I’ve got something of a man crush on Dom Raso. The same may be true for Colion Noir, who’s incorporated the gun guru into his Noir program. In the how-high-can-your-production-values-go episode of Dom Showcase (in Noir Season Six), the former SEAL takes on a spree killer in a darkened theater. In the video below he demonstrates . . .
unorthodox firing positions, blending in and finding concealment.
I reckon a lot of what the Dom’s demonstrating and recommending is instinctive. Do you really have to train yourself to be able to pivot in a small space while drawing your gun and ducking down for cover?
There’s nothing wrong with that kind of training, which you can do dry firing in the comfort of your own living room. But I reckon someone who knows how to draw quickly and efficiently can make ready in a variety of situations without too much training.
Another question: should a theater goer under ballistic attack stay put and shoot the bad guy — or guys — or beat feet? What if you’re with a family member or friend? Shooting at someone tends to draw return fire, you know. And what of shoot and move, shoot and move?
Anyway, if I had an ounce of Dom’s sangfroid I wouldn’t be worried about any of it. Just saying.
