My introduction to shooting a handgun was with my husband's .45 Auto 1911. I didn't know much about guns at the time, but even I could see that it was a beautiful firearm. Unfortunately, no matter how much muscle I used, I couldn't rack the slide.

I was talking with expert firearms instructor and friend Mike Hughes about handgun training recently. I've had trouble with my shots pulling left. As we were talking about my struggles, the discussion evolved into dry fire training, trigger control, grip, as recoil management. There are some gun gurus who preach the rule live fire training is the best and only way to train because you need to learn how to manage the recoil. There are others who like to work on each discipline of shooting in pieces.

I can tell you first hand as a former athlete and trainer, it is a great idea to break down the components, or principles, of the activity separately to find your weaknesses and improve those skills. Breaking down the movements into small activities and getting better at each movement will produce a better result more consistently.

As quickly as I walked onto the pistol range, Rob Pincus himself escorted me back to the prep table. He didn't smile or say much at all. He simply un-holstered my handgun and asked me to remove my holster as he handed me a new I.C.E. Range and Carry (RAC) Kydex Holster and instructed me to put it on. While I was familiar with molded holsters, I had never been a huge fan but was about to become one.
