In this video, Instructor Zero details why simply “checking left and right” in a methodical fashion is only a range drill and not adequate in a reality contest. While some may argue that routinely scanning after each discharge builds muscle memory that breaks tunnel vision, this has not proven to be the case under stress in real life deadly force encounters. In fact, Instructor Zero argues that it is a waste of time to do this each and every time during training as it wastes valuable time and energy in a training regiment where individual skills are trained.

In firearms training, scanning your environment immediately after a shooting has gone the way of the office “how ya doin?” We do it instinctively without giving it much thought and we do it without meaning. While muscle memory has its benefits in certain aspects of training, building incorrect muscle memory can be a disservice to progress.

As an example, when you are at the range working on your extraction, it detracts from the technical learning process. When working on accuracy, it becomes a monotonous futile exercise that serves no real purpose when sh!t hits the fan.

What are your thoughts on this? As with everything Instructor Zero teaches, this is only an option. The validity of which solely rests upon its validation and logical application on the basis of YOUR personal experiences.

This video is composed of training drills and tactics extracted from upcoming full episodes. These actions are only part of a bigger group of lessons. Please do not try anything you see here at home or at the range without the supervision of a qualified instructor.

Zero demonstrates that with the enough ammo and experience you can accurately provide suppressing fire with a secondary weapon at long range, if you are forced into that situation. This video is not saying that a hand gun should be used as a primary weapon to engage targets at range, but if you are desperate, this video proves that a pistol is not COMPLETELY useless.

Less than 40 rounds were fired to achieve 3 hits on a figure 11 target at 300 meters. The entire shoot was completed in 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Train as you fight.  Zero demonstrates stress inducing range drills designed to increase heart rate, restrict blood flow, and manage pain.
