“We always get wrapped up around equipment and we want to point to equipment to say the reason why somebody can do something and why they can’t do something. We either use it as an excuse for why we can’t do something–because we don’t have the right equipment–or we use it as an excuse as to why somebody else can do something we can’t.” — Ernest Langdon
Ernest Langdon of Langdon Tactical Technology is here to talk about handgun skills, what it looks like and how to improve it. A large problem in individual skill assessment can often be the lack of knowing what a skilled shooter looks like. Ernest gives examples of metrics by which shooters may measure themselves for skill and common pitfalls individuals set up for themselves on their road to improvement. Langdon discusses when and how switching guns too often can inhibit a shooter’s growth and where true subconscious gun-handling can be found.
