Gun disarming is a self-defense skill that once developed can literally save your life if you are ever in the unfortunate situation wherein your life literally depends on how you respond to an attacker armed with a firearm. Your learned ability to effectively disarm that threat may sound counterintuitive but if you have no means of escape, you have no-weapon and it is unavoidable, then the disarming tactics you learn could keep you alive and save the lives of others around you! Applicants who complete this module will receive two (4) hours of POST training credit.
