Real World Experience? Real World Experience?

We received an e-mail at Endeavor a few days ago from a potential student, who was looking to “vet” our staff before coming in to train. In the e-mail they said they were very serious and picky about who they trained with and (in short) they wanted to know what type of real world experience our instructors had.

Now first and foremost, I admire what they are doing at the root of the matter. I think it is very important to make sure you are getting the best possible training and I certainly have no issue with her asking, nor do I have any issue answering her questions.

Carrying A Handgun Without a Belt

For handgun carry when you’re just going about your daily life, most people are not kitted out the same way they are when taking a defensive firearms course or when practicing those skills. Sweat pants and a t-shirt are more likely to be your clothes of choice for running errands or doing chores around the house and yard. WATCH NOW

Two men have been arrested in connection with an attempted burglary in Indiana that ended after the homeowner used a gun to scare off the intruders. A woman, who was alone in her home, said a white van was driven up to her residence, and shortly thereafter, she heard the doorbell. Because she didn’t recognize the van, wasn’t expecting any deliveries and couldn’t see who rang the doorbell, the woman didn’t answer the door. Soon, she heard the chime for the rear door. The woman retrieved her firearm and called the police. She then told the suspects that she had a gun, and they ran back to the van and drove off. Police have arrested the suspects and are investigating whether they are also responsible for other burglaries in the neighborhood. (The Times, Valparaiso, IN, 2/11/16)
