Thoughts about Suarez International Interactive Gunfighting
Just returned from Suarez International's Interactive Gunfighting Course.
Sight picture? What sight picture? :eek:
Weaver? Chapman? Isocseles? Well, whatever stance you can maintain while at a dead run. :outtahere
Wouldn't this technique work better? Don't know; let's try it. :confused:
When defending in a Teuller drill, a clean fast draw is a must. :yikes:
There's a distinct advantage to a gun without a safety that must be disengaged. :shocked:
It's fun being a bad guy. :badguy:
In a public place, a self defense action can become total pandemonium in an instant. :w00t:
In a public place, in a self defense situation that has become total pandemonium, it's easy to mistake a good guy for one of the bad guys. :hand4:
These words are to the Interactive Gunfighting course as IPSC is to a real gunfight.
Airsoft masks don't make it; go for paintball masks.
$30 airsoft guns don't make it; get a decent gun.
Airsoft - convenient, year-round practice.
Pictures? Oh, yeah, I brought a camera, didn't I. OOps.
BOTH! It was a fantastic course. Would recommend for everyone. However,...
...it sucks to find out that everything you've been practicing on the square range will fall apart in the real world at real world attack ranges. It can get very intense, especially when things are too close to just run and gun (bad guy bursts into a room full of people and just starts methodically shooting them. Try the Teuller drill at a range of 3 yards instead of 7.)
The only caveat is that airsoft guns don't have much recoil, so you still need the square range time.
Gabe will be in MA in July
Well, Gabe will perhaps be closer to NJ than MD this Summer. He'll be teaching in Tyngsboro MA (only ~3 miles from NH) in July.
More info about this and Randy Cain and Jeff Gonzales, all three of whom will be teaching in Tyngsboro this Summer, can be found at:
Gabe Suarez's Enhanced Defensive Shooting course (4 days) currently only has 2 slots available for all 4 days and five slots available for the first 2 days only.
