The “Defenders Series” is 2 1/2 days of excellent defensive firearm training developed to help prepare and train the anyone in safe, effective and responsible use of realistic, defensive firearms use that fits the speeds of crime and attacks in America, the full Defenders Series. It is a 20 hour training experience filled with current laws and how these apply to you, use of force considerations, mental and emotional and legal preparedness for dangerous situations, defense of self, others and our homes, and hands-on firearms training using realistic defensive tactics and techniques.

This highly-acclaimed training also addresses many other areas, to include how to avoid a dangerous situation, what to do in the immediate aftermath of a defensive firearms use, tactics, best handgun, gear, and caliber selections for the defensive of life, long-term legal considerations, “Letter of the Law” vs. “Spirit of the Law”, emotional survival, all with extensive range time learning and honing realistic, defensive handgun handling and skills to survive the fight for life itself when under high stress. The “Defenders Series” meets and far exceeds all requirements for a Colorado Concealed Handgun permit (CCW) and helps any concealed permit holder to expertly increase their skills with a handgun for the defense of life.
