Tactical Firearms 
Instructor Training 
By Jacqueline Carrizosa



Recently, I was fortunate enough to attend a five day course, including competency instruction and testing, for Tactical Firearms Instructor Certification and Combative Pistol Instructor Certification with Progressive FORCE Concepts of Las Vegas, Nevada. Of these five days, only one was inside the classroom. The other four days were out on the range, mixing a functional and purposeful classroom environment with real applicable training and a plethora of real life “when it could happen” and “when it has happened” examples. This is no gentleman’s course. I also evaluated some firing demonstrations while wearing a heart rate monitor to show you how intensive training like this can produce high adrenaline affects on the body, which impact your performance at aiming, shot placement, and more.

Roughly 85% of all people shot by handguns survive their injuries. Therefore, accurate shot placement becomes even more crucial.”

PFC Loadout – New Addition!


Q-Series “Stealth” Holster


 Click image to purchase at

PFC is pleased to announce that we are adding a new product to PFC Loadout.  This product is a very well designed, compact, light-weight, and rugged IWB (Inside the Waistband) holster designed for appendix carry.  The holster is ambidextrous, as well, the wearer is able to switch carry to either side of the body at will.  Buyers will find the pricing competitive and very attractive.

The holster is named the “Q-Series STEALTH,” and is the creation of Gary Quesenberry (“Top Shot” Season 3 and All-Star contender).  Currently, the holster is available in two versions.  One version will fit all Glock pistols chambered in 9mm, .40, .357 SIG, 10mm, and .45 ACP (Full Size, Compact, and Sub-Compact); and the other will accommodate the new Glock 42 chambered for the .380 cartridge.

Concealment holsters should promote , minimally, weapon conceal ability, retention, accessibility, presentation, re-holstering and comfort (to some degree):

Concealable – the holster body is petite and of a “clamshell” design; fully encapsulating the trigger, trigger guard, and a portion of the dust cover.  Being an IWB holster, no portion of the holster body is exposed when the holster is being worn.  The holster comes with a strong metal belt clip securely affixed to it; the standard color of the clip being black.  Additional belts clips are available in different colors, as well, to assist with the unit “blending in.”   Available colors are black, flat dark earth, and desert tan. Mounting hardware is included.

Retention – The holster design offers Level 1 retention (friction).  Pistol to holster fit is tight, promoting excellent weapon retention during both normal and rigorous activity.  The belt clip is small, but robust; strong enough to keep the weapon/holster combination in place regardless of whether you are wearing a belt.  The belt clip works equally well when wearing either a 1.5″ or 1.75″ belt.

Accessibility – As mentioned above, the holster is designed to be worn between the 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock positions on the wearer’s body.  Exact position is to the wearer’s preference.  The stock of the pistol remains above the top of the waistband, so you don’t have to “fish” around inside your waistband to find your weapon.  It’s where you expect it to be when you reach for it.  The wearer’s shirt may be tucked inside the trousers, or worn untucked.  The holster’s size and design supports either.

Presentation – Amazingly smooth and fast.

Re-holstering – Simple.  The pistol can be re-holstered easily without taking eyes off your danger area.  With minimal repetitions, you can re-holster your weapon as easily as when you are wearing your usual strong side belt/paddle holster.
