Mickey and former Federal Air Marshall Jim Dexter, now serving as a Chicagoland police officer, talk about the recent terrible police shooting at Manny's Blue Room Lounge in Robbins, Illinois. Around 4 AM bar security guard Jermel Robins was trying to subdue a suspect in a bar shooting. Police arrived on scene, saw Roberson with a gun and opened fire, taking his life. One killed and four wounded in the exchange of gun fire.

We don't know all the details of this incident, but there are some valueble conceal carry lessons here we should all ponder. Experienced cop Jim Dexter talks about what police are thinking about as they enter a crime scene... And more specfically what a lawful conceal carry citizen should and shouldn't do.

You can follow Jim Dexter on instagram at @TacticallySound or check out his website and training at TacticallySound.org.

Mickey goes deep into steel target safety in Carry Trainer Episode 56. How can I tell if a steel target is safe to shoot at? What are the common issues with steel targets? What types of ammunition can I use? What is the safe shooting distance for rifle and pistol? All these questions are answered and more!

Here are Mickey's Notes featured at the end of the video:

1. The strike-face must be smooth and free of deformations or defects.
2. The strike-face should have a downward angle to deflect the bullet and bullet fragments down to the ground.
3. No steel core or penetrator ammunition at any time should be shot into steel. The projectiles should all be lead, copper or some other frangible material meant to deform and break up at impact.
4. Know the distance of the steel.
5. Wear safety glasses with side protection rated for such activities.

Mickey goes deep into dry fire training. The best shooters will do thousands of dry fire presses for every live fire round. Our recent interview with Grand Master Eric Kamps is one good example (Podcast #26). So how do you do it? Can it harm your gun? What should you be thinking about? You'll get all these answers for better dry fire and more...

One of the the training scars when dry firing with a pistol is the constant need to rack the slide. That's where the Dry Fire Mag comes in; it allows the trigger to function normally with a audible click. This simple innovative product is a great aide for any dry fire training session.

Learn more about the Dry Fire Mag at DryFireMag.com, or follow them on instagram at @the_original_dryfiremag.

Carrytrainer.com exists to remind people that we are all our own cavalry, we must be prepared to ride in to effect our own rescue. Be it an attack, car wreck, life threatening illness or poverty; we need to develop the "stuff" to get it done.

Seldom in life when things go sideways is a cop, fireman or doctor sitting by to bail you out. While we need those people, 99 times out of 100 we don't have that luxury of being near one at the moment of distress. Self-protection is not having a weapon, a first aid kit or ninja hands, it is a mindset and a philosophy. We believe we can make our world a better place by instilling the notion of personal-responsibility and self reliance into our youth, students and most importantly ourselves. When we lift ourselves up, we are elevated to see above the junk and clutter and can in turn lift up a brother, a friend or a stranger in need.

Mickey Schuch is a pistol combative instructor and former president of McHenry County Right to Carry Association.
