CCW Practice?
« on: November 30, 2008, 11:16:14 am »
What do you guys do to "practice" and refine your gun carrying skill?

I read Tam's blog often, and she talks about reloading drills with speedloaders with her J frame, and that made me think.  I carry my gun pretty much everywhere, and at the range I can put holes in the paper right where I want them at conversational distance.  Outside of that, I don't really "practice" much.

What can you guys recommend?  Anybody have personal drills that work, or a site I could read up on?  I'd like to improve past the point of "Well, I have the gun on me.."

    I've used classifiers from and, available from their websites. When those become repetitive and boring, many of the major matches show their courses of fire and results online. Check out the match results pages for the above organizations.
    Hopefully you have a range that will allow setting up multiple targets, drawing from the holster and rapid fire. Unfortunately, many do not.

    If your range doesn't allow this, maybe using the training drills from the fbi, usmarshalls, 'etc, on one target would be more agreeable. These can be easily found via good old google.

    Or use airsoft. Good practice and set up whatever you want in the privacy of home.

    Here's a few setups to try:

    Hope this helps some.

    Practice your draw stroke, from conceilment, religiously.  Get it down so you can do it while moving, fast.  On a good day I can get my first shot to break right at 1.0 sec.
    Train hard, fight easy.
