So, you’ve decided to get a CWP and buy a gun, or maybe you already have. Now what?!
You’ve heard that you need to practice with some frequency and you think that’s a good idea, but you keep putting it off. Maybe, like some people, you even carry your weapon unloaded or not “at the ready;” that is to say not ready to shoot without loading or “racking” a round, or, worse yet, it’s in your car when you need it.
You might even have signed up for legal protection in case you do have to use deadly force. I might add, that is a very sensible thing to do. A great source for that by the way is www.ccwsafe.com. For only $99 per year at current, they become your only call and can save your bacon.
Look, the last thing any of us wants to do is shoot someone. However, if you’re going to carry a gun, you better be prepared and you need to consider all of the variables ahead of time because we live in a day and age where it is becoming increasingly possible that you may have to defend yourself or someone else using deadly force.
Just like learning to drive a car or doing anything else that requires skill, you need to get yourself some professional training before you strap on your firearm. I’m not talking about simply going to the range and learning how to put your rounds in the black. Anyone can learn how to take their time to do that shooting at a piece of paper that isn’t shooting back.
The reality is that if/when you find yourself in a situation that requires the use of a firearm, you need to be ready and reflexive, because what happens next does not allow for second guessing yourself. Bear in mind, there is an imminent threat to someone’s life taking place; most probably yours, and you need to neutralize that threat.
Thankfully, there is a solution for this in West Palm Beach.
About eight months ago a new "gun shop" opened up. Yes, you can simply buy or sell a gun there if you want, however “Guns and Range, Inc.” is much, much more than a gun store with great prices.
It’s more like a defense college where one can practice and test on the state of the art video range with a number of different real life scenarios; or practice on the live range with moveable targets. Additionally, while both of these are serious learning tools, they’re also both a lot of fun.
Owner Alex Shkop and his expert staff offer a number of affordable courses for the beginner and the more advanced shooter, with flexible hours to work around just about any schedule.
They are located just off of Parker St. at 1016 Clare Ave, Unit 1 & 2 in West Palm Beach. You can reach them by phone at 561-402-7555 or visit their website at www.gunsandrange.com. Either way, this shop is the real deal and you don’t want to buy anything related to firearms or training until you’ve paid them a visit.Add a comment
