This is an illustrated lecture and demonstration program, directed at both officers and civilians who carry handguns concealed during the course of their daily activities.
Traditionally, little if any time has been spent on the subject of Concealed Carry.
In the past, it was often assumed that proficiency on the range transfers to the ability to successfully carry, conceal and ultimately produce a firearm under the stress of a life-threatening situation.
Thankfully, for the last several decades, the flaws in such thinking have become more obvious, and people (both civilians and law enforcement officials) have recognized the need to be more critical in their equipment selection and more comprehensive in their training with it.
This program will deal with overall concepts as well as the building block-like components that must be considered in order to successfully carry and produce a firearm from a concealed location on and (in some cases) off the body.
From gun and holster selection to carrying environments and activities; from clothing to physical shape and conditioning; from women's issues to accessories; we will look at this subject from these prospectives and more, in order to come up with basic guidelines to serve the audience in both studying and selecting equipment and employment methods with a more critical (and informed) eye in the future.
