Combative Pistol Part 3
#Personal Defense #Combatives #Shooting
In the previous articles in this series, we have gone over the integration of a combative draw stroke with pistol use. The pistol is traditionally used with our target at distance but most violent encounters are unforgiving and chaotic. Therefore, we should understand how to utilize the pistol in a combative sense where we may not have the benefit of distance and need to create it, or we are forced to compress the gun due to situational or environmental hazards. This final installment will go over effective integration of off-hand fending techniques and the often omitted concept of safe re-holstering. As with my previous articles, the following information is credited to Craig Douglas and his efforts with Shivworks, the Shivworks Cartel, and my personal experience teaching these concepts to my students.
