“You don’t know what you don’t know.”
Why training is so important.
I’ve had the privilege of being able to professionally train with both rifle and pistol — formally at Gunsite Academy (gunsite.com) in Paulden, Arizona, and at Close Quarters Tactical (cqtusa.com) in Shelby Township, Michigan. Informally, I also enjoy regular interaction with law enforcement officers who are glad to pass along insights they’ve gleaned from their training opportunities. Just to be up front, when it comes to firearms, I’m not a professional. I’m as civilian like anyone else, but I’ve enjoyed having professionals show me how to properly use these tools. With that, here are my top five training tips.
