I have taken multiple forms of training beyond the minimal CC course required to get a license. I've taken training on carry legalities, handgun and rifle proficiency. The next thing I plan to do is some force on force training.
Very few, in my experience. Most are just interested in meeting the qualifications for getting their state license.I'm interested in finding out how many people are interested or willing to continue their training beyond the basic course required by your state to obtain a concealed carry permit. I have continued mine past my military training with the NRA. I'm now a certified instructor for Personal Defense in the Home, Outside the home, and Defensive Pistol. Just looking for ideas and opinions.
Unfortunately, I think this us true probably in the majority of cases. It most often comes out when the subject comes up about when it is justifiable, or excusable, to employ deadly force, and then what to do after having done this. That's when you know that the individual with whom you are in a discussion is seriously lacking in valuable, life changing knowledge.Very few, in my experience.

Agreed, but I'm also on the fence with whether additional training is actually needed or not. Seems to me there was a decent study written by Ed Lovette a few years back that found that in the majority of successful civilian self defense encounters, the successful defender had absolutely no formal training (a minority had former .mil training). My guess is the ammo used was part of the original box acquired when the gun was bought.Very few, in my experience.

Funny you mention that. Several weeks ago I was at my local indoor range and there was a man in the lane next to me. He was shooting targets at seven to ten yards... the kind of targets that show a bright yellow spot where the bullet penetrates. His press out was textbook, as was his stance. Each shot he made was from a low ready to the press out. And his hits were among the tightest I have ever seen at a range. Consistent and just excellent. I was doing my usual group of drills where I do double and triple taps at paper plates with the target hold flipping from edge to face and back.So I'm not to the point where I'm watching someone shoot and thinking; "dude, there's no way you'll survive unless you get that 1st shot time down under 1.5" or "with that kind of grouping at 25 yards there's no way you'll survive an active shooter at the mall scenario".
Sadly true.Very few, in my experience. Most are just interested in meeting the qualifications for getting their state license.
