Gun Retention

If you use a gun to defend yourself, the last thing you want to happen is for it to be taken away and used against you. This is vital for law enforcement, since about 14% of officers killed in the line of duty are shot with their own gun. However, civilians must also know how to retain control of their gun, whether a concealed carry handgun or home defense rifle or shotgun.

While many firearm courses assume that presenting or firing a gun will instantly stop a threat, experience shows that there is a good chance you will end up grappling with your attacker. In fact, criminals often attack without warning, delivering a sudden sucker punch or taking you to the ground before you can deploy your weapon.

You do NOT need martial arts training for this course. The techniques are simple and effective, regardless of  the size or strength of the attacker.

Law Enforcement: Please note that you can be fully geared with duty or S.W.A.T. equipment and use little energy to retain your gun. These tactics are easily explained and defensible in court.

Equipment Needed:

  • Inert training gun (blue gun or airsoft)

  • Holster

  • Rifle or shotgun

  • Knee and elbow pads (optional) for ground fighting

  • Concealment shirt, vest, or other garment

  • Lunch and hydration each day
