  • Lateral Motion

  • One Handed & Weak Handed Shooting
  • Non-Diagnostic Linear Malfunction Clearing

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.

Because I will be doing my annual Memorial Day ruck on Monday I decided to try the Murphy Challenge today and it is no joke. It took me a lot longer than I expected.
✅ 1 mile run
✅ 100 pull ups
✅ 200 push ups
✅ 300 squats
✅ 1 mile run.
Oh and do it with a vest on. Needless to say the pull ups in a vest were not happening for me so I did most of them unvested.

Memorial Day weekend for me is a somber time to reflect and remember those men and women we have lost. The sacrifice they made for us can never be forgotten. I am honored to be part of the @memorial3gun Foundation which does an incredible job in honoring our special forces soldiers we have lost to insure they are never forgotten and to support their gold star families.

To any military friends dealing with the loss of a teammate that needs someone to talk to my phone is always open.

Had a great weekend shooting the @americandefensetarheelchalleng. It was my first major 3 Gun match of the year and I definitely was a bit rusty and dealing with kidney stones at the same time added to the “fun”. The match had a wide range of challenges including targets out to 650 yards, flying clays and this craziest moving target I have seen yet. Squad 3 was loaded with some great shooters and there was no shortage of fun and laughs along the way.

It was great to see so many @memorial3gun Ambassadors out there representing the foundation.

Thanks to my sponsors @seekinsprecision_official, @vortexoptics, @eberlestock, @harrisandsons & @a3gmunitions for their continued support.

Great weekend of shooting with an amazing squad at the @americandefensetarheelchalleng. Thanks for for pushing me and the laughs along the way.

I am always touched by the many young men and women that have taken on the role of protectors of our freedoms. This weekend’s event gave us the opportunity to show our support them and to spread the mission of the @memorial3gun Foundation. Being able to talk to so many people about how the Foundation supports the Gold Star Families and honors their loved ones is so impactful. To hear others stories of their loved ones and to share just a few moments with them is a reminder of the incredible sacrifices so many have made for us. I am forever thankful.

One of the highlights for me was when LTC Bob Stone presented us with the 5th Ranger Training Battalion challenge coin. These coins carry a significant meaning to me and I am honored to have received it.

The Henry Big Boy Lever Action rifle with the Ruger Vaquero revolver to honor this date in Old West history when Morgan Earp was born in 1854 in Pella, Marian County, Iowa to Nicholas Earp and his second wife, Virginia Anne Cooksey. He served as a deputy marshal under Charlie Basset in Dodge City before moving to Arizona where along with brother, Wyatt, worked as shotgun messenger for the Wells Fargo company, and deputy sheriff of Pima County and deputy marshal in Tombstone. This photo of Morgan was taken around 1881 in Tombstone, before the famous gunfight at the OK Corral. Morgan was shot and killed on March 18, 1882 at the age of 30.
