GSL Defense Training’s
National Rifle Association Personal Protection in the Home

Course goal: To develop the basic knowledge, skills and attitude essential to the safe and efficient use of a handgun for protection of self and family, and to provide information on the right to self-defense.  This class covers a review of the NRA gun safety rules, how to use firearms responsibly and ethically for personal protection, as well as developing the proper mindset for using a firearm for personal defense and when facing a life-threatening encounter.  Also covered will be mental awareness, how to avoid becoming a victim, strategies for home safety, responding to a violent confrontation in your home and basic defensive shooting tactics.  We’ll teach you gun ownership laws and more importantly, an in-depth discussion on the judicious use of deadly force including when deadly force is justified against “unarmed” aggressors.

Additional topics and activities included by GSL Defense Training above and beyond the NRA Personal Protection in the Home Course:  We will discuss interactions with potential assailants, the moral and ethical decision-making involved with deadly force, malfunction clearing drills and weapon retention strategies.  Also, post-shooting interventions with witnesses, responding & investigating officers, the media and others will be covered.  We will included a final shooting scenario to incorporate the lessons students have learned into a real-life shooting exercise.

Students will spend several hours on the range with live-fire both days. Students will fire approximately 250 rounds.

A Firearms Owners ID Card is recommended, but NOT REQUIRED.  Novice shooters are welcome!

This course not only satisfies the training requirement for Florida, Arizona and other state carry licenses, but will also serve as a strong foundation for future development of your personal shooting and self-defense skills.  It will likely count for 8-hours of the 16 required for the new Illinois carry license.

Registration includes lunch, drinks, range fees, safety equipment (as needed) and the NRA-required student packet of materials.  AZ and FL non-resident permit-to-carry applications are also included, along with a long list of bonus materials from GSL Defense Training.

  1. This was an excellent course. Really helps to build shooting knowledge about safety using your firearm, and the law. I took the course at Dewitt Cty. Sportsmans Club on April 13 and 14. Instructors were superb. I hope this will count for a concealed carry permit course. Either way it was a good experience.

  2. This was a good deal! Because for a cheap price, you can experience the GSL Defense Training. It was really cool and important that you have a personal protection in your home. Hopefully my shooting knowledge will build here. Exciting!

  3. This is some of the best training for the money I have seen. Great instructors in a family friendly atmosphere with no one trying to hard sell anything. The instructors and students all have a great time learning the skills that will help you make your family and yourself safer in any situation.
    Come on out and be prepared to have a good time.
