DTI Quips were written by John Farnam to provide his students with short and accessible references about defensive shooting. Learn from others' mistakes and be prepared to act because "when it?s least expected, you?re elected!"
DTI Quips are often training or operational information sent by friends or colleagues. "Everything I send out is anonymous, as I don?t want to get my friends? names associated with controversial subjects. The training point is what is important. I have strong opinions, and sometimes I have to paraphrase and even alter unimportant details, but, again, it is the training point that I try to emphasize. I have no financial arrangement with any manufacturer or service provider, and I accept no advertising. So, I am free to say terrible things about all of them, and have. In my opinion, the only thing in this world more boring than someone who won?t come to the point, is someone who keeps talking after he has made his point! Getting good and reliable information to my students is the only thing that matters to me."
