Aside from pistol shooting and competing in practical shooting competitions, are you guys training in hand to hand combat as well? what martial art are you into? I believe that being adept in both shooting and hand to hand combat is essential in being complete when it comes to self-defense. There are times when your pistol is not around and you need to do some striking and some grappling. I therefore began to study and learn the art of Gracie jiujitsu which helped me in so many ways like losing weight, being fit, improve my stamina even when im already old (34), and keeps me focused in everything i do. Its an exciting sport and highly technical.
