Clint Smith is an expert on the use of Defensive Firearms. He is a Marine Corps Infantry vet, SWAT officer, and has been running Thunder Ranch since 1993.
I like his style, this thought process, and how he teaches. When I teach firearms classes, there are several techniques and lessons that I share that I gleaned from Mr. Smith.
I have searched YouTube for good training videos to share, and I have found several clips of Thunder Ranch training videos. Think of them as advertisements for their full length training videos. (I don’t gain anything from this, but I do think there videos are a valuable and worthwhile purchase.)
I love the manner and mindset behind this video. The way Clint Smith teaches the Three Places for a Handgun is a great resources as well as highly entertaining. This is a mindset video, but it is also very tactical. Where should I put my handgun when I am…. Three places for a Handgun is one of the better Thunder Ranch clips on YouTube – at least in my opinion.
I cannot stress how much I value Mr. Smith’s contributions to the world of defensive weapon usage. It is impossible to calculate how many lives have been protected by his knowledge and the valuable work of Thunder Ranch.
