3×3 Review: QSI Training Vehicle Defense Class

| July 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

Last Saturday I attended the vehicle defense class taught by Erik Pakieser of QSI Training. I have a good time at all of the classes I attend, but the vehicle class is the most fun. I’ve been training with Erik for quite some time, and this is the third year I’ve taken his vehicle class. […]

The final scenario of ECQC is a one on one fight inside of a car. One student is the driver, who picks up a hitch hiker. Both participants are armed, but the hitch hiker has the advantage of having their pistol already drawn and under their leg. The defending student has to buy time in […]

2015 Year in Review: Training

| December 18, 2015 | 7 Comments

I squeaked out just over 300 hours of professional, fight-focused training this year — 304 to be exact. Adding in lecture-only classes brings my total up to 320. This does not include practice time at home, or live fire at a shooting range. It also does not include the personal Kali instruction we’re getting. Here’s […]

Carrying Appendix While Seat Belted 2015 Edition

I carry appendix, and always wear my seat belt. Safety first, both in and out of the car. Before I took my first vehicle gunfighting class last year, I seat belted myself in as normal. The lap belt went over my shirt and across my pistols (I carried a backup G19 up front back then). […]

I attended the Shivworks Extreme Close Quarter Combat course taught by Craig “SouthNarc” Douglas last weekend. In a previous post I discussed the different modes students used to train with each other: Consensual – students offer little to no resistance during practice. Non-consensual – students offered resistance at the direction of Craig, depending on the […]

EDC Vehicle Gunfighting Class: Bailout Drill

EDC Vehicle Gunfighting Class: Bailout Drill

| July 17, 2015 | 2 Comments

We attended the QSI Training Everyday Carry Vehicle Gunfighting class held on July 11, 2015. The drill we’re going to evaluate today is a “bail out” drill, where for some reason we are forced to exit the vehicle. Perhaps we’re boxed in, perhaps the vehicle has been disabled via collision or munitions, whatever. The point is […]

I am alone in my car most of the time. However, sometimes The She Shepherd and her kids are in the car with me, and sometimes I travel with co-workers. We practiced with a dummy in the passenger seat in last year’s QSI Vehicle Gunfighting class, but the inclusion of a second dummy this year […]

“Shoot the glass!” The villain Hans from Die Hard urges his comrade to shoot the glass to aggravate the barefoot hero, John McClane.

Preparing for a road or highway shutdown

Preparing for a road or highway shutdown

| December 5, 2014 | 5 Comments

Illegally blocking roadways seems to be a popular tactic where I live. Yesterday 150 – 200 people blocked a major highway, and shut down traffic for over several hours. Apparently no one was injured, and no one was attacked, but with this many people disrupting traffic it’s only a matter of time before something happens. I […]
