Episode 8: Are Marksmanship Skills Overrated?

Marksmanship Skills Tactical Shooting

When you get to the range to do some training you judge your skills in part by your ability to group shots near the bullseye of the target but Jacob thinks that is a backwards approach. Today we discuss why groupings the size of basketballs are probably better than tight golf ball groupings.

Episode Sponsor

Today’s episode is sponsored by our new product the, “Gun Trusts: Owning and Transferring Class 3 Guns and Suppressors” The truth is most gun owners don’t understand how probate works. When you die, even if you have a will, the government is going to take control of your guns, along with the rest of your possessions and make them a matter of public record while a court assigned person makes sure your property is distributed legally and per your wishes. The only way to avoid that is with a trust. Check out our book at which is also available in our online courses. For a limited time while the product is new you can snatch it up for only $10.

    Great topic to talk about! Combat accuracy vs. fully sighted marksmanship on a range are completely different. Like training for sprints and then trying to run a marathon. Both have their application, but for defensive pistol training, you can’t overlook combat/point shooting training. Thanks for the topic and the podcast.
