Personal Protection Strategies and the "Other Tools" of Self-Defense

Presenter - Larry Pope

Many confrontations are not life threatening and understanding that a firearm is a “tool of last resort” makes it necessary to consider other tools available. Learn strategies to disengage from an attacker using modern personal protection technology (pepper spray, TASER CEW, personal alarms, etc.) as part of a personal safety plan. Discuss the psychology of criminals and steps we can take to devalue ourselves as targets. Learn the value of intuition and overcoming functional fixedness - a cognitive bias that limits the use of an item solely for its intended purpose.  *We will demonstrate the function of various devices using inert trainers and demo models.  

* Scheduled time coming soon

“I Will Never Carry A Gun Without Carrying This.”
