Training

Women who own a firearm still won’t feel competent to use it for self defense unless they have been trained properly. Basic training of firearm safety, gun unloading and reloading, as well as shooting accuracy are all essential components to developing confidence in warding off a potential attacker, while maximizing safety. Training can take place in a variety of settings. Local shooting ranges are a great place to train with a coach, friend or family member who has experience shooting. Training courses tailored to specific skill levels are also available to give women the upper hand in developing foundational skills and shooting competence. Training can also take place with other women at clubs or local shooting centers. Women can also practice firing dry rounds at home simply to get more comfortable with the feel of their gun. Practice in drawing a gun from any type of preferred holster is vital. In a real self defense situation, safety will depend on how quickly a person is able to draw the gun from their holster. Women should practice drawing their gun frequently until they feel comfortable with the process and confident that they can access it in seconds. Tactica has designed apparel specifically for concealed carry, so quick access to a firearm is now easier than ever. Training is an essential step in the process of mastering self defense.
