How Important is CCW Insurance?? When I was a teenager. I became interested in the combative sport of boxing. I trained for a short time with a good friend of mine who went on to be a successful amateur boxer. He told me, if you want to be a successful boxer, you have to train, train and then train some more. There is no shortcut around training, if you expect to win a fight in the ring. Also, to win a fight in the ring you have to "throw punches in bunches". This means throw numerous punches in combinations. The accumulative effect of multiple punches will be more effective at knocking out your opponent. One of the simplest and quickest combinations is known as the 1-2-3. This is a straight left jab, followed by a straight right and then followed by a left hook. Boxing and gun fighting are...

Training=Life or Death Five hundred years ago, men watched the sun rise in the east and set in the west, so they believed the sun revolved around the earth. This became the conventional thinking of the time. However, when Galileo conducted research with his telescope, he discovered the earth actually revolved around the sun. This brought conventional thinking into question, and eventually it led to a more accurate view of our world. Conventional thinking exists in firearms training as well. And, just like in Galileo's time, whenever conventional thinking is not supported by research, the conventional thinking must be brought into question, so it too can lead to a more accurate view of firearms training concepts and techniques. One technique based on conventional thinking revolves around the belief that we must always carry an extra magazine, so we have additional ammunition, if needed, to address a "Type 3 malfunction".  A...

How to Choose a REAL Practical Defensive Firearms Course There are many so-called “Practical/Defensive” firearms courses, but which one will actually train you to win a gunfight in the real world?  We believe you must train the way it’s going to happen, so you can do it when it happens.  This means any truly practical defensive firearms course must train you to deal with circumstances that actually occur in a real world gunfight. In the previous topic (ARE YOU TRAINING FOR FAILURE?), we used research to identify seven factual circumstances in which real world gunfights occur.  Now, we can use these facts to identify which courses teach you how to shoot a firearm and which ones actually train you to survive a gunfight. Furthermore, any “Practical/Defensive” course shouldn’t promote how well the instructor(s) can apply the techniques or his firearms background, it must be focused on how quickly their attendees...

R.E.A.L. DEFENSIVE SHOOTING SYSTEM IMPORTANCE OF STANCE AND HANDGUN GRIP RESEARCH BASED EFFECTIVE ARMED TECHNIQUES FOR LIFE THREATENING SITUTATIONS For years statistics have shown that most police shootings occur at close distances under 21 feet.

Wasp Spray for Self-Defense; A Dangerous Myth This Self-Defense Myth, spread by word of mouth, email or YouTube videos, claims Wasp or Hornet Spray is more effective and cheaper than O.C Spray commonly called “Pepper Spray” these claims include being more effective against violence committed by a human. This is outright FALSE. It could get you killed. There are almost 2 million uniformed Police Officers in the United States that carry O.C. Spray. Not even one of these 2 million officers carry “Wasp Spray”. I wonder why? It is a violation of federal law to use a pesticide in a manner that differs from the product labeling (and it is labeled for wasps, hornets, yellow jackets) if there was a reaction like blindness you could have big problems. (see product label below). There are several O.C. Sprays that will shoot 15 to 18 feet and shoot at least 7-10 bursts....

How to Choose a Home Defense Firearm by Pros & Cons “The best home defense firearm is a twelve-gauge pump action shotgun”; how many times have you heard this from a firearms instructor, law enforcement personnel or read it in a personal defense magazine. If you think about it just a little, the statement itself is shortsighted, because the truth is, there is no one best home defense firearm for everyone or for every possible situation. The choosing of a home defense firearm is dependent upon a number individual considerations such as age, body size, physical limitations, and firearms experience, just to name a few. To give you an example of just how shortsighted and even dangerous this blanket statement can be. A one hundred thirty pound seventy plus year old female, who hadn’t shot a firearm in fifty years, was told by her local police department, she needed a...

Tactical Rifle Stance for Residential and Urban Use Wyatt Erpp is supposed to have said, “In a gunfight, you have to take your time fast.” This means you must aim, but you have to aim fast in order to survive. So, it is vitally important, we utilize a shooting stance that enhances our ability to get accurate, fast hits. This can be done, when we maximize speed by minimizing movement. Research also proves that in a gunfight, you must utilize simple techniques, so they can be accomplished under the stress of a real world life threatening attack. Once again we can use research to develop a simple stance technique which maximizes speed by minimizing movement. Research from the FBI, “Law Enforcement Officers Feloniously Killed in the Line of Duty with Firearms”, over the last twenty years clearly documents: Over 80% of police shootings occur under twenty feet Over 50% of...

Tactical .22 Caliber Rifle: a Home Defense Option? For decades the M16 and later the M4 style “Armalite Rifle” (AR) was the proven mainstay of our military forces and a vast number of law enforcement tactical units, even though the high velocity.223 caliber/5.56 mm bullet it fires is about the same size as a .22 caliber rifle. Then came the invention of the “Weaver” and “Picatinny” rail systems, and it enabled the user to quickly and easily install a plethora of practical defensive attachments to the rifles, so they became even more popular with the military, tactical units and to those interested on personal protection. However, about three years ago, several firearms manufacturers started marketing .22 caliber M4 style “Armalite Rifles”. This was mainly possible, because the .223 caliber/5.56 mm bullet is about the same size as a .22 caliber bullet. Originally, these rifles were marketed as a low cost...

Tactical Rifle Equipment for Home Protection Over the last two years thousands of law abiding American citizens purchased tactical rifles of all makes and models; however, the basic M4 style (US Military Type) was the most prevalent. This rifle can be an extremely viable home defense option, if it is equipped properly. However, when it comes to equipment for the M4, the invention of the rail accessories application systems made it easy to attach a plethora of tactical tools. Some of these tools are a valuable addition to your personal defensive M4. But, how do you know what to choose? First you have to identify your specific defensive firearms needs. If your focus is home protection, you only need tools that enable you to easily maneuver and get fast, accurate, multiple hits on an assailant(s) at close distances and under low light or no light conditions, because anything else just...
