1.5 Seconds to Live or Die

I’m often told by people who attend Front Sight that the Color Code of Mental Awareness we teach is worth the cost of the course alone and all the firing range training is simply a bonus.

I’m also asked by people who have not yet attended a course at Front Sight why we spend so much time on the range perfecting the presentation of your weapon from a concealment holster so you can fire two sighted shots to the center of mass of an attacker at a range of 5 yards in less than 1.5 seconds.

Here is a gruesome example of why those who have attended Front Sight all understand the importance of adopting the Color Code of Mental Awareness as their own and the need to be able to present a weapon from concealment and deliver life saving hits on an adversary within 1.5 seconds or less.

Watch this very graphic security camera video to see the a real life example of why Front Sight teaches Mental Awareness and Skill at Arms.

WARNING: This is a disturbing video for those who have not adopted the Combat Mind Set as their own or recognize the brutal reality of life and death at the hands of criminals.

As you can witness in this video, the reason why the Color Code of Mental Awareness is so important is because you can be the fastest, most accurate shooter and know all the high speed, low drag tactics in the world, but if you do not see the fight coming, then three men with AK rifles can be on you before you have the time to present your weapon.

You can also see the extreme value of being able to present your weapon and fire sighted shots (hits) at conversational distances in less than 1.5 seconds.

Had the victim of this murder been more aware, had he recognized that three men were following him, or seen the three men walking up to the store with AK rifles just 1.5 seconds before they entered the shop and started shooting, he would have had a fighting chance.

Instead, he and those around him had no chance.

The reality of life and death at the hands of criminals is that there are coldblooded sociopaths who will kill innocent people and shoot a woman in the back, if they are not stopped by law-abiding citizens who are trained in the Color Code of Mental Awareness and have the Skill at Arms to stop a deadly attack in less than 1.5 seconds.

I cover these topics in depth in my 67 Free Gun Training Reports that you can sign up for on my Front Sight website.
