Prepping Lvl 2

Students are expected to attend with their evacuation ‘Grab-n-Go’ bag (if you don’t know what that is, or what should be in it, you should take the Level 1 Prepping class). Bag content will be evaluated and utilized during class.
This is an outdoor, rain or shine event. You should base your equipment needs on that, and on the information found below.

Class begins as a drill… Based upon contact information and estimated travel times, each student will be called on the morning of class and given the class location. Ample time will be given for each student to “evacuate their home” and travel to the class location. (For example, if you live 30 minutes from the class location, you will be called 45 minutes before class start time. If you live 1 hour from class, you will be called 75 minutes before class start time.) If you arrive to class on time, your “evacuation” will be deemed successful.

Once on location, class will begin with a discussion of the evacuation experience. Students will then engage in hands-on lessons to learn; how to locate, collect, and treat water for drinking; how to properly identify and forage 5 common wild edibles (along with identifying and avoiding 3 poisonous plants) while learning the Universal Edibility Test; how to tie several knots and lashings, which will be used to construct an emergency shelter; whittling with a knife for the construction of deadfall traps utilizing 2 trigger assemblies; and how to successfully build a fire.

When you sign up for class, it is imperative that you provide us with the address that will be your point of origin on the day of class, if it will be other than your home address (i.e. work, relative, significant other). This will allow for accurate travel time assessment. Additionally, you must provide a phone number so the instructor can contact you with instruction the morning of class.

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”.
