Our Critical Defensive Handgun course will help you to develop the foundational skills you need to defend yourself, however, your training shouldn’t end there. The next step is the APPLICATION of those skills. That is where Safety Solutions Academy’s Advanced Critical Defensive Handgun Course fits in.
Advanced Critical Defensive Handgun will provide you with the opportunity to use the skills you learned in CDH from a variety of circumstances where you may need to defend yourself. You will shoot from standing, kneeling, sitting and from the ground as well as from your vehicle. In addition, you will have the opportunity to deal with both simple and complex malfunctions with both hands, your primary hand only and even your weak hand. You will also deal with other non traditional shooting problems like the need for extreme precision and the need to make hits beyond traditional handgun ranges.
Advanced Critical Defensive Handgun is all about extending the range of circumstances that you can defend yourself or your loved ones from a violent attack with a handgun. This course isn’t for everyone. It can be mentally taxing and physically demanding as we will spend a lot of time moving between standing and positioned on the ground. ACDH also has the prerequisite of attendance at a Safety Solutions Academy Critical Defensive Handgun Course as the Advanced course builds directly on the concepts and principles of the CDH course.
Your vehicle is a highly valuable, highly mobile asset and as a result it can be a target for theft. Unfortunately, for the untrained thief the easiest time to steal it is when the keys are easily available. This is also unfortunate for you as it means you may be caught in the middle between the desperate criminal and what they want.
Critical Vehicle Concealed Carry addresses a wide variety of skill applications from how to use vehicle systems to avoid threats in the first place, concerns of shooting and moving around vehicles, drawing and firing your gun from inside the vehicle and in some courses shooting through vehicle glass to understand how it can effect your ability to get hits on the threat.
In order to protect yourself in and around your vehicle efficiently you need to understand how to apply your defensive handgun skills to a complex environment. The area around and inside your vehicle presents special challenges that you need to be aware of and understand how to deal with in order to deploy your handgun and stop the threat without putting yourself and those that you love in additional danger.
