Multiple threat, start with car in gear and seat belt fastened. deal with threat through passenger front and rear windows, put vehicle in park and deal with the seat belt, then deal with 5 additional threats after exiting vehicle. oh and, don’t shoot your passenger or the car.
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 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.
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.
Using a taser in simulated knife defensive training can be a real eye opener and a shocking experience. Training at this level is voluntary and I seem to have no shortage of volunteers.
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.
Running a rather old, stock Sig P-226, converted to double action only. Decided, rather spontaneously to head down to Universal Shooting Academy and do the steel challenge. This includes all 5 runs of this stage, including my misses. Still working on my speed vs. accuracy.
One of the more difficult stages… or at least the fastest.
There are still some non believers. Grabbing the slide when firing a gun will prevent the weapon from cycling and it will not damage your hand. Of course your hand cannot cover the muzzle in any way. Yes this would include even a 45 cal. This is good to know in any weapon mid disarm […]
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 […]
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 […]
This particular drill was for somebody that is right on top of you and may even be holding a gun to your lower back. As was seen on a recent video. In this drill you should focus on as you turn using your body to Shield or disguise the draw. This way the weapon comes […]
This is a great drill you should be able to do in most indoor ranges it will help you practicing failure to fire with tap rack solution, mag changes and reacquiring Target, sight picture, sight alignment Etc.
One of many ways to deal with somebody blowing up on you and threatening
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 […]
Engage 2 targets through opening then engage 3 targets through bottom opening
Many individuals train in gun disarms and weapon retention, but few focus on preventing the drawing of the weapon. In this video, Grandmaster Patrick demonstrates a technique for doing so. Always remember that such techniques are only to be used in the gravest of circumstances.
We look at everything as a possible weapon but our Primary Weapons are firearm and knife. Like anything, good training and focused practice is required to obtain and maintain a proficient skill set.
First time cleaning the Sig P320 after over 3,000 rounds 31 hours of live-fire training and nearly 20 hours of dry fire training. Really a great Testament to the Sig P320
The number three position is used for weapon retention in close-quarters situations. 3 to 6 feet or so. If you are a concealed carrier you really should shoot from this position to get an idea as to what it’s like. I would think most ranges would allow you to shoot from this position even though […]
A small sampling of the training that is done in Practical Hapkido at U.S. Taekwondo Hapkido Martial Arts Center with firearms. Lets keep it practical.
A glimpse into the weapon of choice for practical hapkido.
This was at the Shivworks ECQC by Craig Douglas, Florida 2010. This is was right at 12 months from my open heart surgery and was my challenge to myself. I was already gassed from a previous evo when I did this one. I worked pretty hard to get myself up to the physical challenge of […]
