Myths about Bringing a Knife to a Gunfight

Myths about Bringing a Knife to a Gunfight

 

If you carry a Handgun for Self-Defense you should dedicate a LARGE block of your monthly training to knife attacks.

They happen more frequently than you think and due to Hollyweird and Fantasy Gunfight Training most armed civilians and sadly a large percentage of law enforcement have no clue how to properly deal with them.

If you can still find them, check out Kelly McCann’s Combative Pistol/Knife and Dog Brothers Die Less Often DVD’s.

They are two of the most Practical/No bullshit pieces of training regarding how to “deal” with violent street knife attacks.

Fight Like A Girl And Other Lessons From A Stabbing

 

Really great read for not only Women but also Men; sometimes it pays to analyze and critique an attack like this in terms of what you were taught; what worked, what did not not and what you can do to IMPROVE your odds next time.

This statement really struck home:

“Self defense is a lose/lose situation. Even if you win, you’ve lost. You have been attacked or victimized in some way. All of your attempts at avoidance, evasion and deescalation have failed. You’ve already lost your battle to some level and now the goal is to lose less and survive.”
