    I watched it and cried, my wife watched it with me and she cried - and I cried again. My 4 year old son was sitting next to me was touching my cheek wondering why I had tears in my eyes.

    THANK YOU 1ST SGT!! A little difficult to see the keyboard thru these tears.

    I'm afraid sir that you have effectively removed from me the possibility of using any excuse to not train and become all that I CAN be.

    Would appreciate reccommendation for personal and professional defensive pistol training in North Carolina from anyone reading this.

    Thanks,___3D

    3D, you have a Private Message waiting..
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    No excuses today, either. Did an inventory of my weapons. Rearranged my ammo boxes. Went to class and practiced "downward punching" for 90 minutes. Used a partner with a pad and a punching dummy. Worked strong hand, weak hand, both elbows. The move is what most people the "1-inch punch" and it's kind of like ammo selection.

    Instead of blasting straight through, the idea is to drive forward-and-down, delivering the energy of your strike down into the torso of your opponent. Done correctly, you buy yourself 1 to 2 seconds. You use that time to deliver hard striking attacks.

    Never stop training. There's always something new to learn.
