◾Priority One will always come before Priority Two, Three, Four, Five, etc.. Students do not come to my class to get shot, nor do they come to learn habits or techniques that will get them hurt/shot subsequent to the class, nor do they come to learn habits or techniques half-way which have the potential to get them hurt/shot if they don’t learn and understand the full topic. For the rest of this short article we will refer to the Priority One Safety tenant as “The Prime Directive.” Star Trek fans might chuckle at the name.

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.

I'm not saying you need to be Shooter Tim The Big Bad Range Guy. You just need to be the guy who spends enough time at the range to keep your skills within reason. For many of us this is once a month. One hour, one day a month. And don't forget to dry fire. For every hour of range practice you should be putting in 2-3 hours of dry fire.

The Current Landscape Of The M1911 Pistol and Tactical Training

It’s everything, years on patrol in of one California’s largest cities, decades of military experience, years as a gun smith, and of course years spent training others and carrying concealed in many states. The landscape as changed and I’m making sure I change along with it.
