WOD begins as do all WODs, with a safety check. Make sure you unload your pistol, physically check your chamber, press check in good light, look away, press check again. Put ALL of your ammo and magazines in another room, and properly situate your body armor so you can dry fire at it, over a chair, on a hanger, etc. One more press check, please. The focus of this WOD is going to be your front sight. You will draw and aim at your threat, picking up your front sight about half way there,…Continue

Hello everyone, I hope your Holiday season is off to a happy start. For the next WOD, I wanted to post a couple short videos to quickly explain it and make it easier for those of you who have never practiced this skill, but my cell phone camera and my MacBook are refusing to speak the same language they both spoke a month ago. I also figured most of you would not miss a WOD this week with everything else going on family/Holiday/work wise.
This WOD focuses on drawing and…Continue

Please do not just rack the slide several times and hope your extractor is working properly.

11/18/11 WOD starts just like 11/10/11, unload pistol and put all ammo and magazines in another room. Lock your slide back, stick your finger in the chamber, press check, press check again. Begin from standing, draw pistol and at the same time drop into a prone position that is narrow, no knees or elbows sticking out for the bad guy to shoot off. If it is awkward, or takes some wiggling around once you get prone, then keep wiggling and find a good stable position. Next, check your 360,…Continue

Read WOD 11/10/11. 11/14/11 WOD starts the same as 11/10, make sure your pistol is unloaded, press check, press check again, and if you dry fire during this exercise, please do so into body armor hanging on a chair, or similar arrangement. Draw pistol, establish grip in holster, as you clear the holster, drop into a one knee, kneeling position, scan/assess appropriately before standing up, reholster. Repeat 20X.
