The biggest challenge of effective Concealed Carry isn’t the concealing of the firearm, but rather the "draw stroke and presentation", if a threat presents itself.
To those of us with our concealed carry licenses, the draw stroke and presentation is the most crucial and yet can be the most easy to botch aspect of Concealed Carry. For we spend more time training the draw stroke and presentation than we do determining how and where we will carry our weapon. Personally, I do dry runs with my carry rig every day.
Now, when done in the home and not on the range (remember, safety first), this works best with something like the SIRT laser training pistol or an airsoft pistol. With the SIRT pistol you can create a target, and practice your draw and initial discharge safely.
(The SIRT training pistol is a dedicated laser training device which mimics a full-size Glock. It provides an auto-resetting, fully-adjustable trigger, a trigger take-up and a shot indicating lasers, and a removable and weighted training magazine.)
The benefit of practicing and training with an airsoft pistol is that you can rehearse your reloading skill as well. In our next article I’ll discuss some of the absolute basics in practicing your draw stroke.
