I really enjoy teaching. One of the courses I enjoy teaching the most is my Introduction to Fighting Handgun Fundamentals and Ohio CCW course. There are a couple of reasons why. First, many of the students who are taking a course at this level are fairly clean slates. From a teaching standpoint, it is much easier to get the point across that I want to get across when I don’t have to work to dispel years of misinformation, bad habits, and misconceptions. Second, those that do have a firearms background and an open mind give me an opportunity to help them understand the difference between shooting and fighting. Finally, in my CCW course, more than any other there seems to be a density of people who have a desperate need for the information because of their life circumstances. Truly rewarding to work with all of my students, but the ones that need the information now have a special place in my courses. Today we are going to take a look at one of the questions students ask more often than anything else and some ideas we need to consider before we can answer the question.
