Gun training on your busy schedule? It’s hard to find time to do all the things in life that you want to get done. We have a solution to your gun training woes. Many of our students love our weekday and evening hours set aside for people who wish to get the training they need but don’t want to give up that precious weekend. The reason we can offer this gun training is that we have our own classroom and have shooting privileges at the only 10 lane indoor shooting range in Southern Colorado.

Many of our students rave about how easy it was for them to get the gun training they wanted and how we made the times and dates very accessible. Just tell us what Gun Training you would like to have and what date works for you and your friends and will try to make it happen. We find that people who have no gun handling experience do great in our class. We suggest you take the class before you buy a handgun. Many students who run out and buy a gun for the class are disappointed with their purchase. You will learn in class which gun is right for you.

-Let us know what works for you
-Bring some friends/or not
-Pick a date and time

Gun Safety is InfectiousGun Safety is Infectious

It was a normal Wednesday.  I had a call the night before by a female who had the day off and wanted to get some firearm training, possibly leading to a concealed carry permit. We started class in my normal fashion doing some paperwork and talking about places of employment and my house rules. We then came to the point where I check the guns.  You know, no live ammunition in the classroom. I have always had people show me that the gun they have with them in class is safe and unloaded and that they have no ammo in their possession.  This gives me a chance to see them handle the gun and gives me a clue as to what knowledge or bad habits they might have.  I took her and the newly acquired compact semi-auto handgun in the box to the designated safe location for such activity and when she took it out, it had a trigger lock on it. We talked about the lock and the fact that she had kids at home while she was removing the lock.  I reminded her of the safe direction as she got the gun out, dropped the magazine, racked the slide and a big shiny 9mm (JHP) hollowpoint flew out of the ejection port and my jaw dropped.  Yes, I have seen this before, but to be honest I really did not expect it this time.  The look on my face had to be priceless.  She said, “I didn’t know that was in there”.  So we talked about how it happened.  Apparently someone other than her checked the gun to see if it was loaded.  She stated she never keeps one in the chamber in storage, just a full magazine and that is how she stores the firearm. So by not dropping the magazine first, whoever it was loaded a round and then the trigger lock was installed. When she saw my instructions for class she knew not to bring any ammo in the classroom, so she took the magazine out of the locked gun and proceeded to come to class with the spare empty magazine.

Gun Safety is Infectious-Infect everyone you know

Remember to teach people to visually and physically inspect the place the round fires from in all guns.  This is a primary skill that everyone needs to learn.  Guns without slide locks are tougher to be safe with, they just take more care. Also, always check a gun yourself.  Do not rely on others as they may not know how to do it properly either (gun stores, gunshows).  In addition, it amazes me the number of people who do not know step number one in unloading or clearing a handgun is to remove the ammunition supply.  I was very lucky this was a double action handgun with a lengthy trigger pull and she was not touching the trigger as she cleared her gun as so many students do in my primary classes.  I have actually been witness to people clearing the handgun in their automobile before coming into the building for class, and I cringe every time I think about the ND (negligent discharge) not AD (accidental discharge) that could happen in my parking lot. Gun safety is the most important aspect of gun training.  It is the foundation of everything we teach. Everyone at one time or another shows another person how to operate a firearm.  It could be a spouse or a child, it might be a friend or a stranger.  Knowledge is infectious and when it comes to gun safety infect everyone you know.

Colorado Concealed Carry

Right now  in our community and all over the nation there seems to be an increase in violent activity especially in the home. You and your family’s safety are at risk more now than ever before.  Many states have what is known as a castle doctrine, basically the right to protect your castle. In Colorado they call it the Make My Day Law. You have the right to protect yourself and your family from harm, and in that law you are given special protection from criminal and civil liability.  Please take the time to understand how to protect your family and have a plan of action so that your entire family knows what to do when the proverbial  S#!T hits the fan.

 

Rule #1…….don’t answer the door in the middle of the night….
Are you kidding me… I should not even have to say this.  People coming to your house late at night should call in advance and let someone know they are coming.

Rule #2…… the statute says uninvited entry….
Don’t help them out by letting them in.

Rule #3…..don’t ever go outside with a gun …..
Your protected under the statute in your home not on your front lawn or in your backyard

Rule#4….your garage is part of your home…….
If your garage is attached to your home it is part of your home. Let the Police handle that guy who is out in your garage. Remember if you confront someone and they decide not to comply with your commands you may have to shoot them.

Rule #5….shooting someone is always ugly…….
Remember that shooting someone always comes with consequences. Loss of employment, Loss of friends, time from work, loss of money from legal defense, and dealing with that fact that you had to do this to another human being.

gun safetyThe most important safety rule is and always will be the NRA’s first rule of gun safety. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. If you never followed any other gun safety rule this would be the one to burn into your vast cranial space. All the other rules are important but this one takes care of all the others.

Gun Safety is your Responsibility

Safety rule #2 always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot ??  Let’s say you slipped for a moment and violated rule number 2 if you have followed rule number 1 you most likely will not injure anyone or destroy any property that you did not intend. You have just had an embarrassing gun safety moment. You can live with a little embarrassment from time to time, but can you live with injuring or even killing an unintended victim.

Remember Gun Safety is contagious

Gun Safety and safe gun handling are contagious you teach someone the safe way, and they teach someone the safe way, and pretty soon everyone has caught the disease. Safe Gun handling is a disease and only you have the cure.

In my last couple tours as range safety officer at Pueblo Municipal Shooters, I noticed that most people without some type of current gun safety training tend to violate the muzzle direction rule. In my training sessions, I always do a little pre-test on gun safety and loading/unloading and more times than not a trainee will violate either the muzzle direction or the finger on the trigger rule. These gun safety rules are without question the most important things you can understand about gun safety.
