The Intuitive Defense Shooting Course is not designed to make you the best shooter you can be on the range, rather its goal is to help you quickly develop fundamental skills that you can apply in a worst-case scenario defensive shooting situation.

IDS is based on years of constantly evolving information about how the body works and what really happens during Dynamic Critical Incidents and has been heavily influenced by the diverse group of instructors that are certified to teach it and the thousands of students who have been through courses all around the world. The program features a variety of specialty drills and training methods that the student will be able to utilize in their own practice after the course in order to continue to develop their abilities.

Students will fire a minimum of 800 rounds.

Students are welcome to bring extra ammunition, as there will be certain drills where round count can easily be increased.”

A classic from the archives. It’s as funny today as it was 5 years ago. My buddy Steve wasn’t quite prepared for this stage and fortunately for us it was caught on video and I couldn’t help@but a few of my touches to the video.

The video also captures so much of the good times that we have with our shooting family.

Lots of work got done at the range yesterday with @michael_berger21 & I. Finished with a solid positional & transition practice session with targets out past 500 yards.

I’m shooting the @a3gmunitions 75grn 223 ammo. Match it up with the @seekinsprecision_official NX15 and the @vortexoptics Razor Gen III 1-10 scope for incredible accuracy & consistency.

I have been carry the @streamlightinc Wedge as my EDC for a couple of years and it’s one of the best EDC lights I have ever had. I had a chance to see their new Wedge XT this weekend and it is going to be a huge winner for EDC. Compact, bright and the same battery as the full size Wedge they left nothing out.

Took out the @kalashnikovusaofficial AK47 out for a change of pace yesterday. Put about 50 rounds through it before running it in the match. Definitely a fun gun to run but very different from my traditional AR.
