There are plenty of things to be afraid of, spiders, snakes, water, falling, flying, failing, commitment, success the list goes on and on. But none are as deeply paralyzing, as the fear of fear. In fact, this fear runs so deep and so pervasively in some that the idea of taking action towards remedy is frozen in place. This is especially seen in people who want to do “something” to protect themselves against a threat but have no idea what to do. This state is often enhanced by their minds churning day in and day out about all the bad things that could possibly befall them and their families. But there is hope.
“Fear is wisdom in the face of danger” has been attributed to Arthur Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes. Many envision the warriors and first responders who face down danger to be completely fearless in their duties, but this could not be farther from the truth. Fear is an asset that keeps you alive, and like a powerful racehorse can do great damage if not properly controlled. What is the best way to control fear? Training. When confronting a threat to your safety you can control the fear you will feel by having a body of training that you can rely on to eliminate the threat. The foundation of training is repetition, and this along with a sound firing stroke is exactly what you will find at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy. Whether you choose to use a handgun, shotgun, bolt rifle or M4 carbine you will succeed in these sound and proven training protocols.
