    Good video. Just like other things there is no magic bullet/firearm/hand position that works every time you have to be able to adapt to the situation.

    If I have to resort to a long gun, I prefer to use "offensive" hand positions, the better part of a good defense. That aside, if my shooting instructor had tats, earrings, and a Mohawk, I'd ask for my money back. I prefer a more professional look.

    Good video. The situation really does dictate the reaction...

    It was definitely short but I didn't find it very informative. I think some viewers may find the one minute 47 second video to be extremely confusing.

    He pretty much said that personal preference and the situation will dictate hand position but offered very little info as to why. I found it extremely odd that the "rifle guy" spoke only about what his personal preference is and which hand positions he likes and dislikes and then Rob states how he "liked the fact" that the the guy mentioned that "different circumstances are going to dictate different hand positions" when the fact is that the "rifle guy" never discussed any "circumstances" when one should use any particular hand position over the other. The only thing Rob really addressed was having the hand back to get stability when in a kneeling position but instead of clearly stating that resting your elbow on your thigh is a great way to gain stability he said, "get that leg onto the hand or get that hand onto the leg". I'm pretty sure I know what he was trying to say but he didn't even come close to saying it correctly. If this is intended to be an instructional video, he might want to reshoot this segment and eliminate all the errors.

    lol. "Urban camo" was my first thought, too. Let's face it, he'll blend in much better in an urban setting than a guy in black and grey digital camo...

    At least Pinkus finally found someone willing to appear in video with him!
