Why Training is Important

I have been taking Krav Maga for several years. As with every martial art repetitive training is essential. The reason for this is that in a high stress situation you will react the way that you were trained. There won’t be a lot of thought, you will just respond to the threat as trained. The same holds true for firearms training.

In an article entitled, Training for Dummies: Set Yourself Up for Failure, the author discusses the importance of training with firearms. As he states, “There are two undeniable truths when it comes to shooting: Firearms skills are perishable, and mechanical failures will eventually happen. Both of these are reasons why shooters need to practice clearing malfunctions.

The author makes the point there are firearms failures such as jams, double feeds etc. He stresses the importance to train for these failures, so that when they happen you will react appropriately. Just like training for martial arts, repetitive training allows for decreased reaction time in high stress situations.

The article offers some great tips and suggestions for some common gun failures and some great practice suggestions, like the use of dummy rounds to practice with.

A New Threat to Gun Rights

I have been aware of this new threat to our second amendment rights for a few months. It is very subtle and not being talked about by the press. Rush Limbaugh mentioned this new threat this week on his radio program.

The threat is corporate gun control, and it puts the exercise of our second amendment rights in serious jeopardy. Here is an example of what’s been going on.

Citigroup was the first to strike. They started by setting restrictions on the sale of firearms by its business customers. What it did was

“prohibits the sale of firearms to customers who have not passed a background check or who are younger than 21. It also bars the sale of bump stocks and high-capacity magazines. It would apply to clients who offer credit cards backed by Citigroup or borrow money, use banking services or raise capital through the company.”

Does this kind of activity sound familiar? It is the same tactic that big tech is using on free speech to remove conservatives from their platforms.

J.D Rockefeller once said that competition is a sin.

Obviously, the left has realized that they are losing in the court of public opinion. They can’t have a true debate as the facts are rarely on their side so they must resort to these underhanded tactics to force their will upon us.

There is much more to this topic and the article I am citing is a great place to start.
