"Training for tomorrow's fight"

It's a simple question. If, God forbid, you find yourself in a bad situation, would you rather have the tools and as much training as possible to defend yourself and your family; or are you comfortable to just wing it? In my world, hoping for the best is not a strategy.

The LMS Home Defense class was a turning point in my firearm education. It's one thing to be able to shoot at a target but effectively wielding your firearm in a lifelike situation when someone is shooting back is something altogether different. It's the difference maker when your life or the life of your loved one is in danger. My priorities in coming to LMS were to establish an effective home defense plan and to gain the skills necessary for carrying it out if ever the need should arise. The knowledge and practical experience that I have gained from this course are substantial and a crucial progress for me toward achieving these priorities.
