    Open carry misfortune

    I open carry often enough out here in Az. I work a gun shop couple days a week and open carry to and from the shop and in the shop all day. I'm faster in open carry mode by over 1/2 second should an attempt be made to take us down by bangers coming in the door; and open carry in the shop...

    Rare find

    Good morning Alan, I've seen 308/7.62x51 Garands from time to time, but not one from the 50's. Many were converted over the years, and I believe yours would be in this category as well. Unlikely to be the original caliber. What make is yours? H+R, SA, etc? BTW--Tell Al Jr. Brownie said hello...

    Firearm Retention Techniques On The Instinctive Edge!

    One of the systems I've been trained in seems to have the best balance and more effective retention skills I've seen of several I've been exposed to over the years. It's call Center Axis Relock, or commonly seen referred to as CAR. Retention skills can be called upon at any time, even when...

    Point Shooting

    What you missed brownie was the fact there are many ways of sighted fire and MT is only one. Yet you call all sighted fire MT What you've missed over an over again is the fact that they've been to the some of the best high level sighted fire schools in the country and have decided the skils I...

    Point Shooting

    And that's the only thing way they trained brownie? And all Blackwater teaches is Cooper's MT. Are you SURE? Weaver stance? Hmmm? Perhaps you missed this before, let me reiterate it once more for you. Whether that all inclusive of present day MT or not isn't my concern. What is my...

    Point Shooting

    I absolutely agree that threat focused shooting is the answer at close quarters, and it's the way we already train. Please define the distance of "close quarters" so we're all on the same page. Brownie

    Point Shooting

    The US Army SF 5th Group trained at Gunsite, Blackwater and several other MT schools [ many of these training centers are by THEIR OWN definition MT schools ]as a unit over the course of 6 months before deploying. Ayman came out here with "Front sight press" skills he was trained in at these...

    Course Review: Tactical Response Advanced Fighting Pistol

    Add to that, one then becomes used to specialized modifcations, and if you are then stuck with a non-modified oen (which can happen if your gun is taken as evidence or lost) then you might have a problem. Specialized modifications? Please, don't tell me I can't take any glock thats not been so...

    Point Shooting

    The thing is, sighed fire takes no longer to use than point shooting (unless you don't understand the idea of flash sight picture.) Well, again we see you arguing with the statements from some of the best trained MT shooters in the country Deaf, but thats exactly what I've come to expect from...

    Point Shooting

    While I respect anyone who trains hard to learn the art of the pistol......i'm far from convinced that Point Shooting is superior to the Modern Technique. Threat focused skills aren't superior or inferior to the modern technique [ sighted fire ]. Neither should be trained exclusively over the...

    Course Review: Tactical Response Advanced Fighting Pistol

    I put the dremel and polishing compound to that spot on the trigger guard, and it is good to go now on the g17 3rd gen. It's smoothed out and the edge is broken nicely in less than two minutes work. My first gens don't have that problem, and the design obviously changed in that area during the...

    Point Shooting

    Double post, My apologies to everyone. Fairbairn/Sykes/Applegate skills are well represented in my own courses. These skills have been proven on the streets as far back as the 1930's. Fairbairn and Sykes trained the Shaghai Police upon request due to their losing officers every week in that...
