Like most big breakthroughs I’ve made with shooting, this one started with me thinking I was better than I really was…
I was doing some neurology training and a TBI (traumatic brain injury) therapist came up to me and asked if I’d ever thought of doing gun training with a laser beam attached to my head.
I still picture Austin Powers and laugh a little bit any time I think about it.
The guy had gone through a couple of my courses, so I didn’t want to be rude.
Besides…it sounded kind of fun.
So, he had me strap a laser beam on my head, like one of Dr. Evil's sharks, and practice going through the motions of drawing and shooting…to see how much excess head movement I had during my draw stroke.
He had me try to trace lines and curves on a wall…to see how precisely my neck could control my head (which is pretty darn important for shooting on the move or shooting moving targets)
And he had me try walking around with as little movement of the laser on the wall as possible.
My head moved more than it needed to, my neck control sucked, and…
…What I thought was a smooth Groucho walk
looked like the EKG
of a squirrel on crack!
I didn’t know what I didn’t know and I had been completely blind to just how much of an impact this had on shooting performance.
But, now that my eyes were opened, I had to figure out what just happened.
What I found was that if you can’t keep your eyes steady or moving smoothly, it’s WAY harder to see good enough to aim while moving.
In fact, every time your eyes jump, you go blind for a fraction of a second because of a phenomenon called saccadic suppression. (I'll show you a fun drill you can do at home to see this yourself) And it's a lot harder to aim when everything appears choppy.
Dynamic vision when you or your target are moving is radically different than static vision when you and your target are stationary.
They use different parts of the brain, different muscles, and dynamic vision is almost always way worse than static vision…especially at off-angles…because of how it’s combined with balance.
That’s a big reason why shooting performance drops off a cliff when people try shooting on the move.
In a self-defense situation, that means you’ll need to fire more shots to get effective hits and have more of a chance of hitting something or someone that you don’t want to hit.
I realized (like you probably are right now) that this was something I couldn’t afford to get wrong.
It’s something that no other instructor had ever taught me…not in person, and not in anything I’d ever read or watched.
But, that's not really too surprising...there aren't too many firearms instructors who study neurology.
Sure, I’d shot on the move and was already better than most, but this was an easy way to make a dramatic leap forward.
Very little effort and a BIG, quick payback.
When I got home, I played around with strapping laser pointers to my head with tape, bungie, rubber bands, and anything else I could find.
I started drawing designs on my dry erase board…some for eye speed, some for neck stability, hand-eye-coordination, and some to improve balance.
Over time, my vision training target blended together with my dry fire target so I could do either dry fire drills or laser drills with the same target.
It ended up looking like this:
Kind of fun, huh?
The only problem was, the design was too big to fit on a paper target…and even if it did, if you’ve ever ordered full size targets, you know that shipping is ridiculously expensive.
And once you get them, they're pretty fragile and kind of a pain to store.
So, I went another direction…and did something so unique that it is currently Patent Pending.
I printed the targets on bandanas…Tough, HUGE 39” square bandanas! That means they are not only cheaper to ship…they’re WAY easier to use and store.
When you’re done training, just fold or wad them up and stuff them in a bag or a drawer…something you definitely can’t do with a paper target.
And, if they get dirty, greasy, or if the dog steps on them, you just wash them off and you’re good to go.
And the size?
Well, I’ll just say this…you can fit WAY more training (and value) on a 39” target than a typical 20” paper target.
You can fold them and use part of the target when space is limited, or use the whole thing when you’re able.
This target is set up to help you do some really powerful training at home…and on the road. Including:
And the best part is that it gives you a way to do gun training with or without a gun or anything shaped like a gun…which makes it perfect for training when you’re away from home. (You could even hang it up at work and do several of the drills that don’t require a gun)
This is a big deal because all shooter's KNOW they need to do more dry fire practice, but most tell me that one of these 3 obstacles are stopping them...
The Tough Secchi Target solves all 3 of these problems...
There are a LOT of training tools on this target that aren’t obvious, but that are extremely valuable.
Take the 2 black pie shaped black areas in the center.
That’s called a Secchi Disk and it’s one of the easiest patterns for the human eye to pick up. In fact, it’s used to measure water clarity.
The Secchi disk was created in 1865 by an Italian Jesuit priest, astrophysicist, and scientist named Pietro Angelo Secchi.
On April 20th, 1865, while working for the Pope as a scientific advisor, Secchi was tasked with quantifying the clarity of the Mediterranean Sea…and he created the Secchi disk to do so. 150+ years later, his disk is still one of the easiest tools for measuring water clarity or turbidity.
Fast forward to 1917 in Bavaria and BMW had to get a new logo. It wanted to use the colors of the State of Bavaria…which has blue and white diamonds…and modified it into squares and it became the blue and white Secchi disk that people recognize around the globe.
Surveyors use the pattern for targets because it sucks the eye into the center.
The pattern even showed up in the garage in the hit movie, "Ford Vs. Ferrari!"
And I’ve been rotating and using this pattern with shooters for a couple of years with great success…first an upside down triangle, then 2 triangles with the points touching, and finally the rounded triangles that you see here.
What that target means for you is that if you’ve struggled with trusting your sights, focusing on the front sight and letting the target go blurry, this target design will give you the confidence to know that you will shoot tighter groups when you focus on your front sight.
Not only that, but...
This is the most powerful dry fire target I've ever seen. It's taking PhD level neurology used by the most elite pro athletes and warfighters and making it accessible to everyday gun owners.
I’ve had groups of shooters where just switching to the Secchi target caused them to shoot 3-4 TIMES tighter groups…instantly…just because they finally trusted their front sights instead of trying to shift focus back and forth as they were pressing the trigger.
And, when they went back to standard targets…
The tight groups remained because the finally understood and believed that they could focus on their front sight and shoot at a blurry target and shoot faster, tighter groups than if they focused on the target.
For many, it completely changed their relationship with shooting.
It was like someone flipped a switch and they finally “got it.”
Everything clicked…and shooting was suddenly easy for the very first time.
The drills are fun, easy, quick, and ridiculously valuable…not just for shooting, but for situational awareness, driving, and more!
These are some of the same dynamic vision and balance drills used by top professional athletes and tacletes use to gain an immediate advantage over their opponents.
In some cases, they’re the difference between a minimum contract and a multi-million dollar contract.
Between being in the top 10% in the world and being in the top 2-3 in the world.
Between going home unscathed or not…
It’s that big of a deal.
And, if these drills give elite competitors an advantage over other elite competitors, imagine the advantage they’ll give you over a low-life attacker.
The best part is, when you do this type of training that’s so much higher leverage than traditional live fire and dry fire training, you get better results in a fraction of the time…results that impact every area of your life and not just shooting.
When your visual system is working better, it’s easier to avoid threats while walking, running, or driving.
When your balance system is working better, you’re less likely to trip on obstacles, fall down stairs, run into things, or slip on slick surfaces.
It’s a win-win…in only a few minutes at a time, a few times a week, in the comfort of your own home, you can build the skills you need if you ever have to use a firearm to save a life AND improve the other 99.9% of your life in the process.
So, you’ve got 3 options on how to move forward…
Before now, if you wanted training like this, the ONLY way to get anything like it would be to go to your doctor and get a referral for a series of 12-24 appointments with a behavioral ophthalmologist, neuro-optometrist, or similar professional for stroke, TBI, or brain cancer recovery...and then hope that you got someone who was on the cutting edge and using this kind of training.
Even then, it would cost you thousands of dollars to get the drills and gear...and the drills would be geared towards rehab rather than being specifically designed for self-defense shooting performance like what you'll get with the Automatic Aiming System.
You can get the training and the gear directly from me...gear and training designed to be fun, fast, and effective. Designed specifically to give you a serious edge in ANY self-defense situation, regardless of whether you've got your gun, empty hands, or something else.
Here is what you're going to get when you sign up for the Automatic Aiming System today:
A portable, foldable, 39” Tough Secchi Target. The therapy version of these targets cost $100 or more...JUST for the target. (Value: $100)
A switchable (so you don't have to remove the batteries between uses) 650nm 5mW laser (with batteries) and an adjustable multi-use headstrap that you can also use for attaching any pocket tactical light to the top or either side of your head for hands-free work. (Value: $30)
Instant, lifetime access to 50+ static and dynamic follow-along HD video drills on to improve your draw stroke, automatic aiming, both-eyes open shooting, peripheral awareness, peripheral vision, off-angle shooting, dynamic vision, vision speed, hand-eye coordination, and balance for shooting on the move...the way real world shooting happens. Normally, in a $200 appointment, you'd get 3-4 drills to do at home, so this has a real-world value of more than $2,500. (One nationally known female instructor shared with me that they'd spent several thousand dollars on similar drills they got from therapists to help their daughter) Value: legitimately $2,500, but I understand that's hard to believe until you experience it, so let's call it $250.
3 Tactical Vision Training Letter Pencils. You’ll learn how to use these powerful pencils alone and in combination with the Tough Secchi Target to do 360 degree discernment and engagement training…with or without anything that’s even shaped like a pistol! Vision training pencils will set you back $10-$20 apiece...and no other vision training pencil has the features that these have that make them especially effective for firearms training. (Value: $30)
These are the ultimate in portable, stealth, tactical vision, balance, and shooting training.
That's less than the cost of a single private lesson with me and an incredible value and prices are only good while supplies last so take action now.
I've got 3 options for you...the Automatic Aiming System package as well as 2 beefed up packages that come with additional training tools.
Chances are good that nothing will change. You’ll shoot the same next week, next month, and next year as you do right now.
And, if that was good enough, you wouldn’t be reading this right now, would you?
If you don’t take action, the same things that frustrate you now at the range will frustrate you tomorrow...and the next day...and the next...
If you don’t take action, you’ll still have the same nagging fears about whether or not you’ll be able to perform when your life and the lives of those you love depend on it.
Somewhere out there, there’s a bad guy looking for another sucker who bought into the lie that they can “rise to the occasion.”
You know better.
That’s why you’re here.
You know that hope and dreams and good thoughts don’t save the day in a life or death situation…it’s the training that you have or haven’t done that’s going to determine how the day ends for you.
You can do more of what you’ve done to get to where you are today, but Einstein said it best when he said that “Doing the same thing more frequently and intently and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.”
What you need is a completely different and more efficient plan. What you need is Automatic Aiming System
Go ahead and get started now by clicking the best one for you
How long will I have access to the online materials? What if I can't complete the every day? Can I do the training with my family? Can I watch the videos multiple times?
First off, you'll have the physical tools to keep and access to the HD online follow-along drills forever. There's no problem taking days off during the training. You can re-watch the videos as many times as you'd like for the rest of your life. You're encouraged to use the training with everyone in your household who can safely do it.
Won’t Dry Fire Hurt My Gun?
Dry fire is the manipulation of a firearm with no live ammo present. You can do it with your carry gun, a blue gun, an airsoft gun, SIRT, CoolFire, T4M Paintball Trainer, or other inert training tools that we’ll cover
You can do dry fire draw strokes all day long and you don't have to press the trigger a single time.
You can practice transitions between targets, acquiring your sights, and other visual drills without ever having to press the trigger.
You can practice reloads and malfunction drills (tap, rack, assess) without ever having to press the trigger.
But let's move on to what you were thinking of...dry fire drills where you press the trigger and the hammer or striker moves forward.
MANY modern defensive pistols specifically say in the manual that you can dry fire them without a snap cap. Others don't say, but when you call the 1-800 number on the front cover, they'll tell you whether it's fine and whether or not it's fine for high volume dry fire or just low volume dry fire.
Here's a general rule. If you use Dry Fire Cord (which you'll get) or a snap cap that has a surface for the firing pin to strike, you can dry fire ANY firearm regardless of whether it's hammer fired or striker fired
Almost all centerfire pistols that use a hammer need Dry Fire Cord or a snap cap to do high volume dry fire training. This will do less wear and tear on your pistol than doing live fire.
Will the Automatic Accuracy System work with revolvers?
Absolutely. The terminology is directed towards semi-automatic firearms shooters because that is what most people carry for self-defense purposes. Again, since the program is fundamental and not dogmatic, they will work for revolvers as well as they work for semi-automatics.
I’ve trained with the best instructor at the best school in the world. Are you going to try to change my technique?
Probably not. The Automatic Accuracy System will not replace current techniques that you have. They are not dogmatic and if you’d compare them to a country, they’d most resemble Switzerland–everyone gets along with Switzerland.
The purpose of The Automatic Accuracy System isn’t to teach technique, it’s to help you take the best technique that you already know and help you upregulate your vision, balance, and hand-eye coordination so that you can perform dramatically better under stress.
I’m a newbie shooter. Will The Automatic Accuracy System work for me?
I’m a Special Forces firearms instructor at the Special Warfare Center and School. How in the heck The Automatic Accuracy System help a bad ass like me?
The Automatic Accuracy System will help any shooter who wants to improve their speed, accuracy, and precision. One problem with traditional dry fire training is that if you do the same dry fire training all the time, the mind learns to filter it out and the neural pathways don’t translate over to live fire.
The variety of exercises you’ll get, the increased cognitive load over normal, boring dry fire drills, and the multifaceted approach means that your mind will get enough variety to be stimulated and for growth to keep happening.
The Automatic Accuracy System is designed to work best after a shooter has received SOME instruction from a qualified instructor…preferably an NRA, law enforcement, or military instructor with proper emphasis on safety and correct form. That being said, you can
This means that if you’ve trained at high end national schools like Gunsite, DARC, Mid-South, T1G, Suarez, Sig, ICE, Blackwater/Xe/Academi, Costa Ludas, Thunder Ranch, Frontsight, or any of the thousands of elite local trainers across the country, the Automatic Accuracy System will give the skills you've got a SERIOUS boost. Put another way...what they were doing was helping you maximize software. Automatic Accuracy is going to upgrade your CPU and RAM so that you can run that software under load without lag and faster than you thought possible.
-I’m in horrible shape. Will The Automatic Accuracy System still work for me?
-I’ve got nerve/muscle issues that cause the shakes. Will The Automatic Accuracy System work for me?
-I’m a world champion fitness guru. Will your Automatic Accuracy System work for me?
-I have a non-functional/amputated limb. Will your Automatic Accuracy System work for me?
Yes. The Automatic Accuracy System is not dogmatic and users can alter the drills so that they are more or less challenging without compromising the benefits of the drills.
Every single person is going to have a performance ceiling. If you’ve got the shakes or are in your 80s and out of shape, your balance, vision, and hand-eye coordination may not be as great as if you were in the best shape of your life, but the drills WILL still help you improve those areas and shoot better.
-Is The Automatic Accuracy System safe?
-Won’t I put a hole in my TV if I do dry fire?
In this day and age, nothing is safe. If you try to eat Tactical Vision Training Pencils, you could choke, get indigestion, or some other crazy problem. You could fall over doing one of the balance drills and break your neck. I’m not joking with these examples—simply highlighting how warped our society has become in regards to “safety” and blame. In short, guns are effective because are dangerous tools. We will give you and suggest tools to make the training as safe as possible, but if absolute safety is a concern, you probably shouldn’t buy the training.
By definition, dry fire training is responsible training with a weapon platform without any ammunition present or training, an inert weapon platform, or with a simulated weapon platform. You can still get hurt if you fall on it, trip and fall while doing a drill, etc.
But, if you have a negligent discharge during your training, then you weren’t doing dry fire. Dry fire is responsible training with a weapon platform without any ammunition present, an inert weapon platform, or training with a simulated weapon platform. If a live round of ammunition gets introduced into the mix, it is not dry fire and it is not an accident—it’s negligence and it’s your responsibility to keep it from happening.
Will you sell these to kids under 18/21?
Adults who own firearms should have all firearms in their house secured so that unauthorized users can’t access them. It is their choice and responsibility, not mine or the cards, to determine who has access to the firearms. That being said, the drills can be done with inert training platforms like blue guns, SIRTs, or even kinetic platforms like airsoft (with the approval and supervision of the parent).
In addition, once you’ve done the drills for real and can see yourself doing the drill in your mind, The Automatic Accuracy System can be used for mental rehearsal without any platform whatsoever—just by going through the drills in your head. In fact, mental imagery (without physical movement), Tactical Pencil drills and Vision Bottle drills are all ways that you can do firearms training on ANY commercial airline flight in the world—or even while you’re going through airport security.
