Shortly after Harvey began teaching Firearms and Active Shooter Response to the community, he realized there was a serious need for high quality, realistic tactical training that was not generally available to the public. Continuum of Force Concepts was established to address that need and our goal is to provide realistic, quality training to the Responsibly Armed Citizen, Law Enforcement and Military Personnel from legitimate Military and Law Enforcement instructors with verifiable experience.
