"Anthony quickly identifies areas for improvement and provides real time feedback. I saw immediate results based on his instruction.

HOW “JUST DEFENSE” IS DIFFERENT
FIREARM SAFETY AND TRAINING BY AN ATTORNEY
Just Defense is about ensuring you have a “just defense.” The legal principles of using force are brought together with the practical realities of defending yourself with a firearm.
Classroom training focuses on what you need to know about self-defense, both practically and legally so that you can model your firearms and other self-defense training at the range (or dojo) to reflect those realities.
Range training develops firearms safety and skills as you would use the firearm on the street in a lethal force encounter where you must defend yourself.

"You and Ray did an excellent job. Thank you for making the time to create and present the information, furnishing the legal citations, taking questions throughout the class, providing your contact information for follow up and being 2 cool guys.

Yesterday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court granted allowance (which means they’ve agreed to hear the merits) on a case with implications for concealed carriers. The issue (PDF), as stated by the Court, is as follows: Whether the Superior Court’s bright line rule holding that possession of a concealed firearm in public is sufficient to create reasonable suspicion is a matter of...
Generally, lethal force is not justified against a non-lethal force. It’s the old adage “Arms may repeal arms. Force may repel force.” But like many replies you'll hear from a lawyer, "it depends." Pepper spray is billed as less-than-lethal, but that doesn't mean it cannot be used in conjunction with lethal force. Importantly for concealed carriers, it's potential for incapacitating...
