Firearm Alternative Survival Tactics (F.A.S.T.)

A two day course with basic or instructor certification upon completion.

This course works to bridge the gap between empty-handed defensive tactics and use of the firearm. F.A.S.T. techniques are utilized in situations where the officer is confronting multiple opponents and one or more of the assailants has or is likely to have a weapon.

F.A.S.T. doesn't mean alternative to your firearm. It means alternatives with your firearm.

Course includes safe positioning tactics, which give the officer more time to assess the situation and from there, the officer may then shoot or not shoot as appropriate.

This course has already saved the lives of officers!

Topics covered include:
  1. Transition to firearm vs. disengage to firearm
  2. Avoiding involuntary discharges
  3. Physio-kinetic control tactics
  4. Grappling with firearm
  5. Blocking with firearm
  6. Groundfighting with firearm
  7. FAST with edged weapons defense
  8. FAST with firearm retention
Soft body armor and duty belt are optional.
