Carry for Life!© II

Strong - Off-Hand, take Cover!


In Carrying for Life! II, you will learn shooting techniques: rapid reloading, one-arm shooting (left arm and right arm), malfunction drills, half-turns, and full turns, and close quarter battle (CQB).


Then you will take cover!  Many police officers and individuals are injured or killed while standing mere feet from an object that, if used correctly, would have stopped incoming projectiles.  In addition, many are injured or killed because the cover was unnecessarily abandoned prior to the threat being neutralized or where individuals mistook concealment for cover.


  • Cover is an object which effectively stops or deflects a projectile.

  • Concealment is anything that hides a person from the observation.

  • Concealment is NOT always cover.

  • This course is about COVER!


Lecture Topics Include:  Review of Course I. Cover, what constitutes cover, when to use cover, depth of cover, how to use cover, how to develop situational awareness with an eye toward identifying cover, the difference between Cover & Concealment, an understanding of the capability of different weapons, different types of cover - objects that stop handgun rounds may not stop or a rifle round, crowding cover, when to move to cover / when to fight, good shooting techniques from cover, introduction to clearing techniques - “Slicing the Pie.”


Firing Range Drills Include: Proper techniques for moving forward, laterally, and backward to gain cover.  Target engagement from behind cover, best use of cover.  Take home drills.
