Critical Defensive Handgun

Saturday, May 14, 2016 @ 8:30 am - Sunday, May 15, 2016 @ 4:30 pm EDT

- $99
Glock 43


This will be a special Critical Defensive Handgun Course where Safety Solutions Academy will be participating in a filming project.  There will be a video crew on the range for the duration of Saturday’s training.  Due to the nature of filming you can expect there to be occasional delays as there is the possibility of some minor repetition.  All students attending this course will be required to sign a release allowing the video footage shot to be used in various projects.  In addition, you will need to wear clothing with out branding.  For instance, if you wear your favorite GLOCK (insert any brand here) t-shirt we will need to have you cover up or remove the image in some way.

Keep in mind that the instruction will be the same high quality instruction you would normally expect from Safety Solutions Academy.  The significant reduction in price is designed to show appreciation for your patience should we run into filming complications or delays.



SSA’S Critical Defensive Handgun Course provides you with an opportunity to gain understanding and experience with the most important defensive handgun skills. Critical Defensive Handgun is specifically designed to target the skills your life will depend on when you find yourself in a life threatening violent encounter.
