Should you clear your home solo?
Structure clearing is all an angles game. Having a team helps your blind spots. If you are by yourself with a possible bad guy in your home, it may be better to set up an ambush position and let them come to you.
For more on home defense, members of the FSW should complete the Home Defense Series on the Training Platform.

Laser range finders are a great piece of equipment to have in your kit for precision rifle work, but if you have a milliradian based reticle it is good to know how to use if for when the laser doesn't do the trick.
Here are some good formulas to know for calculating your distance with your reticle:
1- Height of target in Yards (multiplied by) 1000 (divided by) Mils measured of target (equals your) Range to target in Yards
2- Height of target in Inches (multiplied by) 27.77 (divided by) Mils measured of target (equals your) Range to target in Yards
3- Height of target in Inches (multiplied by) 25.4 (divided by) Mils measured of target (equals your) Range to target in Meters
4- Height of target in Meters (multiplied by) 1000 (divided by) Mils measured of target (equals your) Range to target in Meters
5- Height of target in CM (multiplied by) 10 (divided by) Mils measured of target (equals your) Range to target in Meters

Continuing from our last weeks video on Concealed Carry Combatives we also have to take into consideration:
1-our point shooting from the hip (as many practice) might not hit the target when we are both moving
2-that one shot may not immediately stop the threat especially with a pistol caliber so anticipate that you will need multiple impacts and more time addressing the threat
3-the attacker will most likely not stop after one attempted strike and will chase and continue to attack
4-point shooting can be done with hands high you you can look done the slide of the pistol for better accuracy and a more defensive position

Many street fights go to the ground and we may find ourselves in a situation where we need to create space and manage our firearm to engage the attacker and keep our guard up while creating space to safely stand. Here is a quick excerpt from last weeks Concealed Carry Combatives training.
Check our course calendar for the next concealed carry combatives course.
How sick is it in movies when the bad guy storms in and the hero of the scene slides back from their seated position, flips the table in the process, and engages the threat?
Although great for movies, flipping tables may not be the best option. In the video above, I demonstrate how to place your feet so as you stand to engage the threat, your chair is pushed backwards, giving you the space you need.

Two weeks ago, I shared a info on a presentation I did regarding the Art of the Handler in preparation for the K9 Social Summit hosted here at Deepwoods last week.
For this week’s tip, I’d like to share with you that progression happens through a layered approach.
Dogs just like people learn new skills with time and exposure. When a foundational skill becomes proficient, you take that skill and complicate it. Need an example?
One of the most important skills in life is stability. A dog needs to essentially behave when things are calm
as well as when they are chaotic. For the handler, we’ve termed this skill as “critical thinking under stress”.
To start, we place dogs and handlers in a calm environment with no stress, little noise, and few distractions to test their basic obedience levels. From there, we placed them through a series of environments with and without gunfire as a distraction. This tested the dogs’ ability to stay obedient and the...
