“Just like a handgun drill, why would we shoot six rounds?” asks Rod Ryan, president of Storm Mountain.
“Well, we want to make the bad guy go away as fast as possible. Six carbine rounds in the upper cavity of the chest is going to make him stop what he’s doing against you, his threat per say, a lot faster than shooting one round and assessing that situation. That’s not a good idea. Don’t trust your family to that assessment concept. If he’s still up, still a threat, feed him more lead.”
Mr. Ryan spent more than 20 years combined, active and reserve, in the U.S. military as well as law enforcement. In 1996, he opened Storm Mountain near Keyser, West Virginia. It has grown into a world-renowned training facility for military, law enforcement, counter-terrorism personnel and civilians. It offers comprehensive firearms courses on a regular basis from a highly experienced staff. On-site lodging is available.
I recently took a firearms course there and learned more in three days than all year shooting and watching videos by myself. I asked him if I could film a few of the exercises we practiced and he enthusiastically agreed.
