In a protection assignment, firearms would only be used as a last resort. However, if deployed, the protection specialist must respond quickly and precisely to prevent injury to the Protectee. This course builds upon existing firearms skills and helps re-orient the student’s mindset; to break away from traditional self-defense concepts and fire from unusual shooting positions, while controlling another person who may exhibit a variety of responses under fire.
