So you want to become an Executive Protection Specialist? Do you have prior law enforcement, military, emergency services, private security background, or a willingness to learn? If you possess common sense and either have, or can develop a security frame of mind, then you too can get into this line of work. It is critical that you develop this sixth sense. To be successful in Executive Protection one must always be thinking, and think early and often. My executive protection instructor (Retired Secret Service Agent Joe LaSorsa) constantly said, “Failing to prepare, is preparing to fail”. Nothing could be truer. All the logistics need to be considered to put together a security detail of any size. You need to be ready for any last minute changes, and to account for contingency plans if something doesn’t go according to plan. You must always be thinking and be prepared well ahead of your client. It will pay dividends at the end of the detail and your client will surely notice the planning you put into place before the detail ever leaves with the client.

You ask where you can learn all the things necessary to become a great Executive Protection Specialist. Where can you go to learn from the best? Who has the real world credibility and experience? There are many Executive Protection schools across the nation that are available to teach all of the things you want to know about EP. I only know of one school that gives you real world experience, the real “nuts and bolts” of Executive Protection, without all the “fluff” that other schools will give you. If you want to learn from the best then seek out Retired Secret Service Agent Joe LaSorsa. Click on the link below or give him a call to get started.

Executive Protection FirearmsTraining

If you’re enrolled in Joe Lasorsa’s Executive Protection Program and you need firearms training then look no further. Gideon Protective Services offers Pistol 1.5 defensive shooting course specifically tailored for Executive Protection. The course is also offered to coincide at the same time frame as Joe LaSorsa’s EP class. If you are getting into the executive protection field and you are new to firearms or you already know how to shoot, and you want to clean up your shot and tighten your group/ pattern, then let Gideon’s NRA and California DOJ certified instructors teach you the three secrets to shooting.

After attending our Pistol 1.5 training course for two days you will know what the secrets are and why they are important. You will be able to:

  • Present your pistol from concealment rapildy
  • Shoot on the move and from behind baricades
  • Deliver well placed shots
  • Clear all malfuntions
  • Perform tactical and emergency reloads

(This is a partial list. Click on the firearms training link on the left side of this page to learn more.)

Learn the techniques that are proven to work should you ever decide to shoot in a lethal force encounter while protecting your client. It’s all fine and dandy to own and carry weapons for a living, but what good are your weapons if you go by the old adage of point and shoot and hope for the best. Your client is paying for a trained professional and expects more from you. You owe it to yourself and your client to make “good hits”. You’re responsible ethically and morally for every round you fire. So doesn’t it make sense to receive some firearms training that will make you more proficient, competent, and less of a liability should you decide to shoot? The price for the two day Pistol 1.5 course is $450. Visit the firearms training link on the upper left side of this page to take advantage of the “bring a friend special”.

If you want to learn how to shoot and operate your weapon system to better protect you and your client, if you have any questions, or to check for availability, do not hesitate to call  ICS of Colorado Services at 800-828-9198 or email us at
