Ultimate Pistol Video Course 2019 [ MTI ]


Welcome to the ultimate instructional video. In this video, we aim to shoot fast and accurately
from a pistol. We will be covering following techniques Our military group MTI, consist of professional
soldiers, police officers and sport shooters. Aim of this group is to train and test the
most advanced and most used drills, so we can train, improve and eventually master them. Since most of our members are in law enforcement
and military, they often participate on international trainings All drills shown in this video are therefore
based on many different international and private trainings and are not based on military
procedures of our country. This video is aimed to be a visual guide for
safe and effective gun handling techniques. For a proper training, please use a professional
instructor. we would like to highlight a few training
companies we are cooperating with Hard Task ( from Czech Republic)
Raid and Defense Academy (from Slovakia) Tactical Systems (from France)
and instructor Dean Hutson (USA) We recommend to work in pairs for your first
trainings, where one is training and the other is looking for mistakes and pointing out details. This is Martin and this is David. Martin has agreed to be our model and will
be showing us all the drills. The most important thing is always total safety. The gun needs to be handled in a way, that
if it misfires, it’s always aimed into an empty and safe area. It’s absolutely unacceptable, for even a
split second, to point the gun at another person. You need to completely check the gun and verify
the status of its main parts. Take several shots at a target, so you can
compare shooting before and after the training. Take the gun into your strong hand and then
add the support hand. The strong hand needs to grip the gun as high
as possible. The closer our hand is to the slide, the better
we can control the recoil. We need to hold the gun firmly, but not too
tight. Index finger is always pointing forward. It will touch the trigger only when we are
ready to shoot. Thumb should reside in a natural position. The support hand needs to be in contact with
the gun on the largest area possible. Both thumbs are pointing forward, fingers
fall between each other. Now, our hands are prepared to control the
motion of the gun. Strong hand is concentrating more on backwards
motion, support hand is focused on motion upwards. Ideally, we want the gun to come back to its
original position right after the shot. This will allow us to shoot accurately and
fast. No matter if you are using paper or metal
targets, you should be trying to achieve the fastest repeated shots, while still hitting
the target. If you can hit every shot, you can speed up. If you start missing, slow it down. These are basics of so called effective shooting. Its goal is to deliver as much energy as possible
in shortest time possible. However, to be able to do this, you will need
to learn something about trigger discipline and accurate shooting. Proper trigger techniques are crucial for
accurate shooting. Triger must be pulled with your index finger
fluently. If it’s not, the index finger will move
the gun sideways from the target at the time of shot. This is the most common and most commonly
overlooked reason, why people keep missing targets. Shooters usually realize this mistake only
after they took the shot, or they realize the mistake just before a bullet leaves a
barrel. To learn your way around the trigger, you
need to dry fire a lot. We need to make sure the gun is empty and
safe. Then we point the gun in a safe area, take
proper aim with front sights and quickly, ideally with a partner triggering us, we pull
the trigger. If the front sights moved, the shot would
land on a different spot than intended. Then we cock the empty gun again and repeat. But this time, we concentrate on pulling the
trigger constantly and fluently. You will need to pull it slowly, so you are
surprised when the shot comes. Later, if we have more control and confidence
in the trigger control, we can start pulling it faster. With precise shooting, we need to fully concentrate
on front sights. Everything else can be blurred, but the front
sights must be clear as day. You need to aim your brain on the front sights,
so to speak. At this time we start slowly pulling the trigger. With growing resistance of the trigger, we
pull slower and more carefully. If your stance and grip is right, your shot
will land precisely on the spot you were aiming at You don’t need to over concentrate on sights
being absolutely spot-on. If you do, you tend to pull the trigger in
a moment when we think the aim is at its best and pull the gun downwards in the process. This is why we ignore the slight hand movement
and we concentrate on proper trigger technique and front sights more than on target itself. If is the gun wiggling sideways when you pull
the trigger, you need to adjust the index finger Move it around the trigger, so you only create
force backwards and not sideways, when pulling it If after this adjustment, the shots are still
going sideways, you need to get a better grip on the weapon. With a bad grip, your shots will not only
go up and down, but also sideways. Adjusting grip is done primarily by your support
hand. The aim of the grip is to increase the gun
handling control. When taking repeated shots, you don’t need
to fully release the trigger. Only release it to the reset position and
you can take another shot. This mosition is more distinct with some weapons,
where we can hear a loud click. Fully releasing the trigger means you are
doing extra motion, that will slow down the repeated shots and increase the possibility
of pulling the gun downwards. The posture is also very important. Legs should be spread at shoulders length,
slightly bent in knees. Your toes should point forward and body is
leaning a little. When presenting sights to the target, only
your hands should be moving. Head, body and everything else is still and
firm. When drawing a gun, your goal is to stop a
gun automatically between our eyes and target, with the sights in a perfect position. The drawing technique is equally important
as the shooting one. You also need to start slow and work your
way up. Grip the gun with strong hand. Keep in mind that it is here, where you need
to grip it as high as possible to the slide, so we don’t need to adjust the grip later
on. Support hand is going upwards. These two motions should be trained simultaneously,
as a reaction to an unexpected event, shot, explosion or attack. With unexpected events like explosions, our
body tends to react by quickly ducking and moving hands upwards. When trained properly and repeatedly, this
reflex can be changed into — going for a gun with main hand and waiting to meet it in a low ready position with support hand our strong hand goes immediately after the gun and support hand goes upwards in order to deflect possible physical assault Gun is pulled out of the holster until the
barrel is fully out and we can start moving it freely Then we rotate the gun forward and our hands
connect right above our belly. It’s important to remember, that at this
point, gun should already be pointing in the right direction Because as soon as the pistol leaves the holster,
we can start shooting. Then we raise the gun from this low ready
position to high ready position at head level. Here, the front sights, back sights and our
eyes should be in one line to the target. Gun is constantly pointed at the target during
this motion. Next step is to put your index finger on the
trigger and pull it part ways. Stop right before the gun is about to shoot. This will allow you to take the shot in the
shortest time possible. Later on, we will be pulling the trigger partly
right at the point, where the gun is pointing at the target. Please remember to follow all the safety rules
with this training, since there is an increased risk of misfire. After the shot is taken, we visually check
the target and then the gun itself. You need to visually check if the gun is not
jammed. This can be also checked at low ready position. After the target and gun have been checked,
we check our surroundings. This is used to complete the picture of your
surroundings and avoid any unwanted or accidental situations. You should cover all your sides, so you map
your surroundings properly. This drill is always added, so the brain gets
used to it and it gets into your muscle memory. If you are shooting under stress and you don’t
forget to do this check, you can satisfy yourself with a brief look. Of course we mean on properly closed and safe
shooting range. Or if all the people are in your peripheral
view, check them only with eye movement. The important part here is to always make
your brain do some action that will trigger the checkup of your surroundings in a stressful
situation. If we are not 100% sure that there is a bullet
loaded in the barrel, we can perform a press check The slide is pulled backwards, but not fully. We only need to see if there is a bullet in
the chamber. We can pull the slide with our fingers, or
we can use the same technique as with a reload. Our hands need to be pressed against our body,
so we avoid fully pulling the slide fully. Pulling the slide is done by placing your
palm on the slide cuts on one side and fingers on the other side of the gun. With this slide pulling technique, we will
pull the slide properly every time. Even if the slide is dirty and slippery. Carrying a loaded gun is a thing of personal
preference. If you don’t carry a gun loaded all the
time, it’s also necessary to train loading it when you pull it out. On this topic, I would just add: Hundred people,
hundred tastes. It’s 2019 and nothing in this video is law. All the techniques we use here are constantly
changing and improving. It’s important for everyone to use techniques
that fit them best and avoid mistakes that could negatively impact shooting. We are aware, that not all these methods are
comfortable and easy to train. Especially in the beginnings. When holstering, you need to make sure there
is nothing in the way that could prevent putting a gun back into its holster. We find kydex or plastic holsters that have
no moving parts, to fit us best. You need to make sure there are no rubber
bands, plastic clips or anything else hanging from your clothing in front of the holster. Most accidents happen when something gets
caught between trigger and trigger guard while holstering a gun. This is why we tend to check the holster every
time very thoroughly. We can’t recommend leather or cloth holsters
that have moving security features and neither holsters that are attached with a simple clip. When holstering, we need to put our thumb
on the back of the slide. This makes sure we don’t accidentally move
the slide while putting the gun back into holster Its always good to put the gun away with a
full magazine, when we’re done shooting. This exercise is called tactical reload and
it is done after we are finished with shooting and we checked the target, our surrounding
and the gun. First, we take a new, full magazine, then
we swap it for the one that was in the gun. Magazines need to be holstered in a way, where
bullets always point forward. Grip the magazine between index and middle
finger of your support hand. Just grab it the same way as a cigar. Check it visually. Then remove a magazine from a gun with the
help of side of your index finger and your thumb. Insert a new mag to the gun and put the old
one away. If we have enough time, we can put this mag
into the last pouch, since its always better to pull out fresh mags that are closest to
our hand. Completely dry mags should go to a drop pouch,
or on the ground. Usual reload is a little different. Grip the mag in a gun firmly and pull it out. Take out new mag with your support hand. Put it on top of the mag and let your index
finger to the front of the pouch. IF we have a pouch where we can’t put our
finger to the front, we put it to the side. This means that when we pull the mag out,
our index finger ends up right before the first bullet. This will make it easier to shove the mag
into a mag shaft properly. Firmly hit the mag in and pull the slide. Releasing the slide by pulling it instead
of using slide release is more secure and due to our future drills, this will also become
more natural. Taking a bullet out of a barrel. Aim the gun into a safe area and turn the
gun to the right. Grip the slide right where the release window
is and pull the slide. The bullet will end up right in our palm. With any unexpected event, we should train
our brain to go for cover first. If cover is not possible, then movement should
follow. The automatic movement is trained by taking
a step to either side with each unexpected event, like shot, explosion, contact, but
also with reloads and gun jam clearing. Remember to always try and go for cover first
when these events occur. The usual gun issues can include:
⦁ Faulty ammo, when the bullet doesn’t shoot at all
⦁ Ammo casing stuck in the release window ⦁ Double feeding, where two bullets are
fed to the chamber at once When the ammo is faulty, therefore no shot
will take place, all you need to do is pull the slide again and, just to be sure, hit
the mag from the bottom, so its properly in place When the casing gets stuck in the window, take the gun down, back to working position and with the side of your support hand un-jam the casing With double feeds or any other type of jam,
we need to pull the mag out and cock the gun at least two times while holding the mag in
our hand. Then we visually check the gun, insert the
magazine back and release the slide. With a proper instructor and enough training,
all these movements will get into our muscle memory and will become very natural When shooting at multiple targets, we automatically
change the speed of shooting based on our accuracy with repeated shots. Changing targets is done by the size of the
angle. If the targets are further apart and the angle
is larger, we need to get the gun back to our body in a low ready position, turn to
the target and take aim again. This is done because we are turning into an
unsecure area. If the angle is small and targets are close
to each other, we simply lower the gun a bit and then move it to the next target in a U-shaped
motion. This U-shaped motion is very important, because
if we would skip it, we face a possibility of shooting too soon or too late when moving
the gun and therefore missing our target. With a U motion, we will either shoot high
or low, but we will always hit the target. Also, we can see a larger area of the target
right before we take the shot. Modify your training, so you cover as many
different scenarios as possible. Make sure you are always doing the basics
right. Aim to do all the procedures right, to properly
behave with an unexpected event, like your partner shouting. But please, always start slow and properly. Take your time with each procedure and once
you feel confident, increase the speed and difficulty of your training. This video covered all the necessary basics
for safety, accuracy, speed and will server as a base for more advanced procedures. Consider supporting

and safe shooting.

  1. One of the best (base class) instructional video ever seen on YT, especially the "animations"; amazing useful for anyone that have never got a class.

  2. what military do you go to i know its the MTI are you in the Slovakian or french nor Czech which one are you in i sub and followed your Instagram hope you do well in your drill training's

  3. Do you have a video explaining the difference between fire fights in airsoft and real life fire fights in detail? if not, can you make one?

  4. I love this so much. It is exactly the same as our NCO's teached us. Especially the addition of letting yourself be surprised by the shot. This little information goes a long way.
    – Greetings from Germany.

  5. At 4:25 I was like "oh, boy, if he posted it after 15th…" and when i saw upload date "…8th, uff, he posted it on 8th."
