Conceal Carry Draw From the Holster Training

When you make a choice to conceal carry a gun it is important to get proper draw from the holster training for conceal carry and practice so you can handle your equipment safely and effectively. One area usually missing is learning to draw from your conceal carry holster.

Learn a Proper Efficient Draw

When you draw properly, it can be the difference between life and death. During this class, you will learn and practice the steps needed to draw properly from a conceal carry holster. With practice, you will master the steps for a draw from the holster and combine them into one fluid motion. The draw from the holster training is one of the most important aspects of conceal carry and handgun self-defense. The instructor for the seminar is Rick Sindeband. Rick has many years of experience with firearms and is certified to teach this skill.

Don’t Be Fooled

Only one percent of all firearms instructors are actually certified to teach an individual proper and efficient draw from the holster. One of the key components is the safety aspect. There are many accidents that happen from improper equipment or poor techniques. Watching a video on youtube is not enough. A qualified instructor needs to watch and guide you through the process because you can’t see yourself making mistakes.

Many of the incidents you have seen nationally would have turned out much better for everyone involved had the person been trained properly. If you are on your church security team or just protecting your family. Get the training that saves lives.

Choosing a defensive firearmChoosing a Defensive Firearm for a Carry Gun
By: Jeff Belanger, Instructor,Gunsmith

Choosing a Defensive Firearm

As an instructor I’m not a big fan of the snub nosed .38 special revolver as a defensive firearm for new shooters. A few people have written back asking what I do think a good choice would be. Since it’s never as simple as saying “Gun X” is the must have carry gun. I’ll explain my criteria when shopping for a new defensive firearm and hopefully something I write will help you when you’re making your next selection. The first question I ask myself is “What is the firearm’s primary purpose?”. If I’m shopping for a gun to always have with me at all times (the gun I carry when I don’t want to carry a gun), size and concealability will be more important to me than caliber. Once I know what I’m looking for, I’ll do some research and figure out who is making something which meets my criteria. Honestly, I do a lot of my weeding out right here. Just like lots of people who wouldn’t ever drive a certain make of car, there are firearms manufacturers out there whose products have always seemed substandard to me or caused me nothing but grief. As a gunsmith, if a certain gun is something I see in the shop quite a bit I guarantee you I wouldn’t bet my life on  I’ll read internet reviews and see what people have to say about something, and then I’ll head off to the gun stores so I can actually hold the firearms I’m considering.

No More Than 5 Defensive Firearm Choices

Typically, my list of prospective choices is no more than 5 guns at this point. Keeping with my pocket pistol example, maybe I’ll find one that’s single action only. Since I know I’m not comfortable carrying a cocked gun in my pants pocket- I’ll take that off the list right now. Maybe the next one I look at is too small (or too large) for my needs- that’ll come off my list too. After familiarizing myself with the remaining defensive firearms and their controls, I’ll evaluate my two most important criteria next. “Does it point naturally?” and “Can I work it?” Holding the gun in my shooting grasp I’ll look at something (remember your safety rules here!) and bring the gun up as if to shoot. I then check to see if the sights have naturally aligned on the target or if I need to make an adjustment. I’II do this a few times to see if the gun is pointing where my brain thinks it should be. My goal here is not to find a gun that I can aim, but to find the gun that aims itself for the ones that do stay very high on my diminishing list of choices. “Can I work it?” is probably the most important aspect to consider- especially for women. You need to make sure you can manipulate the defensive firearm in every way possible. Ask yourself- Am I strong enough to rack the slide, lock the slide back? Can I release the magazine easily? If a revolver- am I strong enough to pull the trigger? etc. The answers will be different for each individual, and only the actual shooter can answer them. You’ll need to do all these things to load/unload your firearm, clear malfunctions, and operate it competently. If you’re lucky enough to have more than one choice left at this point, I would next consider accessories and caliber. It does you no good to have a carry pistol nobody makes a holster for or a semi-auto with magazines that are impossible to find. As to caliber, remember that smaller/lighter guns will always recoil more than a larger heavier gun in the same caliber. Generally, I always want the largest caliber I can comfortably handle when shooting, but this is never a deal breaker for me. The .380 I actually have with me when I need it will always be more effective than the .45 I left at home. Lastly, I try not to let price become a determining factor in choosing a defensive firearm.

Defensive Firearm at a Discount

If you wouldn’t buy a discount parachute at a garage sale, you shouldn’t treat your defensive firearm purchase any differently. I don’t know anyone who would consent to being maimed or killed for a couple hundred dollars, but people constantly take that risk when they stand at the gun counter and choose the discount budget brand gun which may not work when they need it most. This is something you are literally going to bet your life on if the time ever comes, treat your purchase with the seriousness it warrants. Be safe shoot straight and have fun out there!!

intermediate handgun trainingIntermediate Handgun Training in Pueblo Colorado

For Immediate Release: Have Gun Will Train Colorado’s “Intermediate Handgun and Personal Defense Class.” A carefully developed handgun training course consisting of practical pistol shooting theory and practice, this  handgun training class is designed for intermediate students and is now available in Pueblo Colorado.  Every effort is made to provide a comfortable learning environment and experience for everyone. It is fun, informative and  practical. Colorado gun laws, self defense tactics, awareness, draw and presentation techniques, movement to and from cover, reloading (tactical exchange vs stress reload), multiple targets and use of lights are covered. We also cover such topics as shooting techniques, skill, firearm presentation, and carry options, but, and just as important, we will spend a significant amount of time on when to shoot and when not to shoot. These classes will consist of seven 2-2.5 hour blocks of handgun training and will be enjoyable and informative, but strict emphasis will be placed on safety at all times.

Four very important gun rules which we subscribe to very religiously and will follow to the letter are:

1. Always treat all guns as if they are loaded.

2. Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.

3. Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

4. Always be certain of your target.

Intermediate Handgun Training has never been easier

All firearms are to be brought to class unloaded. No live ammo is allowed in the class room. Classes will run approximately 2-2.5 hours each and will be held as students schedule these classes. There will be range sessions and students will need to supply their own eye and ear protection,a firearm, holster, gun belt, additional maga­zines or speed loaders), and ammunition. We can special order tactical flashlights, at reasonable prices.

If you have a concealed carry permit and are ready for the next step in your training this is the handgun training class for you. You will be able to build your skills based on many blocks of carefully designed training, and you will not have to give up an entire weekend or travel long distances to do so. This handgun training is not a beginning handgun training course.

colored circle gun training target

Don’t Put Off That Gun Training

You may have thought about getting some gun training this year because you feel that you need to have some education in the do’s and don’ts of concealed carry. Maybe you thought about getting some gun training about firearm safety because you feel uneasy about your gun and your ability to handle it safely. Sometimes what you need is just to take a local advanced gun training skills class and  get some new gun training ideas so that you have some new ideas about how to train.

Gun Training Can Be Serious Fun

Changing the way you train with new gun training ideas is one way you keep interested in your training routine. Be creative, take someone with you so you can have a training partner. One easy routine you and your partner can do is the “colored circle target”. Any version of this target works.  Load 5 rounds, start at the ready position, and have your partner call out the colors in random order. One shot at each color or letter. You can mix it up any way you want. You can also use different shapes i.e. (triangle,box,circle,numbers) and different size circles. Try running a shot timer.  Remember to keep your target low enough so that you are not shooting at the ceiling ( your RANGE SAFETY OFFICER will appreciate that). You can have a lot of serious gun training fun with these ideas.

Gun Control SkillsAiming your handgun is one of the gun control skills you must acquire to be able to hit the target and of course protect yourself in a self protection encounter. Aiming your handgun is a basic part of gun control skills and its use,  also a very important safety aspect of handling a firearm i.e.,muzzle direction. The sights are located on top of the barrel of your handgun. The front sight needs to be level with the top of the rear sight. Many types of sights are available on firearms today but the all serve the same purpose, to align the barrel of your firearm with your target so you can hit what you are aiming at. No matter which variety of sights your firearm has, the key skill is to keep your eyes focused on the front sight while aligned with the rear sight. The target should be slightly blurred and you should be focused on your front sight.

Gun Control Skills-Trigger Control

No one, not even the very best shots can hold a gun perfectly still. Trigger control and sight alignment go hand in hand and are the shooters best gun control skills. Most misplaced shots are due to poor trigger control. Learn to take the slack out of your trigger and then press the trigger in a smooth action to break the shot. You will have more enjoyment from your shooting time when you are hitting the target.

Gun Control Skills

Remember the FBI report that says shot placement is more important when selecting a gun than caliber size.

Gun control skills will make you a better shot and give you greater self  protection.
