RTBAV LOGO Experts agree that the single most important step toward ensuring your personal safety is making the decision to refuse to be a victim. That means that you must have an overall personal safety strategy in place before you need it. To help you design your strategy SOFT is pleased to now include the NRA’s Refuse to Be a Victim program. Sign up now for the inaugural program on Oct 25th at Sharpshooters Range in Lorton, Va.
