Violent Crime on the Rise in Las Vegas: Expert Trains You on How To Protect Yourself, Family and Home

On April 19, 2016, an article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Wes McBride, a retired gang detective in Los Angeles and Director of the California Gang Investigators Association, stated that homicides in the Las Vegas Valley are up a whopping 91 percent this year from the same period in 2015.


Many Las Vegas residents remain concerned about this spike in violent crime. To this end, SWAT Concepts of Las Vegas, Nevada, is pleased to announce that we will be holding a 2-day Personal Protection and Home Defense Course in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Orange County, California.

The instructor is none other than expert, Charles Moser, a former member of the U.S. Navy SEALs and a current SWAT Team member. He is an elite special operations operator with extensive education and training in military and civilian law enforcement activities. With more than 30 years of experience to draw upon, Moser merges the best of both the U.S. Navy SEAL and Police SWAT operations in an effort to provide a unique immersed training experience to the general public.

Five Minutes That Could Save Your Life

Moser shares: "Whether you're at home, on the street, or traveling in the U.S. or abroad, men and women alike need to know what to do to protect themselves. Often, it takes five to seven minutes after calling the police for help to arrive. What you do in those precious five minutes is up to you." 

The training includes weapons and gun safety instruction, lecture, demonstration, and a day at the range. Each participant will leave better prepared and more confident in their ability to observe their surroundings, put necessary measures in place, and protect themselves and their loved ones. 

Other subject areas covered in the course include: 
- The fundamentals of markmanship
- Basic handgun, carbine and shotgun handling and manipulation
- Liability and gun safety
- Weapons selection
- Basic ballastics
- Movement drills
- 360-degree situational awareness
