Weapons Retention & Disarming System

Handgun / Long Gun Retention & Disarming System

The system was renamed Weapons Retention & Disarming in 2022 as an officer may use these techniques to retain their Handgun, Long Gun, Taser, O.C., Baton, and other items utilized on their person.

If you do not have a training weapon that fits your duty belt, contact us prior to training to see what possible arrangements may be necessary.  We can recommend vendors for training equipment or we may need to loan you a training gun and holster for completion of the course.

Handgun / Long Gun Retention & Disarming System

This is the Number One law enforcement system of Handgun/Long Gun Retention and Disarming – the first and still the best total system of weapon retention and disarming. Since its introduction by Jim Lindell for the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department in 1976, this system has been constantly updated and contains these important features:

This is an integrated system of gun/TASER® defense tactics that is effective and easy to apply, regardless of the officer’s age, sex or physical prowess.

Provide specific dynamic releases against an assailant’s grabs from the front, side or rear, while maintaining the weapon in the holster.

Use the officer’s weapon as a lever to break even the most powerful grip.

Enable an officer to get his/her own handgun, long gun or TASER® back, or to disarm a subject holding these weapons.

Many firearms trainers now teach these tactics in addition to their firearms courses during relay breaks. Always use a training gun - NEVER a live firearm.

Equipment needed: Casual or athletic clothing, footwear, holster, training weapon and belt.

8-Hour Instructors Course
Prerequisite: Core Essentials OR Approval of NLETC with comparable training.

* Note: Core Essentials is recommended as it has instructor development aspects to it as well as fundamental 'core' techniques, stances and other aspects that are within every single NLETC course.  For course cohesion, understanding things such as power stance, force efficiency and other concepts which are taught in Core Essentials allows us to decrease instructor certification times within other courses. Should instructors wish to not take Core Essentials and take other elective courses such as Handgun Long Gun Retention and Disarming, the course may need to be longer than the standard 8-hour course. A Training Board Member will need to handle these on a case by case basis.
