In this demonstration, Claude Werner shows you a few dryfire drills that you can use to practice drawing your pistol from its holster and getting off quick, accurate shots. By matching yourself up against the clock, you can train yourself to be quick, precise and calm. These drills can be done with a hip or pocket holster and with any number of handguns, but for demonstration’s sake, our host uses a Glock and revolver replica. The key during these dryfire drills is to beat the timer and get off a precise shot. If you are getting your shot off after the buzzer sounds, slow down the timer and practice until you are able to beat it.
Student alert! If your defensive firearms instructor is not giving you an integrated system of firearm manipulation techniques but rather a set of unconnected techniques that don't integrate well together, don't reinforce each other, and don't contribute to your efficiency by being consistent with one another, you need to challenge those techniques.Watch Now >>
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.
