Mickey talks with Navy veteran and family man Shane Hicks about a late night home defense incident involving a random chance encounter with a drugged assailant in the driveway. It started almost at hour past midnight when Hicks got up from bed to investigate noises outside his home in the front yard. The attacker, high on CCC, backed Shane against his house tried to take his gun before getting shot several times.

Neither Hicks or his pregnant wife were hurt. Hicks immediately contacted the police. He was taken in for questioning. His gun and clothing was taken as evidence. Hicks was finally released around 7AM and no charges were filed.

Retired US Army Green Beret Zee Durham talking about Rifle Hold-Over and how the 50-200 yard zero works.Before zeroing red dots on your AR 15, it's useful to understand these basic concepts. Once you have a 50 to 200 yard zero this video will also give you a feel for minor adjustments to your point of aim (hold over) at different distances like 10 yards or 100 yards.

Mickey mentions a 10 yard method Frank Proctor made famous... with regular NATO green tip ammo a 1.9 inch hold-off at exactly 10 yards is a quick way to get a 50 to 200 yard zero.

This is part 2 of our S12 Nashville Rifle Training Series.

When working with a rifle there are many important issues to consider before you start shooting. What's a good rifle grip? Using the rifle cheek-weld... How should you setup your sling? Mags... etc. Former US Army Green Beret Zee Durham covers these essential rifle skills at the beginning of Day 2 at the S12 Event.

This is part 1 of our Rifle Training videos from the 2018 S12 Nashville Event.

Mickey reacts to news hockey pucks are being passed out at Oakland University in Michigan for self-defense against active shooters. Yahoo news reports, "The school's initiative is twofold: circulating hockey pucks around campus in case of a dire situation, and raising funds retrofit the school's classroom doors so that they can be locked from the inside."

Mickey briefly talks about trigger finger placement on handguns. Is it the tip, pad or crease? Really it depends on the size of your hands and the size of your pistol. What really matters is being able to pull the trigger straight back without moving the sights. This is easier said than done.

As Mickey explains, the most common sign of a bad trigger pull is shooting low left for right handed shooters (reverse for left handed shooting). The immediate remedy for this is to compensate with a strong grip.

This is a short clip from the 2018 S12 Nashville event. You can sign up for next years S12 Nashville event at CarryTrainer.com

Carrytrainer.com exists to remind people that we are all our own cavalry, we must be prepared to ride in to effect our own rescue. Be it an attack, car wreck, life threatening illness or poverty; we need to develop the "stuff" to get it done.

Seldom in life when things go sideways is a cop, fireman or doctor sitting by to bail you out. While we need those people, 99 times out of 100 we don't have that luxury of being near one at the moment of distress. Self-protection is not having a weapon, a first aid kit or ninja hands, it is a mindset and a philosophy. We believe we can make our world a better place by instilling the notion of personal-responsibility and self reliance into our youth, students and most importantly ourselves. When we lift ourselves up, we are elevated to see above the junk and clutter and can in turn lift up a brother, a friend or a stranger in need.

Mickey Schuch is a pistol combative instructor and former president of McHenry County Right to Carry Association.
