Defensive Shooting for Everyone

How important is a fast draw and a timer?

We see articles, like the one referenced below, pretty often and have conversations with people about the "fast draw" or "first round on target" mentality/methodology. DON'T misunderstand what we are saying here. We DO advocate for a good skill set and continual training (in context). We DO advocate for stress inoculation in training (again in context).


Marksman or Gunfighter?

I just spent an incredible nine hours training with some of the best firearms instructors in the state. You might think nine hours is a long time for training, but I had a blast. The time flew by as we were taught how to shoot better, faster, and ultimately to be both effective and efficient in the Intuitive Defensive Shooting Program. That training really got me thinking.

When it comes to complex tasks, you might remember how to do it, i.e., riding a bike, but you won't retain the ability to do it well without extensive practice.

The 2nd Amendment is Your Gun Permit - I Think Not

Well thought out article from The Truth About Guns on the 2nd amendment and what it really means.

“I have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms!”

“The 2nd amendment is my gun permit!”

“State gun laws violate the 2nd amendment!”

Most of the people who utter these words are well-intended. They are very passionate about their right to keep and bear arms, but I can’t help but wonder if they truly understand where rights come from or what the 2nd amendment means . . .
