No, the Glock 48 doesn’t kill the PD10. I don’t even think most people will truly find it to be a better pistol… but, time will tell on that front. It won’t be long before people start shooting the Glock 48 for real… when they do, ask them if they’ve shot a PD10 before you accept their comparative thoughts. The good news is that more and more people will be able to make that actual comparison as time goes on.
“Perceived Penalty for a Miss” is a psychological factor that may affect your balance of speed & precision. That is how we at I.C.E. Training Company talk about the psychological factor that could cause you to hesitate to take a shot that you absolutely can make in a defensive shooting situation.

I’ve been wanting to get back into producing my own audio content and leapt at the opportunity to record a conversation with two friends who are spending time thinking and talking about important issues that affect the firearms community, Mike Sodini and Maj Toure. The unscripted and unplanned dialogue revolved around the work that both men are doing to educate and raise awareness about responsibility, tragedy prevention, legal gun ownership and the stigma that can accompany gun ownership. Maj is the founder of Black Gun Matter and Mike recently launched a non-profit organization intended to collaborate with mental health professionals to address a variety of issues.
The Defensive Shooting Fundamentals program is completely developed, launched and reaching students all across the country.It’s been awhile since I have formally posted any type of update on the development and growth of the Defensive Shooting Fundamentals Program. The PDN Training Tour had me busy since March and there is always a lot going on… but, this seemed like a great time to share some information, with a large Instructor Development class being held this weekend in Wisconsin.
If you aren’t encouraging all the gun owners you know to be responsible ones, you may very literally be endangering yourself and those you care about… you may also be endangering our right to keep and bear arms.
After 15 years, I have officially decided to change the name of the Combat Focus™ Shooting Program to “Intuitive Defensive Shooting™”. This was not something that was done lightly, as many people have come to trust the “CFS Program”…. And many people have been advocates for it, often in the face of significant skepticism, for many years.
You don’t want to be a dog sitting on a porch who leaps off to chase a squirrel and gets hit by a car… there will always be instinctive reactions and emotional responses at the outset of an critical incident, by having a plan you can avoid getting sucked into a bad situation by executing an Intelligent Rational Response instead of just improvising in the heat of the moment.
