Pistol Corner: Failure to Extract – When Tap, Roll & Rack does not work

Failure to extract – when tap, roll, rack does not work

 

When you train, train to clear malfunctions with the use of dummy rounds.

Although this type of stoppage is rare, it does happen and if you don’t train for it you will be that much slower clearing it when the chips are down and your * is on the line.

Prepare Accordingly.

 

 

The Dicken Drill

Self Defense Skills and Drills | The Dicken Drill

Definitely a drill worth adding to your training regimen.

I would add  a 20-yard dash to cover in the beginning to replicate stress (increased heart rate, sweaty palms, etc.)

 

 

Texas News: No Bill for Houston Man who Mistakenly Shot 9 Year Old During Robbery

No Bill for Man who Mistakenly Shot 9 Year Old During Robbery

 

This is the harsh reality when you carry a firearm for self-defense folks:

Every bullet you fire has a lawyer attached to it!

One of the key skill’s the Armed Civilian needs to develop early on is TARGET DISCRIMINATION.

Unless you can 100% ID your Target and Know what is around and behind the Target you SHOULD NEVER SHOOT!

The only way this becomes second nature is through repetition! Train, Train, Train!

My Sincere Thoughts and Prayers go out to the Alvarez family.

Always Remember, when you carry a Firearm for Self-Defense, the real FIGHT for your life can often start AFTER the shooting stops.

Just ask Kyle Rittenhouse.

Here is another video from Houston Texas of a IRRESPONSIBLE gun owner firing wildly at a fleeing vehicle in heavy traffic during a road rage incident.

Can you say STUPID!

Prepare Accordingly Folks!

Everybody being Armed has as much Risk as it does Reward, Train and Prepare!

Dose of Truth

H/T Freedom is Just Another Word

 

When is the last time you drilled on engaging targets out to 50 yards with your carry sidearm?

A 22-year old named Elisjsha Dicken practiced it regularly and it saved a countless number of innocent lives.

Don’t get stuck in a rut with your Carry drills and only practice those things you know you can do well.

Challenge yourself and Push the envelope of your skills and your weapons capabilities!

You might be surprised at what you can do.

 

Pistolcraft: Slide Release or Slingshot?

Would You Hit It — Slide Release or Slingshot?

 

Remember this:  Practice does not make Perfect, it makes PERMANENT!

It pays to frequently re-evaluate your firearm habits to make sure they are not detrimental to REALISTIC FIREARMS TRAINING.

For me, I was trained early on to NEVER use my slide release lever and ALWAYS use the SLINGSHOT method to CHARGE the Pistol.

In the Event of having to manipulate the weapon one-handed, the slingshot can be done using the heel of your shoe/ boot.

Bottom line, which ever way you choose, slide release or slingshot, TRAIN that way ALL THE TIME! Repetition builds muscle memory.
