Are you and your client prepared in case you’re attacked while in your vehicle in-between business meetings, vacation traveling, or just regular commuting?  Acts of violence, specifically kidnappings, are on the rise.  We see in the news almost every night the violence that is taking place outside of our borders.  But it does take place inside our borders as well.  It is not as common here in the States, but it’s only a matter of time until the frequency of kidnappings and other criminal acts increases.  People of wealth and stature are afraid it might happen to them due to the economic woes of the USA.  The criminal element is becoming bolder and more brazen in their attacks and schemes.  This has caused an increase in production and manufacturing for companies like Texas Armoring Company in Texas.  Just watch and listen.

Armoring of any vehicle is available to all walks of life that have high exposure levels and feel the need for protection, but don’t want to pay for Executive Protection.  But those Executive Protection Agents that protect clients every day, and do not have access to armored vehicles, should recommend armoring a vehicle for their client.  Think about it.  When are you most vulnerable?  During transit in-between any function your client may have.  When your client is at the office, home, or favorite vacation spot, you can “lock them down”.  But when you’re out on the road, anything is possible.  From an optimistic point of view, if you’re attacked while in transit, it can also be an advantage to be on the road.  If you anticipate a possible vehicle assault, you’re already mobile and hopefully have planned your escape routes and you can get away safely.  Armoring your vehicle will also aid, and possibly ensure, you and your clients get away safely and avoid any unwanted public exposure or embarrassing issues.  Special James Bond type accessories can also be added to your Armored Vehicle.  Armoring vehicles is the latest trend in personal protection, and Texas Armoring Company is leading the charge.

If you have any questions about Bodyguards, Executive Protection, Dignitary Protection, Security Consulting, Armored Vehicle, Safe Rooms, or Firearms Training for you, your superiors, your company, or someone you know, feel free to call or email Gideon Protective Services for a free, confidential consultation.

If you’re enrolled in an Executive Protection Program and you need firearms training then look no further.  Gideon Protective Services offers Pistol 1.5 defensive shooting course specifically tailored for Executive Protection.  (The course is also offered to coincide at the same time frame as Joe LaSorsa’s 3-Day Executive Protection class).  If you are getting into the executive protection field and you are new to firearms or you already know how to shoot, and you want to clean up your shot and tighten your group/ pattern, then let Gideon’s NRA and California DOJ certified instructors teach you the three secrets to shooting.

After attending Pistol 1.5 for two days you will know what the secrets are and why they are important.  You will be able to present your pistol from concealment rapidly, deliver well placed shots, clear all malfunctions, perform tactical and emergency reloads, shoot on the move, shoot from behind barricades, and from non-traditional positions.  (This is a partial list.  Click on the firearms training link on the bottom of this page to learn more) Learn the techniques that are proven to work should you ever decide to shoot in a lethal force encounter while protecting your client.  It’s all fine and dandy to own and carry weapons for a living, but what good are your weapons if you go by the old adage of point and shoot and hope for the best.  Your client is paying for a trained professional and expects more from you.  You owe it to yourself and your client to make “good hits”.  You’re responsible ethically and morally for every round you fire.  So doesn’t it make sense to receive some firearms training that will make you more proficient, competent, and less of a liability should you decide to shoot?  The answer is Yes!  The price for the two day Pistol 1.5 course is $450.  Visit the firearms training link to take advantage of the “bring a friend special”.

Do you want to learn how to shoot your pistol and shotgun that you just bought and both are probably still lying next to your bed? Are you getting into the security field or law enforcement and want to learn how to shoot? Are you a Law -Abiding citizen concerned about your safety and that of your loved ones?  Do you already know how to shoot, but want to clean up your shot and tighten your group/ pattern?

Let Gideon’s NRA and California DOJ certified instructors teach you the three secrets to shooting. After two days you will know what the secrets are and why they are important. You will learn the four universal firearm safety rules and be able to present your pistol from concealment rapidly, deliver well placed shots, clear all malfunctions, and perform tactical and emergency reloads. Learn the techniques that are proven to work should you ever decide to shoot in a lethal force encounter. It’s all fine and dandy to own weapons, but what good are your weapons if you go by the old adage of point and shoot and hope for the best. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to make “good hits”. You’re responsible for every round you fire. So doesn’t it make sense to receive some firearms training that will make you more proficient, competent, and less of a liability should you decide to shoot?

With Gideon’s NRA and California DOJ certified instructors we keep our classes capped off to ten students. Smaller class sizes insure we can conduct a more personable shooting experience and give each of our students the time they deserve and require. A two day Pistol 1.0, Pistol 2.0, Shotgun 1.0, and Rifle 1.0 course normally costs $550. But due to the current economic woes, we are having an ”O-nomics depression price reduction sale”. The price of a 2 day course is only $400, a fraction of what your first weapon costs.  We believe a one day course is not sufficient time to build confidence in your gun handling or to gain a lasting muscle memory foundation. 

The reward for taking a 2 day course (besides honing great gun handling and marksmanship skills) is every student that brings a friend each member in that group will receive $50 off their cost of the course.  Example: I sign up for a Pistol 1.0 course and 2 of my friends or family do the same; all three of us would pay $350 each for the 2 day course instead of $400 each, that’s $150 savings.  If you have a private group of shooters and you want to have a private 2 day course all to yourselves on either a weekend or mid-week, call to reserve a private training session for your group or select one of the dates listed and we’ll make it happen.

Some of the techniques and nuggets you will learn are not limited to:

  • Four universal gun safety rules
  • Rapid presentation and stance
  • The 3 shooting secrets
  • After action drills
  • Clearance of three major malfunctions to keep your weapon running
  • Emergency and tactical reloads
  • After action drills
  • Moral and ethical decision making used during lethal force encounters
  • Law of the land for where you reside

Gideon Protective Services will offer our courses on the weekends just like our competitors.  But we realize there is a demand for people who work weekends and want a mid-week course.  Go to http://executive-protection-services.com/content/firearms_training.html.  for our training calendar.

*Note- Confirmed students will receive a map and location to the outdoor ranges.  We are a local Southern California operation and we have locations in the Chino Hills, Lake Elsinore, and Pala areas.
