OUR MISSION

To provide the best firearm safety, Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit and personal protection training, using the most advanced technology and proven training methods in the industry. USADefense believes that every American has the right to protect themselves and their family. We are located in Murfreesboro, TN, just a short drive.

Gun Safety Education

One of the most common ways to acquire a Tennessee handgun carry permit is by participating in a class. This may be a safety course, law enforcement or training course; whatever it may be, they usually vary in curriculum and length. It may be appealing to take the shortest course and complete the minimum requirements, but most industry experts advise against this concept.

Especially for those who are new to firearms and the entire gun industry, a concealed handgun carry course can be a great introduction and foundation to understanding proper gun etiquette and conduct. A longer course can provide more range time and instruction about Tennessee state laws and regulations. An in-depth knowledge of state laws and the responsibilities associated with concealed carry can prevent costly fines and other issues that result in being ignorant about concealed carry laws. We strongly suggest that everyone think about why they want to get a Tennessee concealed carry permit, and then find the course, or courses that will help them achieve their objective.

Countering The Mass Shooter

Must Be 18+

USCCA Countering The
Mass Shooter Threat

 

$55.00

This course covers a comprehensive playbook for countering the Mass Shooter Threat:  By analyzing data gathered from 48 mass shootings that have occurred since Columbine, to determine what can be learned from these tragedies, including whether a reduction in magazine capacity or  the banning of any class of firearm would have changed the outcome.  Also covered, a look at whether “gun-free” zones figure into the planning of these mass murders; whether victim response at any mass shooting has made a difference; and whether “universal background checks” or other similar proposals by gun control advocates stand a chance of stemming the current trajectory of these shootings.  This data will then be summarized with a comprehensive plan to eliminate the scourge of these shooter atrocities once and for all.

  • Mass shootings by the numbers.
  • Would reducing magazine capacity or banning AR-15 style guns work?
  • Do gun-free zones help or hurt?
  • Does victim response make a difference?
  • What are universal background checks, and would they end mass shootings?
  • What about no fly lists and terror watch lists?
  • Knowing the signs.
  • Creating an emergency operations plan for your school, house of worship or business.
  • Special security considerations for schools.
  • Special security considerations for houses of worship.
  • Using the Run, Hide, Flight Methodology.
  • When fighting back means using a firearm.
  • Triage and treat the wounded.
  • The criteria for gun free zones.
  • Where do we go from here?

Safety Rules for every class: No ammo in class room during our safety course, firearms must be in case or range bag at all time unless otherwise stated by Instructor. Photo ID is required. ammo, ear and eye protection. Course fees do not include cost of range fee.
