“Warriors should not have ‘favorite’ weapons.”

Miyamoto Musashi, from his “Book of Five Rings,” written in 1645AD, near
the end of his life

One of our students recalls a valuable drill, and now knows why we include
it:

“Earlier this year, I was by myself in our remote mountain home.

Shortly after midnight, I was awakened by our driveway alarm and dogs
barking. Getting up to investigate, I saw headlights on our steep mountain
approach, heading in my direction. I observed for a few minutes as at least
one car pulled below my drive and backed up. Very suspicious, as I was not
expecting anyone!

I own two pistols, and on this particular day both were in the shop having
sights installed. As a novice shooter, I only feel truly comfortable
shooting my own guns.

But, my “favorite” guns weren't available!

My brain immediately flashed back to my training with Vicki and the ‘
Battlefield Pick-up Drill,’ where we all handled and shot every gun present.
This has to be the most valuable training exercise of my entire shooting life,
although I didn’t know it at the time!

Thanks to that training, I knew it was possible that I could pick up
whatever pistol was available, and run it correctly and effectively. Thus
mentally equipped with this ‘battlefield mentality,’ I retrieved my husband's
1911 (which I had never shot), and then called 911.

While I’ve never shot my husband’s 1911 pistol, I was not afraid of it.
I have shot other 1911 pistols, and I know how to run them, even though they
’ll probably never by my favorite.

I stood guard, observing headlights crisscrossing below my property, until
police arrived. I was informed the next day that several people in the
cars in question had been arrested as burglary suspects.

No harm done, but as it turns out, this incident was a wonderful training
exercise and wake-up call, and I discovered the true value of that ‘
Battlefield Pick-up Drill,’ which, at time Vicki put us through it, I thought was
superfluous!

I have my ‘regular’ pistols back now, and all is well, but I know I will
never again think in terms of self-imposed ‘limitations.’

I’ll find a way to win, not look for an excuse to lose!”

Comment:
Musashi in his day was a seasoned and exceptional fighter, the “John Boyd”
of his time. He lived in a dangerous place during a particularly
dangerous era, where the naive and unprepared seldom died of old age!

We are fortunate that he wrote down valuable and hard-learned advice
shortly before he died (natural causes) at the age of sixty-one.

He knew, as we do, that a “favorite weapon” is little more than an excuse
to lose. Thus, with the convenient absence of the “favorite weapon,” the
fight is decided before it ever starts!

In his most famous duel, Musashi (age thirty at the time) was challenged by
an extremely famous swordsman, known and feared throughout the region.
The confrontation was pre-arranged and took place on a beach. The
challenger, waiting in full battle regalia, was astonished and disgusted when Musashi
arrived, late, and barely dressed, as if he had just woken up. Musashi
neglected to even bring his sword!

Enraged and insulted, the challenger move forward quickly to make short
work of this impudent “Master.” His overconfidence was his undoing!

Musashi, using an oar from the boat in which he had just arrived, killed
his hapless opponent in less than a minute, then immediately departed in the
same boat!

As it turns out, the challenger was completely outclassed, not even in the
same league! He paid dearly for his miscalculation!

Musashi was always “ready.” He never waited for perfect conditions. He
never hesitated!

In his honor, we put students through the “Battlefield Pick-up Drill”
today, with today’s weapons, so our students absorb this ancient wisdom well!

During our lifelong journey as Operators and students of the Art, we can’t
help but develop preferences. We all like some guns better than others,
sometimes for good reasons, but sometimes for no particular reason at all, at
least none we can persuasively articulate.

No matter!

We must love, and be familiar with, all of them and never look upon the
invariable absence of “perfect conditions” as some kind of limitation upon
our ability to gain victory.

“The road of life is paved with flattened squirrels, who couldn’t make a
decision!”

Anon

Arizona sheriff to Memorial Day travelers: Pack a gun and beware of cartel hitmen

The emphasis is mine. Colorado is only one step away from Arizona, if you believe what this Sheriff says you should be on this course.

If you are planning to attend this course in Fairplay on June 20 - 22, GOOD NEWS!

I confirmed with the management of the Riverside Inn that they will again give us the "FARNAM RATE" of $80/night!

We have used this clean and modern facility for a number of years - and it has served us VERY WELL.
If you call to book a room, PLEASE be sure to ask for the "FARNAM RATE".
