    What do you think of the BLM protests?

    How can LEO prepare for ambushes like those that have occurred recently?

Patreon Questions

Ryan DuRussel

Will there finally be an awakening to the fact that lowest common denominator training for LE is not enough? From my personal experiences I still get eye rolls because I carry a  a CAT TQ and have a Dark Angel DARK med kit with me during Reserve details

Opening Thoughts

Why do we care what he used? I don't train and prepare for bad situations based off of what platform, rifle, caliber, or type of weapon someone has. I train to be smart, process information, make good decisions, and know that if I had to shoot my handgun out to 50 yards in a terrible situation, that I could do it cause then everything else closer is easy (. Maybe I am missing something?
 

Understanding cover and concealment
Maybe knowing when it is time to get involved and when it isn't

And know WTF you are doing

Stevie: I have at times come home to an empty home with the door open.  Thankfully those two times nobody was inside & it was merely a user error, but in that scenario I always question wether I should announce myself and become a target, or quietly search my home before making it known I have arrived.  How would you guys go about that situation, or any other of similar likeness?

Matthew: 1.) Living in an apartment I have to worry more unintended ballistic penetration, than if I was in a home on a piece of land. Recent tests show that the .223/5.56 round to be best, due to it's attributes of not penetrating too far, and the amount of rounds in most magazines (ohio approved recently 30).  I'm debating getting a tax stamp & building and SBR vs. making AR-15 pistol, which do you think is better?  2.) Aside from better securing of the only door to my place (I live on the 3rd fl) to keep people out when I'm home, what do you suggest people  do if they think someone has already breached your apartment while you were out? Or worse you don't know?  and you may be ambushed? Setting some detection devices or something the intruder won't know they set off or that you would?

Jason: If it comes down to lethal force to defend your home, assuming all three are readily at hand, would Mike choose a pistol, carbine, or shotgun?

YouTube Questions

Is there a storage method that Mike recommends for securing a night stand gun but still allow reasonable access.

MAIN TOPIC

Frank spent 18 years in the Army, 11 of those in Special Forces, and 7 of which you were not only deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan but training others to fight with their weapons.  What made you get involved with training others?

When did you get involved in shooting competition?

Did your competition experiences help you in combat?  And viceversa with regards to keeping a cool head?

Some people poo-poo competition as being non-applicable to combative firearms usage.  Is this a falsehood?  You teach “Performance Shooting,” how is that different?

Big proponent of VISION, and seeing things.  This sounds so basic and yet so very important.  But how do you “teach” vision?

Running Drills vs. Shooting Exercises, please explain

You’re kind of known for being THE guy for bridging the gap between competition speed and accuracy and what is needed in real world tactical operations.  

Gear- Proctor sights.  The guys like them; what was the thought process behind them?

Patreon Questions:

1. In his Recoil article he stated that a person should see his rear sights then his front then the target.  This is quite counter to conventional instruction which teaches a hard front sight. Why does he think his way is better? How/why did he decide to from traditional instruction?  And has he taught someone to use this method and "see" like him when they could not before?

2. He is famous for his recoil management. Where is the pressure of his support hand greatest? On the palm of the hand? The  "drumstick"  of the thumb ? Somewhere else? All the above?

3. What is his overall opinion of red dots on pistols?

4. What is the #1 thing he took away from competition that directly applied to the battlefield?
