Concealed Carriers Documentary Coming in 2012 (VIDEO)
If you carry concealed, how serious are you about that responsibility? (Unfortunately, I don’t carry concealed; I live in wonderful Los Angeles County).
To put the question another way, how much training have you participated in to prepare yourself for the lawful use of deadly force against a criminal who seeks to hurt you or the people you care about?
Conventional wisdom assumes that the more training one goes through, the more prepared he/she is.
Although, I’ve had one friend tell me that he doesn’t rely on training or extensive range time. He said he took the mandatory minimum training requirement in his state (I think it’s a 4 hour course), got his CCW license, and that’s all he needs.
He added that any more training would be “paralysis by analysis.” He argued that people who train too much become too mechanical with their motions. They’re not fluid or intuitive when they react in high-pressure situations and that, he said, can get them killed.
