You Asked For It

Here's the video y'all were clammoring for.  There have been some comments about how Tara should wear her purse and whether or not a purse carry is appropriate.  The point of the video (and the practice) is get competent with presenting her weapon from the position in which she carries it.  How she carries her gun is her choice (just as it's any of our choice).

What I'm impressed with, besides how smooth she is, is that she's taking the time to ensure that she's competent with it and that she didn't just throw her gun in her purse "just in case" like so many women do.




We were out practicing with multiple weapons that day, so no comments from the peanut galley about why she didn't draw from her hip :)

I'll be watching that a few times to see more on the draw. Way to go Tara, and thank you for being a poster child for us!

Damn. Tara's FAST! Why bother with a holster when you're that fast from a purse?

GunDiva, I will humbly agree that practicing one's chosen method of carry is of prime importance; however, I stand by my earlier statement that we should always be willing to rethink our chosen methods to see if there is a better way. Having said that, Tara does a smooth job of drawing and presenting. Now, y'all just need to find a way for her to safely practice under stress and duress.

Mr. K, I suggest the NRA "Refuse To Be A Victim" course. Covers a lot of ground, and instructors can create training modules for additional training. It also covers how to use your BRAIN first and foremost.
