The United States Congressional Research Service, reports that there are approximately 310 million civilian firearms in 30% of the households in America. The majority are for self-defense. To protect life rather than to take one.
However, as firearm ownership continues to rise, the level of firearm handling skills is not rising to match. Regardless of how many firearms you have or which type you prefer to use at any given moment, one fact remains forever true.
It is skill and not the firearm you possess that ensures that when you need to use a firearm, you use it accurately and without unintended consequences.
Up for review is a book whose primary objective is to equip its readers with real-life tips and techniques that will improve their shooting accuracy.
Let me introduce you to its author so you may understand how invaluable the information in this book is.
This training guide was put together by Brian Morris. Brian is a seasoned weapon and sniper operations expert. He has accumulated over twenty-five years of military and combat experience under his belt. To top it off, he is a Green Beret.
In the course of his service, his commitment and quality of execution have seen him earn several commendations. Those commendations include The Bronze Star, The Army Commendation Medal, and the Joint Service Commendation Medal.
As a Green Beret, Brian has had a front row seat, not only to the Green Berets techniques but also to those of international elite forces such as the Israeli Defense Force and the Korean Special Forces. He realized that there was a gap in shooting instruction.
Training was based on hypothetical situations. Situations where external elements were controlled. Students who train under these conditions found their skills come up short when out in the real world.
One example he uses to show this is the instruction provided on how to focus on a target. The traditional approach to focus is to use the front sight post or to align the front and rear side aperture and focus on the sight. Brian points out that this works perfectly when you have a chance to control your environment.
This option is not available in real life. His approach is to focus 100% on the target and then on the smallest point possible of the target. This is also his first training tip. A tip you get for free just by reading about the course.
He has consolidated his observations and his own skills and training knowledge into a guide he calls Spec Ops Shooting: A Green Beret’s Guide To Combat Shooting Mastery & Active Shooter Defense.
Spec Ops Shooting: A Green Beret’s Guide To Combat Shooting Mastery & Active Shooter Defense
The Spec Ops Shooting guide is a comprehensive and extremely well laid out step by step tactical and shooting guide. The techniques included in the book have been built around the body’s natural reflex movements.
By making this the grounding element, Brian has been able to develop a program that accelerates learning regardless of the shooter’s current skill competency level, age, physical condition or preferred firearm of choice.
The strategies are also designed to mimic real-world situations. From varying external environments to possible physical reactions various events may trigger.
Unlike most training shooting programs, this guide encourages first-time gun users to start their practice with an arrow. This should not deter you.
This approach guarantees that you will have a solid foundation with regards to accuracy and timing. Furthermore, this will ensure you avoid common errors made by users who skipped this step.
The following three main techniques are the training foundation for this course.
- Instinct Combat Shooting (ICS) – Our bodies have a natural survival instinct. When a threat is perceived this instinct kicks in. That instinct will cause you to either to flee or fight. In either case, time is lost. This technique will train your body and mind to work as one unit thereby not losing any precious time.
- Setback Translation Technique – This technique will teach you how to turn setbacks such as blurry peripheral vision into advantages. Those advantages will help you improve your shooting accuracy.
- Tactical Follow-through – Once you’re engaged in a shoot out it is easy to get distracted. This technique will teach you how to stay focused and stay on target until the threat is eliminated.
The Spec Ops Shooting guide also includes instruction on the following:
- How to identify your dominant eye but also how to train to shoot with both eyes should the need arise.
- Numerous accuracy drills such as:
- The down & dirty target drill
- Flat range stationary single target shooting drills
- Flat range moving multiple targets shooting drills
- Multi silhouette target in-depth double tap.
- The appropriate shooting stances for each technique.
- The three different hand grips (Two hands, One hand, Offhand) and when best to use each one.
- Mind management and how to build situational awareness by developing all of your five senses.
- Understanding the mind of a terrorist with the goal of eliminating a terrorist event.
The above represents just a sample of what the training guide has to offer.
If you buy the book you will not only receive carefully curated instruction that will improve your shooting accuracy but also information of keeping your skills current.
