Teaching the Basics
If you are a firearms instructor, be sure you are
teaching all the basics, not just some of them. I had
been a police officer for over 15 years before anyone
explained the importance of grip and taught me the
correct grip when shooting a handgun. I was on the
job for nearly 20 years before follow through was
clearly taught. Today I still see officers violating
many of the basic safety rules (number one being
finger on the trigger too soon). All this "good
stuff" should not be reserved for just the S.W.A.T.
cops. Lets be safe out there.
