Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Basic Requirements for students?

S12 students must be able to safely draw and fire a loaded handgun. Students should be capable and confident in the safe handling of firearms. This encompasses:

  • Minding the Muzzle Direction at All Times - If you can’t control where you are pointing a weapon, should you be training with it?
  • Keeping ones finger off the trigger at any time the muzzle is not pointed at something that could be or should be shot! Fingers don’t belong on triggers unless you are in the act of shooting.
  • A basic understanding of how to safely draw a pistol from a holster and also re holster said pistol.

Beyond that, a good pistol training reference is our video “How to Shoot a Pistol” on the Carry Trainer YouTube Channel (see below).
