There is a balance between teaching your students and mentoring them. At some point, you must stop answering questions and start asking them.  @gcodeholsters @safarilandgroup @sigsauerinc @bawidamannblades #police #swat #leo #instructor #teaching #range #edc #selfdefense
Been asked to do a quick clip on duty belts. As you know, many departments limit our ability to make improvements to our gear because it breaks uniform standards.  Understanding this limitation, my choice is to configure what I am required to use based on its frequency of use and ease of access. What is the reasoning behind your setup?  @safarilandgroup @gcodeholsters @sigsauerinc @dccarms @policeposts @gargoyleseyewear #police #swat #duty #gear #edc #leo #thinblueline #tactical #fighting

Been a while since I have ran this drill. Can’t do this at most ranges for obvious reasons but it’s a great footwork and movement drill and forces you to establish a shooting platform during an unconventional movement . In many ways it simulates engaging a threat you identified while scanning.  The best part of this video to me was resolving the unexpected FTF very quickly. @gcodeholsters @safarilandgroup @virtus.outdoors @islandviewenterprises @targetsolutionsusa @511tactical #range #selfdefense #police #drills #shooting #edc #2a

Dropping rounds? Consider that at no time during the firing cycle will your weapon drop bellow the point it started at unless you induced it. Once a round is discharged, the weapon impulse will be high, left or right or anywhere in between.  The root of all dropped rounds is user induced 🤭 To resolve this, 5 or more dry fires immediately after every dropped shot. @virtus.outdoors @gcodeholsters @safarilandgroup @islandviewenterprises @bawidamannblades @sigsauerinc #fundimentals #range #shooting #drills #dryfire #2a

Wasn’t going to post this and have been sitting on it for a while but the message is so important I decided to share it anyways. If you think about it, what’s the point of all this training if when the time comes we haven’t prepared for it. For my brothers and sisters out there, when you go on duty, please get your gear in order and ready to fight. Stay safe. NOTE: This is not a video about how to store your personal rifle. It’s about being prepared.  @gcodeholsters @safarilandgroup @islandviewenterprises @abawidamann @rosco_mfg @sigsaueroptics #police #swat #leo #selfdefense #concealedcarry #ccw #fighting #combat #duty #2a #training

This is one of my favorite active shooter conditioning drills and as much as I love conditioning, this one can be a nightmare. Start off already winded at minimum 100 yards, run to the 75, shoot two rounds static, run to the 50 or 60 yard mark, move latterly off the X, engage 2 times, run to the 40 or 50 yard mark, move latterly the opposite direction and shoot 2 rounds on the move. Then run to 20-25 yard line, move faster latterly the opposite direction and shoot 4 rounds at the target. The catch?  This is a 100% hit drill, you miss you repeat so you better get it right the first time. This is where performance meets reality. Hmm, sounds like real life 😂😂 @gcodeholsters @safarilandgroup @virtus.outdoors @islandviewenterprises @sigsaueroptics @xsteel_targets @abawidamann #drills #activeshooter #leo #swat #police #tactical #selfdefense #rifle #range #2a

First you have to acknowledge there’s a problem before you can fix it.  Improving the quality of training for the self defense community has been my passion for a long time but it’s often met with opposition. Man I wish I had more then 60 seconds to cover this 😔 @gcodeholsters @safarilandgroup @virtus.outdoors  @bawidamannblades @islandviewenterprises @sigsauerinc @policeposts #leo #police #swat #training #selfdefense #edc #range #performance #concealedcarry #ccw #lawenforcement #2a #combat #fighting #mindset

Yes, this is another boring reload video with a shot timer but I thought I would point some things out. First off, the Tactical community is loosing out if they don’t embrace the enormous contributions competition and performance shooters have made to the trade. Over the last twenty years, I have seen only a few LE courses that focused on performance and the reality is, they are few and far between.  This post is really about performance vs prudence. I by no means am at the level some performance shooters are but I like to bring some of the benefits from performance shooting to self defense. Although a 2 second or faster reload would be beneficial, I had to give up a few things to accomplish this that I might consider important in a firefight. This fist one is sight picture. While I may be picking it up subconsciously, I am likely just using my natural point of aim. The second is my reload.  In order for me to be fast I have to loosen my grip on the mag retrieval. Almost every time I fumbled my reload, the mag fell to the ground. My conventional reloads don’t have the same issue because I am using more strength. I cannot seem to find the balance between the two. If I have a tight grip on the mag my times are slower. If I have a looser grip on the mag It feels much smother but risk loosing it if I fumble. So again, I have to ask myself, what is the cost of failure.  I also want to point out that I am using my duty gear and retention holster. Weapon @sigsauerinc stock P320.

Sorry to all those that are freezing their butts off but this is one of the few advantages of living in California. 😂😂😂 #summerinwinter #winter #california #haters
Although the majority of my training is about putting solid hits on target, if you don’t push yourself to failure it’s really difficult to improve. I get a lot of question about transition drills so these are the two types I practice. It’s easy to modify or change the complexity of these drills  to support what you’re working on. @gcodeholsters @safarilandgroup @islandviewenterprises @sigsauerinc @sigsaueroptics @clouddefensive @abawidamann #drills #performance #combat #cqb #swat #police #range #tactics #shooting #2a #selfdefense @dccarms
