“External Focus” Gun Self Defense and Gun Offensive Training

After you learn gun mechanics and marksmanship skills, all your gun training must also be conducted under some level of reality stress, interactively, with you too as a target receiving incoming rounds. I don’t care if it is just a tennis ball machine pumping sporadic balls, Airsoft, paintball, or even a rubber band gun in some training! But something needs to be firing back at you to learn more, realistic gun fighting techniques. Living breathing opponents are necessary for any credible gun self-defense and gun offensive training program. Oddly, this is a very radical gun training approach. There constitutes a new paradigm shift in the world of gun training.”- Hock

“In the survival gun shooting courses taught in my typical seminars we use simulated ammo, replicas and cover vital gun tactics and gun strategies in the subjects listed below. We are in the forefront of the new gun fighting revolution, a format of training that starts–I said STARTS–with a new gun student experiencing an exchange of gunfire from Day One with some form of simulated gunfire. This sets a realistic standard in gun self-defense and gun offensive training from which all subsequent gun training may be properly evaluated. Many levels of the course consist of gun tactics and may be practiced with simulated ammo anywhere. While I want you to range shoot as often as possible to learn how to run your gun, you can cover much gun survival material without going to the gun range. Live fire training is mandatory and should be continuous but no training experience replaces, interactive, simulated ammo training. ” – Hock

“The enemy is not a one-dimensional, sheet of paper. Training for only this is shallow and incomplete. The enemy is a 3-D, moving, tricky, unique human body with a mind full of independent thought, running, grabbing on you or shooting back, all in a cluttered urban, suburban and/or rural landscapes.” – Hock
