This week Ben and I talk about the importance of practicing little things, in small steps, one at a time. Seems like there’s a divide among the shooting community where some trainers tend to have students practice large, complex drills, and other folks (generally the more competition minded) tend to break things down a bit more. We’ve both found that breaking things down for a bit, and then putting them back together tends to work well.
Gear That Doesn’t Suck
New segment this week! We get asked a lot about different pieces of gear, and what our thoughts are on different things, so we’re going to be promoting a piece of gear on every show that we’ve used and can recommend. This week we talk a bit about the Howard Leight Impact Sport Electric Earmuffs that we’ve both been using for a few years. They’re inexpensive, rather durable (I finally broke mine after about 4 years of use) and they work well.
Some guy shot himself in the restroom at a Chick-fil-a. Apparently his Glock “went off” while he was pulling up his pants. Don’t fiddle with your blaster in the restroom, leave it holstered.
A heroic High School teacher tackled a school shooter. Interesting that he was able to get into position to do it, and took the initiative to do it. Bravo.
H562 (The big omnibus firearm bill working it’s way through the NCGA) is still alive. There’s a good read about it here, which I reference in the episode.
