Whether you’re learning how to handle a gun for the first time, preparing for a concealed carry certification, or only need a little refresher, some firearm training can be very beneficial. You can learn some best practices on how to handle your gun, basic terminology, basic gun safety, and more. Here are three tips on how to get the most out of your firearm training.
- Consider your instructor carefully: Before even scheduling your firearm training course, you will want to choose the best possible instructor. It’s best to find someone who is highly experienced with all types of firearms, especially your specific gun. You’ll also want someone who is properly certified and well-trained. Be sure to choose a training course that will fit your needs. You can choose a private class for more one-on-one time or differently sized group classes.
- Pay attention: During a firearm training class, your instructor will go over proper safety protocols, handling techniques, and tips and recommendations according to your firearm. You’ll want to pay close attention to absorb all the information and get the most out of your training. The most important parts will likely be repeated throughout the course to be reinforced.
- Fire lots of rounds: Firearm training is a good time to test out and get comfortable with your gun. Whether you’re testing out new guns to choose which one is best for you or working with your own, it’s best to fire lots of rounds during training to build your comfort level and confidence as well as practice best habits for shooting. It’s also a good idea to do some training regularly to stay familiar with your gun and ensure it’s still in optimal working condition.
