The criminal threat(s) have a plan of action...do you?

What: Home Defense Seminar

During the day of Friday April 6th, two men using fake police badges invaded a home in Lake Oswego while there were people inside. This could happen to your family too!

1 out 5 home experience some from of burglary or attempted break in. Bad things sometimes happen to good people. The number of home invasions has greatly increased over the last few years. There are several contributing factors but one of the things we teach is WHY? matter very little compared to what to do about it. On Saturday November 17th we will be offering our 4 hour Home Invasion Seminar. The seminar is from noon to 4pm so you can still sleep in and you can still plan an evening out.

Gun owners. Is your plan to shoot first and ask questions later? Your gun is only effective if it's in your hand, loaded, a round chambered, safety off and pointed at the threat. Do you have the will to pull the trigger? Do you know how to clear a room and use choke points?
