We’ve got a couple of things today…first is a quick, inspiring video of some MARSOC (Marine Special Operations Command) pistol & rifle training…
One of the things that stands out is how much of their training that they did in civilian clothes with concealed pistols.
Marine special operations, including MARSOC, Force Recon, and others, push the limits of what a lot of civilians think is possible or necessary with a pistol. They emphasize precision, speed, and the ability to make long distance shots with a combat sidearm.
Why? In large part due to the nature of the threats that they have encountered overseas while working in protective capacities.
Sometimes the shot you get is at 100 or 200 yards with a pistol. Sometimes the shot you get is a headshot at 25 yards. Sometimes the bad guy is wearing body armor or drugged to the point where an (eventually) lethal center-mass shot or two doesn’t stop the threat fast enough.
Look at the Baton Rouge shooter…a Baton Rouge PD officer stopped the threat from over 100 yards out. He used a carbine, but a lot of people (even officers) can’t make a body shot with THEIR carbine at 100 yards. Doing so takes solid application of the basic fundamentals of marksmanship.
Like this 230 meter shot on steel with a Glock 17 by former Force Recon Marine, Chris Graham:
Why is this a big deal?
Because the same fundamentals that help Chris shoot at a torso sized target at 200 yards on his first shot translates to shooting a playing card at 25 yards or a nickel at 21 feet.
You see, people get all hung up on the best gun, caliber, bullet design, etc., but the fact is that 80-90% of shooting is in your head. And that’s great news because it means that you can shoot faster, more accurate groups in the next 30 days without spending a ton of money on ammo, new guns, or gadgets.
Get your head right and get your mind firing off high quality neural pathways and you’ll be able to put fast and accurate rounds on target, no matter what the firearm, or what the distance.
And one of the fastest, most affordable, and effective ways to make sure that you have high quality neural pathways to fire off is with Chris’ 30-10 pistol course.
It is a step-by-step, 30 day, at home training system that’s guaranteed to put you in the top 10% of all shooters. Click >HERE< to get yours now.
Chris isn’t your average instructor.
He provides advanced weapons and tactics training to personnel from USG (US Government) agencies prior to deployment to high-threat zones.
More than that, he’s one of a relatively small group of guys who actually goes downrange and provides sustainment training to them while they’re in high threat zones.
- If you’re an instructor – Chris is one of the guys who you want to be picking stuff up from to use in your own classes.
- If you’re a shooter – Chris is an instructor who is teaching based on first hand experience downrange against determined attackers. His teaching isn’t stuff that worked one or two times 5, 10, or 15 years ago…it’s stuff that he or his students have more than likely used in the last few months, weeks, or even days in real life encounters.
Does 30-10 work?
One SWAT shooter was recently in danger of being kicked out of his unit. He went through Chris’ 30-10 Pistol Training and not only qualified, but is now one of the top 3 shooters in his unit.
It works so good that one VERY well known military and law enforcement tactical instructor (who I haven’t asked if I could use his name yet) now requires his students to go through the 30-10 Pistol Training before he’ll let them take a class with him!
Look, live training is a great and necessary part of becomming a safe, well rounded shooter. But you’re not going to develop habits and muscle memory/neural pathways at a 1, 2, or even 7 day class. 30-10 is how you can develop rock-solid shooting fundamentals that will stick with you and will stay strong when you add movement, tactics, and stress on top of them.

Are you a long range, open sight pistol shooter? If so, share your DOPE below…and make sure to include your gun, caliber, barrel length, what kind of sights you’re using.
And a couple rules of thumb…most .45 ACP will drop 12″ at 100 yards and 80″ at 200 yards. A 9mm will drop 8″ at 100 yards and 30ish inches at 200 yards. That’s a good starting point & caliber, load, barrel length, etc. will take it from there.
