Pushups + Pew Pew

Stress management training.

I big part of all my training, whether it be firearms or fitness, is to be able to manage stress in dynamic situations. Without this ability, one is a liability for both themselves and their buddies.

Training to a high heart rate, and then working on situational awareness and firearms proficiency is an easy way to add value to range days. Even if you don’t have a battle buddy joining you, you can still configure a range to be more dynamic.

Below are a few pieces of gear I take to my range days that assist.

Oakley M-Frame 2.0

 
Simply the best. On deployment I used the first generation M-Frame, and they were the bees knees. These 2.0’s are more robust with a retention clip in the middle and flattened arms for use under ear protection. Ear pro and Eye pro are two things you’ll always be using on the range and during training, so it’s best to keep it comfortable and reliable. Oakley has always held it down in the keeping my eyes in my face category.

GoPro Hero 7 Black

This thing is absolutely boss. I’ve been using GoPro for several generations, and the 7 is incredible. In this video I was using the head mount for one of the drills, and the Hypersmooth feature is almost impossibly good. This GoPro is crushing everything I do in the water, and the audio is good great and only requires minimal processing. In fact, all the audio in this video was processed only in Premiere Pro.
 
With the Hero 8 Black coming online, the price for the 7 Black will surely go down. It’s easily the best camera I’ve got to use for this stuff.

Training Cones

 
These pylons are normally seen on the soccer field, pitch? Doesn’t matter. They make for a great implement on the range. Different patterns of movement, firing, or repetitions can be established for increased difficulty.
 
They are also invaluable for fitness training, which of course contributes directly to performance on dynamic ranges.
