The Armed Parent/Guardian
hosted by Crossroads Shooting Sports
A fast-paced course designed around the thought, “What if my children are with me when I get into a shooting?” Contextual Handgun: The Armed Parent/Guardian discusses with students the hard/soft skills necessary to solve the commonly observed shooting problems associated with fighting with our children present. Are some of the most commonly held best practices for if we are attacked when we are alone actually going to put our loved ones at risk when they are present? Students will be shown WHY the context we find ourselves in as a parent can change our tactics. This skill-intensive two-day course covers application of practical handgun skills in a family environment. Topics include, but are not limited to; types of attacks, avoidance skills, handgun terminal ballistics and the importance of accuracy, one-handed access/shooting skills, shooting past/around no-shoots, clearing family members from lines of fire, best practices for dealing with a close-range assault while loading/unloading children from the vehicle, malfunction clearances and more with the end result being students better capable of delivering fast, accurate, fight-ending fire on demand.
The Armed Parent/Guardian Seminar ($100 – stand alone (NO SHOOTING OR GEAR REQUIRED)) is a four-hour seminar discussing the types of attacks parents and children are likely to face, situational awareness, gear, mindset, post-incident, legal issues and non-firearm solutions to common issues while out and about with your children while remaining vigilant and minimizing your appeal as a potential victim.
