Training & Non-Compliance with Anti-Gun Laws

This past weekend I hit the range over at KR Training for Defensive Pistol Skills 2, Advanced Training 2 Scenarios, and Low Light Shooting 1. All classes focused on improving conceal carry competency. It was a lot of fun, especially Advanced Training 2 Scenarios, which involved running through a shoot house and even shooting through an interactive simulator provided by Immersive Training Solutions. The simulator was quite fun and educational.

When running through actual scenarios with lots of things going on, shooting needs to be natural. If you have to think about a good trigger pull, you won’t be thinking about it during a defensive gun use. But if you have the fundamentals of marksmanship absolutely nailed into you, your marksmanship will just… work and that frees up mental capacity in order to handle the scenario.

While we’re talking about defensive gun use, let’s talk about the importance of picking the right moment to draw a gun.
