What’s your dream gun if you could pick anything?? I honestly have wanted an @stiinternational for years and this year my dream came true. But as you gun enthusiast know it’s an addiction and no matter how many you have you always want more lol 😆 Yes I’ll admit I have a problem, but at least I’m not a shoe or purse collector lol (no that it’s bad girls 😋) // Wearing my favorite @1stphorm 1P shirt as usual #iam1stphorm ps @andyfrisella you need one of these! Get on my level 😎
Training vs Practicing: Running drills like this 1-5 drill is surely a lot of fun and can be impressive based on the speed and accuracy of the shooter. However, this is practicing. There is not much mental focus other than a little bit of counting, sight picture and trigger press. Training on the other hand requires much more mental focus and visualization. It requires context both in regards to why am I in a gun fight (or any other physical encounter), what led up to me pulling the trigger, am I legally, morally and ethically justified in doing so? Who else is around? What do I do after the shooting? Etc, etc. Don’t conflate the two. Going to the range simply to pull the trigger as many times as you can, without any context or visualization is simply wasted time and effort. One of our biggest goals, both personally and professionally is, how can we maximize every training evolution in a short amount of time that makes me safer today when I walk out my front door than last night when I walked in. How can we train our clients to be safer the moment they leave our classroom than 8hours before when they walked in? Numerous studies have shown that intense visualization, in context, is a great tool to engage mind and body for peak performance. Spend just ten minutes today in a few specific visualization drills. Then, tomorrow another ten. Short spurts of continual intensive training will benefit you far greater than long periods of simply going through the motions.
