Does this chap look familiar? GTR member?

  1. I had a buddy send me the link below. He was interested in taking the companies course. It struck me that the fellow on the front page looked familiar - perhaps a GTR member but I can't place a name:

    This reminded me to haul that barca lounger out to the range. All that standing really gets to me.

    How do you explain to your squad sergeant that the bad guy got away 'cause you shot yourself while doing gymnastics like Kathy Rigby? :dunno:

    Do people really pay for this kind of training?

    Who the hell took this photograph, anyway?

    I'd feel ok taking photos like this with Stevie, because as long as you're standing directly in front of him, you're pretty safe, but it just seems a little sketchy.

    To be fair, we shoot a supine stage about once a year at IDPA matches. But we don't shoot between our legs.

    Now that I look closer I think the guy on the right grunted out a Tactical chili bomb and the fellow next to him had to turn away whilst battling the bad guys and struggling for oxygen. Gotta be careful of muzzle flash in that situation no Blue Dot for sure. I'd be requesting a new partner though.

    Ah, that's the problem... I'm a newb when it comes to things like that. Guns are dangerous, they scare me. :scared:

    While not the optimal shooting position, you had better know there is a possibility that you will get knocked down in a fight, the BG on top and able to get up quicker and ruin your day. You fight like you train. Fights are not planned events and there is no guarantee your opponent is not bigger stronger faster or just plain luckier than you. Granted I am not sure I wanna be shooting between my legs like the 1911 warrior on the right but that is the kind of stuff you may be forced to do in a real world encounter. :whistling:

    Actually I was referring to the guys doing the nifty little summersaults between shots. This may be the way it's done in real world situations, I wouldn't know. I'm sure I'd freeze if someone pointed a gun at me and start crying like a little girl. I'll leave the dangerous stuff to others... I'm a lover, not a fighter.

    A bad situation can always be made worse by shooting yourself in the leg.

    Yeah, those somersaults were crazy. Somebody posted a question about that, they came back with some crap.

    No WAY do I ever try that in a real gunfight. I might squat or something to give a different target, but not tumbling.

    Buncha ninja tacticool crap if you ask me.

    I wonder if that school is run by Gecko45. I hear he was a master at somersaulting while shooting. :whistling:

    We need to set up some targets on the side of a pool with a high dive.
