Can Balance Training REALLY Help Me Shoot Better?

You may be wondering how improving your balance could POSSIBLY help you shoot better. It makes sense that better balance could help someone shoot better on the move, but how could it help you shoot faster, tighter groups when you’re standing still? In short, your brain only has so much bandwidth and the more bandwidth…

Defending Against The “Illusion of Competency”

This may strike a nerve, but it’s a really important thing to understand. One of the biggest enemies of real-world performance is the belief that people have that they are “good enough” when they only really have a fraction of the skill they think they do. This is an issue with every skill, but it’s…

Light Based Dry Fire That’s Better Than Live Fire

I’ve got a cool video of a light-based drill that will show you (again) how dry fire training can be so much more effective than live fire training when it’s done correctly. I just shot it quick yesterday with my iPad propped up on a shelf and did a quick edit today…nothing fancy…just some REALLY…

Christmas 2020–My Favorite Things

For a few years, Glenn Beck used to have a Christmas episode called “My Favorite Things” where he told his audience about what he was giving his friends and loved ones for Christmas. I’m fortunate to have half a dozen of my products recommended on his radio and TV shows…not as ads, but as gift…

Don’t make this expensive (and potentially deadly) Dry Fire Mistake… (picture!)

This could have been bad…VERY bad. A guy I met online this weekend named Eric posted a picture of the aftermath of a negligent discharge that he had and some of the damage that happened. (Yes…he gave me permission to use his picture, but I still blurred it for him.) So…how did this happen? What…

What’s The best place to conceal with the quickest draw time?

I got a great question from Douglas after he signed up for our Praxis counter-ambush and counter-assault training… “What’s the best place, with the shortest draw time to conceal my pistol?” It’s a great question, but it’s a little more complicated than it may seem. As an example, the best place I’ve found to carry…

5 Common Home Defense Myths (Don’t fall for them!)

Home defense is a serious concern for most Americans…even more so with the decrease in officers on the job, increase in prison releases, and overall violence in general that we’re seeing. But there are myths about home defense—dangerous myths—that just won’t die that we’re going to cover today. Myth #1:  “I load my home defense…

Is Your Gun Training “Perturbing” Enough?

“I’m very perturbed about that” was a relatively common saying when I was growing up. Today, when you say it, it elicits reminiscent smiles from those old enough to remember and confused scrunchy faces from most 20-somethings. But did you know that perturbation is vital for effective self-defense firearms training? Whether it’s recovering your balance,…

Perfect stance vs. odd angles…which is faster?

There’s a lot of talk on what the best “combat” shooting stance is. In my mind, that’s the wrong question. If the situation gives you time to get a perfect stance, then take advantage of it.  It’ll probably make you more accurate. But what if you don’t have time to get a perfect stance… and…
