Northern Chester County Sportsmens Club


Join us to learn how to deal with a violent encounter with a gun. Physical, Psychological, & Legal considerations are discussed in detail.

Real World Self Defense and Law

We have updated, expanded, and combined the topics of discussion from Real World Self Defense 1.5 and 2.0. We provide the student with techniques to develop a combat mindset and show you how to prepare for and survive a violent encounter.

All of the training in the world is of little use if you cannot survive the emotional, physiological, and legal aftermath. Carrying a gun is a sound plan to protect yourself and your loved ones from a violent encounter but in today’s society, you may not always have your gun with you. You may also be in a situation where you cannot use it or get to it. It is vital to know and understand how to defend yourself in such a situation as part of your self-defense plan.

A gun can be the “great equalizer” in a fight. The concepts you learn will tip the odds in your favor during a violent confrontation to either get away or deploy your own sidearm. 

An hour firearms law presentation by Michael Giaramita will round out the session.
