MAG/20 Classroom -

Armed Citizen's Rules of Engagement  


Massad Ayoob is personally teaching this two-day, 20-hour immersion course in rules of engagement for armed law-abiding private citizens, emphasizing legal issues, tactical issues, and aftermath management. Topics will include interacting with suspects, witnesses, responding police officers…threat recognition and mind-set…management of social and psychological aftermath after having had to use lethal force in defense of self or others…and preparing beforehand for legal repercussions and minimizing exposure to them. Situations in the home, at the place of business, or “on the street” will all be covered.

Location:  FRC Range in Baton Rouge, LA.

Prerequisite: None except except that participants have some proof of having passed criminal record check (a CHP will suffice). Email to discuss other options.


Cost: $400 - Previous MAG/LFI graduates get 50% "REFRESHER STUDENT" discount.

Please bring your own lunches, snacks, beverages etc. We have a “working lunch” in all classes. Many of our facilities do not have a place close enough to purchase meals and get back in a reasonable amount of time. Also remember that many of our classes are 10 hour days so if you need another meal in that amount of time please bring it. Bring water, while we do provide water at all of our locations, it never hurts to bring some more. We teach in many locations and cannot guarantee the comfort of the chairs, if that might be an issue for you feel free to bring a cushion to sit on.

If you have any questions please email Scott Merrick at or call 225-202-0607.


All Classes meet at 8:30 AM on the First Day
