Training on a three-dimensional target has to be very specific, because a lot more cost, setup time, effort and energy go into training on a 3D target as opposed to a standard two-dimensional target.

Real fights are dynamic and your target is very unlikely to be completely still. Having a smooth trigger press while maintainingWatch Now >>
Multiple Target Engagement Drills are a great way to work on contextually appropriate skills, including gun handling and shooting on the move, with a defensive long gun or pistol. Rob Pincus demonstrates these shooting drills with the CMMG Mk4 5.56mm AR-15-type rifle. Check out Rob’s full CMMG Mk4 review for a closer look at thisWatch Now >>
