Got a video clip?

I recently watched this new DVD by Rob Pincus and was greatly impressed buy the quality and contents.
Since so many gun fights/encounters occur 0-5 feet this is a very important topic that a vast number of shooting schools quite frankly just gloss over--or totally ignore.
Rob does a good job of explaining the subject and I liked that in his version of retention shooting he rotates the pistol nearly 90 degrees so as to have the magazine base push into the upper ribcage.
This is the way it is done by the NYPD, Ohio Peace Officers Academy, the Swedish Police and a few agencies teach it.
Without going into a great debate on this, I find it safer and more accurate than how others are doing it.
Just IMHO, BTW.
I also like that Mr. Pincus incorporates unarmed combat along with the pistol, something that is vital in this type of situation.
I like Rob's approach to H2H, since it is simple and direct and is very close to what I was taught by many grizzled military and police veterans.
The only thing that I cannot agree with is Rob's advice never strike with the muzzle since I believe there is a time and a place--as well as a way--to do so.
Then again, just a minor disagreement on a theme, as opposed to the concept of the video.
All in all a very good production by a very skilled/articulate instructor.

I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Like custom guns and stuff? Check this out...
How do you buy the DVD?
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.
Thanks for the review, Matt.
I should mention that my approach to unarmed skills is heavily inspired/influenced by Tony Blauer and his SPEAR/PDR System.
We recently released a DVD in the series with Tony as a guest instructor sharing the fundamentals of the PDR system. With both DVDs, you end up with 90% of the outline components of the ECQ Tactics Course that we offer.
I appreciate your thoughts.
