Somebody during the push up challenge, challenged me to do push ups and shoot. So here is my first attempt at it. Physical stress with firearm training can really help you and in a number of areas. Strength, speed, trigger control, sight alignment, breathing control and some I’m sure that I’m missing. On this day […]
Working on from draw, fire from the high 2 position, the 3 or compressed ready and full extension. I should have been doing this on the DPL’s, guess I slipped into the game mode a little and extended everything. Video don’t lie and its a great way to self evaluate. Looking at this training session […]
Ha ha, this was fun and interesting. First it’s a bit disorienting being upside down and manipulating your firearm. Second I found that my Sig P226 wanted to slide lock even when there was a round in the magazine. Weird huh.
A rather interesting malfunction occurred at the range today, that I had never experienced before. It was a case head failure or case head malfunction, where the cartridge actually separates at the rim of the cartridge during discharge. I felt the powder hit my face when I fired and smoke started pouring out of every […]
Practical Hapkido weapons of choice are gun and knife. We live in modern America, so it stands to reason that we should have good skill sets of modern weaponry.
Here is a shooting drill I came up with that we worked on this morning. It involved a close target to the rear, move to cover, and then engage four targets with head shot. With the mentality that you either succeed or fail the drill. If you miss that head shot, you failed. The timer […]
Working on firing from what’s called the high 2 position for close targets and then engaging moving targets while closing the distance. Overall it was a good day. Stayed on target, for the most part and speed wasn’t too bad.
A brief description of a training barrel and its use. Not a whole lot to the thing, but it is a great training tool for safe manipulation especially with training partners.
This was one of the stages at Universal Shooting Academy’s Defensive Pistol League, Sat 8-27-16. They are always creating stages that challenge the concealed carrier and helps them identify weak areas.
Another stage at Universal Shooting Academy’s Defensive Pistol League. These swingers kill me, even though this was the first time I did not get a penalty shooting them.
One of the stages at Universal Shooting Academy’s Defensive Pistol League. 7-23-16. The stage made you shoot rather quickly. Don’t shoot the good guy in white.
On this stage start with 3 rounds in the mag, and mag on the table, gun on the table with slide open, and as many loose rounds that you want on the table. Engage 3 targets from seated position. Here’s the hook, in order to avoid penalties targets have to have either one in the […]
Engage 2 targets through opening then engage 3 targets through bottom opening
Firearms are a part of our culture and way of life here in America. More and more people are getting their conceal carry permits, but what they are not getting is additional training or even practicing. If you plan on carrying. You owe it to yourself and your community to be proficient with your firearm. […]
What the heck is Scenario Based Environmental Training? Well here is a small taste of what one might expect when attending. One thing for sure. Everyone comes away learning a thing or two. From the beginner to the experienced.
In weapon disarms there is always speculation on holding the weapon when fired and whether or not it really works or if you will be injured in the process. I said I would demonstrate with a 50 cal and as promised, here it is. Because of the slide design the slide did move, but not […]
Little drill I use to work on getting off line while drawing from concealed and engaging target along with a tactical mag change and another target and a final administrative mag change. Putting one round on each target is so I conserve ammo. I use a paper plate with a postit in the center as […]
This is one of the practice sessions I offer. Often times people get their concealed permit and wonder, well what other practice should I be doing? This is what you should be doing. Spending time with your firearm, getting to know it and how to safely use it. Moving and shooting is pretty much a […]
Must keep moving on this stage of the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof Fl during the USA Defensive Pistol League shoot.
One of the more difficult stages… or at least the fastest.
Out at Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof Fl. This was their first USA DPL match and this was one of the stages and what a stage it was. Universal Shooting Academy is top notch without a doubt. Firearms are an integral part of my Practical Hapkido
When it comes to guns and ones ability to safely and effectively use it. Nothing quite takes the place of some practice. When we do practice we should try and simulate a self defense situation which would include movement and cover. To increase anyone’s proficiency in firearm handling we have to step out of the […]
If you’re a concealed carrier, you should be training. This video will provide some tips in dealing with garments and some training concepts. Everybody will be a bit different. Body types, weapon choice, clothing, concealed location. Practice and dry firing can really be helpful in becoming a responsible concealed carrier. Dry fire practice with your […]
You would be surprised at what could go wrong in a bad situation. But that’s where training can be very helpful. Dry fire training and accessing of you concealed weapon will go a long way in learning what problems you can run into. As show in this video, even a hoodie string can be a […]
Working on moving while maintaining sight picture and sight alignment along with mag changes. In this drill we limit our round count to 4 per magazine so we experience slide lock.
