Defense Tactical Performance Center – Stance Recoil Staff November 7, 2016 Join the Conversation The Tactical Performance Center is located in St. George, Utah. Soon some of our editorial staff will be too. Thanks to PROOF Research, our lads will be enjoying a 3-day “3 Gun Boot Camp” with Brian Wilson(@brian_nelson_practical_shooter) and the TPC staff. TPC was founded by Ron Avery (@ron.avery.official) and offers a wide variety of classes for armed professionals, armed citizens, and recreational shooters alike. TPC is just a couple hours north of Las Vegas, putting it in range of you “training vacationers.” For those of who aren't in driving distance, the facility offers a training blog (the Dump Pouch) and a recurring video series narrated by members of their crew. Like so. “In shooting, your platform is your suspension and your grip is the tires on your car. If you wish to be an efficient shooter, then you need to learn more about driving your gun. There are three major forces at work when shooting: gravity, momentum, and recoil. Gravity is a constant. Regardless of whether you are standing still, running, dodging, ducking or weaving , gravity is working on you–no matter how stressful the situation. When you are moving, up, down, forward, backwards and/or sideways, momentum comes into play. Recoil energy comes into play when firing the weapon. How you interact with these three forces will determine how efficient you will be and, ultimately, how well you can shoot–in a gunfight or otherwise. Learning how to gunfight means starting with the basics and working from there. If you can’t shoot well when standing still, then things aren’t likely to improve when you ‘go dynamic.'” Ron Avery Tactical Performance Center – Stance More to follow.
