Carry with Confidence: Public Places Academy

Scenario-Based Situational Training

Public place firearm training

Our objectives at EVR are to help gun owners be safe, confident, and educated. Our Carry with Confidence series is intended to build upon the marksmanship training previously learned. Practicing threat mitigation in realistic virtual scenarios is a safe and judgment-free way to develop real-world personal protection skills.

This class is taught in a safe, judgment-free atmosphere to promote learning and build confidence.
