Bad guys do have guns and one look at some of the gun control meccas like Chicago, New York and L.A. makes that abundantly clear. At Patriot Protection, you come face to face with all manner of “bad guys” who may have a knife, a gun or just a really bad attitude in reality-based scenarios. How is this possible you ask? Patriot Protection uses Non-Lethal Training ammunition in their scenario based training, the same type of reality-based live fire training that law enforcement uses. In fact, Patriot Protection trains law enforcement and military personnel, so their training is not based on redneck Rambo fantasies, but actual real life scenarios utilizing non lethal ammunition. This is the same type of reality-based training that law enforcement and military have been using for years.
Safety is paramount at Patriot Protection, so everyone passes through a metal detector prior to entering the range. Use of Non-Lethal training ammunition and firearms such as Glocks, AR-15s, and Berettas are used during these scenarios. The firearms have been retrofitted with custom conversion kits specifically designed to fire this type of ammunition with a safety lockout mechanism. This conversion renders the firearm inoperable should real ammunition be introduced to the equation. The scenarios are conducted in their 10,000 sq. ft. indoor facility which is designed to simulate your house, your car, a parking lot, a restaurant, a bank, or a convenience store. You will experience simulations of real life encounters such as carjackings, home invasions, muggings and even nonviolent situations which may be uncomfortable, but challenge your reaction. The instructors emphasize that not every scenario calls for using a weapon and being armed does not make every encounter a deadly force encounter. One of the key factors in their training – Good Judgment.
They challenge and welcome gun control advocates to come and experience a deadly force encounter, with or without a firearm. “We really want to give people experience and perspective through our training, only then can they truly have the knowledge to take a stand.” – Amanda Dodd, Owner. “Common Sense” and “Reasonable” regulation of firearms sounds good, and more importantly “feels” good, to many gun control advocates. By issuing this challenge, Patriot Protection would like to bring reality into the discussion as well. The reality that law enforcement faces, as well as the reality that many Americans face every day, by putting their gun control positions to the test in real life applications. This challenge is meant to educate and advance the debate on guns and is not a confrontational challenge. In fact, the challenge is open to pro-gun advocates as well.
It is one thing to buy a gun and go to the range to shoot paper targets, but what happens when the targets shoot back? Could you really pull the trigger on that Glock with a living human target in your sites? Could you do it with your adrenalin pumping and shots coming back at you? The reality-based training that Patriot Protection provides is just that, reality-based. The gun debate in America cannot be settled with statistics and scare tactics, reality will always trump good intentions and “feel good” politics. Safety is key at Patriot Protection, everyone passes through a metal detector prior to entering the range. This type of training is brand new to the market, in fact, Patriot Protection is the first company in Texas open to the public that allows this type of ammunition to be used. Whether you are pro-gun rights or pro-gun control, there is much to be learned at Patriot Protection.
