GunMag Warehouse Launches Training Division

Carrying a gun is (or should be) a gestalt of conditions, not just a mastery of marksmanship. It’s as much about being a good human being, controlling emotions, and practicing compassion as it is honing weapon manipulation skills and practicing situational awareness. A responsible armed citizen doesn’t need to be a Tier One Ninja, but does need to be ready for the hard part.

And the hardest part of any defensive shoot occurs prior to and after the trigger press.

GunMag Warehouse is proud to announce the launch of GunMag Training.

GMT will be the instructional arm of GMW. It will be led by Daniel Shaw, formerly of Shaw Strategies and the USMC. Additional cadre members will be announced in the coming months.

“The more I learn, the more I understand that being less wrong every day is the best that I can hope for. I tell my students this and want them to understand that there are no absolutes, there is no one way or one magic technique that works for everyone in every situation.” Daniel Shaw, GMT

GMT’s mission will be to prepare those who carry a gun for such difficulties and to promote a well-trained, reasoned, and humanistic armed citizenry. It will also be practicing civic responsibility by setting aside slots in each course for law enforcement officers from the local (-ish) area.

Because of GMT’s atypical approach, students will gain more than a high level of technical proficiency.

GunMag Training courses will address such things as:

• Life safety as it relates to the armed citizen and the use of force

• Contextual safety beyond the traditional four rules

• Effective weapon handling

• Mental and emotional preparation prior to an Event

• Pragmatic expectation of what happens after an Event

• Awareness of positional and locational engagement

• Practical understanding of the spherical environment

• Practical understanding of the public environment

• Practicable marksmanship on demand not command

GunMag Training Daniel Shaw

A scene from one of Shaw’s most recent courses. Students included local first responders, several tactical officers, and many responsible armed citizens – including a handful of teenagers.

Shaw, a retired Marine infantry leader and combat veteran, will pull from his extensive military career and a lifetime of experience to combine tactical acumen with the moral ethos appropriate to carrying a firearm. He has instructed civilians, LEOs, and military personnel from all walks of life across the United States.

Family training with Daniel Shaw

Looking for a way to bond with the kids while helping prepare them for life, and simultaneously develop the next generation of Second Amendment proponents? Take them to a class and train together.

Courses will begin almost immediately with firearms training classes in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and others in Ohio (including Shaw’s seventh year teaching at the Ohio Tactical Officers Association Training Conference). Additional classes and locations will be announced soon.
