One of the first and most important steps, in carrying self-defense tools is a clear understanding of self-defense and the law. It is also important to consider the moral and ethical aspects of self-defense. A Permit-to-Carry class can help you understand these issues and make informed decisions.
QSI has partnered with Condition Orange Preparedness to provide Permit to Carry instruction.
You can reach them through their website www.conditionorangepreparedness.com.
If you can’t make a Condition Orange class, QSI Principal Instructor Erik D. Pakieser has some availability for private classes. Please contact us for more information.
Permit the Carry training shouldn’t be the end of your journey. If you’re going to carry a gun for self-defense, it’s important to seek out other training on subjects such as:
Practical Handgun Skills – You need to know how to safely, carefully and responsibly draw and shoot your handgun. The QSI Defensive Handgun course was designed to teach these skills in the context of self-defense and is an ideal companion to the Permit to Carry course.
Decision Making, Disengaging and De-Escalation – Being able to identify danger and knowing when to draw or use your firearm – or, more importantly – when NOT to – are critical skills. In the QSI Force on Force programs, you can learn these skills in dynamic and realistic simulations against real human opponents. There is no other training like this!
Emergency Trauma Care – if you are going to carry a handgun, you need to have the knowledge to treat gunshot injuries. The QSI Emergency Trauma Care course will provide you with these important skills.
