We train purposefully: 5 basics of defense shooting

TRAIN IT OBJECTIVELY
Move from amateur to defense shooting.
author – Stephen lieberman

I’m sure to enter the shooting range. My rifle bag is covered with stripes and bright stripes. Today is a routine. This is the time when I am most focused. I destroy paper targets at different distances. After each shot, I’m looking away. And I calmly smile when I see that shred the “top ten”.

After the last shot, my pistol becomes a slide delay. I carefully discharge and begin to equip the store. I am a tactical shooter!

Perhaps this will be in the future, but not now. What I just described is amateur shooting, and most of us do. There is nothing wrong with amateur shooting. Just for fun. Tactical shooting or defense shooting – this is something completely different.

For those who carry us tool for self defense, more dynamic and realistic workouts are needed. When we train, we train with a specific goal. It’s not a problem. we train purposefully.

1. Removing the pistol from the holster

In the movie, you see a hero holding a gun with his leading hand. Do not repeat this.

If you want to see the distance of up to 15 meters, then you can end very badly. Keep the enemy at a distance. The line of fire.

While it is still in the holster. You must achieve maximum grip with the pistol grip. When removing the gun forefinger It doesn’t trigger.

Remove the gun straight up. Holster, turn it towards the target.

Well guys, let’s go back to the basics. Remember those Colonel Jeff Cooper?

  1. Treat all firearms as charged.
  2. Never aim your weapon wherever you are going to shoot.
  3. If it is not a fire, it is not a need for fire.
  4. Know your goal and its surrounding space.

Let’s focus on a little bit. Rule number 3: “Do not put your finger on the trigger …“. I’m already there, I’m not already ready to go. Rule number 3 says nothing about your eyes. Even if you’ve got them, you will get into it.

So, we continue. It is still close to the body.

The reality is that you’re over your weapon. If you’re first pulled out, you can’t take it. means of self-defense.

A confident two-handed grip. Now that you have both paws on a gun, you can, if circumstances permit, carry on a gun.

Here again there is a snag. I’m been taken to the aiming line. It is ineffective and looks silly. I want to see how I can. If I’m not really lose it, I’ll not lose it. I remember the number (? Remember rule number 3?).

Always keep the muzzle in the direction of the target.

2. Reloading weapons

There are two common ways to recharge. I can perform either tactical reloading, if I have time and opportunity, or combat recharge – call it “speed” or “emergency” – because I want to download it immediately.

He begins to equip the magazine.

We need to develop muscle memory. Every memory card bank. If you look away from your gun and shoot it.

I want to be on target. Me in my work space. I want to access it from the weapon.

It should be noted that it should be removed from the pouch. First I will make sure that I have a new source of ammunition. Then i will execute tactical reloading.

The same applies to combat or high speed recharge weapons. I will make sure that I’ve been able to make it. As soon as I entered the chamber, I sent the bolt,

Again, use slide delay It is a great idea to wear it. Regardless of the circumstances.

3. Scan the space around

In the dash of all the targets in front of you. In the real world, we can assume everywhere. It is a rule of thumb for a shelter.

Next time, shooting a dash, look at the shooters. “Put the gun on the rack and start charging the store” – the majority.

“I wouldn’t be able to see what they’re doing.” For additional threats.

4. Movement during shooting

Shooting in motion the dash is hard to work out, and I know that. Therefore, train to move on an open range.

It wouldn’t really be a lot of effort to get there. But in any case, it’s possible for the enemy. Shooting at a static target. Therefore, I want to be a moving target.

It is a nice bonus for his opponent. Therefore, get it out of the aiming zone.

5. Troubleshooting Shooting

Once I watched during the shooting. He had a malfunctioning weapon. Trying to understand what was happening. The problems were in one store. When he came out of the firing line, he threw the store in the trash. I got the store and caught up with the guy. Gold told.

Yes, the store led to delays when shooting. But it shouldn’t be a guy. It would be your case.

However, as an educational tool, this shoddy shop is fantastic! If there is a delay, you must aggressively eliminate it. A faulty shop gives you a chance to face a failure during fire contact.

We always tell our students:

“Yesterday you were lovers. Yesterday is over. From now on you are ARROWS. You have to train, and you have to train all the time. Experienced shooters.
You do not have to train to impress others. You have to train to survive a deadly fight. “
