Seems like I enjoy taking on the tough questions. This is a challenging subject so I’ll present some facts and some opinions from top instructors in the industry and let you be the judge.
It’s an ordinary episode about what I’ve learned after doing 300 episodes over the past 5+ years. First I thank each and every one of you for listening and staying with me this long. This show has some opinion, but again, it’s what I’ve learned, wrong or right. Hope you enjoy it.
What are your plans for 2013? This episode is about my plans for 2013. I plan to be a student, a host and an instructor all in the same year. Jon Hodoway also joined me to let us know he will also be a student, a host and an instructor also. Some of the topics include, IDPA, rifle training, rules of engagement and combative handgun training. We discuss our plans and also WHY we are making them. So you’ll get an understanding of the reasoning for our decisions. You will get some good information on how to prepare for 2013.
CR Williams is my guest on this episode. He’s recently written a book about gunfighting. We discussed some excellent topics such as the emotional orientation to a gunfight, actual techniques such as the draw stroke, use of the long gun in self defense, why having a John Wayne attitude isn’t all bad, what they’re not telling you about point shooting, fighting inside of your house, long range shooting with a handgun, dry fire practice and whether or not you can buy accuracy! In other words, is accuracy king?
It’s often said that most gunfights happen at night or in low light. Yet most people don’t train in low light situations regularly. If all you do is practice in daylight, how will you be confident enough to hit your target if, God forbid, your attacked at night? So, Roger Phillips is my guest on this episode to discuss this subject. He teaches a lot of low light and night fighting courses. This episode will probably make you re-think a few things about how you practice and what gear you choose for your handgun.
