Grown Up Lessons From Teaching Kids To Shoot

I was helping out with a dads and sons shooting event from our church awhile back and it highlighted a very important lesson in firearms training…which comes first, precision or accuracy? If you’re fuzzy on the difference, a precise 5 shot group would all go through the same hole, regardless of where that hole is…

Combat Accuracy Vs. Precision

One of the arguments against practicing to shoot one hole groups is that you won’t have time to do this under stress. That’s a fine argument, but it’s one dimensional, and conflicts with the very training that teaches it. Oftentimes, the same training that teaches that 8” groups in sterile training conditions are adequate teach…

You’re probably gripping too hard (Here’s how to tell)

There’s a line of thinking in shooting, combatives, and sports that if you do more of the same thing with greater frequency and intensity, you’ll get better results. But what if there’s a smarter way to train? Grip intensity on a pistol is a great example of this. On one hand, we know that the…

My Weekend With 450 Women Shooters…And Why They’re The Future Of Shooting

This last weekend, I was outside of Burnett TX at Reveille Peak Ranch for what might be the largest women’s shooting event in the world.  The A Girl And A Gun National Conference.  450+ women (100 more than last year) working with instructors  for 3-5 days. The facility is amazing…during the conference, shooters were doing…

“You won’t have time for “X” In A Gunfight!” (What’s the “X?”)

I got a comment on Facebook today saying that you shouldn’t practice a proper stance because you won’t have time to get one in a gunfight. I get different flavors of the same question all of the time… “It’s silly to practice with your sights because you won’t have time to use them in a…

How changing the color of my lenses slashed my reaction time by 20%

A few years ago, I noticed that I started getting angry at night before going to bed. It would happen when I laid on my back in bed to read, but not when I propped myself up and laid on my stomach. I finally figured out that it was the LED lights that we’d installed…

Try this “Blackout Wobble” drill

Here’s a fun and powerful drill that you’re going to want to try tonight. It’s based on our core philosophy that the easiest way to shoot better is to break the process down into bite-size steps, refine each of those steps, and then build the technique back up so it’s quicker and more accurate with…

Special Pricing on 4″ Dry Fire Cord

I’ve got a neat announcement for you today…we FINALLY have multi-caliber Dry Fire Cord sets available on their own! We’ve had all sorts of production challenges (we can’t find anyone to make them for us) so it only makes sense to sell them as part of a larger package. But we finally have limited quantities…

How fast should you dry fire so you don’t outrun the gun in live fire?

I just finished up testing a super-compressed 28 day dry fire program with a group of IDPA shooters. It’s part of a bigger, ground breaking project that I’ll be able to share the details on soon. It is an advanced training designed to help shooters improve qualifier and classifier performance as quickly as possible when…

3 Tips For Increasing Trigger Speed And Accuracy

“I feel the need…the need for speed!” -Maverick & Goose Shooting a gun fast is a LOT of fun. Shooting a gun fast and accurately, like in this video a few years ago where I shoot a 6” group with .14-.18 splits with a Glock 26 is ridiculously fun.     Unfortunately, most of the…
