Civilian Response To Active Shooter Events

Center Mass Academy has been part of many active shooter seminars and researched many methodologies. We have found Civilian Response To Active Shooter Events (CRASE) to be the best response to these dangerous events. This information has been made possible through Texas State University and the ALERRT program (Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training). This information is free to everyone. Texas State University and ALERRT have developed the Avoid, Deny, Defend response to the active shooter scenarios. This is an easy to remember method for community members of all ages and abilities to follow.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has attended these presentations this past year. I always enjoy meeting you all.

Also for more information for response to violent events check out the "I Love You Guys Foundation"  this foundation was started by the Keyes family in response to the death of their daughter and has been providing information for First Responders and the Public, the Standard Response Protocol (SRP). This information is also free and being utilized by school districts around the nation. "Chance favors the prepared mind"

Yes, however Hunter safety education does not cover any aspects in regards to concealed carry or use of deadly force.

Multi-State CCW Class held on October 8, 2016

I had previously signed up for a Concealed Carry class and it was held yesterday at a local gun club.

To say it was beyond interesting would be an understatement. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. The reason was the instructor was fantastic! Tim Chaussee is a retired Chippewa County deputy, is a highly qualified instructor, and definitely knows his stuff. But, what was most impressive, to me over the way the material was presented, was the empathy he showed everyone on the range. He took the time to WORK with every shooter, individually, to help them shoot better and become more familiar (in my case) with their guns. He was GREAT!! Very impressed with the whole thing and it was time(and money) well spent.

Now all that is needed is to send in the certificate from the course, the application and fee and I will have my permit. The way things are presently in this world, I'll feel better know I will have another option.

One thing that was surprising was the number of women that took the course. That was nice to see. More should do this, I think.

All in all, a very interesting and valuable day for me.

Thank you were fantastic!

Drove a few miles to get here, well worth the time. Tim has been there and done that, and is extremely passionate about what he does here. Highly recommended!


Advanced Pistol Tactics held on October 14, 2017


Just had to tell you that this has been a delightful, truly enjoyable day filled with a ton of important information. The learning and shooting was fantastic and rewarding. For that, thank you.

Secondly, I received my Minnesota permit in the mail today, it only took one week truly exciting.

Gave my brother a run down and he is really excited. His wife is now considering further training also.

So with hunting season nearly here, I am curious about further educational opportunities with you, so I am asking that when and if you are available to please keep me in mind for further training.

Again thank you very much
