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.

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.…

3 Drills For Turning “fragile” Range Technique Into RESILIENT Self-Defense Technique

One of the widespread myths of self-defense shooting is that you need to have the right stance.

Defending Against The “Illusion of Competency”

This may strike a nerve, but it’s a really important thing to understand.
