    Good video...Good post...Totally agree...
    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.

    I also agree. I believe that some instructors teach a far too mechanical, "point for point" type of defensive shooting. I teach what I believe is a more fluid type of approach, which I think Mr. Gomez would agree with. For example. I had a student who had attended one of the larger schools that teaches a "seven point" draw sequence. Conceptually that's fine, except when I had the student on the range, he was literally counting off each step in trying to engage his weapon. At this point even a very slow BG would have won that engagement.

    Good video Paul. I like the part about freeing up your mind. It would seem to make the OODA loop a little less cluttered....
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
    And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,

    Good Post, Paul.............IMO trigger control is the foundation of the accurately placed shot....and what your demonstrating is imperative in learning to control the re-set before the press......nice.
