While shooting accurately under stress is not a new concept, it’s one that’s very important to consider working into your training. Because accuracy is not only fatal, it is final.

There’s never a time in a real world situation where using a firearm is stress-free, no matter if you’re Law Enforcement, Military or a concealed-carry citizen forced to act. In every stressful situation, shot placement is key. On top of dealing with mental and physical fatigue, you have to put down the threat as quickly and efficiently as possible while maintaining your situational awareness, scanning for that next possible threat.

In this special presentation, William Bethards will discuss the mental and physical shooting stresses and ways to reduce and often overcome a multitude of shooting related anxieties.  The listeners will hear and understand several different methods of training through shooting drills and training scenario's presented during this lecture.
