HOW CAN YOU BE SURE YOU ARE ALWAYS READY TO CARRY CONCEALED?

19 October 2017 by Online Carry Training

For those who have completed their basic firearms safety training, it can be easy to assume that you’ve done everything you need to do to carry a concealed weapon.  But have you?  There is so much more to carrying a concealed firearm than getting a permit and completing firearms safety training.

Staying up-to-date on your training is just as important as getting your permit. If you were faced with a real life situation in which you had to defend yourself and actually fire your weapon, are you prepared to do that? Many people are not. While you do have a concealed carry permit and you have been trained in how to properly and safely handle a firearm, you probably have not received training in how to confront your attacker.

Over Time you might remember the basics of your initial concealed carry training, but have you perfected your shooting technique?  One of the best ways to maintain and continually improve your technique is to practice the essentials at home with an unloaded pistol.  This includes practicing your stance, draw, grip, aim and squeeze, in addition to becoming more acclimated to the feel of a firearm and building your confidence throughout the entire process.

It’s essential to continually practice what you’ve learned in the classroom.  You never know when those skills will be put to the test, so here are a few ways to keep yourself ready.

Enroll yourself in some refresher courses to improve your methods and techniques. You should also undergo new training if you owned a shotgun or rifle before and have plans of switching to a handgun. As much as possible, attend a refresher course and key topics training once a year. They will increase your preparedness and ability to respond to high stress environments.

It is important to use the carry pistol and ammo that you own during training and practice. How you perform during practice will affect the way you will react on defensive situations and combat encounters. If you are very familiar with your own gun, ammo, holster and other things that you will use, you can successfully handle them and you will not have so much trouble during an encounter.

Going to the shooting range is a great way to hone your firing skills. Have a scheduled monthly shooting session ahead of time to make sure that you will be prepared for violent encounters.

Dry firingzat home can be of help as well, especially if you do not have enough time to go to the range on a regular basis. Snap caps must be used at home, and your gun must be unloaded. Skills that you could practice at home include grip and trigger control, reloading of magazines, dealing with gun malfunctions, aiming and alignment.

Follow these helpful tips and you should always be prepared to carry concealed.
