    I admittedly haven't trained C.A.R.

    Question - in one of the primary positions Paul Castle teaches, he's in a bladed stance with his weak side facing the target and he shoots with the pistol tucked in tight to his torso. Does this not reduce your ability to address targets to your left quickly?

    Ditto on the 45 degree cant. It "locks out" much better for me, more like a punch at closer distances...but I find that for more longer range one hand shooting, I still like to bring it back closer to vertical.

    CAR is great stuff for engaging targets in cramped environments like behind the wheel of your car with targets approaching your support side.

    If the purpose is to lock it out like a punch, why not bring it completely horizontal instead of 45 degrees? What makes 45 degrees the magic number?

    For longer range shooting, why would you not bring it back completely vertical so you can employ the sights as they were designed to be utilized?

    Point your finger at something. If you are like most people your elbow will be canted 45 deg (or so) outboard, not straight down.

    I think it feels a tad more bio-mechanically comfortable.

    If you then change your "point" into a pistol grip you will see the angle Im talking about. As long as you can hit what you are shooting at I could care less if the pistol is vertical or canted. Most schools I have gone to let you choose which one you prefer.

    And in reality, if you watch how I shoot:

    My cant isn't really a strict 45 deg. just a slight cant. Some people seem to cant more or less than others.

    As to why I tend to bring it back to vertical at range...I guess it's just the way I am comfortable "getting into my sights". You can still get a normal sight picture with a cant.

    As to CAR.

    http://tgace.wordpress.com/2010/10/2...r-axis-relock/

    Like everything else, it has it’s share of critics. Some say that the sideways stance presents armor gaps to the opponent. Others say that the odds of self-inflicted shots is increased. Personally… I see this more as a “transitional” and special use technique. Special use in situations like tubular assaults and those described previously, and transitional in the sense that it isn’t necessarily going to be the ONLY stance that you will use in a confrontation. I can see going from retention, to CAR, to arms extended and back again all within one encounter. I also think it can be useful at “in your face ranges” where the bent arms present better retention leverage and defensive options.

    Shame it doesn't mention he's a sub 50 day US Marine boot camp drop-out.

    But hey, I'm only rehashing old bullshit, I'm sure there's lots of dumb fucking asses who will pay Severe to teach them how to shoot [themselves]

    Edit..

    This is fucking funny Ralph is offering "Clinics" in teaching a number of skills including these three which I found rather amusing:

    Security Officer survival skills in church safety with church security team
    Security Officer survival skills in church security training.
    Security Officer survival skills in church security plans and church security measures

    For which you'll happily rip yourself off to the tune of:

    * $1,500.00 clinic fee for a one day, 8 hours clinic.

    * Roundtrip airfare.

    * Meals and lodging.

    BARGAIN!

    Church must me a dangerous place for a Security Guard now a days ?

    Are you right-handed left-eye dominant? I've seen people shoot with this same slight angle who had that "disadvantage, I always assumed that was helping them get the right sight picture.
