As the Firing Range Lead Management Authority, MT2 is constantly looking to support local businesses and keep our employees up to date on firearms safety and protection. Earlier this year we hosted a concealed carry training event at our Corporate office. The class was taught by Chief Gallegos who is the CEO, Owner, and Lead Instructor of Tactical Self Defense and Firearms Company here in Colorado. He is a former law enforcement professional and communications specialist and an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor.
The class started with a PowerPoint by Chief explaining some important do’s and don’ts of gun safety. He explained that every county has a different law pertaining to concealed carry so be sure to do your research before traveling with a gun into a new area.
Below are some of the teaching points we learned from the class:
- A lot of schools and post offices, etc. do not allow guns even if your county authorizes you to have a concealed carry.
- You cannot drink or be under the influence of any kind while handling a gun. His advice: if you are going out drinking with your buddies, probably best to leave the gun at home! If you are pulled over and you have on your concealed carry gun, be sure to tell the officers immediately and ask how they’d like to proceed.
- Never EVER point your gun at anyone else when you are disassembling it, sometimes things get stuck in the chamber and can go off.
- If you are going to shoot, shoot to kill because the legal ramifications are extensive if you can’t prove you were being attacked.
- Shopping for guns is always a good idea because every gun manufacturer has a different grip/style. You want to be super comfortable when holding your gun so if you needed to protect yourself you won’t hesitate.
- During the class, he picked a couple of volunteers to come up and hold the guns he brought with him and explained the best way to hold them.
- At the end of the class, Chief set up a simulator so we could practice shooting at a target which was fun!
- We also all were given certificates that we can mail in for our concealed carry license
- He suggested lots of range practice. Practice everything from loading your gun, shooting it, and disassembling it.
