Aaron Cowan from Sage Dynamics discusses close quarters hip/point fire shooting, specific targeting of critical areas of the body and the reasoning behind rethinking point of aim in close quarters.
Aaron Cowan recently addressed what I feel is an interesting topic: performance walls, or barriers that prevent us from learning something new, and in the context of training.
In my experience, nothing changes the mood more on a range or in a conversation about training and practice than this simple truth; we are training to shoot people, not paper.
In this two part video series, Monderno contributor Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics talks ground fighting techniques with a pistol.
What is Center Mass? The generally accepted definition is “center of the chest.” This is usually denoted on a target by an X score ring or similar point of aim to aid in training. Unfortunately, this is wrong insofar as reality is concerned (and we should always be concerned with reality). Center Mass is the […]

The main reason for this is usually lack of a range which will facilitate low-light live fire and the general prohibitive cost for those on a budget to attend a low-light specific course. Because of these factors, […]
In handgun iron sights vs reflex optic part 1, Aaron compared accuracy and speed from 3, 5 and 7 yards. Well he’s back with part 2, and this time he’s shooting from 10, 15 and 20 yards, as well as a transitional drill on a 6 plate speed rack. Is a reflex sight faster or […]
