The Philosophy behind The Method

The Deadeye Method is structured around two Albert Einstein quotes.

The first being:


"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."


And, the second is:


"If you can't explain it simply, then you don't understand it well enough."


For some decades any instructor wishing to make a splash in the shooting world just made up a stance or grip and declared it better.  Once stances and grips were exhausted we saw advent of a half-dozen flashlight techniques, then came reloading methods and finally dubious tactics based on questionable logic. These instructors made shooting more complex and attempted to make themselves bigger.  When all the various methods of reloading, standing, gripping the gun or using a flashlight were exhausted there came the more violent approaches instructors chose to set themselves apart- mostly in the form of confidence drills where students or instructors shot targets increasingly closer to a living person. 


It's time someone got back to teaching students to shoot (as opposed to this dangerous foolishness) and a few fundamental firearm facts along the way.


I can explain shooting simply because I understand shooting.    


I can explain the proper application of tactics because I understand tactics.

I can explain defensive pistol craft because I understand defensive pistol craft.
