Re: Practice clearing a stoppage
Good advice again Delta, I especially like the dummy round system. It was used on me when training and I have used it a good deal when an instructor. To see those sights dip right in front of the students eyes is priceless in helping them learn the art.
I would also like to second practice of clearance drills off range with no live ammunition. very valuable, as long as duplicated on the range and under the eye of a proper instructor, not much point practising the wrong moves!
As for running around with blocks, maybe a few years ago. I would need a pretty scary drill instructor after me to do it today!
