The worst firearms advice John Lovell has ever heard


#1

Some of this advice is so bad I haven’t heard it before…

John Lovell is a damn good shooter - definitely listen to his advice.


#3

That is something I would have never imagined anyone describing him as. I’ve seen a lot of his videos and he seems very genuine, goofy, and knowledgeable.


#4

I know witch video your talking about it was about how a gun feels in your hand I believe ?


#6

Okay, I just watched it and I’m not sure why you think that. But I am a girl :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#7

That video? Yeah, I’m gonna have to completely disagree with your “pompous ass” claims on the basis of that video.


#8

Hes got a nice clean cut look and he obviously does it for a living. I’m not to worried about his attitude so much as does he have something valid to teach me and I have to say yes. I like his martial arts take on getting sight picture. The more you do something the faster you will get at it naturally. Just like practicing a strait punch or an upper cut till you get it perfect. I do like Paul Harrel as well and his Shatner…Like pauses. :smiley:


#9

@Mister_Torgue Paul Harrell is the man! I wish he would come here. I been dropping the suggestion on his videos lol.


#11

I will be honest I have never heard of any of this “advice” ever. I’m glad that John is dispelling these myths.


#12

I watched the vid in question (IV8888) and yes he came off as my way or no way.
And a lot of cocky young trainers do come across like that, and stems from how their MoI (Method of Instruction) was taight to them.


#13

There is stuff out there where absolutes can be made. And given that topic, I would agree.

Someone with good skills can shoot fast with any gun, no matter what the grip feels like. People are lazy and make excuses and make a claim that the gun is the reason for their lack of skills.

If you watch anything else he does, I don’t think anyone would call him cocky. His videos include a lot of “there’s multiple ways to do this” and rarely teaches things as there being only one way of doing things.

But - sometimes definitive statements can be made.

Confidence does not nescessarily mean cocky.


#14

Some one please post the video in question.


#15

#16

I thought we were talking about this one:


#17

your right - grabbed the wrong one


#18

John seems to bring up a good point. Hearing excuses about this type of stuff is aggravating.
He seems to be responding to different situations and giving his opinion in a constructive way.


#19

Yeah. He is an instructor and has been one for quite some time. I’m sure he has heard this excuse many times over.

When funds allow, I want to get a bone stock Glock and put it through a bunch of standards drills and make a video about it. Showing people how their gear isn’t holding themselves back - their skills are.


#20

That’s funny because when I was training that’s all I would use as a side arm. Different sights “steel” but other than that bone stock. Even did trick shots with it you wouldn’t believe. 480 yard shot kneeling at a 24”x18” steel silhouette, hit on the 8th round spotter yield HIT!
Experience will always trump equipment with in reason.


#23

You can feel how ever you want about him, but please keep in mind that he was a sheriff and did multiple contract tours in South America, and the Middle East and there is no
Benefits for doing that. R.O.E are quiet more strict being a contractor.
Just something to think about.


#28

Let’s not get too far off topic guys.


#29

Fair enough.
