First-Time Gun Buyer: Test Driving Defensive Firearms
Before buying a defensive firearm especially if you are a first-time gun buyer, give it a trial run at the range if possible. The dual purposes of this test drive are to ensure the gun’s functioning and to confirm that it’s suitable for you personally. This is especially important if you’re a first-time gun buyer. Rob Pincus demonstrates all the steps he takes during this process and shows what you want to see during testing and what should raise a red flag. 5 minutesDownload
Concealed Carry Methods: Weak Hand Presentation
There are many concealed carry methods but one advantage of appendix carry is that the firearm can be conveniently accessed with the weak hand. How does that presentation work? Rob shows various ways to present the gun with the weak hand, depending on the particular circumstances you may be in. Movements are shown in slow motion, repeated, then shown in real time. Rob also explains the safety reasons why he doesn’t like to train weak-hand presentation with a loaded firearm. This is just one of many concealed carry methods. 6 minutesDownload
Home Invasion Defense: Immediate Action Plan
Don’t be caught off-guard! Rob Pincus presents some key ideas for dealing with a home invasion. Have a plan, discuss it with your family members, and rehearse it a few different ways. Topics covered include initial movements, locating a phone and calling 911, assembling in a predetermined area of the home, and staging and accessing firearms.
Concealed Carry for Cold Weather
Dressing for cold weather brings its own specific challenges for concealed carry. When wearing gloves, a heavy coat and two or three layers under it, our usual method of IWB or OWB carry may not be the best choice. Rob Pincus advocates carrying a pistol in a concealed carry pocket holster and placing it in an outer pocket of the heavy jacket. He also favors removing the glove before accessing the firearm, and demonstrates the most efficient presentation with this setup.
Extreme Close Quarters Rifle Training
For many people, defensive use of a rifle will most likely occur inside the home. This makes an encounter at extreme close quarters (defined as within two arms’ reach) a possibility we should train for. How do we maintain control of the rifle at this distance and employ it to stop the threat if needed?
Volume of Fire: Handgun Shooting Accuracy
The volume of fire concept improves your handgun shooting accuracy while delivering a constant string of fire until the threat is stopped, or if you are on the range, until a reactive target goes down. The concept of delivering shots in patterns is flawed because we don’t know how many shots it will take to stop a threat, plus it gives more time for an adversary to shoot back, as well as ingraining an unrealistic, choreographed response. 3 minutesDownload
Lateral Movement Deceleration Drills
Moving quickly to get off the line of fire is important, but that alone will not stop a threat. Getting the gun into a shooting position and firing on the threat are what ends critical incidents. The faster and better you can decelerate and get into a stable shooting platform, the more easily you’ll be able to get combat-accurate hits on the threat. Close-ups and slow-motion illustrate key concepts of the deceleration drills. 6 minutesDownload
String of Fire and Engaging Multiple Targets
With multiple targets set up downrange at different distances and a setup for receiving commands (whether from a training partner, MP3 player, or phone app), Rob Pincus is ready to shoot some strings of fire. He concentrates on visualizing the threat(s) and firing a different number of rounds each time at the multiple targets to more closely simulate a defensive encounter.
Problem Solving on the Range with a Handgun- Shooting Drills: Balance of Speed and Precision
Rob Pincus and Deryck Poole work with a student on the range to improve his ability to adjust his Balance of Speed & Precision to the target size and distance while in the middle of any handgun shooting drills. Too often, students get conditioned to fire at one particular pace. 3 minutesDownload
New Gun Owner: Learning to Shoot in 20 Rounds or Less
Efficiently learning to shoot a defensive pistol is important to a new gun owner and those who do not have the resources to attend multiple day classes. Anytime you are preparing for personal defense, you want your training to take as little time, effort and energy as possible. The first place most people will think about defending themselves with a gun is in their home. In this video, Rob Pincus demonstrates how to take a new shooter through some very simple steps to develop base level skills in less than 20 rounds. 6 minutesDownload
