    “Only You Are Responsible For You”

    By Roger Phillips, Suarez International Specialist and Tier One Instructor

    This is the last sentence inside of the Suarez International videotaped liability release. These are not just words! It should be the very core to your gun safety philosophy. It does not matter what you know or where you learned your safe gun handling habits. It does not matter where you train right now. Only you are responsible for your own safety habits.

    This means that you need to look at what you have been taught or what you do and decide if it is really good enough. Remember, the most likely person that you are going to shoot IS YOURSELF!

    “How good is good enough?”

    do not try for the edge till you can control the center

    sometimes a highly competitive ( and usually quite good) student will try to explore the outer reaches of a technique
    before they have fully mastered (made reflexive) its central abilities. danger here is sweeping self and lose of balance;
    loose your smooth...loose the fight.


    following a class i ask again how many are still thinking about SD carry.
    it slips from 4/5 to 3/5 and 1/5 never applies. i am an independent and conduct very small glasses
    by referral. overall 1/2 go on to carry taking my class and i know of some who have been with you.
    Vicker's has been to my club and CT residents are becoming SD aware as the weird in public and Home
    Invasions has many troubled.

    good article. one all who carry should read.

    Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine

    I'll offer this look at the Big Four to go along with Roger's article:

    Another great article Roger!

    I can't tell you how often I've seen "competition" shooters that have the EXTREMELY bad habit of slamming their gun into their holster.

    A few years ago I thought about doing some IDPA & IPSC meets. But, at the 1st one (IPSC), I watched a shooter have an ND because he rushed clearing & reholstering. At the second one I went to see (IDPA), poor trigger discipline & muzzle control was rampant; especially during reloading.
