0307 - The Problem with Firearm Safety Rules

/
In my opinion it is imperative that the student/teacher relationship is based on trust. We are dealing with life and death issues when we deal with combatives. The student must trust that the instructor is giving the best information possible. Many people mistake the instructors best effort with the instructor being required to be right I disagree The instructor has the responsibility to commit to having the best information available to provide to their students The instructor must constantly seek to understand where they are wrong and improve the information that provide to their students

0302 - Training and Practice Dangers We Ignore

/
In my opinion in the self-defense training industry we focus on the "glamorous" dangers to the exclusion of many of the more likely risks we face in our environment. Don't get me wrong, we need to talk about the reality that things can go wrong in self-defense training. Let's face it, any time we train with guns, the risk is there that someone could get shot. There is no way to bring the risk to 0. When we train with unarmed skills it is completely possible that some one could get their bell rung. Yes we should take precautions to try and prevent these situations, but in my opinion the trainers and trainees can't stop there.

0286 - If You are a Shooter, Check Your Carry-On Bags When You Travel

I end up traveling by air quite a bit both for pleasure and for business. This means that I end up taking guns onto airplane in my checked luggage quite often. Even when I don't take guns with me, I work to be pretty careful with my carry-on bags. There are all kinds of prohibited items that I use in the course of a day that could end up in my carry on if I'm not careful. Ammunition is one of those items. So, I check my bags.

My interview with Grant Cunningham proves my point well that SHOT Show is an opportunity to gather knowledge as much as it is an opportunity to drool over new gear. Grant does a wonderful job of concisely sizing up some of the issues that folks are confronted with when they start to look at revolvers and how they fit into modern combatives.

0132 - Keep Your Finger Off The Trigger

/
I spent a lot of time at the range this weekend! Between courses and competition I got a lot of rounds down range and had a great weekend! I do have to say that I am amazed at some of the things I see when I go shooting. This weekend I witnessed TWO ND's! Thank goodness no one was hurt in either situation. I wasn't involved in either situation at all, I was just one of the lucky ones that didn't get shot.
