Gun Quotes: Are Your Firearms Skills Good Enough? Never.

Firearms journalist extraordinaire Richard A. Mann tells us why, as good a shooter as you may be, you’re never good enough.

Practice makes perfect.

You can never practice enough. Know your skill level with a defensive handgun and always seek to improve.

“Obviously, as you progress through your training, you can tell if you are improving. The question many want to know is, “How will Iknow when I am good enough?”

Sorry. You can never be good enough. You should never stop training and you should never assume you’re talented enough with a defensive handgun to solve any problem. … Your skill level is something you need to know, if for no other reason than so you can improve upon it.”–Richard A. Mann, from his upcoming book with Gun Digest on handgun training, debuting Spring 2013
