The hallmark of top tier tactical professionals is not how quickly they shoot, or the number of dance-fighting moves they can add to the end of a drill, instead, it’s how relaxed they are in the presence of extreme stress. Range training encourages anxiety when it rewards unneccessary mental tension or wasted physical energy. And if we are serious about carrying guns for a living, we should do as much as possible to minimize stress on the objective.
