Good quality magazine fed weapon (AR platform in 5.56/.223, 9mm, 6.8spc, etc.)

    Approximately 100 rounds of rifle ammunition

    Rifle Sling

    2 extra rifle magazines and a method to carry those magazines

    If there is something you do not have, inform us in advance and we can arrange for you to borrow.

    All participants should bring ear and eye protection and dress appropriately for the weather.

    We do have AR rifle’s available for rental including ammunition (Please Inquire for current prices).

    About This Course:

    The shotgun is one of the most misunderstood weapon systems, but also one of the most versatile. While many people have used a shotgun to hunt, or to shoot cans, proper utilization in a defensive situation is much different. Ammunition selection, how to change ammunition mid fight, strengths and limitations, extra shell placement, are all things that must be considered to get the most out of the weapon. We will cover various techniques for deploying the shotgun in different scenarios to allow the operator to get the most out of this tool. If you are considering having a shotgun as part of your home defense plan, or you are a patrol officer who wants to get better at its utilization, this is a vital course for you. Regardless of how many rounds you have fired at your local range or while hunting, you will learn how to use your shotgun in real world situations.

    Equipment Required:

    • Tactical shotgun, pump or automatic, gauge does not matter

    • Method to carry extra shells (Side saddle preferred… stock saddle, sling strap, belt pouch, etc are all fine).

    • 75 rounds of number 7 or 8 birdshot

    • 5 rounds of 00 buckshot

    • 5 rounds of slugs.

    • Ear and Eye protection

    If you do not have a weapon, you can use one of ours (simply pay for the ammunition).

    Prerequisites:

    Solid understanding of firearm safety

    You wake up to hear a noise at your door.  At 3 am it certainly isn’t the mailman.  As you are wiping the sleep from your eyes 2 guys kick the door in and enter your house with intentions that aren’t nice.  What do you do, what do you use, and what do expect from your family?

    You come in from work, and you notice something just isn’t right.  You know your family is inside, but they aren’t answering the phone and there is a strange car in the drive.  How do you enter the house, how do you move from room to room, how do you carry your weapon?

    You’re at home, and in the middle of the night you hear a noise outside.  You look at the window, and there is a person trying to break into your car.  How do you respond?

    All of these questions and MANY more will be explored in this course.  You will learn about rules of engagement (when to preemptively disengage & call the police when to call 911 and then engage.)  You will learn how to seek and desist.  You will learn how to use handguns, long guns (shotgun or rifle), sticks, knives, and improvised weapons in an enclosed space.  We will cover force of force, low light, and stress inoculation.

    Course Description:

    If you’ve taken our Defensive Handgun Level 1 and our Defensive Handgun Skills Builder courses, you qualify for this level 2 course.  Ready for a fast paced day to take your skills to the next level?

    Research and our own experience in our Force-on-Force classes show one of the most common injuries in a fight are injuries to the hands.  If you take one of your hands out of the fight, can you still properly operate your weapon?

    This course will take the skills you learned about drawing your weapon, reloading, and clearing malfunctions, and force you to do all these things with one hand out of play.  In addition, we will work on drawing from compromised positions and introduce you to the concepts of reactionary shooting (shooting through the draw without a sight picture).

    In addition, this course will combine Moving & Shooting skills, where you will learn how to effectively shoot while moving.

    Standing still in a gunfight will get you killed.  You are either pressing the attack, retreating, moving toward cover, or moving toward an objective.  Being able to manipulate your weapon one handed, weak handed, and while moving are vital to your success.  This course will make extensive use of footwork, weapon control, and shot placement while on the move.

    Equipment Required:

    • Semi-Automatic Handgun
    • Holster (NO Serpa Holsters due to insurance regulations)
    • 3 Magazines
    • Magazine carry method
    • Approximately 350 rounds of ammunition
    • Eye and Ear protection

    Prerequisites:

    Defensive Handgun Level 1.

    If you have attended a defensive handgun course at another facility where you are familiar with drawing from a holster and clearing all malfunctions you will be accepted.

    About this course:

    Red Dot optics/sights (RDS) have become prevalent on rifles and are now considered the standard for close quarter fighting rifles.  The same is projected for pistols as the technology continues to adapt and improve.  For shooters whose eyesight might not be perfect, red dots can offer several advantages.  However, using a red dot optic is not exactly the same as using traditional sights.  This course will give you the fundamentals necessary to properly transition to and deploy a RDS on your handgun. 

    For those who are considering making the switch, we will have rental handguns available to use.

    Topics Include:

    • Red Dot Sight (RDS) theory
    • Red dot types, features, and mounts
    • Holster considerations
    • Marksmanship and mechanics
    • Acquisition of the sight
    • Parallax and occluded optics
    • Use of back-up sights
    • Alternate aiming techniques

    Equipment Required:

    • Pistol with RDS (or arrangements to rent)
    • At least 2 magazines (additional magazines will decrease time spent reloading)
    • Holster (NO Serpa Holsters due to insurance regulations)
    • Approximately 400 rounds of ammunition
    • Eye and Ear protection

    Prerequisites:

    Defensive Handgun Level 1 or equivalent training at another certified training facility

    Open to ages 14 and over when attending with a parent.

    About This Course:

    Whether entering a room for a search, securing a room in your house, rescuing a hostage, or engaging an active shooter, the most dangerous risk involves the initial room entry. Entering a room where an unknown assailant is inside puts the good guy at a significant disadvantage in the event of an attack.

    While CQB and Fighting In Structures has a module on the techniques, true professionals will spend days focusing on this very specific portion of CQB. Once dynamic entry is better understood, the overall CQB techniques will flow much more smoothly.

    For those who have taken the Tactical Breaching course, this course will address what to do once the door is open.

    Tactical Breaching, Dynamic Entry, and CQB flows together to create a much better appreciation for the overall risks and methods of mitigating danger during a fighting in structure scenario.

    This course is equally applicable for law enforcement who may be entering a domestic disturbance, a civilian doing home invasion response, or anyone dealing with an active shooter situation.

    Topics Include:

    Foundation of Dynamic Entry

    Proper Speed of Dynamic Entry

    Fatal Funnels, Button Hooks, Driving Corners, and other vital techniques

    Human Factors related to Visual and Auditory Processing

    Shoot-No-Shoot Decisions and Dealing with Innocent Occupants

    Low Light Scenarios

    Equipment Required:

    Airsoft Equipment will be provided if you do not have your own

    Prerequisites:

    None, although Tactical Breaching and Fighting in Structures will help you better understand the full flow

    If you are new to the AR platform, or have only used it for target practice, this is a vital course. This a basic level course, but even more experienced weapon operators will gain additional experience in using the weapon for defensive situations.

    This course covers proper stance and grip, and covers topics such as point-of-aim versus point-of impact, various methods to sight your rifle, reloads, and weapon malfunctions. Discussion will include different optics, slings, and other rifle accessories.

    At the conclusion of the Indiana law session, the attorney will spend the final hour discussing the National Firearms Act (NFA), trusts, suppressors, short-barreled rifles, short-barreled shotguns, etc.  There will also be a reduced rate available to setup a NFA trust that evening if you desire.

    About This Course:

    Active Shooter Situations can happen anywhere. Schools, Malls or Nightclubs.

    Police will respond, but in the meantime how many deaths will occur? If your child, spouse, or loved one is in the path of gunfire, will you respond to stop the killing?

    Having the will to confront the shooter is one thing, but doing so in a way that you prevent innocent deaths, including your own takes a specific skill set. Knowing what to do when law enforcement does arrive is vital. The 540 degree principal, threshold evaluation, movement toward threat, and friendly link-up are just some of the skills you will learn in this training.

    We will start with an understanding of where these events might occur, how to respond, and end with force-on-force drills to let you practice each skill.

    If you are a CCW holder and routinely carry your weapon, this course is a "must attend" for you.

    If you are a first responder, this course will give you valuable insights in how to respond yourself if you are off-duty.

    Fully applicable for Civilians, Fire Fighters, LEO, and EMS.

    If you are someone who thinks it is as easy as just shooting the bad guy, you definitely need to come to this course.

    If you think you will always get shot by the police in this situation, you definitely need to come to this course.

    Equipment Required:

    No live fire ammunition required. All force-on-force equipment will be provided

    About This Course:

    We all have fear. To state that you are fearless would indicate you are out of touch with your own emotions. Fear is actually healthy, it helps us understand danger. When we can’t control it, and either ignore it or let it control us….fear becomes our enemy.

    This course will cover the following topics:

    • The Emotional Basis of Fear

    • How Words Can Impact

    • The Physical Aspects of Fear

    • Being Challenged versus Threatened

    • The Differences between Fear and Anxiety

    • Trusting Your Instincts

    • The 4 Methods to Control Fear

    You will leave this course with a greater understanding of your personal fears, where they derive their power, and how you can better control your response when facing those fears.

    This is an intense course with extreme introspective exercises. Expect to be challenged mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

    About This Course:

    We want to think our church is a place of refuge where we can safely grow a relationship with our God, family, and fellow congregation. Unfortunately, churches are quickly becoming one of the most targeted places for violence.

    Many churches have started safety or security teams, but they often lack the ability to give proper training and guidance to the team members. In too many instances the church board simply finds the person in the congregation who happens to be a police officer, tags them to develop a security plan, and then opens it up to volunteers. While this is certainly better than having nothing in place, this approach can leave many holes in a fully comprehensive security plan.

    Getting a full team together to offer training has issues. People have complicated schedules. Training facilities are limited. Training courses may offer some of the base skills, but they are not tailored to the church environment.

    While we offer full advisement, planning, and training packages to churches, we found many other instances where individual safety team members understand it is “up to them” to get the training required. This course will help individuals who have been tasked to serve their church in a security or safety team role to be better prepared. In addition, several topics will be discussed they can take back to their organizations to help implement a more comprehensive plan.

    Topics Covered:

    Situational Awareness before, during, and after the service

    De-escalation techniques for church environments

    Firearms and other weapons considerations

    Safeguarding the offering and financial contributions

    Protecting the children

    Medical issues, fires, weather events, and other safety emergencies

    Legal liability

    Equipment Required:

    Notepad and Pen

    Prerequisites:

    None

    Notes:

    This course is primarily aimed at individual safety team members but will help guide the basis for an overall church plan.

    This is a fast paced course with many topics covered

    Follow-on training is available to go deeper into each topic
