I trained with two Navy SEAL weapons instructors the other day [not shown]. I’ll be sharing some of Mark T Cochiolo’s and Gordon Evans’ tips in future posts. Suffice it to say, the dynamic duo taught me more in ten minutes than I’d learned during entire training courses. They reaffirmed my belief that the quality of firearms training is more important than quantity. Sure, you should repeat basic techniques until they become instinctive. But I reckon the best training teaches you how to apply basic self-defense strategies on the fly, under stress. To improvise. And to know your limitations. Four hours of force-on-force firearms training is worth months of just about anything else, except maybe dry fire. How often do you train and what do you do?
