Front Sight Mail Bag: Comfortably Carrying Concealed
July 12th, 2011
I wanted to thank you for an excellent training session! I attended the 4 Day Defensive Handgun course with my 16 year old son and we had a great time and learned continuously over the 4 day period. I chose to attend for two primary reasons. One, I have a CCW and carry on a daily basis and knew I needed additional training or as your classroom lecture said – I was consciously incompetent. Two, I wanted my son to get excellent training in the safe handling and use of firearms from someone other than myself (at 16 sometimes dad is not the best teacher). Even though I had prior military experience many years ago, I was glad the course started at the most basic level and progressed quickly. Safety was always the primary focus of the instructors (who I can not say enough about)! Patti Walker was the Rangemaster for our course and Mr Wills and Attiles assisted. All three instructors were very professional, skilled with their weapons, and worked with everyone on the range individually on the firing line to ensure we were performing as we were being instructed. This one-on-one instruction allowed us to master the skills being presented to us. They were always positive in their critiques-over four days I never saw them demean anyone, but always encouraged everyone to meet their potential. After four days of training my son’s skills improved exponentially and his shot groups at all ranges by the fourth day were very tight. As for me, I feel much more comfortable carrying my concealed weapon on a daily basis knowing that I have the skills necessary that, God forbid, I should ever have to defend myself or my family. Thank you again for an excellent week of training.
