Active Shooter Seminar (FREE)

February 18, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Fight back! Whenever you are offered

Shooter School has a few words of advice you may want to pay attention too: Here’s a brief rundown on what you should do in case of an active shooter(s) event.

1. At the first inkling, get in motion! Don’t hesitate, move your ass! Don’t freeze and stay in one place. Active shooters are weakest and least organized at the very beginning, as their plan is just starting to unfold. That is the time to make your move, whatever form that takes. As an active shooter consolidate their control, your options will rapidly dry-up!

2. Be aware of all exits, not just the door you came in through. Know how you are going to get to an exit, and out of there, quickly.

3. A “lock-down, “shelter in place”, is herding people into coffins! Pay no attention to “orders” to “shelter in place,” nor to “remain calm and stay where you are.” That is where your body will be found! Get out any way you can and as quickly as you can, and don’t worry about who likes the idea!

4. “Rescue,” in whatever form it takes, is probably hours away! Most hostages will never live long enough for it to matter! Don’t count on being “rescued.” In fact, you have likely already been “written off.” Be prepared to fight for your life!

5. Guns are vastly more effective than staplers and fire extinguishers! Be truly prepared. Go armed. “Gun-free zones” are the exclusive province of naive fools. Stay out of them or go armed regardless!

6. Get prepared, now! Guns in skillful hands will always find a way to win. You have to train people, if you think you will react properly in a high stress event (gunfight) you won’t unless you prepare! Your sympathetic nervous system will kick in and you will not be able to process the info at hand, and you will lock up! By contrast, your shiny new pistol and rifle will contribute little to your continued good health when you’ve had scant competent training in their effective use. Just as expensive golf clubs are no guarantee of a good-scoring game, expensive weapons by themselves, will not guarantee personal victory.

You don’t need a $3000 weapon! You need a $700 weapon and $2300 of training!! Your weapons don’t have personalities. They don’t love you. And they won’t love their next owners any more than they loved you!

7. In addition to guns and ammunition, always carry car keys, cash, blades, credit cards, cell phone, and wear shoes in which you can walk for significant distances. You may have to!
