In some ways, this is an entertaining thread. If someone dropped in out of the past, say 1960, he would swear you all had been talking about a walk and draw competition. You younger folks probably don't know what I'm talking about.
Tell me this: do any trainers ever recommend another trainer or another school? My impression from reading what some of them have written is that their way is the only way. Another impression I have is that no one has any common sense all on their own and it takes a week's worth of training before anyone is trained enough to even touch a real weapon.
I'd say it would take a lot of humility for any instructor to admit that an individual could actually come up with a good idea all on his own, yet I have read of at least one who did make a compliment about someone who developed a carry method that was suited to his own circumstances.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
