Training Tip Tuesday

Safety and Training Tip Tuesday 22-02: There are several different types of reloads to be familiar with and incorporate into your practice. Here are three of the most common:

 

Speed Reload: Partially loaded magazine out of the gun and onto the ground, then replace it with a full magazine. No need to rack the slide. No wasted movement is key. This type of reload is useful in competition.

 

Empty Gun/Emergency Reload: Gun is empty and slide is usually locked back. Empty magazine out, replace with a full magazine then move slide forward to chamber a round. This is a necessary reload anytime your gun goes empty.

 

Tactical Reload/Reload with Retention: Partially loaded magazine out of gun, retain that magazine and insert full magazine. This should be done when you have time, distance, and cover from any potential threats.

 

Train hard and be safe!

Training Tip Tuesday Over-reliance on Gear-Too many shooters look to gun additions and modifications to enhance their shooting. Fancy sights, lasers, grips, trigger modifications, etc. are all nice to have, but they do not make up for consistent, focused practice! When your target does not look quite as good as you want it to, as much as we would like to think it is the gun, it usually is the shooter behind the gun. Invest a little time each week into drawing your gun, working on your grip and stance, seeing sight pictures, and dry firing. This investment will be ten times greater than any additional gear you buy.

Training Tip Tuesday Mental Rehearsal- While physically training with your gun and in various self-defense arts is important, I would suggest that mental training is equally important. Putting yourself in various self-defense scenarios in the most common places you are at will undoubtedly prepare you to act more effectively in the case of an emergency. By rehearsing your escape route, or your move to a position of cover, or even your angle in which you would launch an effective counter-attack to a threat, you are giving yourself a plan of action so you will not have to come up with it during a moment of high stress when making those types of decisions will not be near as easy, or even possible at all!

Training Tip Tuesday Developing your Draw- Having a smooth, efficient, and repeatable draw is a major part of your firearms proficiency. Many people neglect this portion of their training, especially if they shoot primarily at indoor ranges where drawing from a holster is sometimes not allowed. The great thing is, the draw can be practiced in a dry setting away from the range. Always make sure to clear and check your weapon and separate any live ammunition from the area before practicing your draw in a dry setting. The mechanics of the draw can be broken down into the following steps: Grip your weapon and release it from the holster **note grip it high on the back strap establishing your shooting grip as soon as you touch it, Lock your wrist and rock toward your target ** note do not fish the gun overhead or bowl the gun in a scooping motion, Put both hands on the gun close to your body, Finally, perfect a smooth and level presentation of the gun toward your target.

Training Tip Tuesday -- Relaxed Versus Tensed Movements- I was a range officer at a shooting completion recently. The stage I was at included a mandatory reload. One thing I noticed with a lot of shooters that struggled during the reload, was that their movements were extremely tense, they were flexed, jerky, and not smooth in their movements. As a result, several seconds of valuable time was wasted. At a class this past weekend, I took the time to remind the students that SMOOTH IS FAST. Many of us who train hear those words all the time but still resort back to bad habits of tense, rushed movements, especially when time is a concern. Smooth, relaxed movements build solid, repeatable, usable skills. Train hard and be safe friends.

Training Tip Tuesday--- Maximizing your Training Sessions- After an incredible week of training with some of the best in the world at what they do, I thought I would offer a general training tip based on some observations I have made. When you train, be present in the moment. Do not worry about mistakes. Do not question whether or not you are doing every little thing right. Do not set yourself up for failure before you even begin. Instead, look at training as research and experience. I am reminded of the quote, “To be good at something, you have to be willing to be bad at it.” The point I’m making is that too many people do not enjoy training get the most they can out of the experience. Learning and skill building is a lifetime journey, enjoy the trip!

Training Tip Tuesday (On Wednesday)

Posted on 19 May, 2021 at 13:40 Comments comments (846)

Training Tip Tuesday (On Wednesday)- A training concept I use a lot is running what I do through an “efficiency filter.” I do not think there is one perfect way to perform a specific handgun function whether it is a reload, a malfunction clear, etc. because external and internal circumstances are fluid in both competition and self-defense situations. I do think that most, if not all of us, can be more efficient in our movements. One of the best ways to discover this is through watching camera footage of your competition stages or range drills. As you conduct these self-assessments, determine where you can be more efficient in your movements, timing, and actions. Doing this will increase your competition times, and overall handgun competency exponentially. In a future training tip, I will discuss segmenting, which is one of the most common mistakes shooters make in terms of efficiency.

Training Tip Tuesday ---Legal Training-One of the most common deficiencies in the vast majority of citizens’ overall self-defense strategy is their basic understanding of the law in regard to self-defense. Throughout the years, I have heard people say, with absolute conviction mind you, statements that have ZERO legal basis. It is not uncommon for people to say, “My brother who is a cop said…or I was reading on a gun debate message board, or I heard that...” Not knowing the law is not a defense, and misunderstanding the law (even with good intentions) is not a defense. Because legal issues are of monumental importance, can be complex, and can change over time, it is critical that you add legal training to your overall program.
