Gander Mountain Academy Instructor Jeff Kersten goes over the steps involved in presenting a firearm from the holster. Shooters are generally most interested in learning smooth & fast presentation skills for either competition or personal defense purposes. The process taught at GMA will serve both pursuits perfectly. The general concepts are universal, regardless of the type of gun being carried or the position on the body. Once you understand the fundamentals, you can add the appropriate maneuvers to get under layers of concealment or defeat retention devices on your chosen holster. Working on the Gander Mountain Virtual Range allows you to safely develop your presentation skills with or without an instructor to assist.
