NRA Carry Guard Daily 6/1/2018

Observe, Orient, Decide and Act

Grant Stinchfield and NRA Carry Guard Director of Operations and Lead Instructor, Jeff Houston, discuss a training acronym that military members and law enforcement officers often use—OODA loop.

“Observe, Orient, Decide and Act … remember that acronym and go through the OODA loop process in a moment of danger.”

Observe and Orient – Where are the exit points? Where are the areas of cover and concealment?

Decide – Based off of these observations and orienting one’s self, determine the best strategy if something were to go wrong.

Act – Move to the position that was decided upon through the observation and orientation stages.

NRA Carry Guard Daily airs live on NRATV Monday through Friday at 12:30 p.m. Central, 1:30 p.m. Eastern. Past episodes are available on NRA Carry Guard and on NRATV.
