VARY THE DIS­TANCE

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - EXPERT’S CORNER -

I also train in en­gag­ing mul­ti­ple tar­gets at vary­ing dis­tances. Con­ven­tional train­ing when fac­ing mul­ti­ple as­sailants is that the clos­est should be en­gaged first. How­ever, if the clos­est has a hand­gun and one a few yards far­ther away has a ri­fle, the best tac­tic would prob­a­bly be to en­gage the far­ther one first.

I shoot at a range with hang­ing tar­gets and pep­per pop­pers be­tween 10 and 35 yards and of­ten prac­tice mov­ing among them putting quick dou­ble taps on tar­gets at dif­fer­ent ranges. Some­times, I in­cor­po­rate mov­ing be­hind cover.

By train­ing at dif­fer­ent dis­tances, not only will you im­prove your shoot­ing skills but also your re­ac­tion time. You will also learn more about the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of your carry guns so that you can judge at what dis­tances you can use ef­fec­tively them to en­gage an at­tacker.
