John Chapman (Chappy) is a retired police Lieutenant and a serving reserve SWAT officer. His operational and instructor experience spans both public sector and private sector working domestically and internationally. The founder and Director of Training of LMS Defense, he draws on his experience as operator and instructor. I have followed John Chapman’s post on various forums for years. My first introduction to his training style, depth of knowledge and pragmatic fundamentals in Make Ready with John Chapman: NVG/IR Skill Builder DVD. Video training does not replace a professionally instructed curriculum under the critical eye of a mentor. But with training time and funds limited, new or innovative training is hard to acquire for those in the profession of arms. Make Ready with John Chapman: CQB Shooting Fundamentals is an excellent addition to your training library.
This is a gunfighting video. The information presented is intend to create a base of CQB shooting skills and begin training yourself Chappy is a excellent orator who uses humorous or solemn declarations to drive a point home. During the video, he alluded to two future videos: a higher level CQB one and a vehicle tactics one. I would like to see a low light video by John Chapman to compliment the NVG/IR DVD. For the armed professional, get this video and accept Chappy's challenge.
Take care out there
