Part IV - Sight Alignment - 04/30/07 11:57 AM
How does Proper Sight Alignment relate to Real estate. Understanding how sights are designed is very important to the shooter. They also need to know the sights have limitations. Example, the only parts of the sights that are measured and cut within specific tolerances are the tops of the sights. I say this because if you have tritium elements installed, for near total darkness engagement, you will notice that most of the systems are made up of three dots. They have brilliant white paint surrounding the tritium elements. Most shooters align the three dots, two on the rear blade and the front (0 comments)
Part III - How is your Grip? - 04/29/07 12:24 PM
The Grip as it relates to holding a hand fired or shoulder fired weapon is essentially the same. You do not want to over do it, thereby inducing muscle tremors. You want to have about 60-80% of your maximum grip wrapped around the stocks. If you are at your maximum amount of grip then you will be shaking; vs. if you are holding it with an extremely relaxed grip, you will allow it to fly out of your hand during recoil, or become one of those dreadful re-grippers. When I meet someone, the handshake part of the contact is very meaningful to me. If the (5 comments)
Part II - Stance as it relates to Real Estate - 04/28/07 08:44 AM
"Your foundation is everything." A key component is how a person is standing, if you are fanning your feet angled to your sides 180 degrees, you will easily fall over. You want to distribute your weight about 50/50 on both your front and rear legs (if shooting Weaver). There are a few schools of thought as what is better, legs shoulder width apart, or support leg forward, and primary to the rear a bit. The point is that the stance or your foundation is something that is very important. If your foundation is not true, practiced and cured, it will begin to (0 comments)
7 Elements of Markmanship as it relates to Real Estate Part I. - 04/28/07 12:55 AM
Digest these: There are seven key elements to marksmanship that have been established and are currently taught as part of the LAPD firearms training program. 1.Stance, 2. Grip, 3. Sight Alignment, 4. Sight Picture, 5. Breath Control, 6. Trigger Control, 7 Follow through. If you look at these seven elements, they realistically can be broken into about three. Bring able to align the sights on the target, press the trigger without moving the alignment of the sights and being able to repeat it. The faster you can do these steps while achieving a surprise break, the more effective of a shooter you are (2 comments)
Genuine Character is Rare. - 04/27/07 12:51 AM
I wrote my first blog not too long ago. It was responded to by a lender who happened to like what I had written. It is funny how life goes and the path's that it takes sometimes. I was able to meet this man in person. Martin Rodriguez came to my office and what was funny, was that we talked very little about business but mostly about life and our experiences. It pans out that we are not from so different backgrounds. It also seems that our code is hovering in the same place, attached to our soul's, immortal as we (2 comments)
Functional Muscle and Fitness - 04/25/07 11:57 AM
I am glad I got those mouse pads! This is a daily routine unsupported back bridge, I hold for a count of 300, the slower I count the better. I can usually have my nose on the ground, but the pants and fact that I was in a hurry (only having 30 seconds to get into position, 14-15 takes later LOL). Having to grab a phone, that was a new experience. The preceding part of my daily routine is a unsupported front bridge, neck rotations(aggressive) after my core is warm, I move onto various routines, hindu squats/hindu push-ups the list goes (0 comments)
Connor Bridging - Bending over backwards for our clients? - 04/24/07 01:26 PM
So, there I was thinking about a marketing strategy that would encompass what we are about at Paris911, then I became distracted and started to play with my camera that has a 30 second timer. The interesting part is that I found a new use for the Paris911 mouse-pads we had made, besides for a mouse. I am glad that I bought the thicker version. The other thing that I realized was how short 30 seconds was. I also wondered if the lady that sits outside of my office wondered what all the thumping around was about. I noticed that grabbing a phone in that position was (3 comments)
There is the letter of Real Estate and the spirit of Real Estate... - 04/18/07 08:11 PM
There were quite a few close encounters that I had in the past 17 years with the LAPD. Some of which I choose not to even remember or talk about. Some of which caused memory loss, punctured lung and some missing ribs, 8-12-1992, 110 fry and Hill St. Police Motorcycle (me) VS. Car and Freeway wall. Car and Freeway wall were most victorious. Most police officers can speak of such events in their career's. But every industry is not without their members not understanding the difference between spirit and letter. Enter a friend of mine at the department, he was a machine, he even wrote his (1 comments)
We have an offer coming in... - 04/09/07 11:54 PM
So, here is something fun, almost every-time I call an agent to inquire about a property that I am checking availability on, it is told to me that they have an offer coming in and I should hurry. A couple of days goes by and my buyers are now going to write an offer. I call the agent on the same property and they tell me that I better hurry, there is an offer coming in. Ok, now lets stop me before I go on and on. Here is my way. Unless I have an offer in hand, it is not an offer. (8 comments)
