MDTS Concealed Carry Principles

PRACTICAL CONCEALED CARRY SKILLS, 9/11, ONTARIO NY. Only a few of these left this year, don't put it off until next year, get into one now! MDTS Principles of Concealed Carry: 1) "Possession does not equal proficiency” – Clint Smith 2) Carry your gun, it is useless if you don’t have it when you need it. 3) Limit cover garments to one layer over concealed handgun. 4) One of the few elements we have absolute control over in a fight is the equipment we bring to it; be prepared by investing in quality guns and equipment. 5) Avoid purchasing clothing one size bigger to conceal the wrong handgun in the wrong holster for you and your body type. Buy guns, holsters and support gear that fit you, your body type and current clothing choices. 6) Eliminate having to modifying cover garments to aid in clearing garment for access; have one-two robust methods of access that work with any type or garment regardless of design or weight. 7) Firearms must be reliable, serviceable, ready and accessible to both hands. 8) The firearms manual of arms should be relatively simple; it may not always be you utilizing it (i.e. wife, son or daughter). 9) Mechanical safeties, slide stop/release, de-cockers should be accessible when operating one handed WITHOUT compromising the final firing grip, strong & support sides. 10) Ammunition selected for carry must be reputable, factory loaded defense cartridge compatible with shooter and firearm. 11) Holsters should be rigid, secure, familiar, compatible to the carrier’s personal and environmental circumstances and allow one handed re-holstering. 12) At least one illumination tool, spare magazine, edged weapon and tourniquet should be available and accessible to both hands. 13) As a general rule, primary tools (tools you rely upon to protect your life i.e. -firearm, edged weapon) should be carried at the hips forward. Secondary and tertiary gear carried hips rearward. For defensive purposes a gun is only as good as you are at accessing and presenting it, under pressure. 14) Environmental awareness, situational awareness, physical awareness and proper concealment are the primary means of handgun weapon retention. #picoftheday #mdtstraining

MDTS Concealed Carry Principles:

General

“Possession does not equal proficiency” – Clint Smith

Carry your gun, it is useless if you don’t have it when you need it.

One of the few elements we have absolute control over in a fight is the equipment we bring to it; be prepared by investing in quality guns and equipment.

As a general rule, primary tools (tools you rely upon to protect your life i.e. -firearm, edged weapon) should be carried at the hips forward. Secondary and tertiary gear carried hips rearward. For defensive purposes a gun is only as good as you are at accessing and presenting it, under pressure.

Environmental awareness, situational awareness, physical awareness and proper concealment are the primary means of handgun weapon retention.

Clothing

Limit cover garments to one layer over concealed handgun.

Avoid purchasing clothing one size bigger to conceal the wrong handgun in the wrong holster for you and your body type. Buy guns, holsters and support gear that fit you, your body type and current clothing choices.

Eliminate having to modifying cover garments to aid in clearing garment for access; have one-two robust methods of access that work with any type or garment regardless of design or weight.

Firearms

Firearms must be reliable, serviceable, ready and accessible to both hands.

The firearms manual of arms should be relatively simple; it may not always be you utilizing it. It may be a wife, son or daughter.

Mechanical safeties, slide stop/release, de-cockers should be accessible when operating one handed WITHOUT compromising the final firing grip, strong & support sides.
