WYATT EARP: FRONTIER MARSHAL

Wyatt Earp
Wyatt Earp. 1848 – 1929
by Stuart N. Lake

“I was a fair hand with pistol, rifle, or shotgun, but I learned more about gunfighting from Tom Speer’s cronies during the summer of ’71 than I had dreamed was in the book. Those old-timers took their gunplay seriously, which was natural under the conditions in which they lived. Shooting, to them, was considerably more than aiming at a mark and pulling a trigger. Models of weapons, methods of wearing them, means of getting them into action and operating them, all to the one end of combining high speed with absolute accuracy, contributed to the frontiersman’s shooting skill. The sought-after degree of proficiency was that which could turn to most effective account the split-second between life and death. Hours upon hours of practice, and wide experience in actualities supported their arguments over style.

The most important lesson I learned from those proficient gunfighters was the winner of a gunplay usually was the man who took his time. The second was that, if I hoped to live long on the frontier, I would shun flashy trick-shooting—grandstand play—as I would poison.

When I say that I learned to take my time in a gunfight, I do not wish to be misunderstood, for the time to be taken was only that split fraction of a second that means the difference between deadly accuracy with a sixgun and a miss. It is hard to make this clear to a man who has never been in a gunfight. Perhaps I can best describe such time taking as going into action with the greatest speed of which a man’s muscles are capable, but mentally unflustered by an urge to hurry or the need for complicated nervous and muscular actions which trick-shooting involves. Mentally deliberate, but muscularly faster than thought, is what I mean.

In all my life as a frontier police officer, I did not know a really proficient gunfighter who had anything but contempt for the gun-fanner, or the man who literally shot from the hip. In later years I read a great deal about this type of gunplay, supposedly employed by men noted for skill with a forty-five.

From personal experience and numerous six-gun battles which I witnessed, I can only support the opinion advanced by the men who gave me my most valuable instruction in fast and accurate shooting, which was that the gun-fanner and hip-shooter stood small chance to live against a man who, as old Jack Gallagher always put it, took his time and pulled the trigger once.

5 LIES YOU MIGHT BELIEVE — Redhawk Firearm Training 10/20/2021

5 LIES YOU MIGHT BELIEVE — Redhawk Firearm Training

5 LIES YOU MIGHT BELIEVE

1. Standing still and shooting at static targets prepares me to defend myself.

Let’s be really, really clear on this. Standing still and shooting at static targets is fun. It’s a great way to start, and a useful method of checking fundamentals and equipment. It is not, however, a useful metric for preparedness to defend yourself. In a defensive encounter, the person(s) attacking you will certainly be in motion, and that changes… EVERYTHING.
Don’t fall victim to the lie that going to a gun range and putting rounds on paper in a sterile environment is actual training. Seek out courses beyond watching social media posts and videos. Get time in with your handgun under instruction and find out what you can and cannot do.

2. I can assume that the best possible scenarios will happen to me.

One of the things I see often as an instructor is that many people assume that on the worst day of their life, the best possible circumstances will unfurl in front of their eyes. I have actually heard students at the beginning of a course declare their confidence that the person attacking them will be unarmed. This is but one example of many ways that citizen defenders believe a lie that says that as an armed citizen, you will always have the upper hand. As a starting point, what would you do if your dominant hand were injured, bloodied, or being used to keep a loved one safe? Start there - and keep thinking.

3. My handgun is a magic wand.

Drawing a firearm can invite more conflict, stress, and sense of endangerment to bystanders, and to you as a defender. Being able to produce a firearm does not make you a wizard with a magic wand. Your firearm possesses zero magical abilities to control anyone’s behavior. The only factor that has the greatest chance of impacting the outcome of your defensive encounter is your mindset. Are you prepared with a plan? If that plan fails do you have another one?

4. I’ll have time to chamber a round.

I won’t waste much time on this, but chances are no, you will not. John Correia from Active Self Protection says it best - if you carry without a round in the chamber, you are choosing to start your defensive encounter with a malfunction clearance. Simply put, planning on having both the time AND the ability to chamber a round in time to defend yourself is putting yourself at risk.

5. The most important feature of a defensive handgun is being small for concealment.

Should you face a situation where you need your handgun, the moment you put into action, the only feature you will want is CAPABILITY. Sure, small size can make for easier concealment, but I strongly encourage you to consider that we don’t buy handguns to be able to conceal them. Rather, we conceal handguns so that we can use them to defend ourselves on the worst day of our lives. To be able to defend ourselves, we need to have tools that work best under less-than-ideal scenarios. A longer barrel means more accuracy and greater sight radius. A wider, longer grip can mean better control when our fine motor skills are diminished by stress. Instead of thinking about less capacity for concealment sake, try considering each round as another opportunity to defend yourself and those you love. Get the handgun you’d actually want to have with you to defend yourself, and then figure out a way to carry it. A great source for carry gear that I personally use is Tucker Gun Leather.

What are some of the other lies that you think folks believe about concealed carry? Leave a comment, and let’s talk more.

Are You Training For Fads, Fantasy Or A Fight? 10/16/2021

Are You Training For Fads, Fantasy Or A Fight?

ARE YOU TRAINING FOR FADS, FANTASY OR A FIGHT?

BY TOM GIVENS

If you’re worried about defending your family at the mall, do you really need to take a rifle class and wear a
chest rig? Or should you be concentrating on handgun basics? One is likely a vacation — the other will build
a solid foundation for daily protection.

When I first started training people as a side-line job in 1975, you could count on one hand the people who made a living providing defensive fi****ms training — outside of government and police academies. By the time I started training full time in 1996, the number had grown greatly. Now, there are scores of people teaching fi****ms use full time and a horde teaching on occasion. This expansion into what is now often called “the training industry” has brought quality fi****ms training within the reach of any serious student, anywhere in the US. Unfortunately, it has also brought a tidal wave of unqualified “instructors” into the mix, with all sorts of trademark gimmicks designed to lure in unknowing customers.

Many of these new trainers’ courses feature high round counts, lots of flashy movement drills, and “new and better” ways to run the handgun. The late Pat Rogers coined the term “edutainment” to describe this phenomenon. The late Louis Awerbuck called it “entertrainment.” Both refer to the practice of setting up courses to be fun, exciting and most importantly, different from everyone else’s. As my good friend, John Farnam, says, “When people show up for a pistol class, the first thing they want to know is when do we get to jump out of the flaming helicopters?” Sadly, this has very little to do with defending yourself effectively in the United States civil environment.

OPEN TO FINISH ARTICLE…

Are You Training For Fads, Fantasy Or A Fight? If you want to go to one of the fantasy camps, that’s fine. But chalk it up to your vacation account — not your training budget.

5 Must-Know Tips when Calling 911 10/12/2021

5 Must-Know Tips when Calling 911

I have kind of a weird question to ask you...

Have you ever “practiced” your 911 call?

I’m not asking if you’ve ever called them when it wasn’t an emergency...

But have you thought about what you would say, and what you would NOT say if you ever had to call 911 after a self-defense incident?

Let’s be honest, it’s not something most people think about.

Besides, the 911 operator is there to help you, right?

They’re your lifeline to help and support, right?

Well, maybe...

You see, every 911 call is recorded, and when adrenaline is pumping through your veins, there’s a good chance you could end up saying more than you should.

So, our advice: Call 911, tell them key pieces of information, and (although they tell you to stay on the line) HANG UP!

So, what are those "key" pieces of information?

Preparing for pistol qualification: Reducing anxiety and passing the test Follow these steps to calm your mind and increase your shooting confidence Oct 6, 2021

One of my favorite professional assignments was being a law enforcement fi****ms instructor. Occasionally I still pay my own way to instructor classes because I enjoy learning (and relearning). Also, occasionally I get an opportunity to work privately with a police officer who struggles to achieve qualified status. These good protectors often self-diagnose as someone who suffers from test anxiety.

This article summarizes some things I work on with them. If you experience anxiety associated with pistol qualification, I hope you extract some helpful tips.

If you confidently look forward to your next pistol qualification, this article isn’t for you.

Precision Police Pistol Shooting: Every Shot Counts 10/06/2021

Precision Police Pistol Shooting: Every Shot Counts

PRECISION POLICE PISTOL SHOOTING

BY MASSAD AYOOB
EXPERTS COP TALK
2021

Defensive police handgun fire sometimes has to be fast and furious … but sometimes, distance or limited threat exposure require precision.

The Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB) of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is justifiably considered one of the leading SWAT entities anywhere. Once, long ago, a senior SEB man was lecturing cops on deadly force and an officer in the audience asked, “Sir, when do we need to fire precision shots?”

The SEB man’s answer was legendary. He snapped, “Every shot fired by a police officer should be a precision shot!”

I’ve heard it said, “All the accuracy you need in the real world is a 6″ group at six feet.” I respectfully disagree with the statement. I was reminded of this recently when researching the 2015 Dannemora prison escape, in which it took precision shooting twice over to get the job done.

Data Study: 18 Months of Ammo Sales during a Pandemic, Protests, and the Biden Presidency

_____________

In our previous data study on the initial effects of the pandemic on our business, we outlined increased sales due to the public’s growing leeriness of COVID-19, starting from February 23, 2020, when the news coverage became ominous.

That’s only part of the story, however, because, over the last 18 months, we’ve experienced a particularly charged election year, BLM protests amid calls to “defund the police,” a contentious transfer of power, and most recently a surprise ban on popular Russian ammo.

These events, in particular, set against the backdrop of the ongoing response to the pandemic, resulted in demand spikes. Looking at the data below, you’ll get a sense of a high-level trend during the pandemic and then see how that trend changed during certain specified time periods, like the BLM protests, when already-elevated demand went up even more.

9 Signs You're Tactically Stupid - G*T Daily (Guns Ammo Tactical)

9 Signs You’re Tactically Stupid
By Travis Pike - September 22, 2021

One of the biggest cancers in society is Facebook, and this applies to the regular world as well as the gun world. In the gun world, Facebook groups tend to be garbage. There are good ones like Tactics & Applications, Concealed Nation Extra, and the numerous Primary and Secondary groups.

However, many are full of bad information, and people use their emotions and lack of training to guide their tactics and purchases. They then reinforce others with tactically stupid information.

I’ve seen themes of bad, tactically stupid advice permeate these pages. They seem to repeat these nine pieces of tactically stupid information over and over. So I’ve decided to gather them all together today to share with you. Maybe you’ll get a laugh, or maybe you’ll learn something.
