In this article I am going to talk about something that ALL Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants will ALL agree on; and that is Students, Clients and people in general that waste our resources. What are our resources as Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants?
Many people who may identify as either a Client or Student waste our resources by doing the following:
NOT KEEPING UP WITH NEW TECHNIQUES
PERPETUATING BAD COGNITION
LACK OF DEDICATION
When Clients or Students engage in these kinds of pathologies it creates nothing more than confusion, animosity between Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants, unnecessary backtracking, endless frustration, unproductive training sessions. Look I think that I can speak for ALL Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants that nothing is more frustrating than having a Client or Student who wilfully fails to practice at the very least the core fundamentals of Firearm Ownership, Marksmanship and the the proper shooting techniques and shooting foundations!
I want you assholes to understand something – SHOOTING IS A PERISHABLE SKILL! It’s simply not fair to the Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants to sign up for class or whatever shooting related training events that we are giving and not seek to align yourself with any sort of preparation and long term education and training opportunities!
I’m going to also say this is downright disrespectful to Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants to complain that what we are training you on “is not working” when you as a Client or Student have fail to put ANY EFFORT into personal training to aid in the retention of the ANY shooting lesson, session or technique on your own.
Furthermore, I think I can also speak for ALL Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants that it is not fair to come to us when you have been through at least 5 different Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants because you as a Client or Student are seriously so fucked up in terms of shooting because you can't past your qualification course of fire or shooting exams (whatever that might be).
Remember, just because you have a gun doesn’t mean you can shoot. Just because you took some punk ass NRA Course doesn’t make you a Gun-Fighter and just because you have a bullshit Conceal Carry License or Conceal Carry Weapons Permit doesn't mean you actually know what the hell you are doing when it comes to defending your life with a firearm! Put in another way, just because you have a Driver’s License doesn’t mean that you qualify as a fucking NASCAR Driver!
In all honesty, I’m getting tired of seeing not only myself but other Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants having to always lecture you Clients and Students to the point of infinity out there on the importance of always setting some time to the side in order to practice, keep yourself abreast of new shooting techniques, reading, being cognitive of your surrounding and knowing the conditions of your firearms, and being dedicated to training and generally keeping yourself in a position to preserve not only your life but the lives of those that matter to you the most!
If you identify as a Client or Student that has some shooting experience and you purposely, wilfully, and simply inexplicably perpetuate the idea that you do not have to train for whatever reason; I'm going to say this:
"We Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants are god-damn fucking tired of correcting your god-damn mistakes and putting up with your excuses as to why you “can’t do this and can’t do that”!"
I for one find it mighty strange that many Clients and Students can find the ability to go to a fucking Jay-Z concert, spend money that they don’t have on shit that they don’t need. But then when they ass get Raped, become a victim of an Armed Robbery, Home Invasion, Kidnapped, get shot, or beaten to all shit then they want to come to us with their problems and a check to come fix their shit!
News fucking flash it’s too late asshole. The reason why we train is to PREVENT, PREPARE and PROTECT (NCDOC slogan) ourselves so shit don’t go sideways in the first place! You lazy motherfuckers! We Firearm Educators, Instructors, Advisors and Consultants are not “THE VICTIM’S FIRE EXTINGUISHER”. Meaning don't just call us when there is a fire! Just like a real Fire Extinguisher you must maintain and service it regularly! So that means that you must find some way to train regularly!
Wrapping things up, to all you that identify as a Client or Student – train at least once a god-damn month. Train at home for FREE for at least 5 to 10 minutes or reloading, stance, breath control, sight alignment and sight picture and grip. God-damnit – do something other than trying to hustle your way into having skill (which you simply cannot do). You have to train, you have to go to the Range and you have to have dedication to preserving your own life.
I hear people who own guns clown people that are Anti-Gun all time about how much they are wilful victims and co-conspirators in their own demise. Hell, for fucks sake many of these motherfuckers got guns and in some case several god-damn guns and don’t even know how to use any of them! Put all that bullshit on an AR-15 and Red Dots on handguns and don’t even train once a got damn month! Three words:
