Hi. My name is Jason Hanson.
I was born and raised in Northern Virginia, but recently moved with my beautiful wife and daughter to Southern Utah. I spent 6 years with the Central Intelligence Agency. Although the Agency was a wonderful place to work, I could not see myself working for the government my entire life, so I left to start a security business.
Ours is a family run business, and without the support of my wife, Amanda, it would cease to operate. (Let’s just say her organizational skills are top notch and mine aren’t.) Over the past several years, we have been blessed to train thousands of Americans in personal protection, concealed carry, pistol, rifle, shotgun, and escape & evasion courses.
Our mission is simple:
First, if you’re serious about personal protection we’ll teach you the skills you need to know in today’s uncertain world. Second, we’ll do it in a relaxed and fun environment – none of that intimidating, military style. Because I don’t know about you, but I hated it when people did that to me during my various training at the Agency and other places. The bottom line is this: We believe there are few things in life as important as protecting yourself and the ones you love…We hope you’ll consider joining us for a training course, where our goal is to have you walk away with the confidence, skills, and knowledge to better protect yourself and your family.
