How To Choose A Concealed Carry Instructor And Why?

In Illinois it’s common practice for the defense, prosecution, or both to recognize the licensee’s concealed carry instructor as an expert witness. We could be asked basic questions such as: Did you pay attention in class, were you awake or falling asleep, did you ask good questions, were you argumentative, did you demonstrate a knowledge of the law in question, whatever the defense or prosecution thinks may benefit their case may surface and be asked. Your instructor might be asked how they taught a certain area, say the 21 foot rule. Your instructor should be able to step in front of a judge and jury, present a professional look and demeanor, and basically teach the jury the 21 foot rule so they understand it as you the student understood it, so they can see why you did what you ultimately did.

RELOADING: Case Preparation

The CM2000 or maybe the CM500 is the media separator you want.. And if you need something to prop up the corner of your house this is the one you want. A night and day no doubt in my mind comparison. If you simply want the best media separator in the home reloading business, get the Dillon CM500 or CM2000.

How to Choose a Carry Gun

But the most important question we can face is about training. How do we use this weapon for best effect? How to use it inside our home when loved ones are a thin wall away? How do we use it if we’re caught up in a armed robbery? What if we’re car-jacked. Home invasions are on the rise, does everyone in your home know their role and are they well trained to perform that role?

Priorities For A “Sub-Compact” Concealed Carry Pistol

  This article in a direct response to a really good student who is struggling with her first concealed carry purchase.  She’s sharp enough to just not copy what I or others do.. and instead to think this out for herself while still asking really good questions.  Feel free to offer “Sarah” your opinion in the comments section, ESPECIALLY if different from my own.   I hope you find this useful.   Steve   Sarah –   I ran across this test today while going through my normal reading.. It’s a Guns and Ammo test comparing 10 of the most popular single stack 9mm pistols. Keep in mind, this article is a teaser so you’ll go out and buy their actual magazine, but there’s still a lot there. The most valuable part of this test is the video. Watch it through to the end.               In my mind, which is based on my experience, I prioritize a sub-compact carry gun in this order:   a) The cartridge must absolutely be on the FBI’s lis ...

THE BEST EAR PROTECTION MONEY CAN BUY! MOLDABLE EAR PROTECTION.

Pure heaven! It didn't matter if I was in a Bradley, a C-131, or even the Whale from a carrier deck, they worked way better than anything else available. And because they were so small you could carry them in your pocket and the string allowed you to loop them around your neck unseen.

10 Things I’ve Noticed At Ranges That Hurt Those Who Conceal & Carry

You might not believe this but it’s true. A full 60% of the guns students bring to my concealed carry classes, have at least one malfunction during the very short 30 round qualification test. Wow, 60%. How can you reconcile that with carrying concealed? It’s like driving a car whose brakes fail 60% of the time. Or an airplane whose motor fails 60% of the time.
