An active shooter is not always going to be directly in front of you, which means you’ll need to be able to present your weapon from the holster at any angle. To learn this technique, Rob Pincus demonstrates drawing his weapon from the holster and aiming without rotating his hips to fully face the target. 360-degree presentation is a skill that requires diligent training, so test yourself the next time you are at the range. Try presenting your weapon towards a target that is behind you, to your left, right and any angle in between, focusing on the mechanics of drawing, extending and firing with the same ease that you would if you were facing a target straight-on.
Rob Pincus and Deryck Poole work with a student to develop the ability to train realistically for multiple threats. Too often, students on the range just swing between targets instead of training to break their focus on the first threat and truly assess their environment to find and engage any other threats.
