Practiced some of Modern Samurai Project, LLC black belt standards yesterday using a crappy iPhone app shot timer and most shots didn’t pick up. I got the 5 shots at three yards consistently. Timer wouldn’t work on the 7 yard 1 sec A zone. Cool to see zone hits in the snow
👏So proud of the progress our students made at Home Defense 101 yesterday!

This is the final drill of the day, we also made them do from a cold start at the beginning of the lesson.

A cold start is a more realistic assessment of how they would perform under stress and panic, with no preparation and timed pressure of everyone watching them.

Then, we worked through the issues we saw: not indexing mags, poor grip, forgetting to disengage safeties, and for many, it was the 1st time shooting fast, since rapid fire isn't allowed at most public ranges.

For students who started with us from Pistol 101, this was either their 2nd or 3rd lesson, after Pistol 102 to buy their 1st gun.

For folks who came to us with fear of recoil, I was so proud to see them by the end of Home Defense 101, confidently putting shots fast on 8.5x11 paper at 5yds!

The biggest illuminating thing they learned was the difference between marksmanship vs defensive accuracy, and that in a life and death situation, they can absolutely shoot faster, without looking at their sights, with the proper grip to mitigate recoil and keep shots within that paper (ie. center mass).

Most students shaved off half their time or more, with less misses than when they started.

Thanks to instructor Roberta Tarnove for leading a great class and instructor Gio Cardenas for helping us run the class smoothly.

Wishing Robbie great training as she heads to Oregon to train with Modern Samurai Project, LLC and I'll be training with Tap Rack Bang Training March 17 at their monthly advanced CCW.

These skills are perishable, folks, so keep training! We'll see ya at our LAPS Spring Community Range Day Sat March 26 and our next monthly MARCH Pistol 101 Weekend is Sun March 27. We offer Home Defense 101 only 3 times a year or more if enough ppl join the wait list...hit the linktree for info:

Excellent RDS Instructor training last week with @modern_samurai_project Scott covered all bases in and out / up and down. We highly recommend training with him if you want to up your game and become more efficient in the way you train, teach and perform whether your LE, Mil or civilian. Will definitely be training with him again 👍🏽👊🏽. If you don’t find the time to train with @modern_samurai_project then you are missing out. If you want to be one of the best you have to train the best. There is always something to learn, there is always something to adjust, there is always a different way of doing some things. Never stop learning and always be a student… DONE!!

I’ve taken the Modern Samurai Project, LLC class twice now and I just registered for his August class.

I personally believe that all law enforcement and defensive shooters should be making the transition to target-focused shooting instead of front-sight focused shooting for a number of reasons but predominantly for target identification as well as foreground and background awareness. If you are making the transition to the red dot 🔴 Scott is the guy to help you with it. Check them out! You won’t regret it.
THANK YOU so much for sponsoring The Mingle again this year! It means so much and it is deeply appreciated!
Hands down one of the best classes I’ve attended. Excellent teach and tons of knowledge. Highly recommend taking a class with him. A+

Even though drawing a gun is drawing a gun, there are small parts of a technique that can be fine-tuned to specific modes of carry, such as appendix carry.
