Training survival: Building shooting muscle

Police One
by Ralph Mroz

“Since you carry a gun for self-defense or to save the life of another, then you are concerned with combative firearms skills rather than shooting merely for the experience of shooting. To reach this goal, you engage in training, mostly in the form of practice on a range. How close you get to your goal will depend on the effectiveness of your training. … Let’s use weight lifting and body building as an analogy. If you want to get bigger and stronger, we know that you have to concentrate on working the large muscle groups … Now, go to any range and watch people there. You’ll see a great deal of shooting for tiny groups … You’ll see people shooting at ten to thirty yards, rather than at zero to seven yards.” (02/02/07)
