Transitions: The Evolution of Law Enforcement Training

weapon transition

Can I get some love? 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 […]

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.

The Seventh Habit of Highly Effective Shooters

follow-through

Follow-through is a term that most of us have heard from the first time anyone taught us about marksmanship fundamentals. But it is also one of the most neglected. Maybe because it’s last on every list that shooters assume it’s the least important, but neglecting the follow-through can negate all the steps you previously took to deliver an accurate shot. Follow-through simply means that you continue to apply all fundamentals of marksmanship after the weapon fires. A proper follow-through allows the weapon to deliver the round precisely on target and recoil in a natural and consistent manner. To follow-through in shooting, you need to do the following:

The Third Habit of Highly Effective Shooters – Sight Alignment

sight alignment

Right after the invention of rifling, sight alignment is the most important contribution to man to fire an accurate shot. Sight alignment and sight picture are two terms that are often used interchangeably and many times used as one and the same. It’s fine to put them together once they are both understood, but it is vital to know that they are two different and vary distinct things. Sight alignment has nothing to do with the target (well, besides hitting it) and I will be covering this relationship in the upcoming, The Fourth Habit of Highly Effective Shooters.
