I've got it recorded on the DVR. I'll watch it tonight after the wife gets done watching holiday movies on the Hallmark channel... :barf:

Married folks need more than one TV!

It was a great show. Awerbuck's targets were very interesting to see. Funny, after he talked about Bruce Lee, another cable station had Bruce chirping like a bird and punching people out.

The moving drill with the target surrounded by other dummies looked like a bear to shoot.

The dog segment was awesome - that one pup flying through the air to land in the car window was something to see.

Looking forward to the rest, Rob!

Not a bad show. Got the DVR set up to record them from now on. Awerbuck on 3D targets was interesting. Good food for thought.

Rob, a really nice new show. Also loved the Awerbuck piece - something different that we don't see on the other guns shows. Keep up the good work!

Is Awerbuck's training ONLY available to LE or is it available to civilians (for a fee )

Awerbucks training is not limited to LE. Tried to watch the show, but in my time zone, it appeared at noon, 4:30 pm and 11:00 pm. Not exactly my TV viewing times. So, how does TeeVo work?

It is an exciting drill. The time pressure and only having one shot make it a palm-sweating experience. I got the bad guy right between the running lights w/o perforating any good guys.

Louis' Mirage target system is the best thing going. Interestingly, Louis never tells students they have to take a head shot, but almost all do even when the center chest of the bad guy target is exposed more.

One day when we were at my range Louis let my Granson Austin, then 7 yrs old, shoot the system with "Alvin" his .22 Chipmunk rifle. Punched the bad guy center chest. Louis asked him why he shot the chest instead of the head and Austin said, "It showed up more than the head."

I suppose as we get older, we tend to overthink the problem...

We were instructed to take a head shot at Handgun I in Boone County this past August. I would have dearly loved to go for the easier COM.
