Why Train With A CCW Permit?

DC Reed/Director

I had a reader comment on a post asking, “Why is it important to document training and why pay for the CCW App?”

That’s actually a great question and this was my response.

Military and law enforcement train with their tools and weapons regularly to hone their skills, learn new ones, test their abilities under realistic conditions, and demonstrate proficiency to an established standard. Some do it better than others, but they all scrupulously document their training.

This is a hedge against liability, as in a court of law your testimony may not be enough. In other words in some courts if it wasn’t recorded (in writing) then it “didn’t happen.”

As a CCW permit carrier you will have none of the protective presumptions courts give government employees and their training records. The wrong prosecutor or a civil trial lawyer will attempt to paint you as reckless or negligent. By dedicating your time and effort (and ammo) to practice and study – and using our system to professionally document your training- you are building a record of responsibility. A history that shows you take the awesome responsibility of carrying a firearm seriously and maturely.

That’s our purpose and our mission statement. It’s why we built CCW Guardian.

Dry Fire Practice

DC Reed/Director

The topic of how to correctly dry fire a handgun for skill development come up often during our Tactical Analysis Group (TAG, LLC) training courses. The concern is safe doctrine and also productiveness. Can you really improve on your skills without firing a live shot? The answer is yes.

Most top instructors are big fans of dry firing when conducted safely and properly. Dry firing can foster good trigger control and aid in perfecting the draw stroke and presentation as well as magazine changes and clearing stoppages. It can also expose problems with equipment like holsters and concealment garments.

In the TAG, LLC Progressive Pistolcraft course we teach correct dry fire methodology. The critical issue is to ensure all live ammunition is physically separated from the room when you start a dry fire session. The line taught at Gunsite Academy is to, “put your ammo in a sock and place it in your empty bathroom tub”.

This is of course a mental image designed to illustrate how safety is imperative during at-home, unsupervised dry fire practice. The preferred practice from TAG is to have an observer acting as coach and safety monitor.

First, ensure all people in the home understand you are not to be disturbed and all distractions (phones, TV, computers, etc.) are silenced and put away. Yes, this means smartphones too, but keep it nearby to document your dry fire practice with CCW Guardian once you’re done.

To start, safely unload and clear your weapon, locking the action open. Again, remove all live ammo physically from the entire area.

Next, have a pen and paper handy and write down what skills your dry fire session will practice and define your goals. For instance, “I want to work on improving my draw stroke and presentation from the holster,” or “I want to achieve a quicker front sight focus.”

Next, write down the time and date. Ideally dry fire is 10 minutes or so per session, two to three times a week. Dry firing too often or attempting longer sessions can mean you’ll lose focus and reduce the benefits.

By the way, try focusing, really focusing on something for more than a couple of minutes. Stare at your watch. How long can you clear your mind and really focus on your watch before distracting thoughts enter your mind and take your attention off your watch? One minute? Three?

The point is limiting your dry fire practice to the amount of time you can shut out the world and do it right. This is not just for safety, but also to ensure the session is worthwhile.

After checking all magazines again and ensuring the firearm chamber is clear, place your pistol in your holster.

Now the environment is properly set up and your goal is set then close your eyes and mentally rehearse what you are about to run through. For this example we’ll use the goal of improving the draw stroke and presentation. Picture moving your hands to the correct position making sure the Support hand moves with your Weapon hand.

As you mentally grip the weapon (correctly) your support hand is on your lower chest. In your mind, you release any holster retention devices and clear the weapon up and rotate it to a level, close-ready position. Weapon hand elbow is back and the arm is tight against your body. Then you move to the ‘smack’ position where as you thrust the gun forward your support hand intercepts and completes the grip.

Still only in your mind, you see the front sight in your peripheral vision as you extend your arms pushing the weapon forward and on target. You watch the front sight as it settles on target and increase your focus, sharply, on the front sight alone. Now on target, your trigger finger moves to the trigger and a rearward press begins removing the slack. Pressing, not pulling, not jerking, not slapping, you add weight to the trigger smoothly until, as you stare at the front sight, you achieve a clean, surprise break.

Remember never to ‘fake’ or simulate recoil when dry firing and continue to focus on the front sight. Then slowly reverse the draw stroke back to close ready and then into the holster with your support hand moving back to your chest.

Take your time. There is no such thing as a “speed re-holster.”

Remember, “Draw quickly – shoot carefully – re-holster reluctantly.”

You did all this while standing still, hands at your side, and with your eyes closed. All martial arts and pro athletes use visualization techniques such as this. It is essential to good dry fire.

Now prepared, having visualized yourself doing it correctly, you will start dry fire.


Begin in slow motion. Practice does not make perfect, ‘Perfect’ practice makes perfect.

During TAG training I actually dislike that old saying but its use here is to illustrate you should not allow yourself to practice a technique sloppily or wrong. Perfect is the enemy of excellent, so don’t beat yourself up when you do something off of correct. Just stop, breathe, and go back to step one.

Go slow and execute the draw as proficiently as you can. If you have issues with the entire draw stroke and presentation, try to work on one phase of it at a time. For instance, moving from a relaxed position to a solid grip on the gun while still in the holster.

Once you have the technique down, conduct three very slow, correct draw strokes and presentations. Take a breath. Work on exhaling as you draw. Do three more at half speed. Never dry practice a technique at full speed. Speed will come with thousands of correct repetitions, never from trying to be quick. As soon as you mentally say ‘now’ and try to go fast, chances are you’ll dork it up.

Smooth is the real fast. Smooth and correct will beat fast and flustered every time.

Three more draw strokes ensuring the front sight is in sharp focus. Half speed at the most. If you catch yourself losing focus on this one skill or messing something up, go back to quarter speed and fix it.

When next in the holster and safe, stop and check your watch. Are ten minutes up? If so stop, write down the time and close your session.

Put away everything and set your firearm up for storage – or depending on the situation – back ready for CCW carry. Resist the urge to go longer or worse; after dry fire practice is over to re-unload and go again. That’s where accidents happen.

All Clear? Safe? Now let the world back in. When you have a minute, use your CCW Guardian app to document this training. (Have an iPhone? Go to www.CCWGUARDIAN.com)

Future sessions might be trigger control and reset drills, possibly using plastic dummy rounds. This increases the risk somewhat so add emphasis to the safety controls we put in place. Magazine changes are another good topic, but again you have to adjust the safety controls in place.

Sometimes there is a limit to what you can do on your own and you need to have a mature, trained and skilled observer help by watching you. Pick this person wisely as someone who nit-picks you to death will kill your focus.

(I hate golf to this day because of the guy who wouldn’t let me swing once uninterrupted without a correction of some sort!

With only a little self-promoting, this is what TAG, LLC’s Progressive Pistolcraft (the PRP) is all about. Professional coaching before bad habits sets in, is essential.

Dry fire training with mental visualization of proper techniques can increase your proficiency, build kinetic weapons handling skills, and make your expensive live fire training sessions vastly more productive.

Advanced Firearms Training

DC Reed/Director

Your Carry of Concealed Weapons (CCW) permit training is probably mandated by the state and follows a state-mandated syllabus. The instructor you had (if he was a pro) followed the state curriculum guidelines to the letter to protect you from civil liability. If you never advance past this point and obey the law you have probably met the state-set standard for keeping your CCW permit. But is this minimum standard all that is needed to protect yourself and your family during a violent critical incident?

Look at the question another way. Was your state-mandated driver’s education all you needed to become a proficient driver? Did the state-regulated hunter safety class teach you what was needed to become a skilled hunter?

No? Then if you come to the conclusion that the minimum standards for your defensive training as set by lawyers and politicians are not enough, you should seek out professional advanced firearms training.

In an earlier article, we discussed the importance of seeking out a reputable and knowledgeable trainer. One that will still be around should you need credible, professional testimony in court. There are pluses and minuses to training with law enforcement, military, and competition oriented trainers. What you should look for is a course outline or agenda that describes which tactics, techniques, and procedures (or TTPs) are taught and go from there.

Always question the doctrinal foundation used by an advanced trainer. A pro trainer can explain where their curriculum came from and what doctrine it is based on. The hack trainer will either bristle at the question on something they teach or just say something generally dismissive. In other words, they don’t know if what they are training is an effective, reality-based doctrine or not.

Another consideration is that different “advanced” courses can all have a different emphasis. If you want more concealed carry TTPs, then look for a course that emphasizes concealment equipment, decision-making, low light engagements, and perhaps house/building clearing techniques.

If you desire to mainly increase your shooting ability, then you want training that emphasizes dynamic shooting tactics, shooting and moving, target discrimination, engagement drills, and clearing stoppages.

Other, probably more difficult to find, are courses that specialize in the legal issues surrounding civilian self-defense and protection against civil liability. While certainly important, they are not as fun for the student and thus not broadly offered.

Look at your personal training this way. Shooting a handgun well enough for self-defense is a martial art. It takes time and years of dedication to master this very perishable skill. Buying a firearm and getting the permit are akin to buying a piano and getting some sheet music. It doesn’t make you a musician.

So to better understand the process, consider the following. You start out as what is called “unconscious and incompetent.” This means you are living unaware of any threat to your world as it exists and you are completely incompetent to deal with any such threat. Most of the people you know live their whole lives in this state, blithely going about their business until something very sudden and dramatic occurs. They depend on others for their safety. They depend on the kindness of strangers. In a real crisis, they have no reaction and just stand there, like a deer mesmerized by oncoming headlights. Too often such people are a bystander in their own demise.

The next level is “consciously incompetent.” This is when they become aware that the world holds many dangerous people and places. Danger becomes more of a real and personal concept. Usually this epiphany happens when they experience a violent encounter or observe something traumatic. There now is the realization that something has to change; they cannot go on as before, but don’t yet know what to do. This is the beginning of learning and the entry point for training.

Now, some training has occurred and they reach “consciously competent.” Many go their whole life here and never advance their training any further. They feel confident and their abilities when not under stress are obvious. But as with all martial arts this is a critical point in training. There is a great fault in staying consciously competent. A person who stays at this level too long must be able to think clearly to adequately apply their skills.

Science teaches that the body dumps a chemical cocktail into the brain as a survival mechanism. During violent, time-dynamic encounters your ability to think clearly, or fast enough, is questionable. You must train past this level.

Martial artists describe the true objective of training is to achieve “unconscious competence.” Being able to react instinctively and correctly without having to think your way through a critical situation. This is an intuitive, instantaneous reaction to danger and a practiced, legally appropriate, and technically accurate response. This takes years of thought and dedication but the payoff is well worth it.

Training is about instilling confidence and expanding knowledge and skill until these skills become ability. It’s also about challenging yourself and your assumptions. Don’t assume you are ready for what could be the worst moments of your life.

Choosing A CCW Trainer

DC Reed/Director

The decision to carry a concealed weapon (CCW) is an important and life-altering event. It can be based on an epiphany, perhaps that you and your family are not as prepared or protected as you thought. Conceivably you or someone you know has been the victim of a crime. Perhaps while watching the news you see that sudden violence can happen anywhere. Regardless, from this day forward your life will forever follow a new path, so the decision to seek out training and carry a concealed weapon should not be made casually.

There are ramifications to making a poor choice in your training. These consequences can be criminal and civil problems but also, in the gravest extreme, you could be forced to live with the knowledge that you failed to protect someone you love. Or, you could be killed yourself.

So, how do you choose wisely? What should you look for a CCW trainer? First, look for someone certified by the state and county where you live and find someone with a good reputation. Searching for an NRA certified instructor is also a good idea. Finding a reputable CCW trainer can reduce your personal liability and meet the standards set by the state. So the more stable, experienced, and more broadly certified an instructor is, the better.

Next choose someone who will be there for you when you need them in court. Fly-by-night CCW trainers are everywhere, and disreputable ones even offer to “expedite” the process for a price. Check references and ask to see certifications. Do they have a web presence, is the local Sheriff familiar with them, have they been in business for a reasonable amount of time? And most importantly, have they successfully testified in criminal and civil court on use of force issues?

In other words, don’t bargain shop. You may save $25 off your class, but in one week or ten years when you need them to defend you in court will they be there for you? Would their testimony on your behalf actually help? Does the person you choose to train you bring a credible, responsible, professional, and knowledgeable presence to your defense?

You must also consider the quality of your training. Realize that law enforcement, competition, and military trainers are probably proficient, but most are more familiar teaching students with a known background and a shared level of experience. Cops in most states typically get 400-800 hours of academy training, of which at least 40 is dedicated strictly to shooting and a great deal of the rest is on critical thinking, crisis management, and use of force decision making. Military and “Special Forces” trainers have often not worked in a non-permissive CONUS environment of strict legal liability. They don’t generally operate or train with those who live in the more restrictive and legally/politically scrutinized civilian world. Competition shooters may be basing their instruction on competitive techniques designed to be fast and accurate, but off the range are tactically unsound.

There are exceptions in each of the categories above and many of the very best instructors have this type of background, but you must be sure they understand the uniqueness to training civilian CCW students–students with considerably different past training and different legal authority/constraints than the audience to which they are accustomed.

Remember that often the exact curriculum is probably set by the state, so a reputable instructor will follow this agenda. Someone who “goes off the reservation” so to speak may actually increase your liability. Typically, a CCW class is to shooting what a Hunter Safety course is to hunting. If you want more detailed and advanced shooting instruction, you will likely have to attend a separate class.

Once you have obtained basic CCW certification you will likely seek out more self-defense education. How good is good enough when it comes to protecting your life? How can you benchmark your skills to a known standard of self-defense to be sure in yourself?

Beyond the basics of shooting is the ever-expanding world of critical thinking, dynamic movement, and proxemics. In the next article we’ll discuss more progressive training and what to look for in an advanced firearms instructor.

CCW Handbags For Women

DC Reed/Director

CCW Handbags For Women’s Concealed Carry

I get asked all the time by women I train about methods for carry and women’s fashion.

Like I’d know.
But I have trained and do know a lot of armed ladies and female police/military folks.

Almost all major leather holster makers have catalogs that show specially designed holsters for women and purses with gun compartments.

A couple of cops and past students recommend
The Well Armed Woman

You can also find dozens at Amazon and eBay (Montana West brand is popular)


Galco Gunleather
Gun Handbags

I make no claim as to the quality or ease of use for obvious reasons, and definitely prefer and teach strong side hip carry. But women have unique issues, clothing, and situations where it’s either in the bag or not at all.

So get a bag that is designed to securely hold and allow proper and easy access to your CCW handgun. Also train and download CCW Guardian.

Safe Training

DC Reed/Director

When you seek out training, do you look for safe, familiar courses? Or something harder?

The only way to really know how you will do in a critical incident (other than surviving a real world experience) is through challenging training.

You have to test yourself against a known standard of performance, then push yourself to improve. If you always “train down” and stay comfortable you will always have a false sense of your ability.

If you are enjoying yourself and performing easily in training, excelling – hearing and doing nothing unfamiliar – you are in the wrong class.

Training that’s difficult, complex, and a little over your head is what you should seek out. A course that bases its teaching off known standards that are proven to work. You should like what you’re doing of course, but always be a little concerned that without your best, most serious and concerned effort, you won’t pass.

The consequences of failure in a hard training course are a better awareness of your true abilities under stress. You may not like it, but you now know what you have to work on to improve. You still go home.

The decision to brush yourself off, check your ego, and then dedicate time and effort to do the work to increase your ability, to be better prepared than you were …

That’s up to you.

The Purpose Of Training

DC Reed/Director

Training is about instilling confidence and expanding knowledge and skill until they become ability.

Ability to perform a complex and critical function, under tremendous stress, without having to think through every step.

Its also about challenging yourself and your assumptions. Don’t assume you are ready for what could be the worse moments of your life.
Spend a few rounds – strike steel to stone so to speak – to achieve an edge.

The difference could be one half a second, one inch, or even one round.

The Boy Scouts have had it right for over a hundred years when they say, “BE Prepared” and not “Think about getting prepared.”

CCW Tips And Tactics I

DC Reed/Director

Carrying a concealed firearm for person defense is a serious decision requiring a good deal of confidence in your personal abilities. It is a responsibility not only under the law but to yourself and those you would protect. It can permanently change how you dress, how you interact with others, and the standards for your behavior and decision making.

Regardless of your personal reasons for deciding to carry a firearm you will want to trust that it is a reliable and accurate weapon, and that you know what your abilities are to safely and effectively defend yourself with it.

This document is not a substitute for professional training nor is it an attempt to meet state laws regarding CCW training. It is simply some tips gathered from our courses and several subject matter experts to assist in your continuing training and safety.


The laws for Concealed Carry, often referred to as CCW, may differ from state to state but all agree on one critical matter. The firearm must be concealed. Generally the ability to adequately conceal a firearm is based on four factors: your body size/type, the size/type of the firearm, the type/construction of the holster, and the concealing garment(s).

  • a) Your body type and your size can dictate what you are able to conceal. A short-waisted and petit person would not likely properly hide a full sized 1911 handgun, whereas a long torso’ed or tall person may be able to pull it off. If you’re smaller, look for holsters and concealing garments that allow you to wear a handgun high and slightly behind your strong side hip –or inside the pants. (For instance larger framed or heavy persons may be able to wear a weapon at the hip level,but have a problem with inside the pants wear. Smaller framed people may not be able to carry a weapon inside the pants at all.) Try several different holsters and concealing garments. Remember, the goal of a firearms carried under your CCW permit is to be comforting, not necessarily comfortable. If too uncomfortable however, that firearm you need may be left at home or in the car.
  • b) The size and type of firearm go to your abilities to shoot accurately and just fast enough.You want a firearm that is accurate with enough power to do the job. Too powerful and it may be “too much gun” for effective defensive purposes. Larger weapons are the most challenging to conceal and require the greatest adaptation of your clothing, movement, and life style. Small, pocket-sized weapons may be easy to carry, but more difficult to draw and shoot accurately. 25 ACP and 32ACP weapons carry easily but are considered marginal for stopping an aggressor, while 9mm and 40 S&W fare much better in power but are larger and heavier. Choose first what you can shoot accurately, conceal effectively, and alters your lifestyle and movement the least. A complete alteration of how you dress,move, and act to suit a particular weapon requires a great deal of dedication and serious training. Whether that is worth the change is up to you.
  • c) Whichever size weapon you choose, you will need a holster. Holster type and construction is a Master’s degree discussion with strong opinions on many sides of the issue. Generally speaking, a strong side hip holster that holds the weapon securely and affords a proper grip while the gun is in the holster is preferred. It must be able to remain open while empty so that re-holstering can be accomplished with one hand. Holsters can be made of made of Nylon, Kydex (a hard plastic like material) and leather. Leather has a traditional look and feel, and is ideal for a belt holster. Kydex is popular for its rigidity, long life, and retention. Nylon offers the most flexibility, and is an ideal material for holsters that fit inside pockets. The key is security. A holster should hold a gun securely, but not so tightly that it can’t be drawn quickly. The balance can be difficult to achieve, but your life may depend on it. The holster must also be designed for the specific weapon to be carried. Never trust a generic “one size fits all” holster. This means likely you will spend more on the quality needed – but why spend hundreds on a firearm then go cheap on the main method of security as well as proper carry and concealment?
  • d) Where as in colder climates or seasons jackets and coats offer easier concealment; summer months and higher temps challenge concealment tactics. Wear shirts designed to be untucked or pants a little large to allow an inside the waistband holster. If wearing a belt holster, ensure you have a high quality belt that is designed to carry the weight and balance of a holstered gun (See almost all major holster and leather manufacturers’ brochures. They make belts as well.) Dress belts or regular clothing belts are insufficient and lead to a common CCW giveaway called ‘tugging’. This is where a person concealing a weapon often pulls up the pants or has to grip the holstered gun and shift their pants up under their shirt due to too weak/thin a belt or a too heavy weapon. Rule of thumb: if while moving, sitting, and walking normally the weapon/ holster combo shifts or hurts – something’s not right.

The main giveaway in concealing a weapon is behavior. Avoid touching or ‘checking’ your concealed weapon. Avoid holding one arm against the concealed weapon while the other moves naturally.

You can have a friend or family member look at you to determine if the weapon is visible through your concealing garment or if it presses against the clothing in such as a way as to reveal its outline (called ‘printing’).

Most CCW states have provisions against ‘Brandishing’ or similar language. Not properly concealing your weapon may lead to a suspension of your permit. Check your local state laws.

CCW Tips And Tactics, Part II

DC Reed/Director

Part II

Choosing a CCW Weapon

The choice of a good CCW firearm is ultimately a personal concern and based on your abilities. Some people prefer the simplicity of a good revolver, but the thickness of even a .38 caliber can make it harder to conceal. Semi-automatics are slimmer to a degree and often easier to hide on your body, but require a bit more training and familiarity depending on the exact make and model.

Most firearms that are easy to conceal will be smaller with shorter barrels and lighter weights. While easy to conceal they will not be as accurate, probably have very minimal sights, and if too light may be hard to control more than for the first shot. This can create a good deal of concern unless your target is very close or you train a great deal.

Firearms that are a bit larger with longer barrels will be more versatile, easier to shoot effectively, and more accurate. They will have better sights, generally better trigger pulls, and with the right gear still be concealable. Weight and size of the weapon become the factor here, so your decisions as to belt, holster, and concealing garments are more critical. The key factor to concealing a larger firearm is not barrel length, but the length and thickness of the grip or butt. Long, squared off firearm grips print easily when you are moving or bent over.

So, when considering a specific weapon, some things to consider:

  • a) Can you grip the weapon properly with one hand? Can you effectively grip the weapon as high as possible on its backstrap? The higher in your hand you can hold the weapon, the more efficient, the more controlled, and more accurate the firing sequence will be. Does the weapon feel too heavy or off balance? (if so- you may not carry it as often. Understand, however, the more heft to a well balanced weapon generally the less the perceived recoil.) A too light weapon may be hard to control and thus lose efficiency while firing. A too heavy or imbalanced weapon may be too hard to hold effectively on target.
  • b) Can you obtain a good purchase on the trigger with the first pad of your index finger and hold the weapon securely with one hand? Can you smoothly press the trigger fully through to its break efficiently and without jerking? A ‘good’ trigger is a bit hard to define and somewhat individual in nature. Also Single Action triggers (Colt 1911/ Browning P35), Striker Fired triggers (Glock, S&W M&P) and Double Action triggers (Beretta, Sig Sauer, most revolvers) all have very different mechanisms and the merits/faults of their respective triggers should be compared.) Generally though, a good trigger is first – no ‘longer’ than necessary, no more ‘heavy’ (hard to pull) than necessary, and have no more ‘over-travel’ (movement after the shot breaks) than necessary. Then, during follow through, have as short a ‘reset’ as possible.
  • c) Does the weapon have functional easy to see (for your eyes) sights? Just bright paint or colored sights do not equate with being easy to pick up under stress. Pay particular attention to the front sight. During a proper draw stroke and presentation, does the front sight stand out against various backgrounds? In all lighting conditions?
  • d) Are there readily available parts and accessories, particularly magazines and quality holsters? Buying the latest thing may mean no specific holster being offered for months.
  • e) With a proper two handed grip and good quality ammunition, is the weapon and caliber controllable during realistic firing conditions? There is a tradeoff between ‘comfortable’ and ‘comforting’, meaning it may be easy to fire but of an inferior caliber/bullet configuration that won’t adequately protect you. Go for the most powerful weapon you can fire accurately – and to a somewhat lesser degree, rapidly. (A person might fire one shot from a .44 magnum accurately enough, but their follow-up shots are very slow.)
  • f) Does the weapon have a reputation for reliability? Some guns seem to require constant attention from an armorer. Others have established records for firing hundreds or thousands of rounds without a hiccup. Do your research, and pay particular attention to tests with military style weapons and police contracted weapons.
  • g) Last but ABSOLUTELY NOT least- accuracy. If you cannot hit with it- get rid of it! Assuming you’ve had training and know the fundamentals of an accurate shot, and given you’ve tested a variety of ammo (and absent a hard dedication to master that one gun) you must understand that some weapon/ammo combos are just not for you.

I have had students who desperately wanted to be a 1911 45 ACP shooter but were never quite able to match the accuracy and speed they achieved readily with a Glock 9mm.

My advice, learn to love the gun you can reliably hit with. A well placed set of shots -on target and on time – beats poor and late performance, but with a cool gun, every time!
