 A comprehensive course designed to include more basic gun handling and care information, ballistics, holster selection, etc., as well as detailed coverage of the legal ramifications of the use of lethal force in Arizona and how the legal system effects those who elect to exercise their right to self-defense. The course includes extensive coverage of statutory and common law as well as mental conditioning, mindset, judgmental shooting and how to avoid, if at all possible, the use of lethal force. This course is designed to impress, in the worst-case scenario, a potential jury. The course includes documentable live shooting and written exam qualifications which exceed current Arizona legal requirements and meet the requirements in place when Arizona required a specific curriculum. Exam and Shooting Qualification Scores can be provided to support your defense. Taught by seasoned firearms instructors including a Master level competitive shooter and an active trial attorney/judge pro tem.
