Our concealed carry course features the USCCA Concealed Carry and Home Defense curriculum, and also includes an enhanced section on the Michigan CPL Law and the Self Defense Act of 2006. Additionally, we have developed the most robust live fire course in the state for concealed carry, which not only far exceeds the requirements by the state of Michigan, but enhances the skills of students at all levels (beginner to advanced).
This course analyzes data gathered from 48 mass shootings that have occurred since Columbine to determine what can be learned from these tragedies, including whether a reduction in magazine capacity or the banning of any class of firearm, would have changed the outcome.
The course also looks at whether “gun-free” zones impacted the planning of these mass murderers, whether victim response at any mass shooting has made a difference, and whether “universal background checks” or other proposals by gun control advocates stand a chance of stemming the current trajectory of these shootings. The course concludes with a comprehensive plan designed to eliminate the scourge of these shooters once and for all.
This course focuses on providing the foundation of knowledge needed to assess and stabilize a victim while waiting for paramedics to arrive.
