Carrie is a fan of Melody Lauer, and her 2-day course, Contextual Handgun: The Armed Parent/Guardian, $450. A fast-paced course designed around the thought, “What if my children are with me when I get into a shooting?” 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: http://citizensdefenseresearch.com/
