Weird But Effective Tactical Training Tips From A Navy SEAL

Have you thought about the need to become more “tactical?”

Being “tactical” means something very specific:

It’ means you’re more prepared than the challenges that you’ll come up against.

It means that no matter what happens… …you’ll be ready…

…and you WON’T FIGHT FAIR!

But how do you actually become “more tactical?”

As it turns out, there are some weird (but really effective) tactical training tips that you adopt that will help with this!

In this week’s podcast episode, Modern Combat & Survival’s Jeff Anderson interviews retired Navy SEAL Chris Sajnog, the man who literally wrote the book on being a sniper, about 5 things you can start doing RIGHT NOW that will help make you more prepared.

Tactical Firearms Training FAIL: 1 Cop’s “Bathroom Fight” Story

NOTHING about this gunfight was “textbook”

It first seemed like just another normal “Can you please keep it down?” domestic call on a drunken homeowner.

But talking with the man in his hallway, the officer wasn’t getting the response he expected, and things began to heat up.

In one bone-jarring crunch, the officer suddenly found himself being violently hurled into the man’s bathroom, landing on his side on the floor, jammed between the bathtub and the toilet.

As the 200lb attacker continuously stomped away at his head, the officer knew his life was in danger – and his fingers fought like hell to make it to his gun’s grip!

There was only *one thing* that officer said saved his life that fateful night – but you’re not gonna like his answer – and…

Here’s How 1 Cop’s Training FAILED Him In A “Bathroom Gunfight”

Tactical Firearms Training Fail: CQB Lessons From One Cop’s “Bathroom Fight”

In his own words following the incident, the officer claimed…

It was LUCK that saved me… NOT my gear, and NOT my training!”

You see, the officer discovered what too many cops (and civilian gun-owners) find out the hard way…

… that real gunfights look NOTHING like they do in the movies and NOTHING like the shooting scenarios being instructed at so-called “tactical” schools around the nation.

I mean, sure… everyone has to master the “basics” of shooting, right?

The proper way to stand… grip your gun… aim through your sights… breathe… trigger pull… “follow through”… blah, blah, blah.

But be honest…

Do you REALLY think you’re going to adopt your textbook “nose over toes” Isosceles stance, extend your pistol in a two-handed grip toward the target, and warn him verbally to back the f— off before you fire?

No, you won’t.

And look, you and I both know that “luck” isn’t a personal defense strategy either, right?

Your TRAINING is the only thing that’s going to save your life when it’s that “no sh*t moment” and you’re forced to pull the trigger is self-defense, don’t you agree?

But ONLY if it’s based on how you’re likely to be attacked in REAL-LIFE – not some fantasy scenario you’re training for down at the typical local gun range – and NOT in some of these “Disneyland” tactical courses that make you feel like you’re Jason Bourne… but send you home with a false sense of confidence in how well you can protect yourself and those you live in a REAL attack.

The “Israeli Carry” is a really good example of this actually…

With an unloaded weapon, students are trained to simultaneous “draw & rack” their firearm, the same way that many soldiers are taught in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

Sure, it looks SUPER cool at the range…

But for the officer in our story, drawing his weapon with one hand while protecting his head with the other may have gotten him KILLED if he also had to rack the slide to chamber a round while on the floor, stuffed between the toilet and shower.

Makes sense, right?

That’s why all gun-owners who understand this no b.s. reality choose to carry with a round already loaded in the chamber of their carry weapon.

But that’s not the only “staging” you can do to be ready for a close-quarters ambush…

In fact, I’ve looked at hundreds of video footage of real gunfights and in our “extreme counter-ambush training”, I suggest ways to modify your sights… your holster… your ammo choice… and other tricks you can use to be “combat-ready” when you’re attacked in close-quarters with no warning.

Look, the hardcore reality is this…

There’s NOTHING about real life-and-death gunfights that look ANYTHING like the typical “7-15 yard” marksmanship training that goes on down at the “square range.”

I think if you’re open-minded and you take a good, hard, honest look at your own training, you might be surprised just how many “fails” you can erase based on the reality of how attacks happen in real-life.

If you want to dig deeper on how I train for real attacks, you might want to check out this report.

Your life – or the life of someone you love – may depend on it my friend.

Are You FAILING At Your Tactical Gun Training?

Real Gunfight Tactical Training Tips - Survive A Real Life Street Gunfight

We live in dangerous times.

That’s why I’m such a strong advocate for responsible concealed carry with a firearm.

But staying safe with a firearm requires more than just the Desert Eagle .50 caliber handgun and a few trips down to the range.

In fact, right now, if you carry concealed, you could be FAILING in your duties as a concealed carrier.

Is your training up to date?

Or are you setting yourself up for failure?

I talked to firearms expert EJ Owens about this issue, and here is a summary of what he had to say to me.

Are You FAILING At Your Tactical Gun Training?

The thing to remember is that your gun training does NOT stop at getting your CCW permit.

The training you’ll go through to get a permit is basic-level stuff at BEST.

Some states don’t do much more than give you safety advice, while others don’t require a training component at all.

You owe it to yourself to get proper, modern, up-to-date tactical gun training.

It could save your life and the lives of your family members.

Here are three tips to prevent you from failing in your training:

1. Your Training Doesn’t Have To Happen Overnight

How long do you think your training should take?

It’s more than a couple of weekends plinking away with your new pistol.

An expert requires 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert.

Most gun owners never shoot even 3,000 rounds of ammo over the lifetime of their gun.

You’ll have to spend a lot of weeks, months, and even years putting in the hours of dry fire, live fire, force-on-force training, and so on, to become truly well trained.

It’s worth it because it could save your life and the lives of your family members.

It just takes time.

The good news is, you don’t have to do it right away.

You can put the time in by making it part of your lifestyle.

Put in the time and you’ll reap the benefits… but don’t expect it to happen instantaneously.

2.Training Evolves

Let’s say that ten or twenty years ago, you used to do a LOT of firearms training.

Then you fell out of the habit.

Still think what you do is accurate, correct, and up to date?

Of course it isn’t.

What was considered “correct” years ago may be considered incorrect now.

Remember the largely discredited “speed rock” technique?

Nobody does it anymore… but some years back, it was considered a valid CQC method.

You have to put in the time to get your training up to date because some of what you are taught will eventually be replaced by better methods.

If you’re still doing things the way they did them ten years ago, it may be time to upgrade.

3. Many People Lack Low-Light Training

Many altercations happen in low light conditions.

If you’re not getting training to shoot when it’s dark, you’re failing.

Do you want to fail to hit a target before it hits you because you couldn’t see it?

Worse, do you want to shoot an innocent because you couldn’t see that he or she was not the threat?

Make sure you acquire low light skills BEFORE you need them.

Gun training is a life and death matter.

You can’t afford to just get your CCW and consider yourself done!

What these three things have in common is that they’re all lifestyle related.

CCW and training for CQC gunfighting should become part of your daily life.

Invest the time and the training for the best results.
