$49.95 for four DVDs? Sounds like a really good price compared to other instructional videos... tactical response's fighting pistol, for instance, is double the price.

and thier fighting rifle dvd is high as heck too. i have seen all of the above, and own most of them the magpul are better qaulity more info and priced right! the only video that i thin is a must have from tactical response is "shooting missology" it could have been better quality wise, and it ended a little to soon, but it is full of good info.

i have trained at tactical response, i would rather spend the money on a course, then but thier fighting pistol and rifle vids.

The carbine series is great.

I'm really looking forward to this new handgun series. I wish I had the $$ to take the classes in person!

i like magpul products, but no to this. massad ayoob had the essentials down 25 years ago. alternative cocking techniques, ninja ground rolls, extended mags, no thanks. buy ammo, take a class and go shoot.

I got the DVD and gee there's still a lot of things to learn there even you are already shooting for a while. some of the operators there are marines, SWAT training officers and the red head is college student here in Geargia State University (she started not good but after a while i think she now has better fundamentals than me). It changed my view on how i will practice in IDPA and really how to operate tactically. For example I would discipline myself to power rack my 1911 slide everytime now even on admin reloads vs slide lock release which i've always used.

Question to you folks. I already have the tactical carbine 2. Is it still really adviceable to get the tactical carbine 1? (I already attended tactical carbine classes).

Good Video, One thing though. It really burns me up to see someone turning a gun sight sideways:banghead: I guess if a perp is 5 feet from you it would work. But if they are 20 feet away you aint putting any lead on the target, seems like a good way to run out of ammo before the job is done to me.

Sounds like you could benefit from the "Shooting Missology" DVD Yeager made. Great video, you will learn a lot and will shoot better after.

I'd also like to add, one of the classes I took actually introduced this concept to us with the gun naturally tilting inward when shooting one handed. Guess what, if you use your sights correctly and press the trigger correctly you will shoot every bit as good compared to having the gun straight up and down. If you don't, it's not the gun, it's the shooter!

I can't vouch for this set of videos, but their tactical carbine videos were excellent. Not only did you get the eye candy of them running the class and the lecture, but they also provided a set of drills done at real speed and slow speed that can help you break down your actions into component motions. Not a substitute for live instruction, but very useful nonetheless.

I imagine this DVD set is about the same.

I have had the Dynamic Handgun DVDs for about 2 weeks now. It was well worth the money IMO.
Everything is presented well and easy to understand. I have watched the DVD set a few times and have been applying some what they teach while I am at the range, so far it has worked out well. Haley and Costa are excellent instructors and they work well together.


Yes....the Red Head is HOT !

he has no where near the real world experience of these guys. also ever heard of dogmatic doctrine? it is a very real thing, and that is a prime example. so you are saying that we should be doing the same thing that was figured out 25 years ago, even if there is a possibility that there is something out there that might make you more lethal? that is absolutly crazy to me. no thanks i will continue to train, and go outside of the realm of the "old school" guys.

incorrect, have you ever tried this, and know why it is done? sitting at your computer throw a punch (a jab) with it extended look at your hand and arm, is it straight up and down? no, it is canted inward, which is a natural thing, working with what the body does naturally. i agree you would bennifet from shooting missology. i have it though i didn't need it to know that i could shoot just as accuatly that way, i have been training in that technique for years.

all you need to hit a target is sight picture and a smooth triiger pull to the rear. it dosen't matter if you are upside down, you are right side up and the gun is up side down, if you are using a mirror to shoot over your shoulder, you are using an ink pen to pull the trigger, if you are shooting bent over between your legs, etc. sights and trigger that is all it comes down to. you should check out the video, it will open your eyes.

If this is anything like their carbine series, I'll be picking it up. My cousin has taken one of their classes, and has had nothing but positive things to say about what he got from it.

And there's a few comments in this thread that raise a few eyebrows for me. Come on people. Watch and listen to what they have to say. Don't just take one person's view, and then close your ears off to everything else. Both of them have a great deal of real-world experience, as well as many classes under their belts. They know how to shoot on square ranges as well as in the ****, and they are skilled at conveying their knowledge to students willing to learn.

Their Art of the Tactical Carbine is proof that these guys KNOW how get lead on target in a variety of situations, not just standing at the firing line. And if any of us will ever be in a situation to use our handguns and/or carbines, the likelihood of conditions being ideal is very low. This is why there's a shift to train in all of these "strange" positions using "strange" techniques.

Is it possible that you may have to manipulate your rifle/handgun with only one hand? Is it possible that you may have to take cover, and wish to return fire without exposing an unnecessarily large portion of your body? Of course it is. But, if you view wanting to train in such things as being " too tacticool" or "ninja", then I guess it's just not for you.

The way I see it, we as gun owners (especially those of us who carry) deal in the world of possibilities. I mean, in all likelihood (and hopefully), we will never have to fire a round to protect ourselves and others. But, do we just buy a gun, load it up with ammo, and then tuck it away, never to use it until the time approaches? Or do we practice, and become proficient with it? Why must we stop this training once we are able just get rounds on target at the local range, or be able to draw it quickly?

I think it's a shame that techniques going beyond the aforementioned are developing a stigma amongst some in the gun community. I might be overkill, I hate to use this word when it comes to training, for most of use not in LE or Military, but it is most certainly is NOT a detriment. Maybe to our wallets, but I think most here already have well over 1K tied up in firearms, ammo, optics, holsters, accessories, etc.

I highly recommend this DVD set. There is a lot of information in it. One would be well served to pick it up and ingrain what is taught through study, practice and repetition. The production quality is very high as well. At $49.99 I view it as an incredible value.

When shooting one-handed, your hand naturally turns slightly.

(Yawn) :rolleyes: All the stuff I was doing back in the mid-1970's. (boring!)

Nah, just kidding. I'm a little too old and too big to do some of that stuff anymore, but it looks like some good stuff for the younger generation to learn.

The Doc is out now. :cool:
