This is NOT a firearms course and is perfect for people who have no desire at all to arm themselves with a firearm but want to know more about being aware of the environment that they find themselves in, no matter where they go. It is also an excellent addition to the training that people have received from us on the gun range.
This two-hour classroom style lecture invites people of all backgrounds to consider the dangers that exist in the world around them while having the audacity to believe in the power of protective love. This course is intended for teenagers, students, moms, dads, grandparents, and anyone who wants to be more aware of the world around them.
Topics covered include:
– Defining and practicing Environmental Awareness
– How being environmentally aware helps you see the good around you
– Learning to trust our intuition
– Why Environmental Awareness can save my life
– An introduction to flashlights and pepper spray
– Liminal spaces, what they mean, and why they matter
– Common pre-attack indicators
– Common attack strategies
– The audacity to hope, the power to love, and the will to protect

Instructor Shane is hosting his mentor Samuel Middlebrook in March and wanted to invite you or anyone you know to attend.
Instructor Shane’s own thoughts on” The Test” In the “Test” you are going to experience how big Samuel Middlebrook’s heart is, to allow you as a shooter to explore and experience your own shooting and have an environment made so you can learn best. It was amazing to take this course and completely change the way I learn from myself. I teach in this industry. I have taken so many classes where there is a lack of personal attention and coaching to every student at their level where students are overwhelmed before the course even starts. Samuel ensures every student leaves with a mind-blowing experience about their shooting and who they are as a person. – Instructor Shane

Blog: “Nobody Needs an AR-15”
by: Sam Lichtman
The continuing debate over gun control is an interesting one for many reasons, among them the fact that only one side of the argument actually understands the subject matter. Most supporters of gun control know very little about the firearms they are constantly trying to ban; many prominent anti-gun public figures flaunt their ignorance as a perverse badge of honor. Especially in areas with low rates of firearm ownership, anti-gunners display a bizarre pearl-clutching attitude toward those of us who choose to arm ourselves in a way laypeople find “scary.” “Why do you need an AR-15?” they ask, fearful and disgusted at a community and way of life they fundamentally do not understand. Californians have it even worse; living in a state with a notoriously nonsensical “assault weapon” ban, they are forced to justify overturning longstanding laws to people who believe those laws are the only things keeping the state from looking even more like the set of an ‘80s action thriller. The purpose of this blog post is to rebut the contention that “nobody needs an AR-15” in a way that even someone who has never even smelled a gun can understand, in the hopes that readers can forward this post to their anti-gun friends and put the myth to rest once and for all.
Gun Owners Radio: Personal Protection Academy takes over Gun Owners Radio
Mike Pettengill from Personal Protection Academy takes over the show. Mike & the crew touch on new gun owners, the closing of Frontsight Firearms Training Institute, California politics, gerrymandering, getting in the middle of conflicts as a gun owner, de-escalation, pepperspray, favorite firearms, training for CCW holders, and things that make trainers cry.
Not only do Mike and his wife, Erin, run a great firearm training company but they also serve as board members of Inland Empire Gun Owners. Connect with Mike & Erin on their website:
The right to self-defense is a basic human right. Gun ownership is an integral part of that right. If you want to keep your Second Amendment rights, defend them by joining San Diego County Gun Owners (SDCGO), Orange County Gun Owners (OCGO), or Inland Empire Gun Owners (IEGO).
Support the cause by listening to Gun Owners Radio live on Sunday afternoon or on any podcast app at your leisure. Together we will win.

Become a #NotMeIE Ambassador
The #NotMeIE program is a mentor/mentee referral service run by women for women to help them:
Obtain firearms training
Get assistance in choosing and purchasing a firearm
Obtain a CCW
How does the program work?
A potential client can fill out the application for service on our website. Once received, the project manager reviews the application and assigns the client to an Ambassador. An Ambassador then contacts the client to begin the process of walking them through whatever their firearm needs are. After the client has been successfully helped, their case is closed, and the Ambassador is given a new client to work with. Some of our Ambassadors are also NRA certified trainers. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of firearms training and purchasing. IEGO also offers an online CCW seminar once a month. Check the IEGO website for upcoming dates. If you are an experienced gun owner and are interested in becoming an Ambassador for the #NotMeIE program please reach out to Karla at firstname.lastname@example.org
