• Interested in learning how to retain your firearm?
  • Are you a permit holder who carries your firearm outside of the home for self defense?
  • Or maybe an armed security professional who carries a weapon during working hours?
  • Learned how to shoot a firearm but was never taught on how to retain it in the event someone went to grab it?

You’ve Come to the Right Place!!

The four (4) hour firearm retention course is not only for security professionals, but also for firearm permit holders, business owners, and anyone else who may have need to carry a firearm.

This training program was developed specifically for private gun owners as well as armed security personnel. If you ever thought on how you would defend your firearm during a physical assault or attempted disarming, then look no further. This training has always been an integral part of law enforcement training and preparation. Our training course is tailor-made to fit the needs of the general public and armed security officers.

Learn to protect and keep your weapon safe and in your possession, while in its’ normal carry position during an assault or physical confrontation, or after you have drawn it during an encounter.

If you currently live in or are visiting Connecticut, then you have come to the right place.


  • Our staff are Certified Instructors, with backgrounds in Law Enforcement and / or in federal government agencies and have combined extensive training in firearm retention techniques.
  • Local, State and Federal Laws only require a basic safety knowledge of firearms and most curriculums only consist of those basics. Firearm Retention Techniques are not included in any of those curriculums but are necessary to maintain safety.

P.S: – There is a minimum attendance of two (2) students in this course, as manipulative skills require student practice upon each other and a maximum of 12 students for safe instructor oversight.

Cost of the course is $95.00.
