    That has got to be the most 'loose' gun handling I have seen.  I have seen many unsafe videos, but nothing that treats the weapons so much like toys.  I would not want to be within 1 mile of their location.

      Dear heavens, what's the point of crawling all over the cab? The last time I crawled around that much in a truck cab, I was 17 and getting laid.

      Product placement galore. Tactical Infomercial. A walking cliche' of being more tacticaliererness.  :rotfl  GDI

    I like that he states he can put enough targets on round in spite of the door shake.

    If I could, I would put all of my targets in one round and get a perfect score, rather than putting all of my rounds on one target.

    I also like how he could not maintain care and custody of his weapon in the middle of a deadly force confrontation, but has to drop it, roll out of his s___ wagon like a drunk who has just barfed in a taxi (don't judge, we've all done it), pick it up and then engage again.  It just screams professionalism.

    I watched till he was done shooting.  Though I had the sound off, so I don't know what his explanation was for climbing through the back half of the cab. 

    I noticed the dropping of the pistol to effect his ninja roll out of the truck.  And then his recovery of the gun was fumbled a bit as well.  No, not someone worth watching further, and definitely won't be turning the sound on.

    He didn't explain very well why he thinks monkeying all over the truck is a better idea than using the truck to run over your opponent or drive the fluff away.

      Because he's trying to be the next tactical trainer cult of personality du jour. So of course he's got to do something, anything unique and self-styled, regardless of worth, to brand as his own.....Just another self proclaimed badass bluffing, buffaloing and bulls___ting his way through life.

    Why expose yourself by getting out of the cab and getting into the back seat?  He could have just leaned out of the drivers door and shot upside down if he wanted to.

    #1 advantage of being in a commercial vehicle ...you can get away very very fast...so you give up that advantage, get out of said vehicle and do THAT?!?

    The stupid it burns...

    Ok you get out because your vehicle may be disabled...you maneuver behind using it as concealment (NOT cover) and return fire or use it to conceal withdrawal.... but that...wtf

    One of the problems amongst "tactical" instructors popping up across the country is they're wannabe "gunfighters".  Getting into a Hollywood-esque running gun battle in the middle of town is a terrible idea, but fortunately, such a scenario is very, very unlikely to happen for us average Joe citizens.

    If you have a YouTube video like this showing you doing this stuff...well, wouldn't THAT be fun to have shown to a Grand Jury?  Imagine if there'd been a video of Zimmerman doing this kind of crap!  :facepalm

    SHOOT HIM TO THE GROUND!!!!!

    USING POINT SHOOTING! BECAUSE, APPLEGATE!

    After that video, one might as well commit ritual seppuku in front of the jury in order to save face.

    He's since made all the videos private.
    And in a lenghty facebook thread, he attempted to defend it in that he was shooting from a borrowed brand new truck, and that he'd just crawl across in his own POV to shoot from the tactical door upside down hold and walrus flop transition.  It diddn't go very well, and he's since removed the entire thread.
    He claims "military experience" and that he's a "martial arts instructor", and that whole mess was done for some locally produced tv show. 
    Pretty much, he's just a giant fluffing fraud.
    In one of his other videos, there's a 5 minute segment on why you don't open the door to strangers.  He also does a tactical review of the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe (he is sponsored by some local Hyundai dealer....don't watch the commericals during his little show or you'll stab yourself in the face).  I s___ you not....a tactical review of the Hyundai Santa Fe.....

    If that's not scary enough, consider that a lot of new gun owners will go to some guy like the above to learn defensive skills.
