Polite Society Podcast - Active Shooter Interdiction
Whether it is an ISIS terror event, or a mentally ill, dysfunctional soul bent on killing innocent people before he dies, the fact remains that the likelihood of being caught up in an active shooter event is increasing. And, it is becoming crystal clear that the well-trained, well-armed citizen is the first line of defense against an active shooter.
New for 2016, the Firearms Academy will offer at least two courses over the next year, specifically geared for the possibility of defending against an active shooter in an urban environment.
The first day of this two-day program will involve honing shooting skills in order to increase your skills, and shooting drills the individual can use as a diagnostic tool to know their limitations.
The second day will involve shooting exercises designed to test skills necessary for active shooter interdiction, along with force on force training to prepare the armed citizen to be able to respond as effectively as possible if they ever have to face an armed assailant bent on shooting numerous victims.
The class will also address the legal issues involved in this type of a defensive handgun use.
