NRA Blended Learning – South Florida Firearm Training

Firearms Blog, Uncategorized October 17, 2014

 

Looking South Florida Firearm Training?

What is the benefit of having an NRA certified instructor teach my pistol training class?

Improvements to the NRA firearms training cirurricula have been steady throughout the years, starting with the development of student handbooks. NRA’s handbooks first contained hand-drawn images and have since evolved into black-and-white photographs and, more recently, high-resolution color photos. NRA’s course lesson plans have developed similarly, establishing learning objectives and helping instructors with time management. Overhead slides and PowerPoint presentations have allowed students to read information projected on a screen as the instructor taught the material. NRA created a warehouse and distribution system for easy ordering of the materials needed for each course, and NRAInstructors.org has become an exclusive tool for NRA Instructors to market their courses to students and renewing their ratings from the NRA.

The next innovation in firearms training is now upon us — blended learning. The blended learning teaching method combines an e-Learning student interface with instructor training and evaluation. The e-Learning portion will cover the curriculum that is currently being taught from the student handbook, and NRA Instructors will cover the hands-on firearm portions of the course, shooting exercises, the shooting qualification and make the final evaluation of the student.

The blended learning method insures that each student receives course information in a consistent manner every time the course is given. In addition, students can now complete the classroom portion at their own pace, on their own schedule. This allows the instructor to focus on student education, safety and skills with a firearm. NRA Instructors will still determine which students have earned their certificates and which students need more training. NRA’s goal is to always be the standard when it comes to firearms safety, training and marksmanship. Blended learning is just another step in delivering on that standard.

image

image

I won’t be able to schedule my training because students have to complete a separate classroom segment.

NRA-Training-Fact
Instructors will still schedule the firearm segment classes but students will now have flexibility to complete the e-Learning classroom segment based on their schedule. Instructors will be able to schedule the firearm segment of each course in two ways. The first is on-demand, as students complete the e-Learning classroom segment. The second is to establish a date for the firearm segment and inform students that they will not be able to complete this without having successfully completed the e-Learning classroom segment in advance.

image
Students who do not have computers or internet access will not be able to get training.
NRA-Training-Fact
Access to computers is widely available at public libraries in both rural and urban centers all over the country. The e-Learning classroom segment of the course will also be available using a mobile device such as a smartphone or a tablet. If the student is still unable to locate a computer, smartphone, or tablet, the instructor could secure access to one of these devices for them.

image
The e-Learning classroom segment cannot be done in a group setting.
NRA-Training-Fact
NRA Instructors who want to do so can provide the necessary equipment for each student to complete the e-Learning classroom segment as a group.

image
The e-Learning classroom segment is just a video the students watch.

NRA-Training-Fact
This e-Learning classroom segment is a learning management system that integrates the course content with interactive applications, lecture, animation, and review questions, which culminate in a final examination. The learning management system tracks students’ progress throughout the course, records, and missed exam answers. It provides materials for missed questions, and provides the instructor with information about the student before the firearm segment of the course.

image
The blended learning course will be like the current Range Safety Officer course.

NRA-Training-Fact
The basic blended learning courses will be completely different, featuring both e-Learning classroom segment and an Instructor-led training segment.

image
Students who live in states that don’t recognize e-Learning classes for concealed carry permits won’t be able to get one.

NRA-Training-Fact
This is NOT an e-Learning course, it is a blended learning course. Most states use the technique for delivering Hunter Education and Drivers Education. A live instructor is not required to show students the basic parts of a firearm, but with the blended learning system, a live instructor will ALWAYS have the final say as to when a student passes the basic course.
I will get fewer students because they have to go through an e-Learning class first.

image
The ability for students to take the e-Learning classroom segment at any time, day or night, weekday or weekend, will increase the pool of students for you to evaluate and instruct. You will no longer need to rent a classroom where you will spend all of your day.

NRA-Training-Fact
NRA Instructors will not have the ability to price their own classes or determine if a student passes the course.
Instructors will still decide on the fee schedule, pre-range process and ultimately issue the NRA certificate. Students will not receive a certificate of completion for the NRA course until the instructor validates the student’s knowledge, skills, and attitude.

image
Students will not be prepared for the Instructor-led training portion of the class.

NRA-Training-Fact
Even though the student has taken the e-Learning classroom segment already, NRA Instructors will have a process in place to ensure the student meets the standards for the live fire portion. This may include a safety test or shortened classroom review. As always, NRA is relying on NRA Instructors to ensure each student meets the requirements to earn certification.

Story: My Concealed Carry Firearm Saved My Life

Firearms Blog, Uncategorized August 25, 2014

florida concealed carry

Why Every American Should Carried a Concealed Firearm

“Why do you have to carry a gun?”

“What are you so afraid of?”

“You must be really paranoid?”

“If you pull your firearm, you must use it! are you ready to kill another human?”

These were some of the things I hear constantly from my Liberal friends. They live in their own bubble where the sexual assaults, rapes, and murders are just something you see on the nightly news, but could never happen to them and so they cannot understand why I have a Concealed Carry Firearm. I want to know that if god forbid I ever was confronted with one of these situations, I know I have a damn good chance of making it home that night. I choose to Carry a Concealed Firearm because I do not want to be one of those people on the 6:00 news that did make it home. They just don’t understand that criminals do not care who you are or what you have, some people in this world are just ruthless and will do anything to satisfy their evil desires.

My story is one of a woman traveling alone, in the middle of the day, on a rural highway and came up behind an older model, slow moving pickup truck with a middle aged man driving it. I noticed after a mile or two that he was making sexual gestures in his side mirror at me. So, the next opportunity I had to pass him, I did. Should be the end of that story, right? Well unfortunately it got much worse. Now he was tailgating me down the hill coming into town and now had my whole rear-view mirror to work with. He started taking off his shirt and looked to be touching himself. I was mortified to say the least. I blew through a yellow light and turned onto a busy highway and he stopped for the red light. I pulled into a gas station not far down the road because I needed to use the restroom and wanted to get something to drink. Not the best idea, looking back. I waited with my doors locked until I saw that he had moved on and passed me up. I had parked nose in facing the convenience store and he pulled in behind me and blocked my car in. This is when I grabbed my Concealed Carry Firearm a walther pk380 and had it ready to go. He came up to my door and reached for the handle only to see me holding my Concealed Carry Firearm in my hand and turning to aim at him. He just had to see the gun in my hands to send him scrambling back to his vehicle to hurry and drive away. I called in the plates to the police and it was all over with but I was on high alert for several days following. I have told my story countless times and about 70% of the time, someone will ignorantly say to me, “if you have to pull your firearm, you must use it!” I’m sorry but these people are very WRONG! In my case, I had several things working against my being able to shoot.

// ]]>

  1. He was at an angle next to my vehicle that I was not able to get a clear shot.
  2. Second, there were a lot of cars and people around and if I missed I could have hurt someone else who was not involved.
  3. Also, he was not carrying any kind of weapon to assault me with

You always have to consider the aftermath of shooting someone in self defense. If all things were working together, I was prepared to shoot but my situational awareness kicked in and it was not a good option. There are other instances of not shooting but being able to safely mediate a situation just by having your firearm in hand. I recently watched this video which started my train of thought on writing this piece. Not every situation where you are forced to pull a firearm needs to end in tragedy. Post by Urban Moxy – Concealed Carry Handbags The other example I can recall is the Clackamas mall shooting in Oregon a couple years ago. This was where I grew up so it hit very close to home and I visited the mall and paid my respects to the people who lost their lives on that tragic day. It could have been much worse than it turned out though. I think it was only reported locally that the shooter ended up killing himself because he saw a man had a pistol locked on him but was unable to shoot him because of all the people around and was not comfortable taking the shot at the risk of hurting another innocent person. The media didn’t spend very long on this story because it was very close to the Sandy Hook shooting but I think it was also because it had an outcome that didn’t agree with the anti-gun narrative. This man is the hero in my book! Concealed Carry

Video: How to Draw a Gun From a Holster? – One Hand Concealed Carry Draw – Concealed Holster Training Drills

Firearms Blog, Uncategorized June 27, 2014

how to draw a gun from a holster

How to Draw a Gun From a Holster? – One Hand Concealed Carry Draw – Concealed Holster Training Drills

Brent takes us through his process of how to draw a gun from a holster. His technique is always drawing his concealed weapon with one hand.

As the video will show, with practice this can be just as fast as a traditional two handed draw. Brent emphisizes the importance of training and practicing at the range using real life senarios. If you are not comfortable using live ammunition to practice drawing your firearm from a concealed carry holster, ALWAYS practice with your firearm unloaded to get the motion down before attempting to use live ammunition at the range. This is extremely important. Safety should always be at the forefront of any gun owner’s mind especially when carrying a firearm. As my last blog on “Choosing the best gun for concealed carry” states, the holster is just as important as the gun. Make sure your holster is the correct fit for your gun. Kydex is usually the best way to secure your firearm because it has some retention. Retention puts pressure on a area of the gun, usually the trigger gaurd to securly “snap” the gun into the holster. There should be just enough retention to securely “snap” the gun in place and keep it there, but not enough where you have to struggle to draw your firearm.

Always obey the firearms rules of safety when learning how to draw a gun from a holster which are:

  1. ALWAYS treat any firearm as if it were loaded.
  2. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
  3. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

Watch the video below by Brent to learn how to draw a gun from a holster correctly.

What is the best gun for concealed carry?

florida concealed carry

Concealed Carry: What is the best gun for concealed carry?

 

To determine what is the best gun for concealed carry you first have to look at the individual that will be carrying the firearm and ask yourself a couple of key questions:

  • How do you normally dress?
  • Do you always wear a belt?
  • Is your wardrobe tight fitting or loose?
  • How much experience do you have with firearms?

These are all questions that should be considered and addressed before searching the gun listings on Florida Gun Classifieds, to help you zero in on a specific gun to carry on a daily basis. Searching the Gun listings on Florida Gun Classifieds for guns for sale to find the best concealed carry firearm is a good way to find a gun that you will actually carry everyday, every night, everywhere you go. If you decide to do what I did when I first started carrying a firearm, to get the biggest, baddest gun with the most capacity and the largest caliber, I promise you that will probably last for about a month. You eventually will decide, “I’m just going down the street to the gas station, I’m not going to need it, ill just leave it in the safe.” and you’ll find any excuse not to bring the gun for the simple fact its too damn heavy and uncomfortable! Then you will be back searching the gun listings on Florida Gun Classifieds for guns for sale real quick. I learned my lesson on that one.

 

The best gun for concealed carry is a firearm that will feel like you are not carrying a gun, almost like your phone does in your pocket. The gun must be easily accessible and you must know the firearm inside and out. While searching the gun listings on Florida Gun Classifieds for guns for sale make sure you keep this in mind. One way to ensure you will be carrying correctly is to spend the money on a good quality holster. A holster should fit your specific firearm like a glove, covering the trigger guard completely. Weather you chose inside or outside the waist, the gun should be able to be drawn without any delay or obstruction. This goes back to the question about what type of clothes do you normally wear. If you wardrobe consists of jeans, a belt and loose fitting shirts, then an outside the pants holster will be the holster of choice. The outside the pants holster will always be more comfortable then an inside the waist holster. It will allow you to carry the firearm securely and also access the firearm quickly, while allowing you flexibility to do things such as get in and out of your car with ease, sit down comfortably without being stuck in the stomach and encourage you to carry more often than not. There are different versions of outside the pants holsters, and my favorite is a leather/kydex hybrid that securely holds the firearm, while providing the comfort of leather against the body.

If your wardrobe consists of mostly shorts without a belt, basketball shorts, t-shirts etc, then an inside the pants holster is probably the best choice. There are different versions of these available as well from leather, kydex, and also synthetic materials. My preference is a small leather or kydex IWB (inside the waistband) holster that covers the trigger guard completely. This will provide just enough material to securely hold the firearm while keeping the gun at a fingertips reach securely in place wherever you clip it. It should not move or slide around on your waist. While viewing the gun listings on Florida Gun Classifieds for your perfect concealed carry gun for sale, think about how you will be carrying the firearm before making a decision.

With any concealed firearm, training is an essential part of carrying. Without adequate practice drawing your firearm, the same gun you are concealing to protect yourself is essentially useless. The FBI statistics are that the average self defense shooting happens in under three seconds and consists of three shots. If you have to fumble to draw your firearm, you are too late. You should be able to draw your gun in under a second, and shoot at least two shots without aiming. This takes practice, especially to be accurate!  If you think buying a gun and sticking it in your pants will protect you from the bad guys, think again. Without adequate training your firearm is useless, and can even be used against you. You will find all kinds of guns for sale by viewing the gun listings on Florida Gun Classifieds. After purchasing a gun it is essential that you either practice with that firearm until you can draw, shoot and re-holster without hesitation.

I laugh at people that tell me they do not carry a round in the chamber, and then try to educate them on the reality that you will not have time to rack the slide in a real life self defense situation. If you do have time to rack the slide and draw down on someone, is it really an IMMEDIATE THREAT? Think about this: Imagine your life is in imminent danger and there is a camera surveilling the area. Your attacker approaches and you draw your firearm, hold it up, rack the slide, draw down on your attacker and shoot. Think about how that would look on the camera or how it would look to a jury. Although you might be legally justified, it looks horrible and a anti-gun prosecutor would try to take you down. Now the same situation with a round already chambered. You pull your firearm and shoot. Can you see how each scenario looks to an average person or juror with little or no firearm experience?

The best way to select a concealed carry firearm from the gun listings on Florida Gun Classifieds is to find a gun for sale that fits your wardrobe, obtain a proper holster and get professional training to build your skills. This is the key to concealed carry to encourage you to carry 100% of the time comfortably and ready for the unthinkable.
