There's no situation in which it's more important to be mentally prepared than when you're carrying a concealed firearm. After all, the mind is the most powerful weapon we have. But it's more than just a "mindset." And there's no one who understands this better than Mike Pannone. He's a former Recon Marine, Army Special Forces (Green Beret), and 1st SFOD-D (Delta Force) operator, as well as a USPSA Master Class Pistol Shooter. Now, he's the newest addition to the elite roster of NRA Carry Guard Leadership. On today's episode of NRA Carry Guard Daily, Grant sits down with Mike to discuss the importance of mental preparation for concealed carry.
