Drill of the Week #3

In the defensive world, we have to always keep in mind the "Plus 1" rule. 

This means that there's always one more threat, one more weapon, one more way out, etc.

Looking for the "Plus 1" is hard. It takes time to lay down the Neural Pathways needed to keep searching for that second threat, or to break your Target Fixation(tunnel vision).

Engaging that Plus 1 Threat takes a firearms skill called Multiple Targets and Target Transitions, or what we call "MT&T" for short. There are three types of Target Transitions and each one is based upon what you can SEE and IDENTIFY in your field of vision.

In this week's Drill of the Week, I'll show you a really fun drill called the Fast Line of Sight Drill. The practical idea is that if you are confronted with two threats, both of whom are clearly in your field of view, how hard can you drive the handgun between those threats with effective fire? Well, with this drill, you get to find out!

Here's the big thing though, if your Shooting Fundamentals and Draw are bad, you won't do well at this drill. It's like we say at SMT, over and over and over: "Any advanced tactic is based upon the mastery of the fundamentals." This is one more drill that will prove that out. Check it out.
