Here's the latest vid, guys. Hope you enjoy it!
Really informative and useful, Paul. Thank you.

These short, to the point, instruction videos are great stuff Paul.
Another great one!
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Bark'n has made a great point about your vid's, Paul.
The short, succinct (sp?) lessons such as the one above can be viewed, the highlights jotted down on a pocket notepad, (or some sort of I - device) and taken to the range for practice. Each little lesson has one primary point to be practiced, making it easy not be overwhelmed with lotsa multiple stuff drills.
For example, I can start at your basic gun handling vid, practice the lesson given to a degree of competency, then move onto another lesson. Drawstroke, movement, firing under the circumstances as demo'd above. I really like your ability to convey these points in bite-sized vids, without overwhelming amounts of peripheral 'stuff'.
As always, thank you for the time and effort you put into these videos. I have learned quite a bit from your segments, and continue to.
Harryball and I were just talking about this. I have won many a bet by holding the slide forward with my thumb and firing a round.
But my God Paul you shot from retention and moved backwards while firing, what on earth makes you think that skill would ever be needed? Great video.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
Very interesting stuff thanks.

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 stuff, thanks. Don't overlook the guard position of the left hand. Its got nothing to do with
the gun but can keep you from getting your head knocked off. It also leaves the option of following
a single shot to the belly with a hammer fist, head grab, and knee, just to make sure you made your point.
As for the backing up while firing, makes sense to me. Distance is a friend. When I'm working on my MA
skills, one drill I like is striking while moving backward several steps; a blow per step. You can then either move
forward into your opponent or gain a sec to pull a weapon.
I'm puzzled about the question folks are asking about when that would be needed. What if you get one round off and the BG
is still on his feet trying to snatch the gun with his left hand? Moving back lets you avoid that grab attempt, and gives you an option to kick the turkey off too. You can't get a good push kick in or a good stomp kick in starting from that
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
Good video! Thanks for taking the time to post.

Good stuff! Thank you, Paul.
