Practice Positions

Practice shooting in awkward conditions…sitting in a chair or lying on the floor or lying on your side are a few examples. While going to the range and standing there and shooting at stationary targets is fun, it really doesn’t prepare you for what you will probably encounter on a defensive situation. You will probably be surprised (the bad guy isn’t liable to attack if he knows you are ready for him) and off balance. And winter is coming…get out here and shoot in the cold, wearing your warm heavy clothing. You’ll be surprised how awkward it is trying to draw your handgun while wearing gloves and while you are covered with several layers of clothing. And while you are at it, practice shooting with cold hands as well. Get out and practice in the ‘less than ideal conditions.’
