Taught by the Crucible's chief firearms instructor, this video will show you that it's not the size of the gun in the fight, but where and how you place your rounds that spells the difference between getting home safe and going to the morgue. There are a lot of myths and misinformation swirling around pocket pistols, and veteran shooter Phil Motzer cuts through it all to teach various concealment and carry methods, shooting tactics, and ballistic effect on flesh. Going from revolvers to pistols and using calibers from the .22 to the .38, this is a comprehensive study of the real-world use of the pocket pistol in combat. Don't be fooled by the small size: in a deadly-force encounter, a well-placed round from a small-frame handgun can end the fight quickly and permanently. For information purposes only.
As the former Senior Director of Training for Crucible, Phil Motzer was responsible for the development and training of curriculum for personnel going overseas to high threat areas. Training that includes practical pistol skills and the use of various other firearms; shotgun, carbine and firearms indigenous to the foreign area to which personnel are being deployed; and counterweapons techniques. Trainees have included personnel from the Defense Intelligence Agency, Department of State Diplomatic Security Services, Federal Air Marshals, Secret Service Counter Assault Team and Emergency Response Team, and Department of Energy. He has more than 17 years of experience in the force-protection and security fields, and has been deployed all over the Middle East doing security assessments and surveys. Motzer served in the U.S. Marine Corps in infantry and intelligence.
