“A study by Carnegie Mellon University found people tend to overestimate the extent to which they will take action–for themselves or others–when they are faced with a dangerous situation.

Thus, courage is built over time through repetition and experience, more than through imagination.”

–Google on the topic of “courage and how does one attain it?

It was an AI response, but we here at Pistol & Pluck couldn’t agree more.

Courage doesn’t happen because we simply think we’ll become powerful and skilled in that moment when we must defend. Nor do we gain it through birthright.

No, courage is attainable only by the individual.

Strategy, skills, and action overcome fear and foe.

Coming through to the other side of fear … that is an achievement of courage.

At Pistol & Pluck, LLC, we also believe that obtaining the skills to save your own life or the life of another is the ultimate act of caring.

It is a willingness to step up with settled resolve of the mind.

Confidence built upon success…

It’s a matter of doing.

We break down the “doing” into digestible bites.

Safety is our utmost priority.

It is the entire point of the matter, in fact.

Through doing, in both safe and relaxed setting, your skills will be established and multiplied as you advance down the PATH.

Your confidence meter bumps up with each achievement. More complex concepts and challenges await.

When you’re ready for the next step, the PATH is before you. Whether your preference is in-person or through E-learning…

It simply requires that you step out.
