HEBREW HOGGER 2016: Training and Pork-Raiser
This is a tactical training conference to raise
funds to help save the Oinkin’ Acres Farmstead,
owned by US Army veteran, medic, Tactical Response
Instructor, Paul-E-Palooza Cadre Member, and Legendary
Hebrew Hogger, Eli Miller. In early 2016, Eli was
involved in a lawful self-defense situation and his
legal defense has caused enormous financial distress.
All funds raised will go to saving the Farmstead.
In addition to the training, Eli will have available
for purchase a variety of his prize-winning, heirloom
pork products! Support the Farmstead in the most
delicious, bacon-y way possible.

Shooting in Self-Defense, Part 3:
"Pulling the Trigger" by Sara Ahrens
"Thinking you can pull the trigger for self-defense
is quite different than being able to do it."
No, as a matter of fact, you don't know the
rules. You're just a sheltered, socialized,
civilized, pampered, coddled, suburbanite.
And this is in America. It gets worse
overseas; fewer cues and more deception.

this is mirror-realistic. This is a step

Close Quarter Pistol:
Keeping Your Gun in the Fight
Notice at the two second mark, 0:02 / 3:45,
you will see Mr. Adam Painchaud, Director,
Sig Sauer Academy pull his concealment garment
up out of the way and then move his hand down
to establish a grip on the pistol.
We teach to stick your thumb under the
concealment garment and raise it just high
enough to get your hand on top of the pistol
to establish a high tight grip. Present
to close contact and fire. This results in
shooting through your concealment garment.
But, as it requires less movement, is faster.
I know a police armorer who tosses his
pistols into a 5 gallon plastic bucket of WD-40
overnight before cleaning them. You can get the
same effect with a zip lock bag and a few ounces
of WD-40. He also uses an ultra sonic cleaner.
Those things are very expensive. I've gotten
equivalent results with a dish washer. Dish
washers are great for cleaning fencing masks,
kitchen sponges, and all kinds of things you
can't put in the laundry washing machine.

The Art of Teaching: by Aaron Jannetti
"... know why you teach and know where you stand ..."
Part 2 "Instructor Conduct"
"... believing in something,
finding out it’s wrong,
changing it, ..."
If you can't do this, your attitude is wrong, and
you should fix your attitude before inflicting
it on your students.
Part 3 "Reaching the First 90% of Students
(Visual and Auditory Learners)"
"Give the information they need, in that moment,
to get moving safely and effectively, through both
physical demonstration and verbal explanation."

what really matters is what they HEAR.
