The Mindful Gun

The Mindful Gun is a concept and principle driven approach to best practices for being armed in public and social spaces.

A Concealed Carry course is a common entry point into the much larger and diverse study of personal defense. Unfortunately for many students, the class is frequently less educational and more tedium. Moreover, a majority of courses available are taught at the limits of instructors qualifications. In too many cases, misinformation actually increases students exposure to risk.

Resilience Development instructors maintain active credentials in some of the most sought after defensive shooting, defense law, immediate casualty care, and risk mitigation programs available to the public. Our cadre is comprised of seasoned US Army Infantry, Law Enforcement and civilian instructors with over 50 years of combined experience in adult education.

Our top priority is a training product consisting of two characteristics:

-Students devoted to robust best practices for safe firearms ownership and operation

-Students with an extremely detailed understanding of the limits of their abilities

These characteristics are only found at the end of a thorough process of both academic and practical development, at which point higher level refinement of skills becomes appropriate.

If you need to obtain or renew a concealed carry permit, or if you’d simply like a classroom based overview of the best information currently available on the subject, this is one of the best options available.
