Just had my ccw class this evening. Im excited that Im 1/2 way there to obtaining my permit. However, now Ive got more questions than answers...legal mostly about what if's. Grrrr....Sighhh...whats next ?
Agreed....training is a key component in carrying these days. As a cop we trained constantly on use of force and Ayoob is one of the best for civilian training. Just make sure that whatever training you take is from a reputable trainer. If you can ever go to Ayoob's course or one from Gunsite or Dave Grossman by all means GO! I was priviledged to go to some of these because of my past profession. The decision of "shoot - don't shoot" is one that only you can ultimately make, but training will help you make the best decision possible if the time comes.What's next is professional training centered around the justifiable use of lethal force. Look up the Massad Ayoob Group courses for starters.
If you haven't already, be sure to read Ayoob's book, In the Gravest Extreme: The Role of the Firearm in Personal Protection: Massad F. Ayoob: 9780936279008: Amazon.com: Books
IMO, this should be required reading for any new CC'r. You'll also want to do some research on the statutes and case law that are specific to your state.
Hope this helps.
I could quickly answer that if you were asking about Mississippi resources:smile:... but since you need resources for CO, I'm afraid I can't help. Hopefully some of our CO members will chime in with some links for you.Can you give me a link of where I can find specific rules/laws/statues for caring in Colorado? And which of those statues do you think is most important to pay attention to? Thanx...
