    I just completed my required concealed carry class this weekend, and will be getting my permit to carry a concealed weapon in the state of kansas w/in the next month or two.

    During the class, they really gave us a lot of great information on the mindset to have (always be aware of your surroundings and have a plan if shit suddenly hits the fan) and the legal ramifications of what constitutes a "good shoot". What they didn't go into was a lot of tactical advice on more specific situations you might find yourself in (car jacking, robbery, etc).

    I know that every situation is different, but are there any good books and/or online resources where qualified people discuss how best to handle different situations?? Something that I can use to help formulate my own plan of attack should I need to draw my concealed gun to take out a bad guy??

    They mentioned www.usconcealedcarry.com as a good resource. It is kind of pricey though. Is this web site worth the money?? Are there better ones out there??

    You're going to need a real fighting class to learn that stuff.

    where i took my class they offer a more advanced class for concealed carriers & police, but it was around $150 for one day but it seemed to be beneficial so i'm assuming the place where you took yours doesn't offer an advanced class

    My local range offers a training simulation called range2000.Its like a big video game where they put you in different scenarios and you have a plastic laser gun you get to point at the screen and yell at the bad guy. After each scenario you discuss with the instructor what you did well, not so well, possible outcomes, etc. It's pretty cool and you can go with a bunch of friends to help reduce cost.

    I did that with the Local PD here. They had a cannon in the middle with a guy in the back aiming it. If you fucked up and the animation went it to "fire mode" then they dude pelted you with these hard plastic balls. I went with a rookie and he got pelted on the head. Everyone at the station had to do it, and when he came back with a goose egg on his noggin, they all knew he fucked up.:o good time were had.

    My dad did a lot of advertising work for them in the late 90's. I got to play on their big system at their corporate HQ. It was fuckin sweet, though they didn't shoot back at me with the urethane balls.
