Best Dry Fire Training For Hotels, Timeshares, AirBnBs, & VRBOs

I get asked all the time about what and how I train when I’m traveling. Paper targets are a pain…and housekeeping can get a little freaked out.

Fast Cold Weather Draw Stroke??

A couple of things caused me to do this video… The number of people who have told me that they never do dry fire practice wearing the same winter clothes that they wear out of the house. The difficulties that I’ve seen people have when they try to draw from concealment with winter clothes on…and…

Revealing video on vision training….

You really need to check this out. Visual confusion when shooting with both eyes open is one of the more common issues that I run into with shooters. It’s complicated by the fact that most shooters have a misunderstanding about vision, eye dominance, and how the eyes work together for shooting…particularly shooting a pistol in…

Eliminating Tunnel Vision Under Stress

There’s a belief that in a high stress situation, you’ll have tunnel vision and won’t be able to see your front sight or only be able to see your threat. And if that’s how you train, you’re probably right. That’s what happens to most people under stress. But it’s a myth to think that you can’t do anything…
