Re: Mandatory skill sets

In my opinion the following list should be considered a minimum set of skills for anyone who carries a gun.


1. Safety.
2. Proper attitude and mindset.
3. Knowledge of applicable laws with regard to the use of force.


1. Drawing from the holster
2. Use of cover and concealment
3. Reloading
4. Low light shooting skills

The above are what I personally believe are the minimum requried skills for anyone who carries or owns a gun for defense. While there are several additional levels of training which can and should probably be built upon this foundation, these are the minimums which every shooter should work to achieve proficiency in.
