Dear PoliceOne Member,

I recently had a conversation with a top-tier firearms instructor about an incident he had with one of his students. Without going into details, suffice to say that the observation was made that this student, who is an otherwise top-notch shooter, had a few performance “issues” during training. A quick conversation revealed that the student was using a brand new holster. We’ve said it before, and we’ll probably say it again: when you get any new piece of gear, practice, practice, practice, removing it from, and replacing it to, your duty belt. This goes for all your tools, not just your firearm. As a reminder/reinforcer, I’ve decided to rerun this video tactical tip, first posted almost two years ago. Stay safe folks.
