MEET JAMES R. JARRETT

As a veteran Green Beret, LAPD officer, federal agent and deep-cover intelligence operative, James R. Jarrett has decades of experience as a tactical weapons practitioner and instructor.

He is the ideal teacher to guide you through the self-defense scenario and the long legal battle that follows, with the blunt admonition that “… your problem starts when you have won the gunfight.”
