As Concealed Carry has become both easier and much more common over the past two decades, this type of training has moved from Fantasy Camp status to something that just makes sense for a lot of people. The Two Person Armed Defense Class addresses practical approaches to team tactics for the everyday person.

Frequently maligned by firearms trainers as too small, inaccurate, and not powerful enough, they are the red-headed stepchildren of the firearms community. Nonetheless, these little guns represent a major segment of the firearms sales market. The
