Armed Citizen Surviving an Active Shooter

March 31 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

Crotalus Defensive Services Salisbury Active Shooter Response and Maryland Active Shooter Response


Active violence and specifically active shooter events are on the rise. You recognize the potential danger of crime and armed crime to yourself and your loved ones which is why you carry a weapon with you. But a general concealed carry or armed self-defense course does not prepare you for the events and chaos of an active violence event. Having the right tools and knowledge to make the most of that advantage is essential though, and this course is designed to provide just that.

Through a combination of in-class instruction and practical scenario training, this course will help you make the right choices that provide the best route to survival if you are caught in an active shooter situation.

Conducted by highly experienced, certified instructors, this course focuses on situation assessment, so you can quickly identify threats and take action to avoid them where possible. If this is not possible, you will learn proven strategies and techniques for using your weapon to defend yourself and those around you when necessary.

To be clear this class does not advocate hunting someone engaged in domestic terrorism; that’s law enforcement’s duty and responsibility. This course is not a “run, hide, fight” course either. This course is designed to give you the training necessary to safely evacuate yourself and those with you from an active violence situation without walking into incoming fire. In the event that you cannot evacuate this course is designed to teach immediate action capabilities so that you can defend yourself from the assailant.

Essential skills this course will teach you include active violence statistics, motivations, actions and law enforcement response, along with practical approaches to the situation including room movement, threshold evaluations, room entry, dealing with an encounter with the shooter and dealing with responding law enforcement on site.

This course requires participants to be legal firearm carriers and have experience of firearm use. Interested in an unarmed, surviving an active shooter course? Check out our AVERT program from HSI.
