Armed Off-Duty Cop Lives to see Another Sunrise thanks to being armed, reacting quickly and using good tactics, mainly moving out of the kill zone (Getting off the “X”)
Remember: Training to React QUICKLY and WITHOUT HESITATION is going to be the main factor in you surviving a situation like this.
Never wait for them to point a gun at you for you to react!
In a situation like this, where the outcome and intent of the bad guy is obvious, The Time to Start Shooting is When You See Another Gun, period!
Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
Not too drastic a change to the COF, but enough of a change to add enough realism and challenge to make the drill respectable.
I agree with the author, if the licensee cannot meet this very standard baseline of skill, something is terribly wrong and they should seek additional training.
Bottom Line folks, if you are going to carry a gun for self-defense, NEVER depend on the State or anybody else to dictate to you what your training should be! Seek it out on your own and be the CAPTAIN of your own ship!
Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous!
