Learning the Combat Focus Shooting Method, Part 2: The Balance of Speed and Precision

In events that I was involved in, I do not recall seeing the sights. There was too much going on, and happening too fast. Acquisition of sights, must be done rapidly and instinctively. I also believe that training should include some stress and the shooter must learn to be calm, regardless of what is going on around him, and not being slow in movement.

Gun Culture 2.0

I began this series of posts by recalling a Facebook post and comments about Rob Pincus and his Combat Focus Shooting method, and I want to return to it in wrapping this series up.

Recall that one commentator posted a sarcastic meme (is that redundant?) combining a picture of Clint Smith of Gunsite and Thunder Ranch fame pointing at the rear sights on a pistol with the text “See these? They are sights. You should use them.”

I was surprised, therefore, when I got to the Combat Focus Shooting Instructor Conference last month and found that Rob Pincus not only knows that guns have sights, but he advocates using them.

Indeed, I noted this in particular when I test fired a prototype Avidity Arms PD-10, which Pincus has been involved in developing. It had a bright Ameriglo front sight on it.

To be sure, Pincus has a particular…

Officials Say Michigan Man Acted In Self-Defense, Illustrates The Typical Defensive Gun Use

Give Me Liberty

H/T Bearing Arms.

A Canton, MI man is off the hook after officials ruled his shooting of another man was self-defense. The 26-year-old man was at a woman’s home when the woman’s ex-boyfriend entered the premises and attacked him.

A 26-year-old Ypsilanti man acted in self-defense when he fired a shot that wounded another man’s leg and grazed his scrotum during a domestic dispute inside a Canton mobile home, authorities have confirmed.

The shooter was at a Canton woman’s home when her ex-boyfriend walked in and began to attack him, prompting him to fire a shot from a handgun, according to police reports.

The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has denied criminal charges against the shooter.

“Based on the facts of the case, it was deemed he acted in self-defense,” Canton Deputy Police Chief Craig Wilsher said.

With a wound like that, I suspect the injured man will be rethinking…

When Observation Alone is Not Enough – Learning the Combat Focus Shooting Method, Part 1

Gun Culture 2.0

As noted in my earlier post on shooting versus not shooting during my observations of training classes, I have generally tried to act as a non-participating observer. But when Rob Pincus informed me – it was not really a question – on the second day that I would be shooting during his Combat Focus Shooting Instructor Conference, I did not argue. I was a guest at his event; his range, his rules.

Pincus thought it was important for me to actually be instructed in the Combat Focus Shooting (CFS) method to understand it better, and he was right.

I was put through an abbreviated version of the Fundamentals of Combat Focus Shooting course, and so won’t recap the entire process. (Melody Lauer has done a good job of this.) Rather, I want to focus on three points: the importance of context, sighted versus unsighted fire…

Let’s Keep the Gun Control Laws That Work

Give Me Liberty

H/T JPFO.

This means we can toss out all of the gun control laws as the do not have not ever worked.

A mass murderer killed almost 60 people in Las Vegas. Hundreds more were injured by gunshot wounds and by being trampled in the mass panic that followed. Politicianscelebrities and gun control activists called for new gun laws. That isn’t a new idea. We already have 23 thousand firearms regulations. Let’s look at the recent proposals. We can keep the gun-control laws that work and get rid of the rest.

Demand Universal Background Checks– Lots of states already require background checks when firearms are bought or sold. The murderer in Las Vegas bought his guns legally, so he passed his background checks. So did the murderers who killed people at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, at the Umpqua Community…
