Next time you are at the range I want you to drop and give me 20 before firing down range! No I am not your drill sergeant here to torment you. I am getting you prepared for reality. When have you ever seen or heard of anyone being calm in the middle of a shootout? Whose heart isn’t pounding out there chest while the beads of sweat form over there eye brows? Training should simulate as closely as possible the situation you may be in when you have to use a gun. If you wear glasses, try firing without them (be safe when attempting to do so). Run in place for a minute before grabbing your gun and taking aim. Attempt to get your breathing under control as quickly as possible. Focus your mind on your heart beating and regulating your breath. If you can’t do this you better hope you find yourself in a fire fight while laying on the couch or sitting at the table. If you are not prepared for any situation you need to start conditioning yourself today. Running daily, sit-ups, pushups and pull ups are some great simple things you can do to start conditioning your body for just about any situation you may find yourself in.
