We need to train and prepare ourselves for every potential scenario. Do you have a plan in place for your Home Defense if something were to happen? Does everyone know the plan? Is your household honestly ready for a defensive scenario? If you’re unwary…then you need to get trained, period.

You will be placed in scenarios to enable critical thinking and emergency planning!

See why our course is the way to go, to get you in the right direction defensively! Come see why we’re the Number One rated defensive training company in Central Illinois!

One of the best Central Illinois firearms training companies with over 350+ FIVE STAR Reviews!

Home Invasion and Protection is the Number One fear of firearm owners across America.
According to the Department of Justice, reviewing data from 2003 – 2007, there were an average of 3.7 million burglaries every year!

Facts associated with these crimes:
A household member was present in roughly 1 million burglaries and became victims of violent crimes in 266,560 burglaries.
Simple assault (15%) was the most common form of violence when a resident was home and violence occurred. Robbery (7%) and rape (3%) were less likely to occur when a household member was present and violence occurred.
Only 12% of all households that were violently burglarized while someone was home faced an offender armed with a firearm.
Some home burglary statistics are frightening, such as:
Households composed of single females with children had the highest rates of burglary while someone was present.
Victims in 38% of households burglarized while someone was home were asleep at the time of the burglary, while 44% of households stated that household members were engaged in other activities in the home when the offender gained entry to the residence.
In 7% of all household burglaries, a household member experienced some form of violent victimization. This translates to about 266,560 violent victimizations during household burglaries, out of about 3.7 million home invasions taking place each year on average.
