Backpeddling as a self-defense skill

One of the things that I’ve heard more times than I can count is to never back up when you’re shooting because you’ll catch your heel and trip & fall. Back in the dark ages when the majority of firearms training was done with nearly 100% live fire, that made sense.  You don’t want people…

Distract, get off-the-x, draw from IWB concealment, AND put 2 hits on target in less than a second

This is going to be fun… Making a hit on target in under a second is a great goal.  It’s relatively useless in a gunfight on it’s own, but the smoothness, efficiency, and confidence that you build in the quest for a sub-second draw is INCREDIBLY valuable. Making 2 hits on target in under a…
