5 Common Gun Control Myths
If you've ever talked about guns or concealed carry with a group of people, you've probably encountered that one person who tried to convince everyone that guns are evil and do more harm than good. Typically, it's someone who doesn't own a gun, has never shot a gun, and knows next to nothing about guns outside of what they've seen in movies and TV shows. The myths they've come to believe are no...

You never know when you'll have to defend yourself
A lot of people are carrying concealed these days. But many don't carry all the time. One thing you'll hear many of these gun owners say is "Oh, I really don't have to carry when I'm going to the grocery store or safe places like that. I only carry when I'm going to be in an unfamiliar place." Here are results from a survey we did on concealed carry. When ask how often they carry, respondents s...

Criminals think of themselves as "good people"

To follow up on this idea, here's another somewhat startling observation: many criminals actually view themselves as good people despite their bad actions. Here's anothe...

Is deadly force legal if you HATE your attacker?
When we talk about using deadly force legally, we generally define it like this: Deadly force is justified only to prevent the imminent danger of death or great bodily harm.

But what if in addition to fear you al...

Your Tactical Training Scenario - Three Difficult Disarms

Protect Your Constitutional Rights and America's Sovereignty


If you are visiting this website then it's a strong bet that you have an interest in your self defense and the protection of your property. These are fundamental rights that were understood by our Founding Fathers which, among many others, they intended to protect. But these fundamental rights of life, liberty and sovereignty are under attack. They could be lost forever, and it's your fault. Yes, your fault - if you don't know our history, if you are apathetic about our governance, if you don't get involved.

Don't think that it is not up to you. It is, and there are a few simple things that you can do -should do -must do to secure your rights and America's sovereignty. First, read the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Founding Fathers wrote these documents for us -"We the People". These documents were written in simple, straightforward language easy to read and understand. Two of the biggest problems with our government today are its failure to keep things simple and our failure to actually read what is written about it. Second, register to vote and then fully implement that power by getting out and actually voting. Don't be apathetic. Be active in protecting your rights. Third, join the NRA. This grass roots organization is widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of your Second Amendment rights.
