Thread: How Often Do You Practice With Your Carry Weapon??

  1. How Often Do You Practice With Your Carry Weapon??

    How ofter do you take your CCW and whatever means you carry by, to a range and actually draw from that means of concealment, fire at least one round and reholster. I actually do this at least once a week, wearing my gun IWB, with my everyday street clothes.

    Around here, the indoor ranges don't allow draw from concealment & fire except during IDPA and IPSC matches. I try to shoot at least 1 match a month, sometimes 2 or 3 when they are available and my schedule allows.

  4. Twice a month is all I can squeeze in right now (afford too) but I do dry fire quite a bit. ;)

    I've often wondered if getting an air-soft replica of one's carry pistol (to fit in the same holsters) would be a worthwhile practice tool. I'm not 'into' the air-soft thing, so I'm not sure if models like that are available... It sure would be safer, and allow one to practice quick-draw and point-shooting without annoying the neighbors or having to go to the range (which may or may not allow drawing from a holster).

    +1.... I have found airsoft a good way to be able to practice and keep the cost down. Live fire once or twice a month.

  7. Never really tought of airsoft guns for keeping sharp. I wonder how much the weight difference will affect the draw under stress. I also like to draw, fire one round and reholster. I want it to be a fluid motion done without too much thought. I want it to be mechanical. I also practice the Tueller Drill from a sitting position. I have even turned my car sideways across the firing line at the range when I am alone, and drawn from a sitting position and seatbelted in.....now that one is a real challenge. I did that one with dummy rounds the firat 10 times just to make sure I did not accidentally fire in the car when moving into position to fire at the BG. The only problem is the brass bouncing around into the windshield can be very distracting. I really have tried many non standard shooting scenarios to see just how I will handle then if, God forbid, they actually occur. This might seem to be a bit over the top, but I have always planned for the worst case scenario in any situation and try to be prepared for anything out of the ordinary.

  8. I get together with a brother-in-law once a week at our local indoor range. We've come to really enjoy it and the "friendly competition" makes it a lot more fun, too.

    My brother-in-law and I do the same thing almost every week. It is a lot more fun when you do have some "friendly competition".

    There are many different types of airsoft guns out there. Cheaper ones are made of plastic and you can get metal ones that operate like the real thing. We use the nicer ones in some of our training and they weigh almost the same as a real Glock. I have found them to be a wonderful training tool.

    I usually practice twice a week, drawing from holster, and in a lay down position
    have my own range, outdoors of course, practice in each hand, and both hands
