Last night, on the Outdoors Channel, one of the regular Wednesday programs called "The Best Defense" featured Rob Pincus, and introduced his concept and practice of his brainchild, "Combat Focus Shooting".
It was particularly interesting because the idea is to train in a way that uses known human reactions in a high stakes confrontation. Of course you have to have basic firearms skills, but beyond that, the training is human behavior oriented, based on detailed research into how people ACTUALLY responded in such critical situations.
It was interesting and informative. As he said--if it happens, you are not going to be facing some bad guy 30 feet in front of you on a range, surrounded by an earth berm. You are going to be in a 360 degree threat environment, that may be anything from very confined to very open.
I have practiced some fast movement, one-hand shooting similar to what he showed last night. It is difficult and somewhat dangerous, so if you are going to do it, start slow, and work up in speed.
You can google I.C.E shooting, to get more info about Rob's training programs.
