Carry with Confidence: Vehicle Defense Academy

Scenario-Based Situational Training

Vehicle defense firearm training

Being safe and confident with your firearm takes practice. That is why we have developed a series of one-on-one training sessions that build upon the skills learned in your marksmanship training. Students can practice essential firearm techniques and grow confidence and know-how to react in potentially threatening real-life situations by taking things outside the classroom and into our virtual simulator.

Vehicle Defense Training Overview

This 60-minute, hands-on, advanced training session focuses on learning how and when to react in a vehicle. Most of this session is spent practicing different life-like scenarios from a seated position. For example, students will learn how to safely draw a gun from a purse or other stored location and react in a potentially threatening real-world situation. Vehicle defense is unlike any other training course, so practice is vital to building confidence.

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

Training Description and Objectives

This one-on-one training session is specially formatted so students can build on previously gained skills by engaging in virtual scenarios aimed at vehicle defense. This course is built upon the foundation of your previous training and the introduction, home, personal protection, and public place courses. The primary focus is mitigating potentially dangerous situations and pulling a gun from a seated position. Course objectives are as follows:

  • To learn the skills to mitigate potentially dangerous situations in vehicles
  • To build confidence through the practice of vehicle defense shoot/don't-shoot scenarios
  • To practice drawing from a seated position
  • To focus on developing valuable muscle memory
  • Upon completing this advanced course, students should have understood how to pull a gun from a seated position, furthered their marksmanship skills, and gotten more real-world practice to develop muscle memory. Most importantly, students should walk away with an understanding of how to identify potentially dangerous situations in a vehicle and how to de-escalate them or confidently draw their firearms.
