Defensive Flashlight

Are YOU walking confidently?  With all of the New Jersey gun laws, the criminals are the ones walking confidently thinking you cannot defend yourself when out in public without a firearm.  What appears at first to be a simple flashlight, in the hands of our graduates is a weapon capable of stopping and incapacitating attackers.  The best thing is that a flashlight can be carried anywhere, even on an airplane.  This course is ideal for everyone in the family, especially students.  You will not only learn how to protect yourself with a small light, but also how to conduct yourself before and after a defensive situation.  Course has limited seating.  At Gun for Hire we strive to provide the most qualified and competent instructors with every course we offer.

“Thank you for putting together a first rate class”

Thank you for putting together a first rate class. My hands and legs are sore! My gun needs a major cleaning. And, I learned things about my shooting and myself that you cannot put a dollar amount on. Gun For Hire is the best!
Best, Richard.

Instructor Bios:

All of our high-level courses are taught by experienced professionals with the credentials to prove it. They are all trained and certified by the N.J. Police Training Commission, N.J. Department of Criminal Justice, and possess Federal Law Enforcement Instructor Certifications. They are experts in N.J. Use of Force Policies, and are always updating the course material with the latest use of force guidelines and case law. At Gun For Hire, this is not a “hobby”, but a full-time, legitimate vocation. Any “instructor” can teach you something, but only a select few can teach you the “why” or the “root of law” to justify your actions. If you were to use your newly acquired skills and were required to justify your actions, Gun For Hire instructors are ready, willing, and able to testify in your defense, as long as you had followed the training and procedures we provided. It does you, and your loved ones, no good if you survive the fight but have spend the next thirty years in prison because of the wrong advice you were given by a part-time amateur “instructor”.
