However, we've had fans requesting our take on the topic, so this is for them.

🔥 Taking Control of the Situation! 🔥

In the world of concealed carry, staying prepared is everything. 🕵️‍♂️ Criminals often keep their intentions and weapons hidden until the very last moment, catching you off guard. 🚫

No matter how vigilant you are with situational awareness, you might still find yourself in a dangerous spot. That's where the Preemptive Switch-Jab comes in handy! 💪

A preemptive strike can be a game-changer, allowing you to seize control and disrupt your opponent's plans. 🥊 It buys you the precious time and distance you need to access your concealed carry handgun safely. 🙌

Stay tuned for our video tutorial on mastering this essential concealed carry technique! 🎥 Your safety is our priority.

Training Differently | SIRT - UTM - Live Fire Progression.
It's not always possible to have training partners readily available, and practicing against real resistance with live fire isn't an option. However, we can still make the most of our practice time by keeping our sessions dynamic.
In this compound drill, I incorporate a preemptive strike (Switch Jap), movement, transitions through all retention shooting positions, and a magazine change against multiple targets at different distances using inert (SIRT), Non-Lethal Training Munitions (UTM), and live fire.
Give it a go!

Revealing the Limits of the YouTube CCTV Violence Analyst

Are you looking for a way to improve your shooting skills without the expense, inconvenience, and limitations of live fire practice?
In this video, we'll show you a great moving target drill - the Pendulum Drill with Two No-Shoots - that you can do with the SIRT to build your motor skills and confidence.

Why use the SIRT? Because the unconscious mind doesn't know the difference between a simulated experience and a real one. So, by practicing with the SIRT, you'll be building the same "muscle memory" and confidence you would with live fire practice, but at a fraction of the cost and with more convenience.

In fact, 95% of our Pistol Craft Practice is with SIRT, 2.5% with UTM, and only 2.5% with live fire. So, if you want to improve your shooting skills without breaking the bank, give this moving target drill a go!

When concealed weapons are in the mix there are extraordinary variables to take into serious consideration.

Are Your Firearms Training Methods Outdated? Here's How You Can Tell...

180° Handgun Transition Mechanics & Weapon Flow
This is rarely taught on traditional static ranges for obvious reasons...

However, it's an important skill to possess considering the high probability of multiple attackers, bystanders and danger zones in defensive shootings.

The dynamic context and high variability environment of the Citizen Defender is different than a competition stage.

Therefore, the mechanics we employ look different than what one would typically see in competition, in the same way a hockey player skates differently than a figure skater.

These suggestions are for your consideration.
