Another Class of Trained Public Guardians Graduated

We don’t want to train everyone who wants a concealed carry license.  We only want to train those who are serious about learning how to defend their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

This past weekend we graduated another class of advanced, concealed carry guardians.  They did not complete just another “concealed carry’ class, like those conducted at gun shows, gun shops or in rented hotel rooms. They completed over 15 hours of advanced, tactical, handgun training.  You read that correctly, over 15 hours.

These advanced, trained graduates will have your back while you are shopping, fueling your vehicle or attending church services.Rest assured, there are trained people out there carrying concealed firearms among you.  They may be far and few between, but they are there. 

We make every effort to train as many people as possible.  But, we can only train those who register to be qualified to carry a deadly weapon in public.

We don’t want to train everyone who wants a concealed carry license.  We only want to train those who are serious about learning how to defend their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

Others conduct classes to qualify people to apply for a concealed carry license. We conduct classes to not only to qualify people to apply for a concealed carrry license, we qualify people to carry a deadly weapon in public.

If your concealed carry class did not look like the photos above, you may want to contact us for real, concealed carry, firearms training.

Not all concealed carry classes are alike.

Considering taking a concealed carry class? You may want to consider this . . .

There is more to owning and using a gun than just knowing how to pull a trigger.

Not all concealed carry classes are alike.

Unless specifically stated otherwise, “concealed carry classes” do NOT teach how to handle and use a handgun.

They do NOT teach:

  • the handling of a handgun
  • the firing of a handgun
  • the loading, unloading and reloading of a handgun
  • how manage handgun malfunfunctions

To learn the techniques listed above, you have to take a handgun/pistol training class.

Maybe you or someone you know already took a concealed carry class. Did it look like this . . .

or like this?

If the “concealed carry” class you took did not include a trip the the range and the firing of a real handgun, using live ammunition, firing a minimum of 50 rounds, you attended a certificate mill class, that in all likelyhood, was more of an insurance sales seminar, not a handgun training class.

Winter Haven Gun Show

The February 26th 2022 Winter Haven Gun Show was the worst!

The gun show, put on by USA Gun Shows of Florida and conducted at the Winter Haven Garden Conference Center, February 26th and 27th, was by far the worst. The venue, at least the areas used, was too small. One area used was the hotel’s bar. Yes, the bar.

A vendor actually displayed his goods on the bar, while standing behind it. A bar complete with drink glasses on the shelves. The only thing missing were the liquer bottles. At the other end of the room was the fast food counter and grill. Dining tables were available for those who wished to grab a sandwich and cold drink.

There was totally inadequate vendor space. Two people could hardly walk by one another between tables. The other room being used, which was actually appropriate for the given use, was too small and the AC was not working. Again, there was little aisle space for people to walk.

For the few vendors there were, there was lots of ammunition for sale, but very few guns, new or used.

Regarding parking: That was another issue . . . totally inadequate. Parking was a nightmare. The venue was a hotel with hotel guests and adjacent businesses and property owners were not cooperative.

USA Gun Shows of Florida does not need to return to Winter Haven or Polk County for that matter.

The Ammunition Shortage – Solution to the problem . . .

Slow down and control your fire! Buy only what ammunition you currently need from legitimate retail outlets or gun clubs.

Starve the scalpers!

Scalpers Are Driving Up Ammunition Costs and Contributing to the Ammo Shortage
https://www.outdoorlife.com/story/guns/scalpers-driving-up-ammo-prices-and-ammunition-shortage/

OUTDOOR LIFE – FEB 12, 2021

Yes, the shelves are empty. Yes, backorders are the norm. Yes, prices have skyrocketed since May 2020. However, there is a solution. Slow down and control your fire.

Although not to this degree, ammunition shortages have occured before.

  • 2008 – 2010 – The 2008 election of President Barack Obama triggered increased sales of both firearms and ammunition. USA Today
  • December 2012 – 2016 – In December 2012, a new wave of panic buying was driven by the perceived likelihood of new firearm control laws being passed by Congress and state governments in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Curently, ammuniton can be found readily available online, on certain websites and at gun shows. But, at what price? The ammunition being sold online by private vendors and at gun shows is either old stock that has been setting on the floor in the back of someone’s closet or has been purchased in bulk from and gun shop or other retail outlet and marked up 2, 3 or 4 times the purchase price.

Recommendation

Slow down and control your fire! Refuse to pay the inflated prices, demanded by entrepreneurial, kitchen table scalpers selling on the Internet and at gun shows. Buy only what ammunition you currently need from legitimate retail outlets or gun clubs.

On the manufacturing front

Ammunition is being manufactured at a pace not seen since World War II.

Official statement from Jason Vanderbrink, president Federal / CCI / Speer / Remington Ammunition . . .

Economics 101Quid foro feret

The bottom line: Buy only the ammuniton you need to keep up your skills and a little extra for any unexpected developments, and only buy from legitamate retail vendors. Starve out the scalpers. Be patient, ammunition will once again become readily available and the prices will come down.

AMERICA’S HUNTERS Pretty Amazing!

For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.

WISCONSIN Outdoors

A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin …. Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!

Over the last several months, Wisconsin’s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.

(That’s more men under arms than in Iran .. More than France and Germany combined.)

These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms, And NO ONE WAS KILLED.

That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the Hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. It’s millions more.

The point?

America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower! Hunting… it’s not just a way to fill the freezer.

It’s a matter of national security.

That’s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.

Food for thought, when next we consider gun control. Overall it’s true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don’t possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain… What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens???

For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.
