He's in a shoot house so don't think the 180 rule applies.

I saw that on another forum and although his speed is impressive I think those drills are ingraining bad habits. So what happens when one shot doesn’t stop them? Yes, I realize that is why he’s looking but he’s conditioning himself to fire one round and that gives the people he’s firing at time to fire back. In the time it takes him to assess multiple attackers they will have time to return fire and I doubt one round center of mass will instantly take them out of the fight. I think after getting that fast it would be prudent to get off the X (and get out of the middle of the attackers) and give them a second or third round each.

All that being said it is still pretty mpressive.

Absolutely useless range theatrics.

looks like a shoot house, so no 180 to break....but

- if you are that surrounded, you probably get an 'F' in situational awareness
- if they're that close to you, I doubt you're going to have time to get all four
- if they're that close to you, moving quickly back left or back right, if successful, puts all four opponents in front of you with hopefully two of them blocking the other two's line of attack

he might be better served practicing shooting while running backward or while falling backward to the ground......

My thoughts exactly. This will eventually result in a self inflected gun shot wound. :nono:
