Responsibility at Arms

 
Responsibility at Arms
 
 
Does caring a gun make you safe?  For many, the obvious answer is a big fat no.  Responsible gun ownership,especially carrying a concealed deadly weapon, demands your complete andfull attention. Not most of the time or just some of the time but ALWAYS and all the time. 
 
 
This commitment to your complete and full concentration is not easy and must be carefully developed. It is a skill set that begins with attitude and a commitment to training.  Yes training and then after training, practice of what you have learned so that it becomes second nature to you.  At Eagle Eye Arms & Training we can help with this and offer our students a commitment to you for life. 
 
 
My attitude is that you can never learn enough in your lifetime, so you might as well plan on doing it for as long as you intend to carry that piece.  Col. Jeff Cooper, God rest his soul, once said it best, “You are no more armed because you carry a gun than you are a musician because you carry a guitar.”  Col. Cooper was a thinking man who devoted his life to skill at arms.  I am a huge fan and read everything I can get my hands on from him.  If you really want to learn how to defend yourself and your family from a deadly encounter you should read his book, "Principles of Personal Self Defense”.  It is a short, easy read but you will want to read it a few times as the 80 pages are jammed full of insightful and relevant material that could save your life.  It is an excellent reference book and well worth the modest price.
 
 
So you still want to carry something to give you comfort.  If you do then you will appreciate the training that our program offers.  In order to develop skill at arms you will need to learn first how to safely handle your firearm.  This is the focus of our course at Eagle Eye Arms & Training. The NRA has put together an excellent lesson plan that gives you the proper attitude and training needed to be a responsible gun owner and operator.
 
 
How do you practice with a dangerous tool that can harm or kill you, safely with no possibility of harming yourself and your loved ones that you would otherwise like to protect with it?  Unload it and remove the ammo from the area you intend to use for dry fire practice. Please for safety sake, unload your gun in one room and leave all the live ammo in this room and move your butt into the other area of your home.  We refer to this area as the “safe practice room” you pick it can be any other room in your abode just not the same room as the ammo.
 
 
Ok, now what?  You should gather together your holster; dummy ammo or snap caps if your gun requires this (refer to your owner’s manual) your empty gun and a safe target.  What is a safe target?  Good question!  A safe target is anything you can use todevelop a clear sight picture set in an area of your home that even if it were shot it would not injure anyone else in your home or on the other side of the wall or damage property you’re attached to. Give it some thought and pick a good spot where no one walks in front or behind the target.  Got all that?
 
 
Now before you begin you must triple check your firearm to make sure there is not ammo in any chambers, cylinders, breaches etc.  Remove the magazine (you should have done this in the other room) rack the slide three times and then visually check the breach to make sure it is empty and take your little finger and stick it in to double check that no sticky cartridge is still in there.
 
 
Now you are ready to begin practicing with your unloaded pistol.  If there is anyone else at home, please tell them what you are doing before you begin so as not to alarm or frighten them.  Now you can practice your draw and dry fire at your safe target. Dry fire is an important and essential part of handling your equipment safely with proficiency.  Correct practice is critical and our program gives you the proper foundation to build on so when the occasion demands the presentation of your gun you can do so smoothly and efficiently without hesitation.  As my dad has said for a long as I can remember, “He who hesitates is lost.”
 
 
In closing, how many times does it take to develop muscle memory of any learned skill?  How about 1,500 times!  Take your time and practice correctly for as long as you can concentrate. When you are tired, stop and do it again later.
 
 
 
Come to class and learn the basics.

This is one of the topics that most bloggers should write about but seldom gets interest because of the few number of people who might be attracted to the topic. In all honesty, carrying guns is a commitment more than just a responsibility. When you know in yourself that you are possessing a deadly weapon, you must be committed as well in the consequences that it might cause unto you when the time comes that it comes to a wrong use. I really appreciate your post. I hope that more contents like this will be featured in the Internet. Keep up the good work.
