Protector's Mindset

home protection mindset Jun 28, 2022

Perspective and mindset can make all the difference. Identifying and understanding our battles and challenges both physically and spiritually is very important.

We can't fight something we don't know is attacking us and when we do take on the challenge we need to do it with the right mentality.

Join us in the FSW University and watch the full talks from the great range of coaches during our last Protectors Summit!

Ranging a Target without a Laser Rangefinder in the Woods

long range shooting May 31, 2022

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

Point Shoot and Defend at the Same Time Concealed Carry Combatives Drill

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

How to Engage a Threat From Your Back Create Space and Stand Up

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.

Drawing From the Seated Position

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.

Be sure to check out the calendar for the next concealed carry combatives course.

Building through a layered approach

k9 Mar 22, 2022

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...

Art of the K9 Handler

k9 Mar 08, 2022

In preparation for the upcoming K9 Social Summit hosted by Full Spectrum Warrior and Xena's Pack, I wanted to highlight my talk from the 2018 K9 Cop Conference, "The Art of the K9 Handler."

 One of the huge takeaways that everyone misses when they see incredible dogs at work, be it in a home protection scenario, skydiving, or apprehending bad guys, is that the dogs success is directly impacted by the handler's ability and leadership. Just as a sniper is still a sniper even though he's shooting a different weapon, a good handler is still a handler no matter which dog is in his care.

Now if you want to improve your skills as a handler or even as dog owner, come join us March 16th-20th at Deepwoods USA to learn dog deployments, K9 First Aid, tracking, photography, decoying and more. In addition to a wide array of Instructors to learn from, come hang out and participate in the dog obstacle course or pull up a chair and enjoy the food trucks with a like-minded community of dog...
