vehicle Feb 15, 2022

This is another snippet from the upcoming Vehicle Comabtives Training Course on the FSW University.

In this brief excerpt from our Vehicle Combatives series on the FSW University we are discussing the importance of engaging from compression inside the vehicle. There are a number of reasons for this one of which is dealing with engagements at the window when on your shooting hand side. Here is one option we have to help navigate such situation.

*side note: as a lefty I demonstrate all of these techniques in the full version right handed as well since few of us are lefties. This is also why I got switched up on my hands bc the prior clip I was demonstrating right handed procedures.

Don't Lay on the Hood!

vehicle Feb 01, 2022

Many times we see shooters utilize the hood of a vehicle as cover but lean or lay over top it to stabilize their pistols shots. This technique creates a very dangerous situation for the person using the cover as near misses tend to become actual impacts from crowding the cover. By staying at least 3 or more feet (more space is better in most situations) back from the cover, you increase the chance shots that are deflected have enough space for the bullet to take the round off course and miss the shooter using the cover.

Stay tuned for the vehicle combatives being added to the FSW University in the next couple of weeks.

Benefits of Bringing Your Pistol to Your Line of Sight

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 Year to Say "No"

mindset Jan 04, 2022

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.
