“The Derp” June 6th, 2017

The Derp is strong with a particular “Gun Pretender” who claims to be a big-time firearms instructor and self-defense trainer on Facebook today. Oops, isn’t that every day on Facebook?

Note to Mr. Gun Pretender, Position SUL was created by Max Joseph of TFTT Direct Action Group for a very specific reason, so you need to teach it in context and properly, or don’t call it Position SUL. Additionally give credit where credit is due, otherwise you are just a garden variety Douchebag who is full of Derp and steals stuff never giving proper credit to the TTP’s developed by people like Max Joseph who has been in this industry for over three decades. These folks are much smarter than you, and yes, they deserve the credit.

As you can tell I am not tolerating “The Derp” from “Instructor Douchebag” very well today, and I will call him and anyone else out on their B.S. every single time, try me. If you have ever trained with me, I give proper credit to whomever I learn something from and I teach it properly. If the person I learned something from gives me proper context of where they learned it and who from, I do the same. It’s called integrity, get you some.

Seriously, people work for decades in this industry to have “Gun Pretenders” and mealy mouthed Douchbags steal stuff and teach their TTP’s out of context and worse, rename them, e.g., “The 21 foot Rule.” It’s laughable to those of us who work hard and give proper training and not just the half-baked “CCW Courses” that are a staple in the industry.

A friend of mine in Carson City, Nevada says that 97% of the NRA Certified Instructors out there should not be doing NON-NRA Approved courses because they have no training over and above the NRA Pistol Instructor rating they have after spending sixteen (16) hours in a classroom (Now twenty-four (24) hours plus some self-learning modules online). Brannon LeBouef from NOLATAC Training and Consulting knocks it out of the park here in this video. (Staying In Your Lane)

Nearly every day, professional firearms instructors end up unwinding the bad programming that you put into practice in post license training that YOUR students seek with us. Yeah, you don’t know what you don’t know Gun Pretenders.

So, you want to know about bad TTP’s, ask me about all of the “Inertia Reloads” I observed this past weekend. Someone is going to have to correct these things through repetitive training, guess who will need to do that, me. Only professional firearms and self-defense instructors will understand exactly what I am talking about here.

In summary, choose your firearms and self-defense instructor wisely. If they cannot give you context of where they learned a specific TTP, you need to run the other direction, seriously, they were probably trained by the cadre of big-time instructors on YouTube.

Until next time …

Live life abundantly!

Stay Safe & Train Hard!
