With the uptick in mass shootings, especially at workplaces and schools, there’s no telling when you might be caught in a deadly situation. This can leave many people feeling powerless and full of fear, which can be extremely detrimental to your mental health and relationships.
The only choice you have is to take control of your fear and learn to defend yourself and your peers. By attending our next Range Day, you can learn fear control, firearm maintenance and operation, and how to take control of dangerous situations.
In this article, we’ll go over 7 reasons you should attend our next Range Day and how it could save your life and the lives of others.
1. Learn New Skills
Whether you are looking to learn to handle dangerous situations or control your fear, our Range Day offers the opportunity to learn tons of valuable new skills.
At our Range Day, you’ll learn firearm safety, operation, and maintenance from professional instructors with years of experience. They can teach you valuable life long skills that you’ll have in case a worst-case scenario ever takes place.
You’ll also learn valuable emergency first aid techniques. Hopefully, you’ll never have to use them, especially in the workplace.
But having the skills to save someone’s life is a skill that has tons of applications. Whether you’re at work, home, or out in the world, you’ll have the ability to step in and make a difference when it counts.
2. Get A Chance to Practice
Knowing how to shoot or apply first aid is great. But without the ability to practice those skills in a stressful situation, you might not perform when it comes down to the wire.
At our Range Day, you’ll hear from experts on how to handle these situations. But you’ll also get a chance to apply these skills in real-life scenarios. This will teach you how to think and act during these situations and may save your life or the lives of others.
3. Increase Confidence
If you’re constantly in fear, the only way to overcome it is to increase your confidence. While seeking therapy and using self-affirmation techniques are very helpful, the best way to increase your confidence is to learn how to take care of yourself and others.
Our Range Day is a crash course in advancing your knowledge. With firearm training, first aid training, fear control techniques, and a welcoming atmosphere, you’ll come away with important skills. They’ll help you feel more secure and prepared, which will boost your confidence and help you fight fear.
And you’ll learn all these skills in a friendly, positive atmosphere that’ll make you feel comfortable and welcome.
4. Get Control Over Fear
Learning how to protect and save the lives of yourself and others will definitely build your confidence, which will improve your life overall. But if things get serious and a mass shooting happens, you need to learn how to control your fear and think clearly.
The experts at our Range Day will teach you how to fight through your fear responses and take decisive, life-saving action. Learning these techniques will not only help you out on a daily basis, but they can also help you save lives.
5. Build Relationships
Attending our Range Day with your colleagues, family, or friends is a great opportunity to build your relationships with them. Working together closely to learn first aid and firearm safety will help you learn more about your peers and friends, which could be useful in a dangerous situation.
It’ll also give you the chance the meet the VRS team and speak to them. They have valuable knowledge to give you, and who knows, you might end the day having made a new friend!
6. Stop Violence Before It Begins
Even if your workplace seems like a friendly, welcoming place, there may be troubling brewing among the ranks. Problems at home, substance abuse, economic anxiety, and other factors can cause people to lash out and hurt others, which can turn deadly in a heartbeat. But if you could talk to that person and get them to calm down, you could change the outcome.
Learning how to stop the violence before it even begins is a crucial skill that could mean a bloodless end to a grave situation. At our Range Day, you’ll learn de-escalation techniques that you can apply in situations that are getting out of control.
While these skills might help you diffuse a deadly situation at work or school, they can also teach you valuable lessons about communication and conflict resolution. Although you might not use these skills to stop a deadly situation, you can use them to calm down angry people or repair relationships in your own life.
7. Develop a Plan for Worst-Case Scenarios
Having the ability to shoot and de-escalate a situation is useful, but it may not save you in an active shooter situation. If you’re in a dire position, you’re going to need a plan to stay alive and help as many people as possible.
The experts at our Range Day will not only give you the knowledge you need to survive and save lives, but they’ll also give you the ability to plan. As the famous boxing saying goes: “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.” And this Range Day will teach you to create your plan and adapt it according to the scenario, which is the most useful ability of all.
