The Iron Cross

Last night I watched SWAT magazine and Rob Pincus go through Dave Harrington's Iron Cross exercise.

I thought it was a good interesting exercise for any of you who wish to research it.

But the most enlightening part was the description of what was the difference between training and practice.

For you see, so many people I know complain that the seminars I go to are too short, that you can't learn it all in that much time. They mistake training for practice!

I know exactly what you mean...
You can go to a 3 week seminar, but those skills will be gone if you don't practice them.

I had the opportunity to train with Dave here in my hometown. We did that Iron Cross both seated and standing - it was a dam good excercise.

Dave is known for agressive training, this was a really good excerise, BUT, you first should be familiar and practiced with weak hand shooting and crossovers and weak hand reloading before attempting this.
