From GunMag Warehouse
Carrying a gun is (or should be) a gestalt of conditions, not just a mastery of marksmanship. It’s as much about being a good human being, controlling emotions, and practicing compassion as it is honing weapon manipulation skills and practicing situational awareness. A responsible armed citizen doesn’t need to be a Tier One Ninja, but does need to be ready for the hard part.
And the hardest part of any defensive shoot occurs prior to and after the trigger press.
GunMag Warehouse is proud to announce the launch of GunMag Training.
GMT will be the instructional arm of GMW. It will be led by Daniel Shaw, formerly of Shaw Strategies and the USMC. Additional cadre members will be announced in coming months.
GMT’s mission will be to prepare those who carry a gun for such difficulties, and to promote a well-trained, reasoned, and humanistic armed citizenry.
Because of GMT’s atypical approach, students will gain more than a high level of technical proficiency.
GunMag Training courses will address such things as:
Life safety as it relates to the armed citizen and the use of force
Contextual safety beyond the traditional four rules
Effective weapon handling
Mental and emotional preparation prior to an Event
Pragmatic expectation of what happens after an Event
Awareness of positional and locational engagement
Practical understanding of the spherical environment
Practical understanding of the public environment
Practicable marksmanship on demand not command
Shaw, a retired Marine infantry leader and combat veteran, will pull from his extensive military career and a lifetime of experience to combine tactical acumen with the moral ethos appropriate to carrying a firearm.
Courses will begin almost immediately with firearms training classes in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and others in Ohio (including Shaw’s seventh year teaching at the Ohio Tactical Officers Association Training Conference). Additional classes and locations will be announced soon.
