CCW Class, 11-05-05

The goal of the Basic Pistol Course is to ensure that the students can safely load, unload, and reload their pistol, however I require that reloading can be preformed from positions other than just standing…this makes for some interesting observations by the students and also it adds some realism to the training day.

What sometimes seems like mundane or routine exercises under "normal" conditions can become difficult and taxing by having to change to a position other than standing.

Consider training under as many conditions as your imagination will allow. Can you perform reloads and magazine changes in the dark? Try manipulating your weapon while holding a flashlight also! This shooter uses a S&W .357 magnum…and quite well too.

This woman shoots while on the move with a S&W 9mm. It’s great to see more and more women taking charge of their own personal security and becoming involved in self defense handgun training. These students are professional, intelligent and are very prepared for their training. They've done extensive research on this subject and usually pepper me with a barrage of questions regarding tactics, and equipment. It's a great way to keep me on my toes also.
