Basic Handgun Training Video - Glock 17

Hey There,

So I recently produced a video about firing handguns, specifically the Glock 17. The video's main goal is to be entertaining, but I was also hoping to instill some of the reality of what training with a gun is like. It's for a show that covers a wide variety of topics.

The firearms instructor didn't really teach marksmanship as much as he did self defense, so he just wanted us to blow away at a target without thinking.

What do you think? Useful or just wildly dumb video?

Maybe less "funny" stuff. Maybe change "you killed him" to "you stopped the threat"... seems more aligned with other training. Killing isn't the goal. People shoot to save life.

Very cute and entertaining.
And well done.
Well, except for the learning anything part.
I enjoyed it very much.
Good job - except for the learning anything part.

I never cared for locking the wrists up. I usually shoot handguns with relaxed wrists and relaxed elbows.
