Back in 2013, a group of Tier I instructors from the Australian SAS had just finished teaching their new training curriculum up and down the East Coast to many of our top units.
They were considered among the top combat shooting instructors in the world. Their training was cutting-edge and they were in very high demand with special mission and other direct action units.
On the way back home, they decided to film a law enforcement training video in Vegas and I was graciously asked to fly down to shoot with them.
After one of the modules, I asked them if they’d be interested in a tweak that would get them more effective first hits on target without sacrificing any time or changing their technique.
They were already lightning fast, but I could see an opportunity that they didn’t even know existed to improve their performance.
They didn’t think I could help them, but were polite, humored me, and let me show them.
So, I told them the concept, demonstrated it with live fire, ran them through it with dry fire, and... within 20 minutes they were making faster first hits on-target and getting 2-3 TIMES more effective hits than they were before - in the same amount of time!
