Thank for reading!  See you on the range.

Thank for reading! See you on the range.

This one will be short.   [cryout-button-color url=”#” color=”#47AFFF”]I am asking for help.[/cryout-button-color]   There are a couple thousand of you that actively read, follow, and engage on the Shooting-Performance blog.   I have over 100 FREE articles on gear, guns, and mostly on training your body, mind, and spirit to excel in either competitive shooting or defensive skill-sets.   I have gotten tremendous feedback on this blog, and plan to continue to add more and more useful information.

What I want from you: I want your feedback, and stamp of approval.

I am going to say this bluntly- There is a ridiculous amount of information on the internet these days, most of which is complete garbage.   I don’t say that without knowing I might hurt someones feelings.   Don’t get me wrong, there is also some really good stuff, but most is crap.   I used to read everything and everything I could get my hands on in order to improve (and I am not just talking about shooting stuff), but recently I have realized that if I do not validate and trust the source, I am probably wasting my precious time.   I hope you realize that most, if not all of what I offer is high quality information that is directly applicable to you.

Word of mouth is the single best way to share a product or service, because it means that you trust who you are promoting. I would respectfully ask you to do two things for me if you find value in this blog:

  1. Share with 3-5 or more of your friends that might benefit from the information, and if you would post the web address on your social media I would be very appreciative.
  2. Give me feedback on what you need from this blog.   I could write on a million things that I like or want to explore, but the reality is that what you want is what matters.   Please email, post comments on this article, or find a way to tell me what you want!!

I thank you for reading and following, and will do my best to improve and give you what you request!

Until Then – Train Hard!

    Same here.. will post/forward on my twitter/FB and other forums I use. The information you provide (blogs, books & videos) is sound, proven and effective and has helped my shooting skills improve dramatically.

    I met Mike a couple of years ago and had the privilege to attend one of his classes. One of the best instructors I’ve ever met. Practical/tactical sound instruction. Best thing, I saw Mike about a year later in the airport. Without hesitation, Mike asked if I had time to go to the range. Mike is always looking to further our skills.

    Twitter and FB your material all the time…you represent yourself in a professional manner, are clear and concise with your information, and have my trust and respect.

    I am so glad to hear you ask for participation in developing your work. I already share your articles with friends, and will continue to in the future.

    As far as future subjects to cover, I really want to hear more people thinking through where the biggest gaps are if our goal in training is to preserve and enhance our lives, and what we need to focus on to fill those gaps. For instance if someone wants to be great at marksmanship we have many incredible resources available, including your own material. The same can be said for general fitness, or MMA type combatives. But multidisciplinary courses are still rare. Recently I’ve seen a little more coverage of vehicle tactics in the last few years (from Craig Douglas, Pat MacNamara) which is great. But I see key questions still going unaddressed. I’ll list some of the ones I wish I heard more about.

    -Should a person’s physical training differ if they are focused on self protection vs. more mainstream strength, endurance or high intensity regimens, if so how?

    -What are the ways to maximize training value per dollar or minute spent? i.e. for those of us who are not splurging on top of the line gear and/or courses, how should we prioritize investing our limited time or funds? (who should be considering reloading, DIY projects that are actually worthwhile vs those that aren’t; what’s the best system for dry-fire, etc.)

    -What is the minimum we need to know about other self-preservation related subjects like: medicine, driving, communication, situational awareness, legal issues, and information security? Who is doing good work on these subjects that we can learn from?

    -if family members do not have as much interest in security as we do, but we want them to be safe, what’s most important to talk with them about first?

    There are more, but you get the idea. In addition to pure shooting, what are we missing and what should we do about it?
