Do you have your permit but don't carry your gun? Most Ohio permit holders leave their guns at home because they lack the confidence to carry.

The plastic won't save you!

This course will guide you through the steps to properly, safely and efficiently draw your firearm, resolve common weapon malfunctions and engage multiple targets.

countering the mass shooter threat

"If you fail to plan, then you are planning to fail." - Benjamin Franklin  

Whether at school, at work, at worship or at play, the reality of today's criminal-infested, Godless culture is that we could all fall victim to being involved in an active shooter event - especially when in "gun-free" zones.  Whether or not we survive heavily rests on how prepared we are when faced with such evil.

Our Countering the Mass Shooter Threat seminar is just what your school, your place of worship and your place of employment needs in order to prepare you for this type of worst case scenario.
