    Explanation of term "Wally Walk" and the feelings that will come with it.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Here are some of the terms that would have been helpful to me:

    AIWB; IWB; the different "o'clock" positions for carrying; pros and cons of Small Of the Back carry; shoulder carry; t-shirts with carry pouches; belly bands; ankle carry; why use "gun belts"; suppliers of different kinds of holsters and what the pros and cons of them (different types of holsters) are; carrying "one in the pipe" and why; clothing choices that aid CCW and those that do not help.

    Just off the top of my head--hope it helps. I'll be sure to visit your site on YouTube!

    Carrying "cocked & locked" condition one and only while keeping your finger off the bang switch re-holstering.

    A frank and in-depth discussion of "disparity of force" issues. Coupled with a frank discussion about the legalities of shooting an unarmed opponent.

    1. Know the laws in your state.
    2. Know the laws in your state.
    3. Know the laws in your state.
    3a. Know the laws in your state, and any special subdivisions of the state you may visit... (like NY state vs. NY City) *
    4. Know the laws in any other state you plan to visit before you go.
    5. Understand "Reasonable Man" as it applies legally in all of the above.
    6. Now you can start talking about actually strapping one on... and all the accoutrement...
    6a. Gun safety Gun safety Gun safety
    7. Force on force laws.
    7a. Now, maybe you can actually strap one on and go for a walk.
    8. Now you can start training on draw, sight picture, getting off the x, and all the other "tactics."


    *special note: our state has preemption (and so may yours)... our Attorney General has issued an opinion that counties and municipalities need not pay any attention to that... and I don't have the funds nor the inclination to be the test case, even the winning one.
    It could be worse.

    +1 but............shooting proficiency should be up there as number one. When I went to my cc class I'd been shooting IDPA, steel silhouette, Police marksman training, 3 gun tactical for years. It scared the hell out of me to see people pass the class that will end up shooting themselves or innocent bystanders because of their lack of proficiency with a handgun.
    Redline and Miketrance like this.

    How the "cant" of the holster can help or hurt printing. I carry a Springfield Champion SS 1911 with a 15 degree cant and have printing when I bend over. My IWB holster I'm waiting on will have a 25 degree cant for my Para Black Ops 1911 with a 5 inch barrel. A good gun belt.Shirt's that work best. Thar was easy for me, I either wear t-shirt's or a polo shirt and the polo work's the best. I was told because of my size 5'6 145 lbs that I couldn't carry a big gun and conceal it. Rechambering round's .My only issue was the shirt.
    Remember, Life is not like a box of chocolate's.. It's more like a jalapeno pepper, because what you decide upon today can really burn your butt tomorrow..

    In this day and age I think would forego something like that even if you are dead on. What if for example Zimmerman saw a video like that and said that is why he thought his actions were appropriate. I would hate to leave myself open to a lawsuit from either party.

    Training, practice, and muscle memory...why it's important.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.
