“People who have been trained extensively to drop everything and draw a gun will absolutely drop their children… If you don’t train yourself to override that by holding on to your child, you absolutely will drop him or her. And that’s just something you’re going to do, and you’re not going to think about it till afterwards.” – Melody Lauer
Melody Lauer joins us on the show to talk about the topic of carrying with a child. We make sure to point out that the topic is not limited to just moms, but also dads, aunts, uncles, or anyone who may be carrying a firearm while attending to children. Melody touches on the importance of one handed shooting and practicing at the range with some sort of dummy child. As well she dives into some topics related specifically to women such as carry options, off body carry, and the sexism sometimes associated with women carrying firearms.
