What is EDC

EDC Stands For Everyday Carry

(EDC) Everyday Carry represents the mindset and lifestyle of a person who chooses to carry personal defense weapons and useful utility gear as part a normal daily routine.  EDC is not paranoia, it's preparedness.  It's the intentional act of carrying specific tactical and medical gear on an everyday basis that could be used to protect innocent lives, respond to unexpected emergencies and defend against violent criminals. 

The EDC lifestyle is a proactive, rather than reactive, approach to staying safe, defending yourself and protecting those you love.  Sign up for our next EDC Handgun course to work with our professional firearms coaches who will guide you through the most effective ways to carry your handgun on a daily basis, to rapidly draw and deploy your handgun in response to extreme violence, and to develop a training routine for you to continue training and practicing on your own.

GEAR REQUIREMENTS:

2 — MAGAZINES
You will need at least 3 magazines for this course.  If your magazines hold 7/8 rounds or less we suggest bringing 4 to 5 magazines.  Our live fire drills and competition drills will require you to burn through some rounds.  It is advised that you are able to start a drill with 30-45 rounds on your person.  

3 — HOLSTERS
You will need a OTW or IWB handgun holster for this course.  If you carry concealed make sure you bring your EDC holster to practice from.  Blackhawk Serpa holsters are not allowed.  If you use Magazine Carriers (i.e. NeoMag, SnagMag, IWB Kydex, etc) make sure you bring those so you can practice with them as well.

You will need approximately 300-400 rounds of ammunition.  One of our course Sponsors, Division Arms can provide you with ammunition to pick-up the day of the course.  Send us an email following your registration for a quote.  Also bring 1 box of any hollow point self-defense ammunition you typically carry in your firearm.

You need to wear pants or shorts that allow the use of a holster.  Dress as you would normally.  Don't dress different or more 'tactical' for this class.  Our focus is to teach you how to carry, conceal and deploy you firearm in real world scenarios.  This means you dress like you do on an everyday basis.  We closed-toed shoes.  Bring a hat and sunscreen.  Bring a notepad and pen for note taking.  Bring a hand towel or shemagh.  Bring plenty of water and a few easy to access snacks.

CLASSROOM + RANGE ETIQUETTE
CLASSROOM & RANGE ETIQUETTE

1 — CLASSROOM ETIQUETTE
No live ammo is allowed in the classroom.  Follow this procedure before entering the classroom: Point your firearm in a safe direction and keep your finger off the trigger. Take out the magazine. Clear the pistol of any live ammunition. Visually and physically check the barrel to ensure your weapon is unloaded. Lock the slide to the rear and store weapon appropriately.  LET ME REPEAT: Do not enter the classroom until your pistol has been cleared and all live ammunition has been stored in your vehicle. 


2 — RANGE ETIQUETTE
Keep all weapons empty, always pointed in a safe direction and fingers off triggers when approaching the range and loading station.  Tables will be set up as a designated loading station. Do not load live ammunition into any firearm until instructed to do so by the instructor. Do not point your firearm at yourself, other students or the instructors. This rule stands regardless of whether your firearm is loaded or not. Until you are on the firing line and have received instructions to fire, keep your finger outside the trigger guard and off the trigger at all times. Neglecting this rule can get you disqualified and ejected. If your behavior is deemed unsafe you will be asked to leave the range.
