Let’s not fall into the trap of thinking that we are better trained than the bad guys. Criminals don’t really have a lot to do, so they have time to hone their predatory skills.

Recent information from the FBI shows that criminal predators are seeking out and participating in pistol training. Not only do they have training, they have experience. Some of these bad guys have been involved in five or more gunfights before they are finally caught. Good people typically don’t have that much experience. So if you think that a nice gun and a concealed carry permit mean you are ready to take on the world, think again. You need more training. Your enemy is training. Why are you not?

What Are You Going to Do About It?

You can’t count on your concealed carry permit or a single shooting class to ensure you are ready to face a predator. Get more training. Practice more often.
