  1. Ban all machetes! <eye roll> In all seriousness, I agree. People are acting even crazier with the current state of the world. Be aware of what's going on and keep your tools close.
  2. Thanks for the feedback, Dave! I agree about being mindful about who is around when taking the shot (rule #4). The problem is keeping the attacker outside of the facility (ie. stopping them in the parking lot). This, given my typical distance to their potential cover, makes the RDS seem attractive (unless of course the event ever warrants closing the distance). Especially if my effective range shrinks due to adrenaline. Being able to threat-focus in this situation seems like it would be better. You definitely can't beat experience. I've never been shot at before. The closest I'll come to understanding my possible reaction is how I behave in force-on-force.
  3. Hey all! I'm part of a church security team and we do lot of training; including force-on-force/scenario. A lot of the time, I’m posted at an entrance to one of the facilities that is about 25 yards from a parking lot. This is about my max effective range at the moment with pistol irons and, unless things go to hell, none of us will be carrying carbines. Because of this, the idea of adding an RDS to my pistol seems like it may be a wise option. It would allow me better engagement at that distance and be more accurate dealing with the cover provided by the cars. The other option, which I know others already do, is to keep a carbine somewhere fairly close. Unless I’m roaming the parking lots, I’ll have access to proper cover at most of my post locations. However, retreating inside to retrieve a rifle allows the adversary time to get closer to the goal. And we all know how bad it becomes if they ever enter the facility. Thoughts from current pistol RDS users or others in the same decision path?
