    Nothing like getting hot brass in your head or the side of your face ! Or maybe even some stray hairs in the slide...

    Along the "gunkata" angle. You don't have to put together any contrived style to incorporate firearms into your training. A buddy of mine who teaches an Arnis/Kenpo hybrid had me help him with this video.



    The base concept was to show that when turning to face a threat behind me that I always step FORWARD with the weapon side leg before pivoting. This gives me the the advantage of adding distance from the threat while I am moving the weapon away from an attempted grab instead of into one.

    This pivot and turn is taken directly from some Kenpo and Filipino Martial Arts instruction that I have taken. I think it’s a good example of how simple concepts from martial arts can be incorporated into “regular” training. You don’t have to be on a quest for a black belt or looking to deploy exotic oriential weapons to take useful techniques and incorporate them into your firearms training.

    One important rule for anyone new to firearms to learn. Don't forget this, because it's very important......

    Be more like Hickock45 and less like James Yeager.

    I think that you are selling yourself short if you do not include firearms into your trainnig. Even if you do not like guns, learn about them. I think the second worst feeling you could have is realizing that you are in a gun fight and do not have a gun. The only thing worse that I can think of right away is having a gun in a gunfight, pulling the trigger and all you get is a "click."

    This on the Handicapped Hunt. Iadded to my freezer some Venison . This is another reason to own a firearm. I grew up handling different firearms. My Draughters and Gransons have been traught proper firearms safety. I suggest that a well prepared home have at least a .22 rifle,a shotgun and a hunting rifle. opital would a pistol that everyone in the home can use for defense. Oh, I start all b egineers with the .22 and work to a good hunting caliber that are comfordable shooting. Joe

    Tap, rack, bang. Still better than being gunless.

    Sometimes it's just so simple...

    40 year old H&R Topper Jr. in .410. Add hunters safety course, small game license, beautiful autumn day, and 10 year old kid with 20/15 vision.

    It doesn't get much better than that.

    So, MightyMcClaw, looks like you have been working on your "gunkata" in between designing your RPG game?
