    In my mid 50’s and a retired combat vet. I wish as many people as possible can be blessed with this and so many other videos. Sadly, I see dark days coming for America. The more we (civilians) learn to protect our selves and family the better. Our military is dried up for now. I have over 30 guns, all fully loaded. But they are worthless if you can’t survive the shoot out.

    This a great exercise to do with a projected laser dot sight

  6. actionjksn on March 8, 2023 at 2:42 am

    Makes sense to me. I actually do this with both AR and pistol, when I’m home alone. I practice slicing the pie around corners and stuff like that. I think this will help you to perform better if the real deal ever happens.

    When going around corners it’s actually better to swing really wide around them, instead hugging the corners really close like you usually see in the movies.

    Marching band experience helps a lot with this.

  8. Terry Hinkemeyer on March 8, 2023 at 2:43 am

    Marching band finally coming in handy in life!

  12. Shevet Levi on March 8, 2023 at 2:53 am

    What he said makes sense and explains that strange "SWAT walk" you see in action movies.

  13. Doug Fisher on March 8, 2023 at 2:56 am

    Not much can help in active engagement (since most of us thankfully don’t that experience), but this definitely helps. Note operators short concise steps on a clear, aim true. Good tips 👌

  14. syntheticperson on March 8, 2023 at 2:56 am

    Exactly! Seen so many different takes on this and this is one of the first tips I’ve seen that nails it.

  15. CashCow on March 8, 2023 at 3:00 am

    Ahhh…that’s why the inner city guys hit so randomly…cos they jumping all over the place like some buffoons

  16. Nathan Bowersox on March 8, 2023 at 3:01 am

    The challenge gets more exciting and realistic for me doing it with my kids Legos on the ground

  17. Mary Ann Grubbs on March 8, 2023 at 3:02 am

  18. Maverick G17 on March 8, 2023 at 3:04 am

  19. James DeLong on March 8, 2023 at 3:06 am

    I know I’m going to add this to my training days

  20. Steve Cochran on March 8, 2023 at 3:08 am

    Tanks… I’m going to incorporate that into my lesson plans…….if that’s okay.

  21. Cindy Robertson on March 8, 2023 at 3:09 am

  22. 1979infantrymedic on March 8, 2023 at 3:09 am

  26. Makingnewnamesisdumb on March 8, 2023 at 3:13 am

    Is one of the safety rules not getting the cops called on you because your neighbors saw you running around your yard with a gun?

  27. Nevada Desert Rat on March 8, 2023 at 3:13 am

    Good video. The one thing to add is dryfire practice at the range as you are doing your moving practice.

  28. I need a beer! on March 8, 2023 at 3:14 am

    I “clear” my house all the time haha

  29. Anthony Luisi on March 8, 2023 at 3:18 am

  30. shaun obrien on March 8, 2023 at 3:19 am

    Sit down point your gun at the wall, is it moving? yes hmm your lower body is stationary whys the gun moving?

  31. DM R on March 8, 2023 at 3:22 am

    Yes, because as one of the mots gun violent nations on the planet we all need to know how to handle the gun – but if they werent legal and all over the place – YOU WOULDNT NEED TO DO THIS!!!! GUNS ARE NOT A RIGHT!

  32. Dale Parker on March 8, 2023 at 3:22 am
