Carry for self-defense? Got carry protection? Black Oak Training strongly recommends

Second Call Defense


Second Call Defense: The MOST COMPREHENSIVE Protection for Armed Self Defense in America


You've probably thought a lot about how you'll defend yourself if you're forced to use a firearm. Have you thought about what you'll do AFTER a self-defense shooting? We all have the right to defend ourselves. Unfortunately, you still can find yourself in a lot of trouble. You can be arrested, jailed, sued, fired, and bankrupted... even when you have legally and justifiably used a gun in self defense.

To answer that question for our own household we joined an organization called Second Call Defense, and we recommend that you consider joining as well. This is a membership program that offers immediate legal and financial support in addition to training for those who carry firearms for self-defense. If you carry and aren't yet a member of Second Call Defense, you really might want to rethink your strategy.

"If you use a firearm in self defense, your first call should be to 911 to request an ambulance and law enforcement; your second call should be to Second Call Defense."


(So you know: BOT is an affiliate and could get some money if you join -- but we'd recommend SCD even if this weren't the case.)
