Learning to be A Gunfighter Part I

“With great power comes great responsibility”

-Voltaire 1832 / Stan Lee 1962

No one can argue that handguns today when paired with modern ammunition can be powerful and devastating tools.  Therefore what is the responsibility of individual gun owners / CCW permit holders who choose to carry these tools on a daily or periodic basis?  I can lease a Bobcat front-end loader/excavator but I’d be a fool to deploy it on a home improvement project because I have a credit card & FL driver’s license.

With this series I hope to convey the thought processes and subsequent training and self-education I have pursued (and continue to pursue) in order to become a “gunfighter”! Veritas Training Academy co-founder and mentor, Mike Magowan, regularly states in his CCW training classes that if someone starts shooting at you then by definition, “you are in a gunfight …and you better be a gunfighter!”  If you are attacked by someone with or without a weapon and your best option is to draw your firearm,”you are in a gunfight…and you better be a gunfighter!”  We are responsible for every projectile that leaves the barrel of our firearm!

To shape an individual into an effective gunfighter requires ongoing training that fuses the mind, body, & firearm into an undefeatable human weapon system with the understanding that shooting is never going to happen in the real world like it does on the range”
