Aiming for Success: New Year’s Resolutions for Firearms Training

Three, two, one – Happy New Year!!!

After the parties die down and we get back to work, what is the number one thing people think about on Jan 1?  The answer, of course, is New Year’s Resolutions. The optimistic desire to desire to do things differently than in the previous year. As the calendar turns a new page and we step into a brand-new year, many individuals are eager to embrace resolutions that will lead them toward personal growth and self-improvement.

For firearm enthusiasts and those committed to responsible gun ownership, setting New Year’s resolutions for firearms training can be a powerful way to enhance skills, promote safety, and foster a deeper understanding of firearms. C2 would like to help you explore some practical and meaningful resolutions to consider for a year filled with purposeful and effective firearms training.

Commit to Regular Range Time

One of the fundamental aspects of mastering any skill, including firearm proficiency, is consistent practice. Make a resolution to allocate dedicated time for regular visits to the shooting range. Whether it is once a week or once a month, a consistent training schedule will help maintain and improve your shooting skills over time. C2’s many memberships help to make that a more cost-effective endeavor. Additionally, the use of our SIM technology can help you master the basics without the additional cost of too much ammo.

Diversify Your Training Exercises

A mantra of C2’s Training Department is “Don’t just shoot; train.” Challenge yourself by incorporating a variety of training exercises into your routine. Beyond standard target shooting, explore drills that simulate real-world scenarios, emphasizing situational awareness, rapid target acquisition, and effective decision-making. This diversity will enhance your overall skill set and prepare you for a broader range of situations. Ask our qualified range staff, schedule a private lesson, take a class, and look on our YouTube channel for suggested drills and standards. Make every trigger pull on the range one that benefits you and moves your skills and abilities forward in the New Year.

Invest in Education and Training Courses

Many people shoot but have never actually been taught how to shoot. The C2 Method of training takes one from the very basics of gun safety through competency drills and ends with the practical skills you need for range excellence, competition shooting, and self-defense. Resolve to expand your knowledge by enrolling in firearms education and training courses. Seeking professional instruction can provide valuable insights, correct bad habits, and contribute to becoming a more responsible and capable gun owner. C2’s base-level classes 100-300, and practical skills courses 400-600 are a great place to start.

Evaluate and Upgrade Your Gear

You cannot buy skills. However, having the proper kit will enhance your capabilities and make for a more enjoyable shooting experience. Assess the condition of your firearms and related equipment. Ask C2’s experienced staff to assist you in determining your equipment needs. Consider investing in quality accessories or upgrades that enhance performance and safety. This might include improved sights, grips, or personalized accessories that optimize your shooting experience. If you are brand new to shooting, then ask about a new gun owners consultation offered here at C2. We will help walk you through your needs and find the right gear that fits.

Final Thoughts on New Year’s Resolutions

Setting New Year’s resolutions for firearms training is a proactive and positive way to approach the coming year. By committing to regular practice, diverse training, education, and responsible ownership, individuals can enhance their skills and contribute to a safer and more informed firearms community.
