Home Defense

About This Course

This course will inform the concerned citizen on methods of protecting the home front. Students will receive classroom instruction and will engage in shoot/no-shoot, force-on-force realistic scenarios based on actual events that have occurred, and where their decision-making process will be explored and tested. This is not a basic firearms course, but rather provides training for the time when use of a firearm becomes the only option.
