Being a firearms instructor for over 25 years I have finally found a drill online that covers one area I go into in my classes that is not discussed very often. Shooting from the Ground. You can practice all parts of this drill, in the comfort of your home, when Dry Firing. You should practice it first dry firing paying attention not to sweep your body with the muzzle. I highly recommend you at least read it. Greg Ellifritz of Active Response Training does a fantastic job of covering this aspect of self defense training at https://www.activeresponsetrai...ting-from-the-ground.
I want to highly recommend that you join your states RKBA Organization. Owners and non-owners of firearms saw what happened in Virginia. The Dems took control and bans and confiscation took center stage. Only the people standing up in mass kept most from going through. The Virginia Citizens Defense League President stated that they didn’t start the Sanctuary Movement but they did help facilitate it and they did lead the Lobby day with 10’s of thousands showing up at the capitol. Their presence made a huge difference. So contact your State or Regional RKBA Org. Check them out and consider joining. State Orgs are leading the defense of our rights and deserve all the support we can give them.
These changes will be added on the appropriate documents at www.handgunlaw.us when they become effective.
