Who Is Your Attacker

Who Is Your Attacker?

Drew Beatty

We all have a vision of an attack we may be involved in. It’s natural and healthy for the defensive-minded person to project themselves into certain potential attack scenarios and work through them mentally – the home invasion, the carjacking, the terrorist attack, the co-worker who finally lost it. I think it’s also important to have an open-minded attitude and expand on those rehearsals in case expectation and reality differ.

Armed Encounter Fallacies 2

Armed Encounter Fallacies from Self-Defense Opponents

by Drew Beatty

In my last post I outlined some fallacies that are sometimes heard from proponents of the right to keep and bear arms and armed self-defense. The opposition has their fallacies too. These are often heard from media and politicians who oppose the right to keep and bear arms. Frequently these fallacies are used to incite fear and sway debate on various RKBA topics.

Armed Encounter Fallacies from Self-Defense Advocates

by Drew Beatty

There are many fallacies pervading the culture of armed self-defense. Many of these are put forth into the marketplace of ideas by anti-gun zealots who want to motivate fear of firearms and firearms owners in the general public. This article isn’t about their fallacies, it is about ours. Proponents of armed self-defense also have pervasive cultural fallacies. Many of these will sound familiar to you.

Learning Armed Defense

Learning Armed Defense is All of These

by Rob Morse

We tend to break complex tasks into simpler pieces. The self-defense community is particularly prone to this. We teach safety, marksmanship and concealed carry. Later, you might learn self-defense. We talk about education, instruction, practice, training and testing as if everyone used these terms correctly. I’ve even heard a politician say that humans are not trained at all. We talk about one piece of armed-defense at a time and make it sound simple. That doesn’t mean it is easy.

Imaginary Dangers

The Real and Imaginary Dangers of Firearms Training

by Rob Morse

The most dangerous thing about guns is….

... I could accidently wound my pride.
... I need a new gun before I can take a class.
... I could make a mistake in a self-defense class.
... I might look clumsy or unsafe, and leave my ego bleeding on the classroom floor.

Ammunition Capacity

Do you have enough ammo to stop the threat?

by Drew Beatty

A gun is used to preserve your life in the face of a violent encounter. If you are forced to use your firearm, you are likely in a fight for your life or the life of someone relying on your protection. You are using the gun because the threat is real, it is imminent and unavoidable, and it needs to stop. NOW! Right now.
