This video provides the viewer with considerations that impact our draw, fire, engage, and assessment of the target. It also applies those considerations to tactical reloading of the handgun in real-world environments. This minor skill addition to your firearm engagement practice can have a major impact on the outcome. Win, and you and those you protect live. Lose, and the outcome has the potential to change drastically.
We knew our security personnel would be carrying this weapon concealed – our Executive Protection mission and time in corporate environments make concealment a requirement – so the factors which drove this decision were based on this need.
Target shooting and tactical shooting are very similar at first glance but differ significantly when considering the shooter’s mindset. Both take skill and training – lots of it. However, the training is markedly different because of decisions and considerations that must be made in the two separate environments.
