Our recently held concealed defensive handgun class taught CCW permit holders how to use their weapon effectively. Carrying a gun for self-defense is no small task. It's a pain in the butt - and that's before you ever have to pull the trigger.
Selecting the right weapon (smaller is rarely better), the right holster, and what to wear are all pieces of the puzzle that need to be considered. And even then, the only way to use your pistol effectively is to train with it and make sure your entire set up works.
Great job students! The class covered shooting from concealment in a variety of real-world positions and built some of those fundamental skills required to shoot accurately.
