  • Discussion of current events to assist in decision making.

  • We offer guidance to prepare for a concealed carry event.

Taking the State certified course is just the beginning. Our Covert Carry Course (advanced concealed carry), raises concealed carry training to the next level. The Covert Carry Course is conducted at the range to build upon your firearm fundamentals while also simulating real life situations to prepare you, the concealed carry holder. Although it is range training, we still guide our students so they are confident and comfortable WHEN they are justified to use their firearm.

Home defense differs in concealed carry. There are numerous considerations and challenges when preparing and training home defense with your firearm. Halo Defense Training & Tactic's Instructors will guide you on preparing, training and tactics when using your firearm for defense at home.
