High Speed Low Drag Training

In preparing for my upcoming 2015 training schedule, I’ve been researching a lot of training academies on what they are offering. While evaluating and trying to select which instructors I want to invest my time and money with, I realized something particular. I don’t know if this is a recently growing trend or it has […]

There’s Always a Lesson

I have to admit that it’s been nice to squad up with a group of people who has the same training as you. Well, at least for me it is. The mentality on the squad is definitely a lot different from a competitive environment. I mean, lets face it, I like doing my reloads and […]

Tactical Pistol Two

Recently I heard, in passing, from Kyle Defoor a question that some people often asked him in regards to shooting. What makes a Tier One Operator different from a another shooter? Kyle simply replied with a saying, and I’m paraphrasing here: The difference comes down to weapon manipulation. Being able to efficiently and quickly manipulate […]
