Are You Caught in the Concealled Carry Trap?

Have you fallen into the concealed carry trap? For States that require a concealed carry student to actually pass a skill test of some sort, the test is so incredibly simple it fails to prepare them for the reality of potential situations. Look at your current situation and level of training. Could you survive a self-defense or deadly force encounter in the real world? Take

The 6-second Church Test

Take the 6-second church test. Can you make a headshot in 6 seconds at 12 yards? This is based on what happened at the church in Texas recently where a member of the church security team stopped an active shooter in his church. The test is 1 headshot at 12 yards in 6 seconds, from concealment. It is best done cold…in other words no ‘warm-up’

January 2020

Welcome to 2020! I look forward to training/shooting with you all this year. Please let me know if there is some particular training you would like me to offer. Interesting Thought… Have you fallen into the concealed carry trap described in this article? Take a moment to read this article that I found on Facebook. There is a lot of truth to it.

1st Quarter Change of Schedule for 2020

Taking a Break… A Small Change in Scheduling… I will not be scheduling any regular monthly initial concealed carry classes for January, February or March 2020. This is historically a slow time of the year and I have a couple of other projects I am working on. Regular monthly classes will resume in April.

What Does Your License Say?

Looking back at this month’s Interesting Thought, whatever handguns and calibers you have on your license, you should be proficient with. In addition, you should certainly be proficient with the handgun you carry daily, or even if you only carry it occasionally. You’d be surprised how many people tell me they either don’t shoot much or haven’t shot since they say me in their last class

Upcoming Revolver Class

We are in the process of developing a Defensive Revolver Class. In addition to those who carry a revolver as a concealed weapon, this class is ideal for those who have Revolver on their concealed carry license but don’t shoot one very much, or don’t even have one. After all, if it’s on your license you should be proficient with it. Please let me know if

Practice When It’s Not Perfect

We all enjoy a nice day with good weather at the range, but what are we really learning? Practice in the rain sometimes, when it’s windy, in the snow, when it’s very hot, and when it’s cold. I just finished the Pecos Run and Gun event (a 5.5-mile loop with 8 shooting stops) and it rained on me the first mile. When I got to

Attention: New Method for Refresher Class

This Interesting Thought is going to be a bit different but is important none the less. I recently attended a meeting in Albuquerque at the Concealed Carry Unit to provide input to a curriculum the unit is developing. One of the topics discussed was the required 2-year Refresher class. Very soon the Concealed Carry Unit is going to start enforcing the guidelines for the Refresher.
