Mike Sisino: The Contiuum of Force – Make Good Decisions!

David and Mark are rejoined by Mike Sisino to talk about the Continuum of Force and, specifically, about making good decisions during a self-defense scenario all the way up to the point of having to pull the trigger on your gun.

As a backdrop to this conversation we also discuss the July 19, 2018 shooting in Clearwater, Florida of Markeis McGlockton by gunman Michael Drejka.

0025 Situational Awareness!

Situational Awareness!

Hot on the heels of Episode 24 with William Aprill, David and Mark are rejoined by their friend, previous show guest, Jordan Linscheid, and talk about Situational Awareness and Col. Cooper's Color Codes.  This is a subject that the guys have been giving a lot of serious thought to since the talk with Mr. Aprill and they dive in and peel back the layers of what it means to each of them.

Jordan is also freshly back from a tour of duty in Chiraq (Chicago, Illinois) and discusses how HE used situational awareness while traveling unarmed (because Chicago's government is coruppppppt) and how individual baselines affect a person's sensitivity to what is going on around them.

024 William Aprill of Aprill Risk Consulting on The UNTHINKABLE

William Aprill of Aprill Risk Consulting on The UNTHINKABLE

This might be our most important episode on mindset yet.  We sit down with renowned clinical expert on violent criminals, mental health professional William Aprill, and he explains why good people often fail to prepare adequately for encountering EVIL people by failing to understand them and what they are capable of doing.

William Aprill explains that violent criminals don't think like you, don't value the things you do, aren't motivated by what motivates you, and consequently aren't you.  Failing to recognize that ahead of time and preparing your response can mean injury or DEATH.

 

About William Aprill:

William Aprill is a licensed mental health professional with over 15 years experience across the continuum of care. He presently maintains a private practice and consultancy specializing in post-traumatic interventions and other disciplines.

William is a former deputy sheriff (Orleans Parish, LA, Criminal Sheriff’s Office) and Special Deputy US Marshal (Eastern District of Louisiana). He is a decorated competitive shooter and has taught civilian, law enforcement, and military personnel in various fighting skills since 1990.

William maintains an active schedule both as student and teacher, having been instructor-rated by several top-tier trainers and studying under many of the most influential members of the combative arts community.

Under the auspices of Aprill Risk Consulting, William has presented his material on violent criminals and their decision-making, defensive incident aftermath, mindset development and defensive preparedness locally and nationally, including at the Annual Conference  of the International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (IALEFI), Rangemaster Tactical Conference, Tactical Response Alumni Weekend, and at Paul-E-Palooza, the memorial conference and fundraiser for the family of the late Paul Gomez.

Let's Talk About Guns and Gear! And Bourbon Whiskey!

Do you like just sitting around and talking about guns?  Do you like talking about shooting almost as much as you like SHOOTING?  Do you think bourbon and whiskey are nectars of the gods?  Do you ever wish you could just hang out with other people who like them too?

022 Randy Harris on Low Light Training, Tactics and Gear. All the Lumens!

Randy Harris on Low Light Training, Tactics and Gear.  ALL THE LUMENS!

Firearms and tactics instructor Randy Harris rejoins us from Episode 1 and we talk about gun-fighting in low light conditions.  Randy walks us through some of what he trains his students in his classes, we discuss tactics and we talk about gearing up for gun fights in less than ideal lighting conditions.  Statistically more fights happen between 6:00PM and 6:00AM than the rest of the day!  Are you ready for it if the fight comes to you?

 

About Randy Harris:

Randy Harris is an instructor with Suarez International. He has 19 years experience working in the shooting industry, is an NRA certified instructor and has had articles published in several defense oriented internet newsletters and publications. He has been a practitioner at the National Tactical Invitational and has been a presenter at the Rangemaster Tactical Conference.

A recent student had this to say about Randy:

“Randy Harris is a subject matter expert that is teaching right in his wheel house. Randy is a nice guy who does not let his ego get involved in the class and what he is doing. He is probably the best firearms teacher that you have not heard of, and he is better than many you have heard of.”
