Concealed weapons class and tactical training...

Concealed weapons class and tactical training...

Thanks for reading our blog, find more information here about our concealed weapons training

Nowadays, life is unfortunately rough. Bad things happen when and where we least expect them to happen. Criminals are opportunistic and strike when our defenses are down. By closely whatching what's going on around us, we can typically avoid confrontations and other trouble. However, sometimes trouble targets us and these are the unexpected moments we need to be prepared for. 

Carrying a firearm isn't by any means any guarantee whatsoever to remaining safe. Carrying a firearm is the only the means to a last resort, a last ditch effort to stay alive in a critical incident.

Critical incidents happen quickly and without warning, how can we prepare ourselves for such an incident? Practice, practice and more practice. Repetition builds muscle memory, it takes about 1000 repetiotions to build muscle memory. Practice slow, slow is smooth and smooth is fast. Practice the right way, don't go by what someone said is correct, ask them to substantiate what they've said and proove to you that it works. If they can, then that's what to practice because it's been proven to work and is easy to employ under stress where fine motor skills fly out the window.

God forbid the day comes you feel you're life's in such imminent danger that you feel you need ot draw, aim and press the trigger to stay alive. Sould it one day come, be prepared to remain alive and solve the problem expediciously and effectively.

In closing, a firearm isn't the answer, it isn't the solution, its only a last resort to remain alive. Learn to use the tool you've selected to defend yourself with in an effective manner.

Train, train hard and often but most of all, train safe.

concealed weapon fire arms safety


concealed weapons miami license2carry class miamiStoring firearms safely and securely at home is paramount. Firearms are mischievous mechanical devices that require full adult supervision. Firearms love to roam and fall into strange hands who don't know how to handle them properly. This is the reason firearms must be kept in a safe and secure manner. Think of a firearm as your pet Black Mamba, only you and a handful of people know to truly handle the snake in a safe and proper manner. If someone one other than yourself or someone from that handful of people who truly knew what they were doing we're to handle the snake, what's the likelihood something would go wrong very quickly? 

Firearms should be stored unloaded in a proper and secure safe. If a proper and secure safe isn't a license2carry 

viable option, properly securing firearms safely in other ways is still fully possible. Cable locks, trigger locks, lockable cases and even a simple padlock through the frame of a revolver turns it completely inoperable. There's many ways of securing firearms in a safe manner, there is absolutely no validated excuse not to do so.

Ammunition should also be safely secured in a different location, away from all safely secured firearms. Yes, ammunition is just as mischievous as firearms and requires adult supervision just as much as unloaded firearms. Ammunition that is safely maintained in a separate location simply cannot magically, grow legs and make it into a firearm. license2carry 

However, firearms can be maintained in a loaded and charged condition, only if the firearm is secured in a holster and on your person where you're in direct control of the firearm. Direct firearm supervision that is under your direct control keeps firearms well behaved. This is equivalent to keeping a viscous dog on a very short leash. license2carry 

Firearms can also be maintained in a loaded and charged condition, if the firearm is again, under your direct control such as in a safe where only you have direct access to the firearm. This is the equivalent of keeping your Pet Black Mamba in a secure container that only you have direct control and access to opening and handling the snake. license2carry

Firearm training differs greatly depending on who you ask. Everyone has a preferred teaching method and that's perfectly acceptable, there more than one way to accomplish a goal. However, always ask yourself, "will this work for me in a real world scenario?" If it takes too much effort to employ what you've learned, then no, it's not going to work for you.

Personally, what I teach, I can substantiate by providing several real working examples that my students can closely relate to. If my students can easily and consistently replicate what they've been taught, I've done my job correctly. However, if my students were to find any training technique to be non-intuative and difficult to employ in a non-critical situation, then what I've taught them wouldn't really work in a real world situation where fine motor skills fly out the window.

My job is to break down the elements of an action in such a way that it's easily comprehendible and consistently employed in an intuitive manner.

I train often and attend industry seminars to keep up on industry standards to make sure I can provide all my students the very best firearm training curriculum offered.
