    Unless you wear “tactical “ gear everywhere you go, practice without it on.
    In fact, unless you are an “operator “ in a combat zone, keep it in the closet at home all the time.
    Same goes for “tactical” slings on a rifle. A common, two point sling is an effective shooting aid and when picking the rifle up your support elbow should have the muscle memory to assume what is called the combat sling in a fraction of a second.

    I have always shot better when closing my left eye. Learning how to zero in on the target quickly without closing my left eye has been a bit of a challenge.

    I missed a class at my daughters Karate Dojo, on handgun retention and defense. I wont miss another one. Oh, its taught by a forty year Trainer that teaches at Gunsite or whatever its called, he is a retired sheriff, and is a AWESOME guy.

    All good advice. I'll add a drill that I use called the 5X5 drill.

    5 shots
    from 5 yards
    in a 5 inch target
    in 5 seconds
    repeat 5 times

    After you become proficient from a low ready position, try it with your EDC as you would normally carry. Haven't had a lot of success with that one yet. YMMV

    I am pretty much that way, but red dots have changed things for me. I shoot red dots with two eyes open. I took to bucks this year shooting my vepr 12 shotgun with a vortex red dot on it. First buck I shot on the trot and destroyed his heart and second one, I put 3 rounds in him on the run and croaked him.
