One of the few positives to come out of the dumpster fire year that has been 2020 is the fact that the last six months have started opening more peoples’ eyes. Whether due to pandemic panic, supply chain interruptions and goods shortages, or civil unrest, more Americans than ever are coming to realize that firearms ownership is a good thing. And beyond that, more people are thinking about bigger-picture preparedness. After all, as most seasoned firearms enthusiasts are aware, your gun collection alone is not enough. Your experience, expertise, and legitimate training with said guns are all critical as well. And looking even beyond that, if you really want to be prepared – that is, if you’ve adopted a true preparedness mindset – defensive firearms are only one component of planning. In addition to being a premier firearms school, KR Training in central Texas thoroughly understands these elements. That’s why they, along with preparedness author and thought leader Paul T. Martin, have announced a new virtual preparedness conference with the following press release.
KR Training Launches Virtual Preparedness Conference
KR Training, the oldest and largest firearms training school in Central Texas, continues its leadership role in the preparedness training market by launching a Virtual Preparedness Conference, featuring on-demand training opportunities on topics pertinent for the next 6 to 12 months.
Karl Rehn, the owner of KR Training, partnered with national preparedness trainer and author Paul Martin to develop a series of videos aimed at helping citizens quickly and effectively better prepare themselves for a wide spectrum of perils.
“These are timely topics to teach people what they need to know to prepare for the possibility of societal disruptions caused by more COVID lockdowns, civil unrest, a contentious presidential election and anything else that might be coming our way,” Rehn said.
This is the ninth collaborative effort in creating preparedness conferences, as Rehn and Martin have been hosting an annual preparedness conference every January since 2013.
Martin’s presentations, along with the presentations of other national trainers, distill the guidance into clear, easy to follow and actionable steps people can take to improve their readiness.
“This year, Karl and I have been inundated with messages asking us for guidance to get better prepared. Citizens looking for simple and effective guidance to prepare for what may be coming can find a lot of solutions in this virtual conference. We’ve priced the presentations to be affordable to everyone,” Martin said.
Viewers can watch the conference presentations at vimeo.com/ondemand/ptmpreparedness.
The newest video is a 45 minute lecture on the current state of gun rights and court cases from former NRA-ILA research Mark Overstreet.

Why trust KR Training and Paul T. Martin as sources of info and potentially life-saving education like this? The curriculum vitae speak for themselves. Karl Rehn has been training and competing for nearly half a century, and instructing for more than half of that time. He has put in thousands of hours of learning under a veritable “who’s who” of firearms instructors and schools, including Thunder Ranch, InSights, Tactical Defense Institute, Massad Ayoob Group, Rangemaster’s Tom Givens, Paul Howe, Dave Spaulding, Ken Murray (Simunition), Jerry Miculek, Rob Leatham, Ben Stoeger, and many more. The list is dozens long, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a better firearms training résumé.
For his part, Paul T. Martin comes at preparedness from a different angle. Although he is also trained and certified in firearms instruction, he came to understand the importance of a readiness mindset via insurance law. This lead him to develop incident response and business continuity planning and training programs for law firms and insurers, and then he has continued learning from there. He is or has been a volunteer firefighter, a certified EMT-B, a HAM radio operator, a private pilot, a certified Storm Spotter for the National Weather Service, and a speaker/author. Suffice it to say, these gentlemen and their associates have a wealth of knowledge to bring. Check out the conference and let us know what you think in the comments below! See you at the range.
