Get For­mal Train­ing to Learn Im­pro­vi­sa­tion

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pistol Caliber Compatibility -

It’s not easy to tell some­one how to im­pro­vise ahead of time, for the same rea­son that it’s hard to pre­dict the fu­ture. But for­mal train­ing will give you a good foun­da­tion of skills to build on and make it eas­ier to rec­og­nize im­pro­vi­sa­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties when you find them.

Here are some com­pa­nies Eric rec­om­mends that teach pa­tient/ ca­su­alty move­ment as part of their cour­ses.
