Your Chance to ask a Firearm Instructor


Is it legal to carry in a commercial vehicle? I have my Ohio and PA ccw
As long as you have your Concealed Carry License you can carry inside any vehicle in Ohio. If your company policy says you cannot carry you may get in trouble with them. Im not sure about PA though.

2923.16 Improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.

I have a question about Gen4 Glocks. I have a Glock 27. I have heard that the new Gen4 Glocks are not any better than the previous Glock. That most of the changes are basically internal. Is this true. Do it make any sense at all to upgrade or is my Glock 27 just as good. This one of my first guns. I have been shooting for about a year now.

I have a question concering signage....The sign states no firearms allowed on the premises, states the statutes and below it says...Unless otherwise allowed by law.
Does a valid ccw or recipricating license fall under Otherwise allowed by law?

I also have Queation,I reside in New York State, which has some of the Strictest Gun Laws, And Pistol Permit Application Requirements.Why doesn't New York State make it manditory for all Applicants to not only learn to safely handle Firearms, But also to be able to Qualify shooting an weapon as well?

I see, and know people who receive their Pistol Permit without ever firing an weapon. It's a great responcibility receiving your Pistol Permit, all the more reasoning NYS,And all states would make it Manditory that each Applicant qualify firing an weapon before receiving an Pistol Permit.

Well, one of my issues with NY is that the permit application is done by county. There are some counties that require no training to apply for your permit and others, such as Westchester require the NRA Basic Pistol and require you to purchase a pistol to have a permit. Some counties will issue a full carry and others will only do hunting/target/home (or at least they work their hardest NOT to issue a full carry)

Every county has different rules, true. Some are Judge dependant. Most require only a basic safety class to get your home and target shooting, many have specific training requirements with approved instructors for CC.

Here in colorado, the law has changed that if leo's run your drivers license, it does no longer show if you have a permit. Your also not required to volunteer that information if contacted by a leo. If your are asked if you have weapons on you, out they see something under your shirt that looks larger than Cellphone, are tort required to answer? Or how would other people answer this. I haven't been in this situation, just curious

Many states require formal training and some must qualify before getting licensed. NY has no formal training requirements state-wide (as per PL 400.00). I too often wonder why not. We wouldn't hand the keys to a car to someone who hasn't been schooled and tested.

I know this is an older post, but if you haven't found your answer, very little has changed on the Subcompacts, like the 26 and 27. The grip is narrower, and it has different size backstraps, and a Magazine catch that can be moved to the opposite side, to make it left handed. On the larger models, the recoil spring was changed as well, to a design that is very similar to the subcompact models. FWIW the earlier model G17 and 19 had trouble with the new recoil spring. A recall was sent out. PM me for details on that.

Hope this helps

I would like some advice please on how to aim while keeping both eyes open. When I try keeping both eyes open ,I se double everything. I am pretty sure I am right eye dominet. Any advice?
 
Really all it takes is practice. Start by sighting the firearm with your dominant eye as normal.
Focus on ONLY the front sight.
Open your other eye, while remaining focused on ONLY the front sight.

With practice you will no longer need to start by closing 1 eye.

It will also help to start close and work your way back to a greater distance. Focus on the front sight, the rear sight should be a blur, as another instructor said.
 
I try to have 3 sources of ammunition on me when I carry. The first source is obviously in the pistol. I keep a second full magazine in a belt pouch and the third in a front pocket or in my jacket pocket. Depends on the weather and how I am dressed.

The 3 sources was something taught to me by my father after he spent 25 years as an LEO. The mag in the pocket is last resort as it is pretty difficult to get to quickly.
 
I just got a double mag pouch :)
Don't overcomplicate.... if you feel the need to conceal another magazine, conceal it in a BUG. Your fastest reload is your second gun. (Thanks to the Seargent I met on the range who gave me that advice)

+1 ...that will improve your speed and accuracy, as well as helping to develop the skill. When I taught myself to do it I practiced it dry for hours, then took it to the range, started at 5 yrds, and kept going back. The range shouldn't BE your training it should VALIDATE your training/dry practice. If you always focus on the front sight and ONLY the front site you'll pick it up in no time.

QUESTION:

Is there a true benefit in using +p ammunition, particularly in compact, short barreled pistols? I am curious about the Hornady TAP FPD 230gr +p ammo for my M&P .45c. As advertised it has a muzzle velocity of 950ft/sec from a 5" barrel. My M&P is a 4". So I'm basically looking for maximum expansion and effectiveness in my compact pistol without risking over penetration. Looking for a bit of guidance. Thanks in advance.
