Do you have a basic understanding of your firearm? Have you done the right thing by attending an NRA basic handgun class? GREAT!! Now is the time to learn what is going to happen if you’re faced with a deadly force encounter. Do you know there are mental and physical responses that your mind and body will automatically respond to under danger? Do you know what will happen to you legally even if you are 100% in the right?

We are offering a special four-hour class covering “The Legal use of Force” and “Violent Encounters and their aftermath”. Both classes are packed full of information concerning your legal responsibilities of using a firearm in self-defense and what can happen if you do. Learning what will happen to you mentally and physically during a violent encounter are extremely important. This class gives you the proper information on how you can become a responsibly armed citizen ready to defend yourself and your family. Curriculum is from the USCCA and taught by Chris of CPDefense, a USCCA Certified instructor with 30 combined years of law enforcement, military and private firearms instruction experience . Class size is limited for this very informative class.
