When A Gun Is Not An Option

This course is tailored to give students an introduction to lawful use of force, understanding the types of people we encounter and how to appropriately interact with them, and familiarization with tools available to law-abiding citizens that fill a gap between no force and lethal force.

When A Gun Is Not An Option is a fun, educational, and interactive seminar-based class where students will have the ability to learn, discuss, watch demonstrations, and have hands on time with intermediate force tools.
