        I grew up in NE Minnesota shooting a
        .22 at 7-yrs old. Started bird hunting and deer hunting at a very young age. I
        joined the USAF (delayed enlistment) as a senior in HS, and wanted to be an SP
        (cop).  I took the ASVAB and found out I did well in Electronics, so went
        in as an Electronic Systems Specialist, or spark chaser. While in basic I was
        not surprised to score in the top 10% of my squadron for shooting, hence I
        received the Marksman ribbon.

        Fast forward many years and as a
        civilian who is watching everything happening in our country, and growing
        increasingly concerned living and working back in NW Minnesota, I decided to
        get my concealed carry license.

        I reckoned myself a good shot. So I
        took the class and started carrying, and as I like to say, I didn’t know what I
        didn’t know. It wasn’t until a colleague invited me to attend MVT’s Defensive
        Concealed Handgun class that I learned all those things I didn’t know. For
        instance, I bought a new (popular) handgun and holster for the training, only
        to find out nearly immediately that it was too large for my hand. A BAD choice,
        for me. And it became quite apparent very quickly why.

        That said, the things I learned in
        that training will carry forward into carrying every day with the correct gear,
        knowledge and experience to be able to decide when I need to stay out of or
        remove myself from a specific environment or situation, or when it is time to
        stand up and fight. It’s SO much more than drawing and shooting…it’s having
        the right mind-set to know quickly if in fact, that it is your circus and these
        are (or aren’t) your monkeys.

        As Scott likes to (correctly) drill
        home, your head will keep you out of trouble FAR MORE than your gun. But
        if/when the time comes that you must stand up and fight, KNOW with confidence
        that you will have been provided the proper techniques and training to save the
        lives of yourself and those around you. Try to put a value on that! Can’t be
        done!  

        Much thanks to Scott and MVT!

        Todd
