Going through CCW courses is an important step in becoming a responsible gun owner. However, it’s easy to think once you complete your classes and get your license that you are ready to shoot. But, have you ever been in a situation where you’ve been forced to make a split-second decision? Have you ever had to pull your gun from a concealed position? Are you sure in a moment of need, you’d have the confidence to pull the trigger?
These questions are common, and they are the exact reason our EVR team believes gaining your CCW license is only the first step. Marksmanship and gun handling can be taught and practiced, but having the right mindset and confidence to shoot a gun is a completely different skill set.
Shooting is all about precision. It’s about knowing your gun and your abilities so well that you don’t have to think about it. You can react in a way that feels second nature. If you’re not there yet, don’t panic. Building this kind of confidence takes time and practice.Luckily, you can take some steps to start working towards boosting your confidence level and becoming a responsible gun owner.
Ultimately, the best way to build confidence as a new gun owner is to engage in as much practice as possible. Learning to shoot doesn’t stop when you get your license. It’s a lifelong process that takes time, commitment, and dedication.
