Here is a short excerpt from a fundamentals course we ran out here on the ranch. Many times when new shooters get started we see them adjusting their heads to their sight vs bringing their sights up in front of their eyes. This can lead to poor body position, losing focus of the target during weapon manipulations and the potential of never acquiring the sights at all under stressful situations (looking over the pistol).
Here are a few tips and things your can do to help make sure that you can properly acquire you sights and watch the "field" through your weapon manipulations. For more information and a deeper dive into these specific fundamentals join us on the FSW University and check out these 3 training series:
-The Combat Mobility System
-Training The High Ready Position
-6 Fundamentals For Defensive Pistol
In this video, Rich gives three tips to keep you on track for your goal setting.
1. First, use this filter: "Does this decision get me closer or further from goals?"
2. Pretend the world is watching.
3. You have to believe that you are capable of achieving the goal you set.

Are you sick of hoping that one day it'll go back to "normal?"
I challenge you at the beginning of this new year, 2022, to be the change you want to see in the world. It's up to us.
And the change is very simple. Just say, "No."
No to mandatory jabs, no to upholding draconian mandates.
Just don't do it. The power in saying "No" is profound. They wield whatever power you give to them. Stop doing it.
As I mention in the video, one of the team members on FSW that helps out on the backend stuff is stuck in Saudi Arabia for not getting the jab. His company terminated him when he wouldn't bow down to the vaccine mandates and are withholding his exit visa until he pays them the roughly 75,000 USD they claim he owes. For more on the story and to help out his family please check out their GiveSendGo. Anything would help.
This is brief excerpt from a strategic thinking under stress course with Nick Davenport of Mindbody1.
Shooting well is just one part of operating a firearm proficiently. In addition, it is critical to develop the ability to think quickly and make appropriate decisions.
Be sure to tune into the podcast episode 34 with Nick to learn more about this skillset.

This is a snippet from an explanation from our low light training event this past weekend.
Placement of gear is important. Listen in as I explain placement considerations for a rifle mounted flashlight.
In this video, one of our FSW Community members, Trevor, covers different ways to store your ammo and what to look out for.
Does clearing your home solo always the best tactical decision?
Of course not.
Sometimes its better to set up in an ambush position.
For the actual one-man clearing, members can check out the rest of the Home Defense Series on the FSW University.

In this video, I discuss setting the proper length for a two-point sling on a patrol style AR.
1. How you mount the sling can help make the rifle more manageable. The rear attachment point should be on the outside of the rifle. The front attachment point should be just ahead of where you place your support hand, mounted on the inside of the rifle.
