Rob Pincus and Gander Mountain Academy Director Billy Hieb are at GMA’s V Range, where they take a look at how this virtual range offers safer, more convenient and economical training and practice. Using modified Glock and Beretta handguns, shooters are in a virtual as opposed to a live-fire environment. One advantage of this is that they can push themselves more. Another is that because the guns are not shooting live ammo, shooters can get lots of reps without the expense of ammo. In fact, they don’t need to bring anything: no guns, no ammo. Just show up ready to practice!
Rob Pincus and Deryck Poole work with a student on the range to refine his shooting position. Whenever you are training for defensive shooting, you should try to maintain a natural and neutral stance with your feet about equidistant from the target and your weight forward.
