    But, are you making an investment in your training? The law enforcement members on this site get plenty, I suggest you spend the time, money, and effort to get professional training. Tactical handgun (levels I,II, and III), then tactical or precision rifle. For smoothbore fans, combat shotgun.

    You need to find a firearm training instructor in your area.

    It's fun to pop off rounds in the hills, but I cannot overemphasize the benefits of real training.

    Ask ANY of our active duty personnel or Vets on this site.

    My instructor.

    I agree 100%. I'd have to say I'm a better precision shooter than anyone can train into me after my Army training. Only practice will improve my shooting now with rifles at long distances.

    The CQB/pistol stuff I'd LOVE to get to take one day.

    That Army BS is for the birds compared to the Corps or what we have in OK for LEO's.

    Hmmm, only 2 responses.

    Reality check time guys! Just because you own a firearm does not mean you know how to use it.

    Check this out. clicky

    I completely agree, excessive training is a major part of the gun-owner responsibility.

    I'm trying to get my dad to hook me up with some of the state trooper trainers (he has some trooper connections). I'm kind of stalled on any training while waiting for my permit though...

    10-4, you and I will be "waiting" for a permit from the elitist Sherrif's in our States for a very long time indeed.

    Ummm.. I just got back from putting about 50 hand loaded rounds downrange.Was out at the range at the crack of dawn. Usually takes me a couple of hours to go thru that much ammo in my 308. I can drive tacks at 300 yards. Just getting in practice for deer season. One Shot One Kill.
    Training never stops. I feel one with my weapon again.

    You might think so, but I personally feel that once you're beyond the basics (breathing, body position, etc) the rest of it takes a lot of practice.

    yeah, what he said. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif I tend to not be very interested in training programs... cause I was Marine Infantry. but for peeps who havent been active duty or who wanna use types of weapons they didnt use while in the service, training is definitely a good idea. No one "knows it all".

    As soon as I turn 21 (6 months from now) I plan on buying my 1st handgun. Probably a Glock 21 or USP .40 then enroll in a tactical program to help with my future Federal LE plans /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I have never had formal handgun training so I'd say that I definitely could benefit from that. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
