This is NOT a home grown course, but an advanced level self-defense course authored by, and conducted in accordance with, a national organization, the NRA.  We don’t ‘pop smoke’ or hose you down with a Super Soaker or a garden hose to induce stress, as some home grown ‘Beyond Concealed Carry’ classes do.  This course is taught is a safe manner with an NRA Certified RSO present.
