    At least one, simply because that is the component that is most likely to create a problem operating the gun. The spare gives you the ability to 'fix' most problems and stay in or get back into the fight.

    I don't care as much about making you more "tactical" as I do about making you better able to be the one still standing after the fight is over.

    With both eyes open, put the gun into firing position. Now close the non-dominant eye. The gun that is left once you do that should be the 'right' one that you will actually sight through.

    I have the same thing happen, in that I see a solid gun and a 'not-solid' gun when I raise it to firing position. I don't have a true dominant eye, either. What I find is that the 'inside' gun--oddly enough, the one I can see through--is the one I should sight with.

    If you have not already, I would recommend classes about point shooting. PM me if you want me to point you to specific courses that will teach you that.

    Questions about Ohio CCW instructor, advanced firearms, and range instructor courses

    To be an Ohio CCW Instructor:

    Should I take an advanced firearms shooting course, to teach CCW first?

    I had 1911 training in the army back in 1984, but no LE training to speak of. I was told to take the advanced firearms course before taking the CCW Instructors class. Is this typical? Good advice? Or is this guy just trying to make alittle more money off of me?

    Also, I will be qualifying my students at my home, which is where I will be teaching my classes. Will I need a range certification to do this? When would I want to have this certification? Thanks

    I have always placed a full magazine in my weapon, "lock and load", removed the magazine and insert one more round.

    I won't say that you have to do so, but I will say that it can't at all hurt. It also depends on what Ohio's state code and what your state rules are with regards to being an instructor. I had taken a Defensive Shooting Fundamentals class about a year prior to becoming an Arkansas CHL Instructor. I've gotten scheduled for one other in a month and have watched two DVD's on advanced firearms handling and use. The way I figure doing this helps is that it gives me some additional pointers to use for folks during the qualification portion of the class, if nothing else. It also gives me a secure reason to recommend further training after the students receive their CHL.

    Could be a bit of both.

    Arkansas requires that CHL Instructors be certified as Range Safety Officers and I won't pretend to know what Ohio requires. I'm now an NRA Certified RSO, which was a part of my CHL Instructor training course. I figure that it can't but help in credibility with the students.

    Also, if you're going to have students handling firearms w/live ammunition at your home, I'd suggest looking in to additional insurance in case of a Negligent Discharge that hurts or kills someone. Just some food for thought. I know if I owned appropriate property and had a home-made range set up along those lines that I'd certainly look in to some sort of liability insurance.

    Does anyone on here know how to become certified to teach the Massachutetts firearms course? I am already a certified instructor.
    Thanks

    Which firearm do you think would be better to conceal and carry for an amateur to novice carrier? The Ruger SR9C or a Glock 23?

    Which one do you shoot better and are more comfortable with?

    Both guns will do the job. Once you decide on a reliable firearm, you may want to find a way to shoot both pistols. Take note of your likes and dislikes of each. This will help you make your final selection. There are many carry methods available. Key part to deciding which pistol is best for you would be you having confidence in the selected firearm and ability to accurately fire the handgun.
