Are you ready?

ready

Being prepared can mean different things to different people. Certainly, this relates to the value or risk of your tasks. Being ready to go to the grocery store vs being ready to see what that crash from the back of the house was are two different things? Or are they? In our modern times of asymmetrical warfare that potentially, if improbably, strikes where we conduct our day to day lives, preparedness takes on a whole new meaning. Having a good plan is a start to preparedness, but acquiring the skills to execute this plan are more important. Being able to use a handgun, bolt rifle, M4 carbine or combat shotgun can be a critical step to having an effective plan for preparedness.

A False sense of security

storm

With the ushering in of a new administration, the gun industry experienced what many have called the “Trump-slump”. In the run-up to the election, when it seemed the anti-gun candidate would prevail, many manufacturers and consumers stocked up on what was sure to be a scarcity of weapons component, firearms, ammunition and associated firearm products. What followed was a deep pause in firearms related purchases. But is it really time to breathe easily? Is this pause in the assault on firearms freedoms a turn of the tide or merely a pause in the war for the enemies of freedom to regroup?

The eye of the storm

If you aren’t purchasing firearms, ammunition, and critical weapons training, you are setting yourself up for failure. All the people who would have gladly produced legislation curtailing your freedoms did not go away with the last election. The bills to curtail your second amendment writes aren’t waiting to be written, they are merely waiting to be proposed as new legislation when the political climate is “right”. No matter what equipment you can acquire in the good times, that will be scarce in the coming bad times, are useless unless matched with top-tier training. At Texas Pistol and Rifle Academy, you can train with multiple weapon platforms and gain the proficiency you need to defend yourself and your family. Whether your preferred weapon is the pistol, bolt rifle, combat shotgun or M4 carbine you can develop a weapons expertise that is not limited to a specific platform. Make hay while the sun shines and train at Texas Pistol and Rifle Academy before the eye of the storm passes.

What keeps you up at night? – violence

violence

Watching the evening news nightly is probably not the best way to spend the evening. Although adults can easily see what’s supposed to be news versus sensationalism for ratings, sometimes the news stories grab us awake. Then they keep you awake, deep into the night. It’s easy for sane, peace-loving people to dismiss violence as the sole realm of the sociopath. But when you think about what’s “out there” do you think about the tools you may need to face it? Whether you favor the handgun, shotgun, M4 carbine, or rifle, you will find the tools you are looking for at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy in Whitewright Texas.

Sleep Well Again

Looking at violence through the lens of reason, it’s easy to see that it’s a tool like any other. When you step away from the socialization everyone receives in a civilized society, you can see the role that violence has played throughout human history. Whether violence is more prevalent today than any other time, who knows? But you can access the tool of violence for the purpose of your defense and be very effective. When you train to use firearms as an option for your defense at TPA you get more than how to use a firearm. You get the training under stress you need to do what you need to do to win the day. Each course offers multiple levels of training across a number of weapon systems.

Take the steps you need to sleep well again at night. Take the fear out of violence and put that tool in your toolbox at TPA.

Shooting is a diminishing skill

shooting

When people talk about retaining a skill over a lifetime you usually here “it’s like riding a bike.” The implication means that once you learn it, you never forget it. Many attach the same sticking power to shooting. They believe, having grown up around firearms that whatever they learned in their youth has stuck with them. The same phenomenon happens with retired military personnel. But whether you have shot a handgun, shotgun, M4 carbine, or bolt action rifle long in your past becomes nearly irrelevant if you haven’t maintained your skills. Although riding a bike may stick with you, shooting is a diminishing skill.

Back to the fundamentals

If every hunting season you find yourself dusting off your rifle, looking through the scope and dreaming about the trophy no one can blame you. But if at the same time you feel a small sense of dread seeing a big buck through the scope, there is only one cure. Refresh your skills at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy and reassure yourself that you can bring down that trophy. No one wants to hear about the shot you almost took. Or worse, about the shot you missed. At the end of the day, when everyone is back in the hunting camp bring back a story worth telling again and again. Too many hunters head into prime season without even a minimum of refresher training. At TPA you can make up for taking the entire off-season away from your gun in as little as two days.

Remember shooting is a diminishing skill – refresh them at TPA and bring home a trophy and story everyone wants to hear about today!

Prepared vs. Prepper – mental toughness

prepared

Natural disasters like the hurricane in Houston bring back memories of the Prepper movements of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Although these movements were packaged into reality television shows, the basis for these groups remains the same. Historically, natural disasters are part of life on planet earth. But before you sell the house and pack the family into a salt mine or decommissioned missile silo, ask yourself this. Is preparation physical or mental? Can you really be prepared if you have all the gasoline, water, and food but are mentally fragile? Mental toughness is created through training under stress. And this stress inoculation is exactly what you get when you take firearms training at Texas Pistol and Rifle Academy in Whitewright Texas.

Prepared is 99% mental

No doubt another disaster is on the horizon. But there are ways to stay mentally prepared through your daily life. If you carry a concealed handgun, receiving training in how to deploy the weapon from your day clothes, and learning the mental framework of carrying a firearm, is critical. At TPA you can learn how to mentally prepare to combat anti-social violence and prevail. Firearms training, whether handgun, bolt action rifle, M4 carbine, or combat shotgun, has strong mental and physical components. There is more to shooting than simply how you stand and how you grip the weapon. Winning is about mental preparation and training before conflict arrives.

Be prepared – Come to Texas Pistol and Rifle Academy and get the mental training you need to prevail in conflict today!
