We all spend a majority 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? 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?


With a mix of theory, dummy guns, and live fire work, this class will get you to think about defensive driving 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 or how to fight if an attacker enters your vehicle.


We will also have live examples of how bullets interact with vehicle panels, glass, and more. Yes! You will be able to shoot at the car!
