Ayoob and Rauch offer insights into personal protection for women

Philadelphia, PA-Second Amendment Sisters of Pennsylvania (SAS-PA) is proud to announce a weekend lecture series with Massad Ayoob and Walt Rauch. The weekend kicks off with a dinner on April 4th at Cannstatter Volksfest Verein in Philadelphia. The two-day lecture series runs on Saturday April 5th and Sunday April 6th at the Holmesburg Rod and Gun Club, also in Philadelphia.

Ayoob is the Founder and principle instructor at Lethal Force Institute, which has numerous levels of firearms training classes. Ayoob has authored many books and countless magazine articles. He is also a part-time/fully sworn police officer with the rank of Captain. Articles or stories about Massad Ayoob have appeared in such mainstream media as the Wall Street Journal, New York Post, LA Times, PBS Frontline, ABCs 20/20, Boston Herald, and many more too numerous to mention. A powerful speaker, superb motivator, and skilled communicator, Massad Ayoob is recognized as one of the best firearms instructors in the country.

Walt Rauch is the author of Real-World Survival! What Has Worked For Me. Unlike a lot of today's firearms luminaries, Walt Rauch has really been there. Whether it was while he was a Special Agent for the U.S. Secret Service or as part of the Philadelphia Warrant Squad or while working as a high-risk investigator on the docks of Philly, Rauch has seen what fighting is like from the inside. He was a Special Agent with the U.S. Secret Service and an Investigator with the Philadelphia (PA) Fugitive Squad (where he made over 2,000 felony arrests). He now operates a consulting firm, Rauch & Company, Ltd., and provides firearms training as well as expert witness testimony on firearms use and tactics.

"We are thrilled to be able to bring these two powerful speakers together for a weekend that is sure to please experienced shooters and new comers alike. Both men are legends in the law enforcement world who communicate lessons they've learned from real-life experience -- not from theory. This is bound to be a once-in-a-lifetime event you won't want to miss!" states Pam Carneal, SAS-PA State Coordinator.

This course is everything that Ayoob and Rauch have wanted to teach women about firearms for personal protection but which isn't covered in their regular courses. This course is an important supplement to other gun courses and will cover material that cannot be found elsewhere. Although the course is aimed at women, the information is taught in context such that both instructors explain that this course will also be valuable to men, and even law enforcement officers, especially for those who work with women shooters. Attitude will be covered in the course, especially myths about women who choose to carry guns and how to answer questions from people who don't understand or might not otherwise accept the armed lifestyle. The course will include detailed explanations of real-world confrontations and explain which guns and which holsters work better for women. The course will also cover women's advantages in a confrontation - stress tests with telemetry have shown that women generally have a lower peak stress level which reaches the apex later. Women have a faster learning curve and greater fine motor skills such as greater dexterity for rapid reloading. The course will also include a brief guideline for when it's legal to pull the trigger. Proceeds from this course benefit the Second Amendment Sisters.

PA has a HUGE number of CCW permit holders. Issuance in most counties is routinely granted to anyone with a clean record. PA is also Class III friendly except for destructive devices (grenades, bazookas).
