What Does Competency Mean To You?
there is more to carrying a gun than buying it and carrying it.
to you, what is the level of training and ability that you feel is minimum to carry it safely and to if necessary, use it effectively?
pocket guns are of course different than IWB or OWB. with a pocket rig you may feel a heightened awareness and put your hand in your pocket: skill and time to draw is nil though there is still the issue of your accuracy. IWB and OWB require cover garments ( where concealment is by law) and thus more training.
i have put forth in other posts what i consider 'competent' and 'truly skilled'
and i would appreciate hearing from you all what it means to you. thank you.
NO WAY am i advocating training standards. please, lets not go there.
many people own and chose to wear a gun and that is our Constitutional Right.
i am simply curious as to what those who carry and who have given thought to perhaps someday needing it,
what they consider competency with this tool to be.
not if you have it (yet), just what you consider it to be.
again, thank you for your thoughts.
