Weapon Retention/Retrieval II

Conducted by a Multi-Discipline Certified Law Enforcement Instructor.

Whenever a firearm is introduced into a conflict there is the potential to find one self in a life or death struggle for your weapon. It is your responsibility to maintain constant situational awareness so that you may deploy sound tactics. When discussing weapons, we should not limit our perspective to handguns and firearms. A suspect who takes away an officer’s radio or impact weapon clearly poses a potentially lethal threat.

Fortunately, the concepts and principles are the same for impact weapon retention, shoulder weapon retention etc. that we have in our control.
