The Myth Of Pointing Accuracy

There is a myth in shooting that people have been “pointing since they were babies” so they can point a gun and hit what they want to hit. The two statements “people have been pointing since babies” and “people can point shoot accurately” are both true, but they have no relation to each other. Pointing…

Is “Missing In Practice” the key to “Hitting In Combat?”

  What if missing more in practice could help you hit more in combat or self-defense? It can…but only if you do it right. First off, we’ve got to define what a “hit” and “miss” is… If your standard is “hitting the paper” then all of these holes would be “hits.” None would be misses.…

“Upgraded” box/combat/square breathing

I’ve got a quick breathing drill I want you to try. It’s a variation on “box,” “square,” or “combat” breathing. These methods normally have you breathe in for 4 seconds, hold your breath 4 seconds, breathe out for 4 seconds, and hold your breath with empty lungs for 4 seconds. We’re going to tweak it…

Making E-Type Targets Reactive For T4E Paintball Markers, UTM, Airsoft, Simunition, BB’s, Pellets and BlazePod

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about how I make the E-Type (Plastic mil/DOD torso targets) reactive targets that I use with less-than-lethal training tools like T4E paintball markers, UTM, Airsoft, Simunition, BB’s, Pellets AND how to use them with BlazePod flash reflex and reaction lights…so I made a video 🙂 There’s a…

How To Fix Flinch Fast

Flinch is one of the more frustrating problems that shooters face…both because of how it affects accuracy and because it can come back over-and-over through the years.

“Falling With Style” The Power Of Kickstands and Cross-Steps

When we’re planning for bad self-defense scenarios, most of what we practice is based on the attacker and situation… “It would be really bad if I faced multiple attackers.” “It would be really bad if there wasn’t enough light.” “It would be really bad if my shooting hand was injured.” “It would be really bad…

Visual Patience for faster hits—how to take your time and be quick about it…

Talk about a contradiction in terms! How can you be patient in a hurry? And what is visual patience? Visual patience is simply waiting until you can see to take action.
