First vs. Third Person

first

When using the terms first vs. third person you can automatically remember some of what you learned in high school literature class. But here, the context is more direct. Will you save yourself? Or will you wait for someone to save you? Circumstances call for different responses but have you considered what tools you will need, beyond resolve, to help yourself in any situation? Weapons training at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy is one ingredient in your plan for salvation that starts with taking a first person role in your own defense.

How will you respond?

The training you will receive at TPA in the use of a pistol, bolt action rifle, combat shotgun, or M4 carbine gives you the mental and physical tools you need to solve many of the problems you face from an attacker. Part of this training involves grooming the shooter’s mindset to pursue a positive self-preservation interest to drive their dedication to training and individual practice. Believe it or not, some mindsets you will find in the wild rely heavily on third party pressure to bring relief to an assaulted party. You have to face the fact that some people will not act even to save their own lives. But you can be different. Train at TPA in any of the weapon disciplines and sleep better at night knowing you will be an immediate responder and not have to wait for the first responders to arrive.

What is good equipment?

equipment

There is no shortage of vendors for firearms, firearm accessories, and supplemental gear all touted as giving you the “edge” in your shooting endeavor. Do you want to shoot faster? Then someone has a trigger kit to sell you. Do you want to shoot more accurately? Someone has a new optic or set of sights to sell you. Want to run faster, jump higher, or stretch farther? Then someone has a pair of pants, a shirt, tactical socks, sunglasses, ball cap, and probably tactical boots to sell. Clearly, American capitalism gives us all a chance to make a buck and that’s amazing. But as a shooter, it’s important not to confuse having increased your shooting abilities by spending to increase the quantity or quality of your gear.

The shooter shoots

But what is good equipment? For over 30 years, Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy has been a shooting laboratory, and its instructors shooting researchers who are masters in their field. In that time the data shows that good equipment is gear that gets out of the shooter’s way so their firing stroke can progress uninterrupted. The preferred handgun at TPA is the Glock 19, for no other reason than it is an uncomplicated handgun with no extra buttons that get in the way. For the bolt rifle, we like to see large target turrets with the numbers printed on the exterior so a student doesn’t have to break their hold to make elevation and windage adjustment. New students are encouraged to come as they are, and if they do not have a firearm one is available from the school in a configuration that makes learning the firing stroke for a given weapon system easy to obtain because the gun isn’t getting in the way. The key to remember is that good shooting comes from the shooter, not the firearm.

Your Critical Moment

critical

In every great story throughout history, there is an event that is recorded as a critical moment. Somewhere in the unfolding of events, a critical moment had to be met that would, in turn, create a cascade of actions that would become legend. At these critical junctures, heroes or tragedies are born. An example would be David & Goliath. Goliath was a warrior unrivaled on the battlefield…until he met David. David was a Nobody until he killed Goliath. Although your life may not be recorded for the ages, your life will be replete with critical moments and critical choices. For instance, you must choose to take firearm training if you have any hope of proficiency.

Critical Choices

When you choose to take firearms training you are making a decision that can reward you over a lifetime. If you choose to gain proficiency in the bolt rifle, combat shotgun, handgun or M4 carbine you will be rewarded with a skill that could save your life. Training at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy offers you the opportunity to gain a skill that will serve you in potentially your darkest hour. When you choose to use a firearm as part of your personal defense strategy, the rest of your life is on the line. Succeed and your life gets longer, fail and a tragedy may unfold that lasts a long time. Although Roman Emperor and Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius were quoted in saying “you may leave life at any moment…” attaining the skills you need for a proper defense is never a time that is wasted. Now you have the presence of mind to make a critical choice. Choose wisely.

Motivation vs. Discipline

discipline

discipline

Most modern self-help books, programs, and speakers traffic in the dark art of motivational speaking. Handing out a healthy dose of Ra-Ra-Ra-Sis-Boom-Bah to get people off their couch and out the door to exercise, eat right, do more work, or whatever is a multi-billion dollar industry. But whether the speeches or posters offer a dose of I’m ok-You’re ok, or a pat on the back masquerading as tough love, the input is still motivational speaking and the outcome is often less than hoped for – a flurry of activity that swiftly wanes once the real grind begins. The same happens in shooting. Whether the catalyst is a personal or 3rd person anecdote about a shooting, robbery or other incident people often run out, buy a gun, then get their license to carry. But after the memory begins to fade, the gun lands in the safe only to be thought of when the next story comes along. But is there a way to combat this ebb and flow of motivation and build something durable?

Shooting is a discipline

Whether you decide to shoot a handgun, bolt rifle, M4 carbine, or combat shotgun the training you receive at Texas Pistol and Rifle Academy is a shooting discipline. When someone is disciplined in a behavior, they will execute an action regardless of their internal or external environment. The training you receive at TPA is perfect for your shooting discipline as each training program offers a systematic and repeatable method of shooting a weapon. If you continue your practice of the methods you learn at TPA you will develop a shooting discipline that you can execute under the most austere condition. Imagine what your world would look like if no matter your mood or the weather, you practiced your shooting discipline.
