    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.

    Thanks for the video.

    Good video Paul. I like the part about freeing up your mind. It would seem to make the OODA loop a little less cluttered....

    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.
