    Want to get realistic? Watch this video
    The best instructor Panteao Has, he knows what he is talking about, great tips and he leaves the tacticool and instead focuses on realistics!

  2. Levi

    Great DVD. Definitely one of the most realistic training DVD Panteao offers. Spaulding has a great series.

  3. Clayton

    Dave always provides videos & series that are as real as it gets. I would highly recommend adding this DVD to your defense series & training regiment.

  4. Nancie

    Finally someone who can lay out realistic scenarios for an engagement. Only thing I question is if these scenarios of being attacked by hand constitute lethal reaction and the realism of justifying such actions.

    Absolutely awesome video! This is the 3rd video from Dave Spaulding that I have watched and I learned so much from it, and I am no newbie with a pistol.

    This is an excellent training video: it handles the subject of dynamic close range encounters in detailed and in-depth manner.

    The instructor is knowledgeable and he presents some impressive gun handling skills in the video, but does not make his own performance the centerpiece of the film. He is also very inspirational, and I like his teaching style when he does not try to force his opinion of things to the viewer. Instead he presents the pros and cons of every technique and tactics he teaches, gives his own recommendation, but ultimately tells that it´s up to the individual to choose themselves.

    The only chapter I did not like very much was shooting while seated inside a vehicle. He does not use a real car, but instead has two chairs to act as props. He tells he did not get his producer to give him a car to shoot in and out of, so he chose to do it this way. I would have liked that the techniques would have been demonstrated inside a real car with nonfiring training guns, and shot live using the two chair setup. Anyway, this is a minor issue in otherwise excellent film.

    A must watch for any CCW holder.

    A must-have training video after you’ve watched Dave Spaulding’s Combative Pistol Craft Essentials—a lot of drills to watch and follow along in your living room (dry fire of course). Dave is one the best instructors I’ve seen.

    Make Ready with Dave Spaulding: Critical Space Combative Pistol is one in a series of 6 Excellent Training Videos offered by Panteao Productions that feature Dave Spaulding. I believe this is the third in the series and it does an excellent job of building on the concepts from the first two videos and then moving into the concept of “Critical Space”. In this video, Dave Spaulding expands on the different shooting positions shown in the previous video. The focus of the video is on dealing with an up-close attacker so there are a lot of one-handed firearms manipulation techniques and demonstrations of how to fend off an attacker with your free hand. This video and the other 5 in the series will make a Great Addition to your video library!
