      EMP is the smaller grip version of there 1911. Fixes most of the issues you have building the magazine for the shorter 9mm and .40 rounds and makes the grip smaller for those wanting that.

        FWIW, the EMP is one of the few 1911 style guns that doesn’t cause me to roll my eyes when a student shows up with one. Had one get through a class lat week without a hiccup.

      There was a scheduling mishap and the chat will be live at 6 central instead of 5. So sorry for any trouble this may have caused you, Bill.

    Why on earth did Springfield NOT put that sweet XDS trigger in the Mod2?? Very disappointed in the Mod2 trigger.

      Those mechanisms are very different. Kind of a personal preference thing. People liking the hard wall, short movement like the XDS best and the longer smoother pull, the MOD2…

    I had my IWB holster custom made to pull the gun super tight against my body. It slows my draw, but it conceals fantastically.

      That’s what it should be. A concealment holster that does not conceal well is no better than a speed holster that is not easy and fast to draw from…

    Guys…..Pincus needs to turn his audio up, or Leatham needs to turn his audio down..

      It’s because I’m basically a LOT more annoying and louder than Pincus. He goes for content and me volume. It’s another worlds colliding thing…

        TRUTH: We didn’t want people to think that my words were being given more bandwidth just because this is being hosted on my website….

    I really like the two latest free videos covering trigger pull and dynamic sight movement. Good job guys. I’m getting shake on my trigger squeeze, I have some forearm issues stemming from weight lifting and bad tendons on my elbow. Any exercise recommendations?

      There really isn’t anything else we do in our lives that mirrors the action of the finger pulling a trigger. I would recommend getting to the range as much as possible for live fire training and practice. Concentrate on a consistent press. Meaning, once you start pressing the trigger continue at the same pace without stopping. If it takes 2 seconds or a 1/4 of a second it doesn’t matter, what matters is that consistent pull. Over time this should help to smooth out the press. Finally, what type of handgun are you using? If you aren’t already, a modern striker fired will also help because of it’s consistent 4.5 – 5.5 pound trigger.

    Wondering when or why you don’t have any video’s or talk about to new gun owner. The best was for a beginner how to shoot a target better and more accurate. Like how to hold your gun the right way, why am I shooting to the right or left of the bull’s eye. The only thing you have tough is your stands. You only show video’s on how to defend your self. But for a beginner it means nothing if you do not know how to shoot straight. If you teach more video’s for beginners to shoot correctly more beginner would sign up with PDN. I have been a member for two years and I stopped because I believe you could teach us new gun owner how to shoot more accurate!!! I have even called in to PDN and there told me where to go for beginners but it has nothing to teach you how to be more accurate and more consistently. This is more that I’d love to see, because if you can shoot more accurate and consistent the I’d be ready for defending yourself or your family. Bottom line is if you can’t shoot accurate and consistent defending yourself means nothing. So if you would come out with more video’s of what I have just said I’d come back to PDN as a member!!!!!!!!!!! I hope this makes sense and my grammar is okay for you to understand. I Thank You and both Rob’s.

    What comes through here is the need to not get stuck in one mindset. I do IDPA (badly) and have completed Rob’s CFS course (also badly), but my mindset is that each informs the other. That means the basics are the basics, and getting practical experience shooting while moving, kneeling, around cover, doing reloads, shooting with either hand, etc. with IDPA supplements my static range shooting. Vice versa, when I go to the static range, I’ll work a bit more on balance of speed/precision shooting because it aids getting better at IDPA. Together, the intent is to make ourselves better shooters – period.
