Jeff Anderson invited me to be the guest speaker of Modern Combat & Survival podcast’s 176th episode. We discussed the importance of using both eyes in a real gunfight. Shooting with your one eye closed will get you or someone else killed in a real life and death situation. You need both eyes to focus
I had the opportunity to join Barbara Baird of Women’s Outdoor News and Carrie Lightfoot of NRA Women in the 83rd episode of The Woman’s Gun Show. We talked about how to get the best vision possible for shooting. I shared some amazing eye exercises that you can do at home to improve your front
One of the most important skills to learn for any “non-range” shooting situation is how to shoot with both eyes open. You want to take in as much visual information as possible. If you look like Cyclops when you shoot, these simple drills will having you quickly seeing just one sight post while also seeing the whole battlefield.
No Matter Your Age Okay, you might have seen the “Vision and Aging” series and figured it was for old folks. To some extent, you were probably correct. Maybe you read them, and believe those vision problems are still decades away. Or perhaps you’ve begun to notice some of the problems covered in the articles. You
Right after the invention of rifling, sight alignment is the most important contribution to man to fire an accurate shot. Sight alignment and sight picture are two terms that are often used interchangeably and many times used as one and the same. It’s fine to put them together once they are both understood, but it is vital to know that they are two different and vary distinct things. Sight alignment has nothing to do with the target (well, besides hitting it) and I will be covering this relationship in the upcoming, The Fourth Habit of Highly Effective Shooters.
Learning to shoot with both eyes open can be a bit challenging. The main reason is that it’s hard to describe exactly what you’re supposed to see when you do it. Because I talk about shooting with both eyes open a lot, I get lots questions on how to do it. So i created a video to not just tell you, but show you what I see when I shoot with both eyes open
Use Your Sights! It may sound too simple; too easy to be true! Can it really be? Yes, boys and girls, with our patented new shooting technique you too can hit targets with a zillion percent more accuracy! What’s that? Not new? Damn, I thought I was going to be rich! OK, cowboys, I’m going
USING A TACTICAL FLASHLIGHT Firearms are without a doubt the most essential tools in a tactical operator’s inventory. But we have so many other tools in our kits that we use on a daily basis, and in my point of view and experience, lighting systems are critical items everyone needs to have, know how to
In part one of this two-part series on shooting vision, I talked about the optical correction of shooting-related vision problems that show up with “the passage of time” (my euphemism for getting older.) Now we’re going to look at some of the changes that the eye itself undergoes with, well, the passage of time. This
When I first heard of Chris Sajnog and saw his video about vision and shooting in which he showed a Brock String, I knew I had to get involved. Although I’m a relatively new shooter (only about three years and limited mostly to target air rifle indoors), I’ve been a practicing optometrist for about thirty-four
Is your hand shaking when you’re holding your gun? There are many things that come into play, things that don’t
I came up with SMART emergency medicine, which stands for Scene safe, Massive bleeding, Airway, Reassess, and then Transport. SMART
A lot of people will tell you that flinching slightly when firing your pistol is a natural response to a
