Lethal Force Self-Defense
Laws, Tactics & Strategies
Welcome to the June 2-5, 2023, Boise Conference!
WHEN will you need to know and understand the Laws of Self Defense?
Answer: At your trial...
We begin with; “What if...”?
“What If...”? is a great conversation starter. Every time we solve the problem at hand, we can be sidetracked by the next; “Yeah ... BUT What If ...”?
“What If” can be an endless labyrinth. An endless game of Whack-a-Mole.
What to expect? If you are ever confronted by an inescapable threat that could result in your serious bodily injury ... OR ... The possibility of your DEATH ...
We can EXPECT such a threat will come at great speed and with great violence.
The SURVIVOR of such a threat will have planned for such a happening, and will be the speedy-est and the violent-est.
Those that learn from the experiences of others take a shortcut to the head of the Survivor Line.
These 4 Days are all about GUN LAWS and the Judicious Use of Lethal Force in Self Defense. You will learn first-hand from some of our nation’s most talented Presenters. Together, they truly make up a Dream Team.
This is the only event where they are all together, in the same place, on the same stage, at the same time

Aftermath & Predicament Scenarios Part 2
JB Herren brings his 40+ years of training experience to set the stage.
The Laws of Lethal Force. You will come away knowing more than ever about how the Law guides us through the legal maze that is bound to follow any serious self-defense incident. You MUST know and Understand the LAW ... Because ... IGNORANCE of the Law will never be an excuse, nor an effective defense at your trial.
Rory Miller returns again to our stage this summer for a deep dive into the Art of Situation Awareness. The internet is awash with a varying opinions on how to become "Situationally Aware". This is a "Street-Smart" study of what will prepare you for the realities of everyday life.
Situational Awareness can be a joyous part of our everyday lives. You will become involved in the world around you. Smell the roses. Enjoy the sunsets. Feel the wind in your face. Listen to the sounds of your surroundings.
Rory comes with some recent case studies and a couple of deadly assault scenarios acted out, step-by-step, on our stage. He will narrate what those involved did to their advantage ... and what steps may have lead to their failure.
Rory brings his international hands-on experience to this class with tested results that makes the difference between a “Victor” and a “Victim”.
Come prepared to be part of the action! Our live-action scenarios often include the unpredictable responses of attendees being chosen to be part of the happenings. This is how we learn the best answers of “What would you do if ...”
With experience as a police officer, school teacher, firearms trainer and U.S. Army Officer, Ed Monk has been researching, writing and providing training on the Active Shooter Threat for than a decade. Ed has trained Law Enforcement Agencies and the armed staff of schools and churches. He has given presentations on Active Shooters to audiences all across our country.
At the Boise Conference this June, Ed brings us his fast-paced & information-packed presentation on the detailed study of the Active Shooter Threat. Maybe at the Mall. Maybe at the Church. Maybe at the School. When faced with a sudden deadly threat, Ed will give us proven methods of dominating and controlling and otherwise chaotic avalanche of violence.
Such attacks can be confusing and complicated:
Learn what to expect
Don't confuse the innocents with the attackers
Create a "plan" that can be practiced, drilled & rehearsed
Be more prepared than the assailant
Interrupt his plan
Reliable training is your security blanket
None of us are "immune" from the random, Active Shooter
The Shooter has a plan. YOUR plan must overwhelm the Shooter's plan!
You will come away with more confidence and more reliable information that will allow you to put together a plan best suited for YOU and your family.
Ed will also give nearly a semester's study on the Declaration of Independence & the United States Constitution and our Bill of Rights and the Constitutional Amendments 11-27.
Defeating Violent Criminals: A Conceptual and Tactical Analysis
This course offers both an academic and practical understanding of who criminals are, how criminals operate, and how to defeat them. Divided into four sections, the first section offers a general overview of violent crime in the United States, the types of criminals, their motivations, how they select victims, and strategies for avoiding becoming a victim. The second section
reviews fifteen years of FBI research into bad guys, good guys and their interactions, research which remains the gold standard for understanding these topics. The last two sections are case studies of two significant gunfights involving apex criminal predators - the Newhall Massacre and the FBI-Miami Firefight. The case studies are not limited to weapons carried and mistakes
made but include extensive coverage of the bad guys, their histories and motivations, in order to understand how significant the high end offender can be.
This class is intended for a general audience with questions about
self-defense and being safer. The case studies focus on serious lessons for the general public.
