TAKE YOUR TRAINING TO THE NEXT LEVEL
People frequently tell me that it is very difficult to get to the range do to their busy schedules and so they ask me if there is anything they can do away from the range to help them shoot better at the range or become better combat shooters for real life situations.
Also, I commonly get told that the importance of dry fire and other non-range training is understood, but it simply isn't interesting enough to WANT to do day in and day out. Fortunately, I have the solution to your problems BELOW.
YOU MUST understand that how and what you train OFF the range is far more important than how you train ON the range. The good news is that your training really comes down to just a few essentials, which can be done in a very fun and engaging way (away from the range), that can take your shooting to the next level.
The items below are things that I personally use right now (after 15+ years of experiments and trying all kinds of stuff) and what I recommend to anyone who wants to improve their shooting and self-defense.
BONUS: Some of the tools are downright fun!
Don’t feel like you need to get each item right away, but I’m sure you’ll be adding more as you see the positive results!

This laser targer system makes a great addition to the SIRT pistol. When you hit the target with a laser trainer like SIRT, it will tell you how accurate you shoot and how fast you shoot. The target records your shots and displays them in the order they were shot. The 62 LEDs will light up showing your exact group of shots. The shots are lit up in the order they were fired. Ready, Draw, Fire! The shot timer will give you a few seconds to get ready then it starts the timer. When the target is hit, the timer is stopped and the time is shown.

There are ton of sports related articles regarding this high tech eyewear. Check them out HERE.
Legal and Life Saving
US Law Shield Membership - Legal protection for self-defense actions
CAT Combat Application Tourniquet - GEN 7
The patented C-A-T is a one-handed tourniquet. Tests proved that the C-A-T completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage. The C-A-T utilizes a durable windlass system with a patented free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The C-A-T's unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.
