Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Perhaps you would care to develop your critique more fully. From taking classes with them Chris seemed to be a natural shooter while Travis seemed to be more about the process of learning how to do things right and not do things wrong. Better handle held cams that could support higher production values came around and the internet was better able to handle streaming so more people could see previews. How is looking at a specific tree or something on the wall beneficial when training to get better at increasing situational awareness? Given everything that's been mentioned over here there is one thing I have to know. He stood there and stared at it for a least a slow five second count before recognizing the jam and clearing it. I would really like to see the vast majority of the folks who do that in a course where there may legitimately be targets moving around, and see how many miss it.
Which really is why the scan and assess is done. Product Information: Great video with a lot of lessons. Fortunately I didn't futz around with the flip flop long enough to hardwire those habits myself. I think they also had complementary styles. I make myself take notice of some random object to my side or to the rear each time I do a search and assess. You shoot the gun twice a year. I look at the original vids from the standpoint that they greatly helped to drive interest and progressed the current training market from both the consumer and the provider points of things.
It's alright, if you can look past a lot of the gimmicks and whatnot on the first Art of the Tactical Carbine. What I do works for me, has worked for me, and will continue working for me. People mock the chamber check but god if I my coworkers would do it when they get a stoppage. I think they're fine, but like any training course, take everything with a grain of salt. Just look at their gear setup! Chris and Travis definitely had charisma and were easy to listen too. Its worth watching but judiciously.
I wouldn't say there is one video, or class for that matter, that will cover it all. When I picked up the Magpul Vids, I wasn't in the right situation to goto classes based on cost and location. That said, you will have to adapt your firing position to the terrain you are faced with. Is there something more highly recommended? Searching and assessing is better than not searching and assessing, even if you don't catch everything every time you search and assess. They didn't invent anything new really, but they marketed the crap out of it, and lit the fire for a lot of people to better themselves. Plus, it gives you good drills to run with your team.
While the ideal is to achieve a text-book position, you will not always get all the grip fundamentals down to a tee when in a real situation. Flip flopping the rifle a second time he grabbed another mag and managed to seat this one. Also, is one version better than the other? It's alright, if you can look past a lot of the gimmicks and whatnot on the first Art of the Tactical Carbine. Now I see people doing this crap in all of these online videos, and you can tell they aren't checking their chambers because they're just trying to look cool. Now I'll admit I don't paint my followers, but I do think it might be a good tool to break some bad training habits and force you to really look.

It began as a joke between my friend and I, then we sat down and busted out the whisky one night. I used to tease certain guys that the reason for they came up with the mag flip, was to get those darn early pmags to come free from the weapon. It may not be 100% relative now, but I still own all their videos and still watch them now and then. There is no denying the importance of situational awareness, so this is a great tool in the set and should be easy to apply.
Do you object to the stances used? I thought the videos were good. When I first got a bootleg copy, I was suprised on the upside that the video had regular guys making regular shooter mistakes. Do you get what I'm saying now? But if you're able to stream. I admit I expected the video to be a bunch of hand picked students that made no mistakes. I think the videos also contributed to the current training renisance we are in. It's like the coworker that is gay. Looking at some random thing, although with the intent of making more out of the scan and assess, is not the same.
Usually I will shoot with a friend or two for accountability's sake. Will download his Performance Handgun video tomorrow! Brutal honesty time; that is what I was essentially doing when I was flip flopping. Again, breaking tunnel vision and noticing what's around me. He clearly tells a student he's not trying to fling the mag across the range, that's just a result of trying to move quickly. I even have the helicopter video, though I always fly commercial ; Are they still up to date? It's like the coworker that is gay.
There's also the little fake look around they do when they finish firing and prepare to put the weapon on safe or holster it. I just have to chime in and say those Magpul videos changed my whole world and I give them all the credit for that. For me as an individual, I learned a lot. Of course, it is situationally dependent; don't seek to use support when not needed. Years later I saw a young guy at the range shouting to himself as he reloaded. People mock the chamber check but god if I my coworkers would do it when they get a stoppage.
I watch people over and over stuff fresh mags into double and triple feed malfunctions. They fire a string off shots at their targets, then supposedly look left and right, and then safe their weapon. What's funny is to watch the videos and just look at the gun setups. I disagree with the method you are using, and I suggested that in order to gain something from scanning and assessing it needs to focus on something that will affect your decision making cycle. They definitely had a slick production value that built on my first point.
