New Academy Course Available- Aftermath of a Shooting


Non members use code 20OFF

The Aftermath of a Shooting

If you are involved in a shooting, what happens next?  What do you say to responding officers or investigators?  Will you be arrested?  How long will it be until you are cleared of any crime?  What happens if charges are filed?

These are all legitimate questions in reference to being involved in a lethal self defense case.  All shootings will be investigated, and self defense shootings are no different.   There will be a process that you will go through, and this process could take some time.  There will be interviews with you, witnesses, and even suspects.  There will be a collection of physical and forensic evidence, and your account of the incident will be compared against all of those interviews and evidence.  The seconds of your actions will be judged in hours and months by investigators and prosecutors.

This course covers that process, but starts with some things that you can do that might help you avoid being involved in a shooting.  If there are no other options but to use deadly force, then this course covers things and offers information that might better prepare you.  Some of the things covered are:

  • Training
  • Firearms and Ammunition selection
  • Self Defense Laws
  • Situational Awareness
  • First Response
  • Physiological and physical effects
  • Investigative process
  • Social Media and more
