Why Get Combat Firearms Training?

Guns are super, unbelievably cool. It’s a huge amount of fun to be able to head down to the firing range, pop off a few hundred rounds, and then go out and have a few beers. There’s nothing wrong with collecting guns, because there are a number of different, amazing types of guns out there on the market. If you like guns, then you might as well purchase a few and enjoy the thing you collect. Everyone has hobbies, after all!

However, there’s a huge difference between owning a gun, and being able to use a gun. Not only that, but there’s a fairly huge difference between using a gun for hunting purposes, and using a gun for self-defence and other combat situations. When you need to use your gun for a combat situation, then you need combat firearms training. There’s no two ways about it. You can’t use a gun in combat if you haven’t had the proper training, just like you can’t use any other tool when you don’t have the proper training. It doesn’t matter if your state allows you to have open carry when you don’t have a license, the simple and true fact is that if you want that gun to be anything other than a security blanket, you need the training.

Why Do You Need Combat Firearms Training?

Have you ever had a situation where you had to perform a task with only a small amount of knowledge? Maybe your shelf was falling apart, and so you decided to put a few more nails into it in order to keep it standing. Perhaps your pipes were leaking, and you figured you could tighten it down with a pipe wrench. Or maybe your boss gives you a job at work, and you don’t really know how to do the job, but you have a vague idea, so you try to do it instead of telling your boss that you have no idea how to do the thing they want you to do.

How does that usually turn out? The answer is not well. Many people like to ignore the times that sort of thing turns out horrible, and instead focus on the few times it turns out well. But the truth is that it doesn’t turn out well. It almost never does. What makes you think using a gun for self defense is going to be any different? In spite of the way some movies and television shows want to treat guns as if they’re nothing more than objects of cool, the simple fact remains that they are a tool. Like any tool, you need to know how to use it and how to care for it. Not only that, like any tool, you need to have experience to use it well.

Combat firearms training is more than just training you how to fire a gun warfighterand how to keep it clean. You need to know more than just safety, aiming and upkeep to use a gun in combat. This is because of how the human body reacts to dangerous situations. The adrenaline begins to pump through your body, your brain shuts down higher functions in order to fuel more instinctive functions. You run into the old fight or flight mindset, and it’s difficult to get out of it.

This is why so many people make poor decisions when they’re in dangerous situations. They haven’t trained to make something instinctive. If you want to use your gun in self-defence situations, you need to make that complete instinct. This is what combat training does for you. Combat training helps you learn to draw and fire instinctively, before you think about it. Combat training helps you be able to accurately stop a dangerous threat with several rounds before you have enough time to worry about whether or not you’re in danger.

If you want to take combat training, and you should, your best bet is to check with any clerks at your local gun shop or hunting supply shop. They’ll often have plenty of business cards and flyers from people who are putting on combat training courses. They’ll help point you towards someone who can teach you everything that you need to know.
