Concepts that should be better understood in the shooting world.
Thinking about public defensive encounters.
For you Glock fans.
“Trust The Trainers. Regardless of the topic, most agencies have someone that has made it their mission to be an expert in the area. The problem is that most of them haven’t sewed on stripes or obtained some higher rank that gives them a seat at the boring table. If a leader wants to provide their officers with the safest environment possible, empower those that are dedicated in doing just that.”
A shooting drill for those of you who carry/deploy rifles for home defense.
You would be surprised how commonly I hear people talking about these CCW myths. Let Massad Ayoob set you straight.
“I hate to break this to you, but… the world is generally better and safer than you think. At the very least, things have gotten better over time. If you could choose to travel back to any point in human history where most people have the best chances at safety and prosperity, the data says you should stay here in the present. Sorry about that!”

Yesterday I posted an article about my recent experiences surviving Burning Man. The traveling companion I mentioned in the article is my friend Nathalie. I met Nathalie on a very adventurous trip to Costa Rica a few years ago and she accompanied me to Burning Man this year. Here are her impressions of the event.
Nathalie is incredibly smart and a far better writer than I am. She has recently left a very lucrative corporate HR career to focus on her own business coaching, teaching, and developing leaders. If your business is in need of some HR or leadership development, I’d encourage you to contact her.
“If you’re like me, you can probably cast your mind back over the last 10 or 20 years and not remember a single gun battle with ninjas. Yet, there are probably a few weeks, or even months, in that same time period where you were short a flipper due to some pedestrian reason like a slip-and-fall in the bathroom, a spill off the neighbor kid’s skateboard, or a botched slide into third at the company softball game.”
