    Fist-Fire DVD

    Anyone ever watched these DVD's? If so what did you think are they worth it? I"ve seen some of their shooting on Youtube and it looks like some good shooting.

    D.R. Middlebrooks and and Paul Sharp (a certified FF instructor) are both members at TPI. I'm sure they would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Well, it has taken 12 years, but Iím glad my FIST-FIRE Grip is catching on:

    My Honest Assessment

    I received the Fist Fire DVD's yesterday and gave them a once-through. This is my impression:

    1. The first DVD is a waste of plastic in light of what DRM has posted for free here and on his web site. This DVD simply goes through real life demos that show that his methods are effective. Most of that content is already provided for free on the web. On top of that, a demo by a guy and gal who have been shooting for decades tells me nothing. Kind of like watching Tiger Woods give a golf demo. Not very meaningful to the newbie like me. Perhaps if most of the content weren't available for free I would have a different opinion.

    2. The second DVD did a great job of explaining the Fist Fire methods in detail. I thought great descriptions of the grip, arm positions, stance, draws etc. were given. Definitely detailed enough for one to effectively try out the methods.

    3. I'm not willing to comment on the effectiveness/utility of the techniques for two reasons: first, I haven't had a chance to give them a try since I just got the DVDs; and second, whether the techniques do or don't work for me means nothing in assessing whether they will or will not work for you. What I am willing to say is what I said in (2) above - the DVD's are very effective at explaining the techniques in detail.

    Conclusion: the DVD's deliver what was promised. As to value, that is an individual's call. To me it was worth the money.

    I learned a great deal from the FIST-FIRE DVD. I would love to find an opportunity to have Mr. Middlebrooks teach me what he knows in person. I am sure there would be much more to be learned from hands-on instruction, just as is true for any top tier trainer.

    That said, I have some issues with my wrist that prevent me from fully using what he teaches. It causes a great deal of pain due to a specific injury that I have. Unless you've had the exact same issue it wouldn't be a problem for you. I still work on the stuff regularly and it works well. But I've had to make some minor adjustments in order to be able to train for more than 2-3 magazines at a time.

    Cool Just the facts...

    The first DVD is a waste of plastic in light of what DRM has posted for free here and on his web site.
    Consider what you see on the Internet as Free Appetizers. The Steak Dinner is what you are paying for...

    A few side notes:


    1. DVD’s are Sold as a Set because they compliment one another. Run time: Approx. 3 hours.

    2. DVD-1 has footage NEVER before seen on the Internet OR on DVD 2.

    Yes, it has more shooting demonstrations. This is to show the student what can be accomplished using the techniques.

    But it also has more teachings on subjects like:


    * Shooting on the move

    * The Sentry Position

    * FIST-FIRE Flashlight Techniques

    * FIST-FIRE Carbine Overview and more.

    But it also has lot's more teachings on subjects like:

    * The Groucho Walk: Shooting While Advancing

    * The Moon Walk: Shooting While Retreating

    * The Sentry Position

    * FIST-FIRE Flashlight Techniques

    * FIST-FIRE Carbine Overview and more.
    I don't disagree with you. But my Tiger Woods analogy stands. That's a compliment, by the way.

    Great stuff! Looking forward to purchasing the DVD's.

    I have some relatives in Williamsburg, so I will seriously consider making vacation plans to Virginia in the future and attending the Level 1 course.
