    Situational Control



    You have heard it said that awareness is the most critical skill to have, and that it true. This class will dive in to how to be aware and what to look for once you see a person that you think might be a problem.

    The goal of everyone that carries a gun should be to never have to use it and we intend to make you more aware and give you tools, such a verbal skills and body language skills, to hopefully get you to the point where you never have to use a gun.

    For the people who choose not to carry a gun or only carry occasionally, this is the most important class they can come to, because the only gunfight you win is the one you’re not in.

    This class consist of being able to gain control of an approaching person and trying to determine their intent by judging their actions and knowing what to look for.



    • Awareness skills
    • Verbalization skills
    • Profanity, should I use it or not?
    • Managing unknown intent with strangers
    • How to avoid task fixation
    • How to maintain distance
    • How to gain visual plane
    • Recognizing pre-assault indicator cues
    • Parking lot safety
    • Vehicle safety
    • Children management, entering and exiting a vehicle
    • Non-threatening hand gestures
    • Live interaction

    This class should be a must have when applying for a CC license.
    Not a requirement, but a class one should have to go beyond the requirement for a CC.
    The concealed weapon is not a talisman, and most carry concealed where it's not easily deployed, never practicing from that position to be effective.
    This class to make one aware is good. Think about it. Have you thought about walking down the street with the family and a threat came up? What would you do?

    One of my best friends takes his entire family to the range and practices what to do when they are on vacation and walking as a group. Dad retired Army Drill Sergeant, son Army Infantry vet with multiple tours in the sand box.
    If one recognizes a threat, they have a code word they use to set the up who does what/when if the SHTF. Armed and unarmed scenarios. Grandkids involved as well.

    Having a plan is always good, but ... K.I.S.S.

    They have a couple of training scenarios they work on. Even if sitting inside a restaurant.
    The important thing is they practice it, not just talk about it.
    Some call him paranoid, but I call it being prepared.
