  Other than tagging along with her brother and father on an occasional "boy's day out" and being allowed to take a trivial shot; Judy Kay Hanson has never handled a firearm. Two weeks prior to this video, now at the tender age of 68yrs, Judy experienced her first true exposure to hand guns.  Judy acted upon her desire to have the means to protect herself in her home and anywhere else she may be and participated in the NRA Pistol Series Training.

  Judy is now applying her new skills to the Advanced Practical  ***CTU***  Training. In the video Judy is practicing coordinating some of the Performance Skills that she is to be graded on:

  • Turn and Present the Firearm
  • Always Point the Firearm in a Safe Direction
  • Keeping her FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER until Ready To Shoot
  • Threat Assessment 
  • Trigger Control/Staging the Trigger
  • Maintaining Sight Alignment/Sight Picture 
  • Giving Commands
  • Forward Walking/Presenting/Firing
  • Scanning & Assessing
  • Sidestepping/Forward & Back-Stepping on Rough Terrain
  • Use of Cover/Concealment
  • Magazine Exchange
  • Re-holstering/Presenting 
  • Stress Management "CRISES": of a scenario of moving through a group of hostiles to get to safety. 
  • And of course Hitting the Target 

Armed with a Glock mod 23 Gen 4 /.40cal.

Judy is Dancing to a New Beat!

What do you do after you call the Police when the Bad Guy breaks in your home?

A. Wait for the Police to take your report when the Doctor says you are stable to talk -

B. Quickly spruce yourself up so you look good on your security camera when the Police Gang Unit reviews your security video for evidence -

C. Offer Cookies to the Bad Guy while you both wait for the Police to arrive -

D. Advise the Police when they arrive that you have

the right to remain silent,

Then contact Second Call Defense

and give thanks to God that you

invested in Firearms Training.

You and Your Family are Safe!
