Why PSC’s Concealed Carry Academy?

We at PSC CCA help you to PREPARE or what you might encounter in your daily life, AVOID potential problems before they become serious (our motto is “You win every fight you avoid”) and then when necessary – DEFEND yourself and your family with actions which are right for you.

There is no question that, even with all the problems we face as a nation, we live in the greatest country in the world and as such have never had a more professionally trained and equipped law enforcement community to protect us than we do now.

However, there is another reality – and that is that the law enforcement community cannot be everywhere, and they – of necessity –react to crime after the fact  – and that takes time, precious time.

We believe that it is incumbent on each of us to do whatever is within reason, in order to help reduce our vulnerability to crime, or – where appropriate – to better prepare ourselves to protect that which is dear to us.

Our goal at PSC is to assist those folks who want to take more responsibility for the safety of themselves (and their families) by learning those simple things they can do in order to make themselves less attractive as a target to a would-be criminal and, for those who wish, better prepare themselves to do more should that need arise.

We are professionals who are experienced and capable of helping you to evaluate your particular situation and help you make the decisions regarding the safety and security of you and your family which is right for you – then to assist in the implementation of those decisions.
