I came across this on a TV show and wondered if it was an actual thing or Hollywood BS.

Apparently, it's a thing, primarily in CQB. But, a quick scan of YouTube on the subject nets me a bunch of questionable videos from people I've never heard of.

So, my question is, are any REPUTABLE trainers using this?

Names? Links to videos?

The Center Axis Relock has been around a long time. Most notably it came back to public view in the first John Wick movie. I'm sure that folks are still teaching it, Keanu Reeves is a prime example that he was taught this for the first movie. But, the thing that I'll note is that anytime Wick/Reeves took any kind of distance shot, he went back to a more modern shooting stance.

To me, in close quarters, I prefer just to keep the gun on the center line in the high ready position. I can shoot from there, fight for the gun if I have to, etc. I can shoot up close from there, and press the gun out as I get distance.

"There are only two reasons why a proven technique doesn't work under stress: the shooter isn't adequately trained in it's application, or he/she doesn't really believe it will work because he/she is programmed for failure to begin with." BG
