Instructor Don Edwards discusses and demonstrates the differences between shooting with a bipod and shooting from an improvised rest. Both methods can dramatically increase deviation control, but the improvised rest techniques are much more versatile and universal.
Rob Pincus discusses the risks of firearm training with real props or in around real objects, such as vehicles. Remember that anything in the training environment can be damaged and any PERSON in the training environment could get hurt. Pushing yourself during training can have tragic consequences if you are not training responsibly.
Student alert!

Rob Pincus reviews the key components to a efficient reload from bolt-lock with an AR type defensive rifle. Keeping the rifle in the ready position means that it will be easier to get the gun back into a shooting position, if necessary, when your reload is complete.
