Transitions: The Evolution of Law Enforcement Training

weapon transition

Having trained law enforcement units for nearly 20 years, my training philosophy is more than just “training.” It’s also about maintaining and advancing your perishable skills. Perishable skills are those skills that depreciate in effectiveness over time if they are not practiced. Basically anything you do that requires hands-on activity is a perishable skill. This […]

Front Sight Focus, Neural Pathways, Your Biggest Why, and More… [Podcast]

Functional Fitness and Shooting

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL FITNESS?After over 20 years in the military, I’ve made functional fitness the cornerstone of all my training. But I see many in the military and law enforcement out of shape and even obese. It’s a proven fact that you’re more likely to use excessive force if you’re out of shape for the […]

The Secret to Shooting Like a Navy SEAL

Secret to shooting like a navy seal

Ever wish you could shoot a gun like a Navy SEAL? I can tell you the “Secret” of how we do it…but then I’d have to kill you. For those of you who have read my book, you already know the secret, for the rest of you here it is…there is no “secret”, it all boils down to dry fire practice; and lots of it. Dry fire is the generic term for practicing weapons manipulation with an unloaded gun. Like many seem to believe, it does not just mean pulling the trigger. I can teach a monkey to pull a trigger (though he might slap the hell out of it). Dry fire training involves everything you do with that weapon, from the basic fundamentals to shooting on the move.

Learn How to Draw a Pistol in 4 Easy Steps

how to draw a pistol

Knowing how to draw a pistol from a holster is like any other skill when it comes to shooting — it’s perishable. Meaning if you don’t incorporate properly drawing your weapon into your training regimen, you’re giving the tactical shooting advantage to your adversary.Whether it’s drawing your firearm against an active shooter, someone with an […]

Proper Breathing Technique – To Breathe, or Not to Breathe?

Proper BreathingSomething we’ve all been taught, if we were taught the correct way to shoot, was utilizing the seven fundamentals of shooting. For a refresher on those fundamentals or what we like to call “habits,” check out Chris’ all encompassing article titled “7 Habits of Highly Effective Shooters.” He later goes in depth on each […]

Pinpoint Shooting Accuracy or Lightning-Fast Speed?

shooting accuracy vs speed

Yes! As the name implies, here at Center Mass Group we teach our students to quickly find the biggest target available at that moment, set their sights on the center of it and fire for effect. But with that we also need to constantly remind our shooters, “You can’t miss fast enough.” That means for instance that if you decide you’re going to slap the trigger like it owes you money because it’s faster; you’re going to (quickly) throw your rounds all around the guy shooting at you, hoping that he doesn’t have the discipline to slowly press back on his trigger with you in his sights. Let’s see…if I slap the trigger fast 10 times, 1 round is bound to hit him!

Here’s an old FBI training video from the 60’s. It’s about 14 minutes long and talks about training techniques as well as using cover and the effects of ricochets. It’s interesting to see what techniques were used back then and what ones still apply today.
