Gun Training, Things to Expect and What to Look For

The Self-Initiative Project, Podcast 14, Gun Training, Things to Expect and What to Look For

Van Seeley, former Marine and firearms instructor, joins us once again to discuss gun training. We talk about his background and the things he has seen and experienced as an instructor.

Whether you are seeking to improve your overall shooting game or you plan to carry for defensive purposes, you need to seek out solid training. You should plan to go to class with an open mind, with your ego checked at the door, and be prepared to learn. Most importantly be realistic about where you are with gun handling and what you are expecting to get out of class. Safety in training is as, if not more, important than any other time given the circumstances and the fact that others will be in class with you.

Hopefully, this episode inspires you to seek out that training.

Thanks for listening.

The Self-Initiative Project, Podcast 8, Best Gun Tips

We talk about some of the best gun tips that likely can make you a safer gun handler, a better shooter, and at the very least, a more well-informed firearm supporter.

We cover a lot of topics including the case for redundancy in firearms handling, the ins and outs of picking a quality holster, why open carry is stupid for most people, what proper concealed carry entails, there being no case for carrying with an empty chamber, ball ammo not being appropriate for defensive purposes, the importance of training, why you need to look when you re-holster, and much, much more.

Join us because I bet you or someone you know can benefit from at least a few good bits of information in this episode.

Thanks for listening.

We continue our chat with Van Seeley on gun training versus gear...

You somehow manage to find the money for the guns and gear. Do you ever find any for ammo and training? There is some cool gear out there; and some gear can even help a shooter improve. But where does training fit into all of this? We finish our chat on the subject.

Thanks for listening.

Part 1...  I talk with my good buddy, Van Seeley, retired Marine (20 years), firearms instructor, and gun range manager, about gun training versus gear and where you should spend your time and money.

We have all heard the importance of getting some firearm training, yet some still choose to spend their monies on gear instead.

Sometimes people get caught up in the coolness factor of some gear or think the gear is going to make them a better shooter and neglect training. Where should you spend you time and money? Van and I discuss and hopefully you'll pick up what we are putting down.

Sit back. Relax. Listen.
