1 Hole Groups By Christmas

If you or a loved one want to be able to shoot 1 hole groups by Christmas (or New Year’s Eve if this is a Christmas present), then keep reading…

What kind of shooting performance is possible when you master the mental component of shooting?

If you follow Insight’s Deadly Accuracy Home Study program, you’ll be shooting 1 hole groups within your first few minutes on the range after going through the home study program, like Joe Homs from California talks about in the video below:

Joe’s a relatively new shooter, as evidenced by his use of “clip” instead of “mag” or “magazine”, but who cares if he knows the right terminology if he can out shoot the majority of the shooters at his range!

You might be asking why 1 hole groups are important.

3 things.

1. Most shooters can’t shoot a 1 hole group at 5 feet, let alone 11, 21, or farther out. A 1 hole group is a great test/benchmark to IMMEDIATELY tell you if you’ve got your grip, trigger press, vision, and sight alignment correct. Add speed to the equation, and you raise the bar a quantum leap.

2. The nationwide average hit ratio for law enforcement is 15-25%. The rest of the rounds fired miss their target. Just like Mel Gibson taught his son in “Patriot,” “Aim Small, Miss Small.” If you let yourself merely hit the target in training, stats, history and logic tells us that you’ll miss a lot under stress. If you train to shoot 1 hole groups–at first slowly and then progressively speed up–your groups may very well still expand under stress, but stats, history, and logic tells us that you’ll hit more and MISS LESS.

3. The mental dynamics that are taught in the Deadly Accuracy Home Study Course have been proven in real life engagements to help the shooter remain calm and in control when most people would lose it. They’re able to use their front sight and they’re able to put fast, accurate shots on target. It’s not just about shooting 1 hole groups–that’s just a stupid human trick that you’ll pick up–it’s about performing at an incredibly high level when you’re behind the curve and lives are on the line and putting rounds where they need to go to stop a threat.

Go ahead. Get it now and shoot better than you thought possible by Christmas (or New Years if it’s a Christmas present) by going >HERE< now << 60% off for Christmas!

    VERY interesting testimony! And, it makes a LOT of sense.

    The old adage “PRACTICE MAKE PERFECT” is TOTALLY incorrect. It SHOULD BE, (as my Drama Teacher taught us), “PERFECT PRACTICE makes PERFECT!”

    Obviously Joe’s been given GOOD & WISE, & UTILIZABLE counsel!

    It is a FACT that the ORIGINAL founding “plank members” of SEAL TEAM 6 (1980’s), shot 1000 rounds a day, for an entire year…(More than the entire Marine Corps that year!). Needless to say, THAT FACT is why, (in the Movie “Captain Phillips” – [Tom Hanks] – the two TEAM 6 snipers took out the tangos, (on “high seas”, and while the ‘skiff’ was bouncing around), at 100 yrds., by making PERFECT HEAD SHOTS! It CAN BE DONE!…It just takes TRAINING, TESTING, TEACHING, and EXPERIENCE.

    when will you have a program set up for mac users? also will you give us mac operators the same price as the windows operators are receiving at this time? Its been a long time since i fired expert in the military but I want to enable my wife and I to hit what we aim at and especially if its an intruder,since we seniors in our middle sixty’s. thanks retired vietnam soldier

      soon, but no promises. It’s a matter of deciding how to best deploy limited assets (time and money). Up until recently, most Mac users either had a PC they could use or a friend with a PC and so they didn’t release a Mac version. Increasing demand due to Microsoft’s increasingly stupid and unstable operating systems has pushed Matt and Sherrie over the edge…they’re doing the Mac version and it might be within the next week or the next month, but I’ll let you know when it is ready.

    I am a firearms instructor. I do not see anything in this promo video or article that addresses ammunition, firearm or distance from target. Five feet is mentioned, but not stated as the distance to target when firing these one hole groups. I do agree that it is not important how long one has been shooting, but very important how many round are fired, in practice, using correct technique. One hole groups are extremely difficult to achieve, even when fired from a match prepared firearm, with ammunition prepared for that firearm, and fired from a Ransom Rest.

      Hey Al,

      The 1 hole groups aren’t REALLY the goal. 1 hole groups are the sexy byproduct of the goal, which is the proper application of the mental, visual, and physical components of shooting.

      If you have an acceptable level of accuracy of 8″ slow fire groups at 10 feet, a shooter can hide a LOT of fundamental problems that will be exacerbated during high stress shooting, high speed shooting, and/or shooting while moving.

      The focus on the 1 hole group makes it much easier to diagnose and fix fundamental issues. Once a shooter can predictably and repeatedly shoot 1 hole groups (more than 5,000 students have done so within their first 20 minutes on the range after the classroom portion of the training), it’s proof positive that they’ve got the fundamentals down. It also means that when you start pouring on stress, speed, and movement and groups open up that they’re opening up to 2-4″ groups from a 1″ group rather than opening up to 16-36″ groups from an 8″ group.

      As to the gun and ammo, I’ve trained with Matt & Sherrie several times and shot a Glock 26, 23, and 17. I’ve seen people quickly shoot 1 hole groups with range and duty ammo using everything from .357 sig and 10mm down to .22 and TINY .380 pocket pistols. In short, at combat distances, 1 hole groups are 95% software (in the head) and 5% hardware.

      In 3 years of using this technique, I’ve only run into one time when I couldn’t put rounds one-on-top-of-each-other. A knucklehead friend of mine loaded a mag with a combination of vastly different loads…from subsonic to +p+ and 115 to 147 grains and had me try to shoot it at 21 feet. Otherwise, factory ammo in stock guns are capable of shooting 1 hole groups.

    Bring on the Mac version, please. It’s going to be hard for me to do one-hole groups before Christmas, if you don’t get the Mac version out soon :-)

    Disappointed that the guy didn’t show his target or have video of him making the shots. This is a bold claim, would be good to have something backing it up.

    In law-enforcement circles, we prefer a spread of impact within the center mass area, rather than several rounds through the same wound channel, since a single track may not be incapacitating enough. A “Robin Hood” effect on the target is GREAT – in Olympic competition, but not when we want the target immediately incapacitated. It would be nice to know what Martin Fackler, MD has to say, since he is the wound ballistics guru in the USA.

      Hey Durabo,

      Yes, that IS popular in law-enforcement and military circles, but the incorrect application of that sentence is one of the factors leading to 85% miss rates among law enforcement. I’ll paste a section of an article that ran in it’s entirety here: http://survivethecomingcollapse.com/4241/4-firearms-myths-that-bad-guys-believe-and-you-shouldnt/

      Theoretically, I agree with this with a carbine or rifle.

      A pistol is not a carbine or rifle. A pistol is a relatively pathetic tool for stopping lethal threats in a timely manner and it normally takes multiple well placed shots to stop the threat from a determined attacker who is at close range. (Determined attacker=one who doesn’t turn and run at the sight of a muzzle blast, regardless of what it does.) If you take exception to my comment about pistol ammo being pathetic, check your state’s hunting laws and see what caliber they consider to be the minimum humane caliber to use on deer. In most states, you’ll find that the guns that most people carry on a daily basis aren’t legal for hunting.

      So, back to spreading your groups out vs. 1 hole groups…

      2 things…First off, shooting a one hole group at a static paper target standing flat footed doesn’t necessarily translate to shooting a 1 hole group on a dynamic attacker when you’re moving.

      If you train to shoot 1 hole groups…or at least tight groups, you’ll get the 2-5″ groups that you’re looking for in combat when you add in speed, stress, and motion. If you insist on shooting a standard of 5-8″ groups in practice (without being able to shoot 1 hole groups), stats and hundreds of police after action reports per year show that you’ll probably miss your target with 8-9 of 10 shots fired.

      Second, keep in mind that even the best defensive ammo is weak and underpowered compared to carbine and rifle ammunition and piling round after round on top of each other is a wonderful thing…if you have a specific purpose and target in mind.

      If you’re piling round after round through the lower right quadrant of the belly, you’re wasting time and ammo.

      But if you’re viewing your attacker 3 dimensionally, as you should be, and aiming through the body for the T3-T4 vertebrae, then let’s say, for arguments sake, that the first round uses up a lot of it’s energy punching through clothing and the sternum or other bone. The 2nd shot could go 2″ away from it and spend a lot of it’s energy punching through barriers again, OR it could go right through the first hole and have significantly more energy to disrupt the circulatory system or possibly even get a CNS stoppage by hitting the spine.

      Will it really happen?

      Probably not.

      The first example is more realistic than this one–the chance of you and your attacker being in the exact same spot and orientation from 1 shot to the next is next to zero…which is all the more reason to TRY to pile your rounds on top of each other rather than adding a variable to the equation.

    Paper does not shoot back. Paper also does not move when the shooting starts, They also do not square off with you. Rage stories do no equal street performance.

      As I’m sure you know, shooting paper is a step in the process.

      To follow your statement out to it’s logical conclusion, all training, from beginner to expert, would be done against live attackers using live rounds. Pretty ridiculous, wouldn’t you agree?

      You are correct that range stories don’t equal street performance BUT range failure DOES equal street failure.

      crawl, walk, run. It’s a process. But, that being said, what’s your alternative?

    Someone standing in front of a camera telling me what they can do does not convince me they can do it. Just do it! That would be convincing.

      That’s kind of the point. He’s no super-operator-Rambo and he quickly shot better than 99% of all shooters.
