Guns-Hitler - The Dollar Vigilante

3 Gun Fun plus Quick Draw for Self Defense with a bonus blooper

My son is practicing his “directing” and video production, so we decided to film our range time. Even though I am a hand to hand expert, if I can get to a “Tool Extender” (gun, knife, bat) I am going to use it to save my life or the lives of others.

In this video I am practicing doing “3 Gun” shooting. Basically 3 Gun uses an AR-15 Rifle, Full Size Handgun and a Tactical Shotgun (usually with high end optics). In this video I use my Ruger 10/22 rifle, my Compact Glock 23 handgun and a Beretta shotgun designed for skeet shooting. It was a lot of fun. You will also see my youngest son use the same .22 rifle, and his Walther P22 handgun, but didn’t want to shoot the .12 guage shotgun, so we exchanged the camera and I finished the round.

The next part of the video, I am practicing my quick draw for self defense. In my opinion, whoever gets lead on their target first has the best chance of surviving a life & death situation.

Then at the very end I show a funny moment.

Another B.E.T. Testimonial

So here’s the biggest difference between Krav Maga/ Israeli Combat system and your system….they teach to hurt and get away. That doesn’t work when your with your kids and wife. In one of your videos, you stated this and it really clicked.
Your system and TFT are the only systems that shut that human piece of garbage down. I agree, there is nothing better. The more I watch, the more I practice, the more I get it and the more I realize how flawed all the other systems are.


Self Defense Tactical Shooting by Paterson Tactical Consulting

My wife (Dr. Lisa), our friend Dr. Murray and I just finished a 6 hour Self Defense Tactical Shooting course by Rick Paterson of Paterson Tactical Consulting, Parker, AZ. It was great. My wife had never received professional firearm training until now. I am happy to say that I think she is finally a gun enthusiast like myself. Yes, of course, I am an expert in hand to hand training, but I would never pass up a chance for a “tool extender” such as a gun, knife or bat to help finish the job.

We learned so many things today including, safety, tactical & speed reloads, movement drills, drills and when the sun finally went down, we practiced night shooting and flashlight shooting. We also did a bunch of close quarters shooting as you can see in the video. I would like to say thanks to Rick Paterson and Paterson Tactical Consulting for putting together such a great training program and traveling to Lake Havasu just for us.

*100% Money Back Guarantee!

Don’t let your night of fun ruin your whole day! Spray On – Rub In – Get Relief.

How many people love to drink? Now, how many people love the hangover you get afterwards? No one, right. I have come up with a solution to this problem. Dr. Jason Burke, M.D., (an anesthesiologist who has treated over 20,000 hangovers.) has figured out that hangovers are caused by:

• Mineral depletion
• Inflammation/oxidative stress (lack of antioxidants)
• Toxins
• Low sugar (drink orange juice in the morning)
• Dehydration (drink water before going to bed, in the morning and throughout the day)

Now with my product I have solved this issue by replenishing vital minerals & antioxidants (electrolytes) while helping remove toxins from your liver. Coach David’s All-Natural Hangover Recovery Spray Plus Liver Protection™ is specifically formulated to deliver vital minerals, antioxidants & liver detoxifiers through the skin (the bodies largest organ), bypassing the gastrointestinal tract for convenient, rapid absorption into the cells helping you recover super-fast while protecting your liver from toxins.

My product is super easy to use. Just spray and massage in a few squirts on your forehead, back of neck, chest and arms to absorb the finest minerals, antioxidants and liver protection ingredients in the world (we get our ingredients from the best natural sources in the world).

Why do I spray it on my skin? Your skin is your bodies largest organ and whatever you put on your skin gets absorbed into the cells. Transdermal application is designed to deliver minerals through the skin, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract for convenient, rapid absorption into the cells.

B.E.T. Shotgun

If you are serious about your self-protection, if you want to have a fighting chance in the case of the worst real life SHTF scenario, then you owe it to yourself and to your family and friends to take this course. That’s how good this is. I already bought DVD from Coach David Alexander couple of years ago, but editing in this course is worth watching it again. By the way, don’t forget to do your homework 😉 (you’ll know what I’m talking about once you finish the course)  Hrvoje L.

New 5-Star testimonials for Self Defense Made Real Easy

‘Tools’ that work – Outstanding!

“Coach Alexander will groom you into that mindset by teaching you the appropriate skills to attack the right targets. This is easy stuff to learn unlike other martial arts that take years to learn. Many marital arts schools have a tendency to trade techniques for money. However, with Coach Alexander you don’t have to know how a television set works to turn one on and watch it. This system is not a martial art or sport fighting. It’s not mystical and it’s not selling you tricks for more money to acquire belt after belt. Coach Alexander’s simple techniques are brutal and undiluted nasty. This “Target System” is stark reality and it will be a grim dose of reality for any martial art unwise enough to challenge it. No tapping out. No saved by the bell. No calendar girls. A lesson for all martial artists to be brought back to reality! I cannot recommend this training enough. However, if you are looking to learn martial arts or sports fighting then this lesson isn’t for you.”  Jaimie

Great course!

“This is a great course and similar to Target Focus Training by Tim Larkin, except it uses only 3 targets making it easier to remember and apply to any violent situation.” John A.

Little Victories: Lessons in Mental Preparedness from SERE School

“Success is made of small victories.”

Good Day to you, ReadyNutrition Readers.  This segment deals with a topic I label as “The Little Victory.”   It is a concept I learned when I went through SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) training at Ft. Bragg, NC.  If you can pick up this concept, it is something that will help you to mentally and emotionally deal with the adversities you will deal with when faced with a large-scale disaster, a survival scenario, or when the SHTF and the bottom drops out.  This concept was taught to us in the classroom prior to our entering the RTF (Resistance Training Facility) and “serving” as POW’s (in a controlled environment), the focal task of the school.

It’s All In the Mindset

The Little Victory, we were taught, is something that you need to help keep your head when everything is going wrong around you.  What it means is to (in the manner of a Positive Mental Attitude, or PMA) focus on the positive things you accomplish, no matter how small they may be.  Such “victories” buoy you through the tough times.  You will find that when you apply this concept that you already have, but probably haven’t thought about it before.

Remember when you played on a sports team in high school or college?  You and your teammates blew a game, and the next day (or that night after the game) the coach had you run laps and PT’d (physical training) you until you were all half dead?  It was terrible, but the camaraderie came to you and your teammates and you all looked at what you endured as a “badge of suffering.”  Somehow you made it through.  Somehow you managed to focus on the overall problem of what you did wrong: missed blocks, missed tackles, whatever the deficiency was.  You made it through the coach’s “torture session” and it followed Friedrich Nietzsche’s phrase:

            That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

Fast-forward to SERE.  There were rules that you could not know, because the rules kept changing all of the time… you were eating starvation rations…. a handful of rice with some sardines, served to you in both of your hands, no bowl.  You learned to think fast, to think on your feet.  On one occasion after everybody was served, the pot was unguarded for an instant, and I snuck my hand in, quick as a snake, and grabbed an extra handful.

That is a Little Victory.

In my own fatigued mind, it gave me an edge: the “guards” were not infallible, and I managed a small triumph at being able to “kife” some extra food, with no penalty to me or to my brothers.  In combat you must think on your feet, and this was no different: theoretical instruction only works to a point, and “street smarts” coupled with audacity has to kick in.

One of the things they did was to put us in a box…very, very small so we had to draw our knees up to our chest and we were kept that way for a very long time.  Every 15 minutes, a guard would come by and rap the side of the box with a nightstick, sounding off with “No sleeping in there!”  I (as well as others) still managed to grab batches of sleep, 10 minutes at a time.  Little Victories.  It was not just the sleep that helped you; it was the fact that you managed to do it.

Little Victories Boost Morale

In order to survive through bad or hellish times, you must use this technique (all based on PMA) to steady you and give your mind a triumph in the face of adversity.  How can you translate something such as this into what you potentially face?  Say your house is destroyed in a hurricane (may God forbid it).  Rather than lament what has happened and allow your brain to be paralyzed into inactivity, it is best to gather and salvage what food and supplies you can.  In the end of the gathering, you’ll have a large pile of goods…something tangible that you can all see.

This is a Little Victory.  You lost most of it, but still managed to save some!  PMA is contagious, and when your family sees you are trying to hold onto it they will follow suit.  Talk about it!  Congratulate one another!  It is a great morale builder, and morale is critical for you when the times are tough.  Morale will help you get through the tough times, and later it will be something very important when you gain the Small Victory:

The tragedy you pass through as a family is a shared tragedy, and by getting through it you have built cohesion with a shared experience: a group triumph.

We can’t win every battle and come out on top; however, we can reduce the amount of the pain and suffering by toughening ourselves mentally.  This is one of the ways the human race has survived…as individuals and as a group.  We must use that most powerful tool that we have…our mind…and couple it with our hearts and the resolve to win.  The Little Victories can take the sting out of the major losses and give us the edge we need to go on.  In this way, we may lose the game Friday night under the lights, but we’re still standing, and we will have another day to come out and have a shot at winning.  Take the Little Victories one day at a time, and you can make it through as an individual and together, as a family.  Be good to one another, and have a great day!

Body weight versus weight training for strength? from Ask Coach David

nmr20067 asks:  What are feelings on bodyweight exercises to get stronger, mainly for people that may not have access to weights everyday. Or is weights lifting 1st now and just do what I can to find access, and bodyweight exercises are only secondary.

My answer:

+nmr20067 I think lifting weights would be #1 but there are many strong people in this world who got there doing just body weight movements. You just have to keep one thing in mind as that is “specific adaptation to imposed demand” which means you have to do a little more in each exercise, body weight or weight training session than you did prior. That is the only way to get stronger over time. That is why I like weight training, because you can add a couple pounds to each session over years and you will get stronger as long as your nutrition, stress, and sleep is under control. Thanks, Coach David
