Yes it is true. There comes a time when you have to acknowledge the outstanding abilities of another. The person I 100% endorse is lifelong friend and fellow Firearms Instructor, J Michael McKirahan of Mindsight Firearms Training. Mindsight Firearms Training is located near the Twin Cities of Minnesota. J. Michael McKirahan puts together a great hand to hand defense and Firearms Training program. The programs offered by Mindsight Training are so great, that Gideon Protective Services and Mindsight Training are teaming up and creating our own joint pilot program. Why, you might ask? Here are words of wisdom by J. Michael McKirahan of why it is you should train:
“Why is it important to train and prepare for a situation we pray will never happen? Having a firearm for personal protection is the right of every American and what we do with that right is up to the individual. Some of us, depending on which state we live, chose to carry our firearm on our person or we chose to have a firearm in our residence to protect our families. In either case, having a firearm gives us the ability to change the course of events in a situation in which we feel our life or the life of another is threatened. The split second decision to protect your life or the life of another can come with lifelong consequences. How do you train? Shooting skills are tangible and will deteriorate with lack of practice and repetition. We have a responsibility to our families and/or other people around us to maintain a very high level of training. Imagine saving the life of a family member or fellow American, because you have prepared and trained your body and mind for the worst possible scenario. Now imagine reacting to a situation you have never thought of, or trained for…. Now you are on trial for murder, or in a civil court battle trying not to lose everything you have worked for in your life. There are only three outcomes of a deadly force situation.
1. You respond by engaging your training and using the tools and skills you have built for a positive outcome.
2. You do nothing and live with whatever the result of someone else’s actions.
3. You respond without thought, never having trained or prepared your mind for such an event.”
Those of us at Gideon Protective Services could not be happier having someone of this caliber in our ranks. The training program Gideon Protective Services and Mindsight Training are going to unveil will focus on Church Security and it will be released in the near future. You can count on “top shelf” hand to hand, knife, firearms, and mental awareness training program that can be applied to everyone and can be include in all aspects of your daily lives.
