Bipod vs. Improvised Rest
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.Watch Now >>
Part 6 | Balance of Speed & Precision
Rob Pincus and Deryck Poole work with a student on the range to improve his ability to adjust his balance of speed and 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. See other videos in our…Watch Now >>
Evolved Trigger Guard Devices as Holsters: Vanguard II
Trigger Guard Devices are seen by some who carry in the appendix position as a minimalist great carry option. The Vanguard II is the most evolved design of this type and offers some very specific features including: a belt loop that holds the gun in a constant position and a fin which protrudes from the…Watch Now >>
Low Ready Position with a Long Gun
Rob Pincus explains the advantages of a muzzle low ready position, especially in an extreme close quarters situation. The low ready position allows for more efficiency and consistency when moving into a shooting position and for dramatically more control if your rifle is ever grabbed by an attacker.Watch Now >>
Putting screws in a this plastic is inviting a disaster. Sheet metal screws in thin plastic will not tighten properly and will eventually come loose. Causing the whole setup to fall.
small machine screws with nuts and a washer are best for tight secure mounting that WON’T come loose or pull out.
if you are going to show how to install this mount then do it right . wrong type screws, you don’t force them in till they strip. you don’t mention to be careful of what might be damaged behind by the screws. I am a professional and i wouldn’t let you near my car. this makes me doubt whether you know much about other things you talk about
Congrats. Ur the first person that knew what ur talking about. There’s a reason cordless drill has a clutch. So u don’t strip out the hole. Having it set on the lowest setting. Then hand tighten with a screwdriver. Or if u r mechanically inclined, remove the panel. Use machine screws with washers and self locking nuts. Then u have a solid permanent mount.
Need some left handed options.
The reason it is loose is your dcrewdriver is going in revers…..
I love your videos and appreciate the detail you provide. On this video, take a look at the direction that the drill is turning, sorry to say, the wrong way, righty tighty, lefty loosly. When you pushed the screws in, it was like drilling holes. Everything else was really cool, Thank you.
I have a RAM mount on one of my 4 wheelers and it works well. Unfortunately, this system is too large and bulky to be functional. You don’t have a lot of room in most vehicles these days. I use the Grassburr Leather system that is more compact and works very well. I spent the extra bucks and got a custom leather holster. I have mounted so I can draw the pistol with almost no movement. It also comes with a pistol cover if your state as laws that don’t allow the gun to be visible. It attaches to the mount so you don’t have to take it on and off. Hate to seem like I’m pushing another product on this discussion, but Crossbreed needs to hear the limitation from a users prospective.
Wow you people are nit picking on how it was mounted and not how it could be placed to be properly used. I’m pretty sure that the instructor on his shirt means he is a shooting instructor and not a installation instructor
I just watched the video about the ram mount holster and it seems a bit bulky. Have you tried the mount system from Gum Creek ? I have it in my car and it works well. It hooks in the center of the lower panel under the steering wheel and uses any standard nylon or leather holster (if you are a right handed shooter you want to use a left handed holster and just the opposite if you are southpaw). I know that mounting systems for vehicles are slim and if you are in small car with limited space (like mine). Like anything it has it’s pros and cons.
Also I don’t work for or sell the system. I found it when I went to the NRA convention when it was here in Houston. Maybe you can check it out and see if there is any faults that I haven’t come across.
You stated the truth Rob- that holster as installed was indeed “temporary”. No way amigo that it was going to stay in unless you kept doing what you did…using your fingers to take the brunt of the pushing and pulling of the pistol in and out of the holster. Not what I would call an honest and ethical representation of the problems one will encounter installing the RAM mount. Wouldn’t Velcro be a better option ?
As the potential buyer you can after that assess whether the automobiles record is visiting subject
you to more expenses or problems.
Mr. Pincus, I love your videos and have learned a tremendous amount from them. This video, however, reviews products that, frankly, border on the ridiculous. A holster that mounts on or near the handlebar area of a motorcycle in plain view of everyone? Good luck on that one if you happen to pass a police officer on the highway. I also believe the chances are extremely high that the rider would, inevitably, dismount the bike to pay for gas or stop at a rest stop or to socialize and forget about the pistol on the bike. In the car, why not simply mount a left-handed holster on the left side of the center console between your right knee and the console? This way it’s on your side of the console inches from your right hand.
Sorry Joe, but you need to look a little closer ! If you go to 5:46 in the video when the drill is laying in Rob’s lap before he installs the first screw, you can clearly see that the selector switch is sticking out further on the right side ! Therefore the drill is running in reverse and the screws will never tighten ! I do agree….poor choice of screws and location !
most drills are drilling “forward” when in the position you described here. this is obviously thin plastic and it looks as if the screws were pushed through by too much force instead of allowed to make thread and screw in themselves.
Well, frame rate or not, the screw and the bit do LOOK like they are running backwards, but in the end, the convincing element is the directional selector for the cordless drill is protruding from the left side of the drill body. This is the universal ‘standard’ found when “clockwise” rotation is selected. For those not using tools much, this means the bit was turning in the correct direction.
More telling, there were 7 holes, not 6, and none of the holes appeared to have a bevel inward to accept a drywall-type screw. Without that counter sink in the holster plastic, the stability of contact rendered is greatly compromised. Better if he’d either counter-sunk those holes OR used a pan-head self-tapping screw and avoided DRILLING any holes at all…….
I would mark the holes, take the panel off, and use bolts with lock nuts to secure it properly.
The problem with the screws being loose was that it was minted in a KIA Optima. I have the same body style, and they’re not using the best materials in our cars.
Though, to be fair, those might not have been the best choice of screws either.
If I were going to mount one of these, I’d want to be able to mount it closer, without the arm. I don’t know about RAM, but I’ve seen the socket for the ball mount like that from others. It would be have some sort of Quick detach option, so you could easily stash the holster and gun when parked.
It also be nice to have some volume control in your videos, because they’re really hard to hear on laptop and tablet.
Nope, I’m with Budd. The drill IS in reverse just like you said. The screws never even try to tighten up, they’re just punching a hole in the plastic.
Neat system but he pushed the screw thru and stripped the threads. Should have gone slow with the drill and let it slowly feed into the plastic.
No need to rush.
Why waste money on a holster. I fold a wash cloth, place the hand gun in the fold and then press between the seat and console. The wash cloth takes up the space between the bucket seat and the console.
Rob you just screwed up a good console. I glad you don’t install tires or work on cars. Stick to gun training.
The problem you had with the screws being lose, was your drill driver was running backward and the screws were drilling a hole and not threading threw the plastic.
The drill isn’t going backwards. The frame rate of the camera makes it look that way, just like car tires look like they go in reverse on videos while driving forward. If you watch the drill chuck you can see that it’s going the right way.
