We spend a lot of our time in or around our vehicles. Driving on vacation, to or from work, running errands, just about everything we do involves a vehicle of some sort. Have you thought about how you would handle a defensive situation while in your vehicle? A carjacker? A mob of protesters turned violent? Do you play the ‘what if’ game when you are at a light or just driving? Do you have a planned response to various threats?


We will cover topics such as the readiness mindset, what gear you should have in your car, what you should take with you, how to use your car as a sanctuary, how to leave it if required, and more.


With a mix of dry work with dummy guns and live fire work, this class will get you to think about your vehicle in a new way. We will discuss the physics behind using a vehicle to escape an encounter, how to shield yourself, how to deploy your firearm from anywhere in your vehicle, and how to exit your vehicle in a safe but rapid manner.
