I would like to discuss something that, in firearms instructing circles, seems to be the metaphorical mutant cousin living under the basement stairs. It’s something that many instructors (and shooters) want to believe doesn’t exist
There are many things that I like about my job. Teaching at Black Wing Shooting Center, handling new guns and gear, and learning from courses, articles, videos, podcasts and blogs by some of the best in the business. Heck, I’m lucky enough to put an article of my own up from time to time. But there is a very specific downside to doing what I do: I call it carry-gun complacency.
