“Let’s talk shooting for a minute. I spent this last weekend taking a couple of classes through Defenders USA. I don’t like shooting; let’s just get that out of the way right now. It’s not that I hate it, I simply don’t love it. I don’t like when I miss; it sends me into a practical panic when I mess up. (Never fear, that’s not the only thing that I don’t like to mess up: I’m a walking panic attack. 😉😆)
However, having made the decision to carry a firearm for my protection and the protection of others, it is MY responsibility to train with said firearm. It is MY responsibility to know how to shoot, when to shoot, and where every one of my rounds goes. Simply carrying a gun without training does not make me cool; it quite honestly makes me an absolute moron. If I don’t know what I’m doing, then why am I even carrying? I am more of a danger than a help at that point.
All this to say: I implore you all- if you’re going to make the decision to exercise your rights (and by all means, you should) you NEED to have good quality training. I believe it’s quite irresponsible to not. If I can do this, every single person out there can. I don’t want to do an all day class- it’s not my idea of fun. My idea of fun is sitting on my couch with a good book and being left alone. 🤷♀️ But guess what? Learning to be efficient with a handgun is responsible. It’s what we should all strive to be. If you also would love to get some good, high quality training, you absolutely need to go to Adam Winch with Defenders USA. He makes it easy to learn and he makes it fun and of course he and his family are just absolutely incredible people. I thoroughly enjoyed this weekend once I got out of MY head and found out that sometimes it’s okay to not be perfect; keep practicing and you will get there. Like I said, if I can do this, you absolutely can! Get your training!!!!”
