Not Just For Women

The NRA has been featuring a series of training videos featuring Kim Heath. They are called Tips and Tactics and come under the NRA Women TV label. Just because they are labeled "women" doesn't mean men can't get a lot from them.

I know for a fact that I'm not in the same physical condition I was in my 20s and 30s. I think one of my docs has referred to it as "deconditioned". What it means is that I don't have the same strength and stamina that I had earlier in my life. Kim's videos show different ways to compensate for our body's limitations.

The latest is on managing rifle weight. As a day of shooting goes on the rifles tend to get heavier. Kim shows a way to take some of that weight off your arm and transfer it to your body.

I also really like the Counter Supination Grip that she shows in the video below. I might not use it all the time but it does allow you to transfer the weight of your AR from your arm to more of your body.


  1. I've been watching her videos, too...I think they're really good.

  2. That is the most common fore hand position you will see for off hand stages at high power matches.
