Who is responsible to protect us?

Firearms sales have continued to rise over the past decade and shows no signs of decline. These continually increasing sales can be attributed to at least two root causes, the belief that the anti-gun activists will convince legislators to completely ban gun sales in the U.S. and the current condition of the state of our economy. Private citizens want to purchase those firearms before they may be banned. Sales are also being fueled by the fact that budget shortfalls are forcing law-enforcement agencies across the country to lay-off the protectors and enforcers of the law while the courts are ordering the early release of the incarcerated offenders of the law due to overcrowding. Unfortunately the belief that law-enforcement is there to protect us is something that has been taught to us from the time we were small children. To the surprise of most citizens the high courts across our country have ruled that law-enforcement has no obligation to protect citizens. In addition top-cops from coast-to-coast are now stating the importance of self-protection. More jurisdictions are issuing permits to law-abiding citizens than ever before. Now more than ever it is becoming evident that the responsibility to protect ourselves as well as our loved ones and in some cases our property falls squarely on our shoulders.

Obligation to ourselves and society

Cary believes that as gun owners we have an obligation to ourselves and society to acquire the skills necessary to become proficient with those firearms. This goes beyond buying a box of shells and going to the range to shoot a few rounds. Most firearms owners never learn the basic fundamentals of handgun shooting. Without those fundamentals it is virtually impossible to improve your skills and prepare yourself for survival if forced into a lethal confrontation. There is a saying in the shooting community, under stress you always fall back to your current level of training. In other words we won't rise to the occasion and perform above what we have trained for. It has been shown that under a high stress situation your shooting accuracy may only be about half as good as your current skill level. If you have not learned the fundamentals then your skill level is 0! What is half as good as 0? You do the math. The proper fundamentals are learned through focused firearms training at Handgun Shooting Academy. All classes are limited to 6 clients to 1 instructor to provide a personalized experience.
