Wow Silent Bob, I've never really thought of buddy checks as being negative but you've convinced me. Buddy checks incentive not taking ownership of the condition of your firearm and I must say, I've been guilty of doing that. Thanks for the insight and training.

I agree. I thought I had it all figured out until I had to go up against a thinking moving advisory in my first RBT exercise. After that I realized that I was not adequately prepared. After going through my first RBT exercise with Pulse O2DA I realized that not all RBT is created equal. The quality program and scenarios that you put together, coupled with the trained roll players, made it the most beneficial RBT I had been through. I'm glad this training is now available to the private citizen.

Great post Silent Bob, That's why I'm never impressed with the shooters that simply hit tight groups at the range. It's hard to get excited for a person who is content with shooting a tight group, on a stagnate target, that is not shooting back, in broad daylight, with (in combat) what equates to an endless amount of time, with no external stresses other than performance anxiety. Quality RBT matters! Can't wait for the next post.

Too often tactical team instructors show up to training unprepared. They are confident enough in their abilities that they figure they can make it up as they go. The training plan that they worked out in their head or scratched down on a note pad the night before quickly becomes disorganized. They move through the training trying to remember all the points they wanted to cover. Inevitably, they forget an important stage of the instruction and are forced to go back and address the point later in the day. This backtracking causes student confusion, frustration, and calls into question the instructor’s understanding of the discipline. Instructors then scramble to salvage the spent training time by rushing through the remaining points of instruction and ultimately end the training day on an awkward note. The students are too confused and tired to give any productive feedback during the training debrief and just... Continue reading

Every military, police, and private firearms instructor should read this post. I've been in the industry for 13 years and I have never found someone who can articulate a point with such clarity. Hope you don't mind me stealing some lines from your post for my own classes. Well done SB.

Wow Pink! I had no idea that Napolitano had such a history. No wonder they felt she was perfect for SDHS. I wonder if she has ever submitted to the TSA security screening the rest of use are required to go through? If so I feel sorry for the TSA Agent. Very informative, great read.

It is believed by some, that if you eliminate gun ownership in a community you make the community safer. The theory goes: If you take the guns out of the community then the criminal has no access to the tools needed to victimize the people living in the community. Sounds great, right? Well, if you think so, you’re not alone. Many city, state, and federal laws are making it harder and more expensive for law-abiding citizens to own firearms. These laws are only the first step in accomplishing this gun free Utopia that so many believe will make our communities safer. Can disarming the citizens of a community make the community safer? Well, let’s look at the evidence. In Washington D.C. the Firearms Control Act of 1975 was passed. The gun control law made private ownership of a handgun virtually illegal. Even having a handgun in your home would get... Continue reading

Its finally here, the big game; the event that football enthusiasts wait for all year round. All the fantasy football picks, the rushing home from church on Sunday, having the guys over on Monday nights, the constant following of stats, injuries, replacement players, and rankings has come down to this one moment… the coin toss of the Super Bowl! With a flip of a coin the officials decide who is going to get the ball and play offense first. But why does this moment matter so much? I mean if one team is better than the other, the coin toss shouldn’t matter right? Besides the other team will get the ball eventually so, who cares? Everyone cares! The fans, the players, and especially the coaches because whether the fans know it or not, having the freedom to make decisions and force your opponent to react to them matters; and only...

"The shell that separates a civilized, law-abiding society and a violent, chaotic, out-of-control one is very brittle. We live in a world where violence can spark quickly and without warning. Mass shootings, riots, and building fires are becoming all too familiar stories making headlines across the nation." Continue reading
