In my conversations with you, you’re telling me you want firearms training. And you want to know where to get it. You know about my professional training at Sig Sauer in Epping, NH here, here, here, and here. But not all of you can get there. My advice: Go to your local gun shop and ask around, or visit the NRA’s website. A friend of mine had a great experience training with SureFire, and it’s important to remember these companies offer off location options too.
You might want to hurry too. Joe Biden’s team is already talking about the gun control measures it wants in place. Ryan Cleckner, a former special operations sniper and a current firearms attorney, lists the top six places he thinks a Biden administration would strike against gun owners first, writing at The Federalist:
I think the first things a Biden administration will do regarding guns if given the chance are:
- Banning pistol braces
- Banning homemade firearms/80 percent receivers
- Banning online firearm and ammunition sales
Shortly after the first bans, and if he has the help of the Senate, the next gun control measures will likely be:
- Banning “assault weapons”
- Banning “high capacity” magazines
- Requiring universal background checks
Assault weapons? That means your AR-15. “High capacity” magazines? That means your standard capacity 30-round mags, or maybe even your ten-round mags.
What does this all add up to? It means you want to hurry. Get your guns and training now. Be sure to get training from someone who knows what they’re doing.
Dick and Debbie Young, my in-laws, recently put in some time at the range with one of New England’s best-known trainers, Daria Bruno. Dick said that he and Debbie were a bit put-off by the noise at the range at first, but that Daria “put us at ease right from the start. Our AR-7s pack up in three pieces in a waterproof stock, so the first task was assembling the rifles. Easy. Once assembled, we loaded the magazines with 8 rounds of CCI .22LR hollow points. The mags hold 9 rounds, but when new, they can be stiff. No one wants to mangle a finger or thumb jamming in round #9.”
After a few pointers from Daria, Dick and Debbie “each felt like [they] had shot Roy Rogers style.”
Action Line: Don’t get frustrated and let the high demand for guns and bullets slow you down. You owe it to yourself to get the training you deserve. Get shooting Roy Rogers style, before it’s too late.
