Just like investigators, experts can be crucial in proving the fact that you acted in self defense. An expert is someone who is permitted to testify at a trial because of special knowledge or proficiency in a particular field that is relevant to the case.

This week, Tyler walks through his EDC choice and setup for magazines. In both the Glock 43 and 19, he carries the standard magazine with Vickers Tactical base plates, and a backup magazine with extended capacity. His choice of setup on the magazine is directly related to concealed carry and briefly mentions printing, which he will be talking about next week.

So far, in looking at real world comparisons of CCW Safe and other plans, we have talked about the Critical Response Team, attorneys fees, and bail. To this point, based on hiring an attorney for $100k and bonding out on a $500k bond, with any of the other insurances or services listed, you are sitting at an out of pocket expense of anywhere from $15k to $139k. Today we are going to talk about investigators.

This week, Tyler is back on the range talking about gear, specifically talking about ammo and his preferences on selecting ammunition. Tyler's ammunition of choice is the Federal Micro HST. This is a 150 grain jacketed hollow point, and was made specifically for smaller handguns with barrels under 4", like the Glock 43. He also carries this same ammunition in his Glock 19.

Looking at out of pocket expenses on hiring an attorney for $100k, we saw them ranging from $90k on the high end, to breaking even on the highest priced plans.

Generally, a self defense shooting that involves a death, will cost a minimum of $100k, and sometimes, that may only be to trial. In a competitors video, their own attorney stated that he wouldn’t take a case involving a homicide for less than $100k. Let’s take a minute and look at exactly what is covered, or better yet, what would not be covered in that $100k attorney fee.

The last resort. Not the first. That is the mindset we should have as concealed carriers when we make the decision to pull our weapon and display it to someone with whom we are in a dispute.

This week, Tyler talks about risk management for concealed carriers in terms of locations, times, and events.  You will often hear "I always carry because anything can happen at any time", and while it is true, and you should always be prepared on some level, it is also true that different scenarios have inherit different levels of risk, and that is a factor that cannot be ignored.

In this multi part ongoing article, I am going to go through the various components of service that we provide, and give an understanding of the Police Union Model. We call our service as police union model because that is where our experience comes from. Having been previously intimately involved with a lawsuit after an on duty police shooting, I have a great understanding of what you need following a shooting, both directly following and long term.

In this second video on Tyler's gear, he talks more in detail about the configurations on his two carry choices, the Glock 43 and the Glock 19. He goes into detail about day vs. night, and also talks about some of the modfications based on the fact that he shoots left handed.

In today's video, Tyler Grey, training advisor for CCW Safe, talks about gear. More specifically, he talks about his gear. "You are more important than your gear" however, Tyler gets lots of questions about his set up, what he carries, and he likes talking about guns.

In this video, Tyler talks about the purpose of these training videos. These videos are intended to give you things to think about in training, or maybe give you some thoughts about starting some training. Some videos may be more directly related to training, such as drawing from concealed, and some are more related to concepts of concealed carry. Tyler is a big fan of Bruce Lee, who took different things from many martial arts and made it his own, and his goal is to give you some ideas and techniques to take and make them your own. Stay tuned for some really good content coming soon!

Tyler Grey finishes the series The Draw, by putting it all together. From recognizing the threat, to moving the material that is concealing the firearm out of the way, establishing a good grip, presenting the firearm on target, to firing the weapon. This video puts it all together in one fluid action. This video is less about the actual realism of a threat, and more about the steps of drawing and presenting on target.

This week, Tyler talks about putting together the last few weeks into steps. Tyler shows the steps from standing and from his carry position, which is at the 9 o'clock position. The first couple of steps are the most important, which is moving the shirt or clothing out of the way in order to give you a clean, clear draw, without getting hung up on anything. So, the steps that Tyler uses are as follows:

Tyler Grey continues on his training series "The Draw" and talks about the use of video in training. Back 10 years ago, video wasn't as practical in reference to training. But, with the ability of anyone to record high quality video on your phone, it is very practical. If you set up video of yourself drawing at the range, you can go back and watch it later and refine movements, and identify what you are doing wrong, and what you are doing right.

In this week's video, Tyler talks about training drawing from a concealed holster and speed. Last week Tyler showed the first, most crucial part of drawing from concealed, which is getting the clothes out of the way to expose your firearm and make it able to be drawn without hangups. This week, he talks about actually drawing the firearm out of the holster, and addresses the concept of speed, in terms of drawing your gun quickly.

Tyler Grey continues on with his thoughts on drawing from a concealed holster. Again, the critical part of drawing from concealed is making sure that you get the shirt or clothing that is concealing your firearm, clear of your firearm.

In this video, Tyler Grey, training advisor for CCW Safe, talks about drawing from a concealed holster. This is going to be the first video in a series, and as basic as it might sound, this is one of the most important aspects of training for concealed carry. Even if you are advanced, it’s always good to keep refining your techniques. The first critical part of drawing from a concealed holster is clearing the material that is concealing it. If you don’t get that material out of the way before you draw, whether it is a shirt, jacket or other material, then your firearm is not going to come out of the holster as planned. If you get hung up, or are not able to get that gun out when you need it, we all know that can lead to serious problems.

Tyler Grey answers the question "What distance should I train at?" Most self defense engagements take place at very close distances. This is based on the fact that you are more of a threat to someone at closer distances than farther away. If someone is going to rob you, carjack you, or worse, they will most likely need to be close to you to do so. So, remember that generally, the distance is not going to be dictated by you, but by the assailant. Therefore, because the assailant will most likely be at a close distance, then you should train at close distances, say 5-10 yards.

Tyler Grey answers the question “How can I be best prepared for a potential self defense situation?” Everything is 20/20 in hindsight. There are 3 different aspects that Tyler talks about in this video: 1- Mental preparation, 2- physical preparation, and 3- preparation for the aftermath.

Tyler Grey, training advisor for CCW Safe, introduces himself to our members, and talks about the importance of experience in training, as well as in the legal aspects of concealed carry and self defense. At the end of the day, the only opinion that matters is one from experience.

You carry to protect yourself, as do we all. But we all have a secondary reason, which is to protect those around us whether it’s your family, friends, or the general public. Or in some cases you may even need to protect those that protect us: Police Officers. An Officer’s backup is almost always going to be slower to the scene than the individuals who are there when something happens. Officers have a ridiculously tough job to do and sometimes they aren’t even able to call for backup as the situation escalates so quickly that conditions can go from safe to the officer being in dire need of immediate assistance in less than a second.

Many companies either don’t understand what type of coverage is needed after a self-defense incident or distract you by bundling their coverage with a focus on the wrong things. The reality of a self-defense incident, especially one that involves a lethal use of force is there will always be a thorough criminal investigation. Making sure you have enough coverage and the right coverage is crucial. When a company bundles their coverage, you need to take time to see if they are actually covering the real costs and not just focusing on the things that rarely happen.
