    Hey all. I’ve often thought of what it would be like to go to one of these academy’s or classes that offer combat shooting centered around the 1911 or even the Glock. I’ve read about some of them as you all have too and they all look interesting and fun to do. I don’t know how you’d choose...

    Was listening to The Dana Loesh show the other day and heard a promo add for a “FREE” 4 day course at Front Sight training facility near Las Vegas NV. I signed up right away to see what the deal (scam) was and was surprised to get signed up without a hitch. Says you can choose your dates with...
  3. Beginner's Corner
    Where I am locally, all the ranges are packed with a bunch of new gun owners taking their CCW classes, so training is left on the back burner locally. This quarantine stuff has been driving me stir crazy, so just wanted to see what everybody does for dry fire drills so I can add to the stuff I...

    So, I just spent some time in a closed training group with some friends of mine in BPD. We watched about 1.5 hours worth of Bodycam / Dashcam footage of officer-involved shootings. Say whatever you like about shot placement, modern ammo etc, all of that is completely valid, but a VERY clear...

    Recommendations, guidance, alternatives and suggestions regarding a cost-effective approach to defensive training armament are welcome. Over the next 12-18 months I'm going to take a few 2- to 4-day defensive pistol courses. My goal is to become proficient with traditional Gov't- and...
  11. Training
    I wanted to walk through my road to self-improvement in hopes that anyone not training to push themselves will do so. A little bit of my background- been with 1st Batt out of Savannah, GA, for about 9 years now- all line time- and that was where I learned to shoot pistol. I've had the...
  12. General Firearm Discussion
    I just wanted to post an experience I had with muscle memory last night that I thought was pretty cool. I was at the range with my department qualifying with the AR. During one drill, we were to "experience" a malfunction with the long gun and transition to our duty pistol, which is a Sig 220...

    I've enjoyed do all the drills after I joined this site. I wanted to keep it going. As every month $75 paypal or gift card to the fastest time. I wanted to do something to help me work on movement and reload. It's my twist on this drill https://pistol-training.com/drills/10-round-assault...

    Its July fellas, meats on the grill, summer is sweltering, freedom is ringing and the smell of gun powder should be in the air! In honor of our nation's birthday, let's throw a bit more lead down range and keep a warm slide on the hip. I'm not sure if this is an already created drill or not. I...

    I'm not a competition shooter and am not familiar with too many drills, so I searched a few sites for drills and came up empty, so I decided to make up a drill for this month. Another member once mentioned a rifle drill similar to the one we're going to shoot, but I think it is beneficial for...

    This month's competition will continue to test our resolve, since it incorporates the FAST drill from Sterling Archer's March Competition. WAIT, STOP!!! Please don't leave this thread yet, I know the FAST drill is a mother, but it's good for us! Plus I'm allowing head shots without the 3x5...

    My Sister-in-Law surprised me on a recent trip last week when she asked if I could teach her how to shoot a pistol. Her only experience is with a shotgun and is interested in self defense. She lives in OK and I'm in CO, so logistics will get interesting but thought I would throw this out for...
