The question is can a shot clock actually be used to find weaknesses in gear or weapon manipulation?
I use to think that a shot clocks use was only for the IDPA or IPSC guys and that I wouldn’t be able to benefit from it at all.
In short I found out that they do in fact add a bit of stress and can cause you to notice a weakness in gear that you otherwise wouldn’t have noticed with out a timed challenge.
I recently got back in to contact with some old friends that I use to train with. We haven’t seen each other for two plus years so we all got together in Michigan (an equal distance from one another to drive) and train again. Wow personally I really has to knock off the dust with my training.
Here is a short video so you can see just how many different and interesting malfunctions and how just a little bit of pressure can cause a person to miss draw a pistol from a holster.
On a positive note we all found different areas we needed to work on and improve ourselves, personal and gear related LOL!
So let me ask you! What have you notice help you with better weapons manipulation?
Would you ever consider using a shot clock?
I want to hear your experiences with training and the hurtles that you have personally over come!
