Zero Takes His Shirts Extra Smedium To Reduce Drag

Instructor Zero on the Mozambique Drill and International Law:

keep-calm-wear-extra-smediumWat?  Maybe if he spoke english I’d be able to decipher the point of this video.  Is he trying to say that in some countries you’re supposed to shoot to wound?  Is he saying that a shot or two to the chest is fine, but that one to the head is overkill and not good?

Wait for it…. Wait for it…. 1:05  LOLOL

Someone also please explain what the point of having the sunglass lanyard hanging down in front of your neck is.  Is that another high-speed thing I wouldn’t understand?  is his forward momentum always so great that he’s more worried about his sunglasses lifting up and flying off behind him?

If there is ONE person I’d trust for important advice on international law it would definitely be Instructor Zero. The “Instructor Zero told me” defense never fails in court. :P

being Australian i can probably help with this as its mainly aimed at people being out side the USA in shit holes like mine.

hes talking about in many places self deference its about using antiquate force to keep your self safe and not escalating the situation or defusing it by some one getting hurt/killed unnecessarily.

Ah yea. Can you even use a gun to defend yourself in AU period?

Dayum Mike, quit busting I.Z.’s balls. I think it was the second or third video I ever saw of the guy where he talked about his heavily accented English. He knows he speaks English funny. He’s aware of the situation.

If you walked out onto a range somewhere and all of a sudden Z appeared at the line you’d be an instant girl wanting him to show you ‘how he does that’. You know you would. :)

While his shooting skills look impressive to the masses, they’re not really anything special. You can see better performances at local IDPA and USPSA matches – sectionals and state matches you’ll see much better. Everyone went ga-ga over his .8 second draw and first shot. I regularly shoot a .95 first shot split. The different between .8 and .95 is less than the blink of an eye (eye blinks average 300-400 milliseconds). There are people I shoot with who can shoot that first shot in .67 seconds. If you spend enough time, and money, shooting you’ll get much faster. Even regular dry fire sessions will bring first shot times down by as much as 40%.

LOL “He’s aware of the situation”. Oh yea I’d fangirl hard watching his every move, and never mention I was from ENDO.

This dude sounds like an extra from The Ringer when he talks.

Looks like a Suunto. I don’t know which model though.

Did they disable closed captioning on his videos??

Yeah, was hoping youtube could help me understand what a “furrection” was @ 0:26 but no joy there. OTOH, if it has something to do with his tacti-beard and his … you know, just never mind.

“Is he saying that a shot or two to the chest is fine, but that one to the head is overkill and not good?”

vaguely on topic, but at the only range in NYC there is a notice “no headshots allowed”. wondered what that was about but never ask. i wonder if you put one in the silhouettes melon, does a dalek appear and announce “on the orders of Obergruppenführer Bloomberg and Gruppenführer Cuomo, incinerate yourself immediately citizen”.

The guy knows how to shoot, period, even if he isn’t gonna win an idpa contest. At least for the moment.
His accent is funny, mine is probably too.

But his look is a desperate attempt to look important and tactical and tier-4 and commander of the death star and all. Who the HELL wears his ear pro while talking in studio set? Is the director really speaking THAT loud? Really? The beard + the sunglasses,(again, on set) + ear pro + baseball cap + patches + tactical watch… You.re trying too hard…

Maybe he keeps the earpro on so he doesn’t have to hear himself talking. Just a though. The hat I can see, he has no hair up there. One video he had the hat off. I guess male pattern baldness doesn’t go with the image he’s crafted.

Too hard to give screen time to sponsors if the logos are behind your neck. ;)

I call bullshit, shooting someone is shooting someone. How the hell am I supposed to know where my bullets hit? He’s trying to be the fake accent Massage Aboob of the internetz. But I suppose he has a following, there is no shortage of tactical timmies.

The lanyard is clipped to his earpro. You can see it in the second part of the shooting when he does his scan.

I think Zero is cool. I used to be a hater but I think there’s a sneaky undercurrent of humor in a lot of his vids. As there is quite often in Funker productions.

Would drink a Miller with.

“The lanyard is clipped to his earpro.” @ beetlebailey33

Second, in several of his other videos that you have posted on ENDO you can see that the lanyard is attached to his earpro so he can sling it when he (if ever) takes it off I guess.

Some good subtitles in this one.

“Soulmate Shooter”, I may need to change my screen name.
