High-Speed, Low-Drag vs. Practical Defensive Shooting

    I, like many readers, value my time as a competitive shooter as part of a regime of practice for home and personal defense. However, it does have its limits, as shown by Larry Vickers. In this ‘Self Defense Scenario with a Pistol” video, he showcases how a competitive shooter would tackle a course and how one should in a real defense scenario.

    Personally, I think Larry took it a bit slow, but was keen to notice he kept the handgun in a modified ready position while moving. This keeps it ready to deploy but also more controlled and does not risk exposing the defender prematurely during clearing.
