FEATURED IN TRAINING
Next time you're practicing on the range, here's a way to greatly enhance the survival usefulness of that training at no additional cost and with no additional time. Just preceding or simultaneously with the drawstroke, move. Laterally if possible, because lateral movement will likely cause your opponent to miss you. And, move to cover if at all possible. Use another target stand, a car, a barrel, a curb anything at all.
Especially a curb. Most of us don't practice enough using small cover to our advantage. But stand, say, 10 feet from a training partner, you near a curb and your partner away. Then lie down behind the curb, and your partner will probably report that they have a clear shot at only about half your body. That curb's a pretty good odds enhancer.
An acquaintance of mine is a firearms trainer for a sheriff's office, and he starts every recruit class this way. Starting with the first live round these mostly virgin shooters fire, they move to cover to do so. After the habit is ingrained, if they're asked to shoot without any available cover on the range, it just doesn't feel right to them.
Cover of some sort is almost always available in the real world. Moving to it is a good habit to have.
