A Forgotten Comment on Rob Pincus and Combat Focus Shooting – October 2015

In my earlier post on learning Rob Pincus’s Combat Focus Shooting method, I mention Melody Lauer’s after action review (AAR) of the CFS course she took back in 2015.

Branding in the Firearms Training Industry, Revisited: Rob Pincus’s Combat Focus Shooting
