    It would be extremely helpful to our members if you would post a short synopsis of this CD, along with a link to where it can be obtained.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling

    Oh...D.R. Middlebrooks?
    You are probably going to get opinions ranging from very positive to very negative on Middlebrooks.
    Some folks do not appreciate his ego and others can look past that.
    He shoots very well. Nobody can take that away from him.
    I believe that every self-defensive shooter should try out different things in order to find out what will work for them...and what will not work for them personally.
    Having an open mind is a good thing.
    He certainly is somewhat of a controversial person in world of defensive shooting. Like everything else firearm and defensive shooting related - personal opinions are all over the place and as different as night and day.

    I've had 6 days of training at Middlebrook's Tactical Shooting Academy. He is a good shot using his system. I'm not.

    When I was there, it was all point shooting out to 30 feet, no sighted fire whatsoever. The stance is a reverse Weaver; I was always getting caught in no-man's land somewhere between the normal and reverse Weaver. The way it was taught when I was there was that the straight, locked elbow of the support hand in the reverse Weaver was critical to the success of the stance.

    The training was of little benefit to me. However, by the time I took the training, I was well grounded in sighted fire, having trained a lot at Gunsite, Thunder Ranch, and Blackwater, and was already pretty good at sighted fire. Changing would have likely been counterproductive for me.

    Now I am thankful I didn't switch because as I have continued to train with correct sighted fire techniques I can see how all phases of my shooting have improved significantly.

    But of course, that is just me. Many will sing praises of the method.
    I'm too young to be this old!
    Getting old isn't good for you!
