To be an effective warrior, you should master, what Jeff Cooper described as, the The Combat Triad.
It consist of 3 elements.
- Gun handling / Manipulation
Generally accepted interpretation:
Mindset, is the basic foundation, everything builds upon. If you are not mentally prepared to use your weapon, the pyramid falls, everything else doesn’t matter.
Gun handling / Manipulation, means you must master every aspect of your weapons; the manual of arms, controls, carry method, where it is pointed at all times and the safe employment into any firing position.
Marksmanship, is being able to hit your intended target, fast and with precision under all conditions and ranges for that weapon.
