Yes, I realistically train on a regular basis.
I train sometimes nothing really physical though.
No need to train further I am comfortable in my ability and not trying to be Rambo.

I get 'amped up' every time I get to pull the trigger (range and plunking time). Getting shot at 'is highly overrated!' I've had enough of that.
When the hammer drops, you will fight like you are trained to. Everything is situational I guess. Kind of why I turned down a job in Detroit, wrong situation for me.

I'm planning on taking training with Clint Smith at Thunder Ranch next summer. This summer, I'm going to Tactical Response in Camden, TN with James Yeager. Hopefully I'll get to go to Vickers or Hackethorn down the road.

I train religiously (almost), I've taken IDPA and NRA SO courses, I shoot IDPA and Steel regularly, there are fortunately some world class champion shooters in Central Florida and I've taken and am taking private and group lessons. I do regular dry fire and range practice. I probably have a gun in my hand for training and practice about 6 hours per week on average.
I do NOT understand how people can just get a CWFL and then not train to use it effectively. I've bee trying to get my son down here to take a massad Ayoob course but scheduling has been a problem. Hopefully next year....

if your serious enough to have the CCW, then you must be serious enough to have at least have the basics in gun safety and handling.
Not being a gun person or hunter myself, I would never feel confortable in the sense of safe use and handling with just the basics. In Wisconsin, we do not have a requirement for shooting in obtaining the CCW, only a minimum of class room training. Not adequate for gun ownership much less personal protection.

I try to attend some sort of advanced shooting course every couple years.
With a few close friends we try to do realistic scenario training every couple of months or so on private property ranges. Barricade shooting, moving targets, shooting on the move, prone, seated, weapon retention drills, disarming techniques, etc.
Then there is my regular range training for accuracy. I try to so some sort of in home dry fire training at least every week working on the draw and trigger control.

1st Sgt. I like your response. I agree with the holistic approach to training as I do the exact same. Training is both physical and mental. I do dryfire drills that allow me to increase speed through muscle memory training and continue to take professional combat and tactical training courses. I read books on techniques, mindset and legalities of lethal force so I can prepare myself as much as possible for the situation that I hope never comes.
On top of all you mentioned I also shoot competitively in IDPA matches. I like the real world scenario stages and the stress of competition. It's amazing what a little stress will expose in your technique and mental preparedness.
