What is properly trained?

Proper training is reality based training that integrates firearm fundamentals, individual tactics, team tactics, tactical medical, and tactical communications delivered on-range, on-site, and on-line via a comprehensive training plan which coordinates daily, weekly, monthly, and annual tasks, activities, and events.

The Gap

Active defense is the ability to stop a violent threat, minimize casualties and damage, and secure the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement. This is accomplished by properly training select staff and congregants who are thoroughly vetted and willing to form an armed security force.

Make sure to read our Substack “N4:17“. We post daily on topics that help illuminate the debate for and against the use of force in defense of Church and community.
