Combat Focus Shooting Skills & Drills

An intoduction to some of the drills from the Combat Focus Shooting Program.

Combat Focus is an intuitive shooting program designed to help the student become a more efficient shooter in the context of a dynamic critical incident.

That definition sure sounds sexy, but let's explore its meaning.

INTUITIVE, from a physiological perspective, is something that works well with what the body does naturally.

EFFICENCY, allows us to achieve our goal with the least amount of time, energy, and effort. Note that efficiency includes effectiveness (achieving our goal) in its definition.

A DYNAMIC CRITICAL INCIDENT is any sudden or surprising chaotic event that presents us with physical violence or the threat of physical violence.

Non-Diagnostic Linear Malfunction Drill

The Non-diagnostic Linear Malfunction Drill is designed to empower students to solve problems most commonly encountered with a semi-automatic pistol as efficiently as possible in the context of a fight. Here, students are running a drill blinded in order to gain confidence in the methodology and their own ability to work through the problem without looking at the gun... in the dark, in a fight, etc.. The NDLMD allows a student to solve or identify the problems based on probability and limited cognitive processing.

Of course, these students had demonstrated competency in the physical skills prior to this drill and they each have their own safety spotter in addition to the lead instructor positioned between them.

This was taped during a Combat Focus Shooting & Adv. Pistol Handling course in May 2010.

The NDLMD is:
-Complex Reload (Rip (or Lock & Remove), Clear, Reload)
