Learn more about a new course Rob Pincus is teaching: Two-Person Armed Defense. As more people are carrying concealed, this type of instruction is no longer just for armed professionals. The class features practical approaches to team tactics for the average citizen.____________________________________________________________________________________________________ This week, I m running a Two Person Armed Defense class at Reno Guns & Range in Nevada. It has been about a year since we launched the program, which is a combination of various concepts from Team Tactics programs designed for SWAT, Military, Executive Protection or other “Armed Professional” adapted to fit the context of two family members, friends, co-workers (including police and security personnel) or others who are frequently both together and armed.
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. 20 years ago, it was much less likely that you would have multiple people in the same place carrying guns for personal defense. If nothing else, the dramatic growth in women carrying guns for their own protection and not just relying on the men in their lives to carry the guns means that more and more couples should think about how they can coordinate their actions in an emergency to be as safe as possible, instead of simply responding as two individuals. The Three C’s of team operations form the foundation of the course: Coordination, Communication & Cooperation.
The Two Person Armed Defense Class addresses practical approaches to team tactics for the everyday person.
If you spend time with other armed people, as most in the gun community do, consider thinking about how you could work together to be safer. If you do seek out training, make sure it is applicable to the context of civilian defense in a typical defensive situation!
