Can you brag about your pistol shooting?

 

The 30-10 pistol training program.IMG_9898

This week during a qualification and tactical shoot, I had the opportunity to see just about every bad pistol shooting posture/habbit/training scar a shooter could have.  Every one of these shooters are 10+ years veteran shooters.  Not new students.

Training scars and bad habbits have been built and reinforced for years.  The ONLY way to break these bad habits is training!  Proper training.  Consistent training, as shooting is a parishable skill.

A solid foundation of the fundamentals is KEY!  This cannot be overstated.  You can never shoot at the level you desire without proper fundamental basics.  Get back to the basics.  Dry fire is the basics.  This program allows you to practice at home, or wherever you are in just minutes a day.  This WILL get you shooting pistol worthy of bragging at the range.  Only 10 min a day, and no ammo.

Most will not complete this training, as it is not “sexy”.  They will spend their money on ammo and guns, and range fees, and parts, but will not spend $47 on proper training.  And they will never shoot the way they want to.

This program will not only get you shooting, but will also keep you current, and proficient with your speed and accuracy.

This is not my program, I am not selling it.  I recommmend this training product because it works.  Period.

This is how the Tier 1 Military Operators learned how, and this is how they keep their skill sets up.  Don’t think that there is a shortcut, or a sexier way to get it down, if there was, they would be doing it.  If shooting live ammo at the range would get you there, they would do that, as they have a MUCH larger budget than you do.

Want to shoot like they do, then do what they do.  And they do this!  Or you can look like and shoot like the pictures here taken this week at a Gov shooting range.

Behavioral Programming Book

My latest book, Behavioral Programming; The Manipulation of Social Interaction, is now available through Amazon, and will soon be in the ITunes bookstore. This book comes from 6 years of research that started out as a program designed to enable  US Special Operations personel to acquire human assets  and solicit help quickly behind enemy lines.

Behavioral Programming is the only influence/manipulation/programming system out there that can work completely through multimedia only.  With this system of psychology you can alter a persons behavior entirely through texting!  No face to face is needed.  No human contact is needed.  No vocal exchange is needed for this to work completely.  In fact, often times it is advantageous to do so.  Think about this, many times when face to face with someone you have said something that you meant, but smiled, chuckled, and/or made a funny face while saying it.  That told the other person that you were embarrassed to say it and that you would not stick to it, you really didnt mean it.  Your body language and tone of voice gave away your weakness.  When you deliver programming via text messages, there is no self sabatage with those things because they are taken out of the picture.  You can say what you mean, and the other person will not be distracted by your physical antics that take meaning and seriousness away from your words.

Behavioral Programming works at the most basic natural and subconscious level to program behavior where it begins, in the brain.  What you say, and the context that you say it in has all the meaning.  Your tone of voice may help or hurt your true emphasis on your words, but is not needed at all.  You understand all the books you read without someone reading them to you, and they can to.  This system of psychoprogramming is so effective that it works through the air via phone text or email.  Using texting to program someone is like having a wireless router to their head for remote brain hacking.  It gives us the direct access we need to them without actually having to be with them or even see the person.

Nothing out there has been taught like this.  The human brain is a computer, learn to hack that and you can program it to do anything.  Learning the code is the key, and the code is Behavioral Programming.

Some new custom, hand made blades

This month I got 3 new knives in the mail to check out.  By coincidence, they are all 3 tanto style blades.  These are all hand forged.  I have been testing the first one quite a bit, and will post some more pictures and videos shortly.  The first blade is made by Justin Vititoe.  It is made from a Nicholson file, 1095 steel.

The next two blades are hand made by Edge Alaska.  I got them from Mike Deshazo of Condition 1 Tactical (who makes awesome low profile backpacks by the way) to play with for a while.

I will post more pictures and videos of all these blades in action shortly.  They are beautiful to look at and have performed very well with chores.

I tested these blades with a basic survival chore; building a bow drill kit, with hardwood.

For a side by side comparison, we used the Extreme Tanto and a KBar for the same tasks on the same piece of weed.  The KBar went dull and unusable before even cutting our 18″ piece off of the log in the woods.  The Etreme Tanto remained sharp and very useable, and finished the big work, as well as the fine whittling to finish the bow drill kit and start a fire.  The spine of the Etreme Tanto also lends itself to baton through wood, which is not reasonably possible with the KBar as its sharpened back edge is not good for pounding on.

The blade still looks new, works perfectly, and is ready for the next chore.

Carpenter CTS XHP Alloy

(Nominal Analysis)
1.60 C, 0.50 Mn, 0.40 Si, 16.00 Cr, 0.35 Ni, 0.80 Mo, 0.45 V, Bal. Fe

Air hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion resistant alloy which can be described as either a high hardness Type 440C stainless steel or a corrosion resistant D2 tool steel. Possesses corrosion resistance equivalent to Type 440C stainless but can attain a maximum hardness of 64 HRC, approaching that of D2 tool steel.  Now available in strip product form.

This proprietary alloy is in the Carpenter CTS™ family of alloys that offer superior edge retention and surface finish, an ability to be machined to a fine edge, and consistent heat-treatability from lot to lot.  Consider CTS alloys for many blade applications including commercial food processing, paper processing, textile, packaging, recycling/refuse, kitchen knives, hand tools, scissors/shears, shaving razors, sport/hunting knives, ice skates, military/defense, law enforcement, salon blades and various surgical/medical applications.

Look for more on these coming soon.

 

UPDATE:

New kydex sheaths for these blades are in production by Jim Wood in Indiana.
