Competitive shooter Julie Golob was asked: What’s the best advice you could give someone for how to practice for defensive shooting?

“Training for personal protection isn’t so different than training for competition in many ways. In my type of shooting, action shooting, when training for matches I set up a course of fire to prepare me for the event. For defensive training, you do the same thing; it's just a different event. Targets should be set up at realistic distances. The focus should be on both speed and accuracy with a goal of improving both. You should also try to challenge yourself and test your limits. You can do this by making a target more challenging—making it smaller or pushing it out to a greater distance. The more you train, the more confident you become, not only with hitting your target, but your gun handling skills, as well.”

Julie Golob is a U.S. Army veteran, competitive shooter and captain of Team Smith & Wesson.
