Long-time gun blogger Caleb Giddings is now affiliated with Cheaper Than Dirt. Caleb was on the History Channel’s Top Shot reality TV program this past year and just spent a few months in Washington State working for as a Field Director for the NRA. He will still have his blog at GunNuts Media in addition to the work he is doing for Cheaper Than Dirt.
In his first blog post for them he talks about the do’s and don’ts of your first handgun training class. He goes into more than just hardware and ammunition in what you need to do to prepare for your first training course. Mainly he says you need to go in with an open mind and to realize that the purpose of your first course isn’t to make you a High Speed, Low Drag Operator. Rather, it is “to make you more effective at using your concealed carry firearm if you ever find yourself in the middle of a defensive shooting.”
Congratulations to Caleb on the new gig. And can he get fellow gun bloggers free ammo?
