:)  - I read in the notes that he said she was still working on footwork.  That was the second thing I noticed.


-the first was her coming dangerously close to (or actually) sweeping his right leg/knee with the muzzle s she came around on target.  .... -hope she has good trigger-finger control.


that said.  wow.

Appendix carry vs traditional strong-side carry is much akin to the 45 acp vs 9mm argument.

It'll never be settled on the interwebs but will always be fodder for verbiage. Choose what works for you and be happy. :up:


As to the video. Good on them!


We live in a 360 degree 3 dimensional world with people all around us.

We generally train (if we actually train at all) or practice/shoot (more likely) on a square flat range.


At least these folks are considering, and training, in a relatively realistic manner for a relatively realistic situation.


There are things that could, probably should, be done a bit differently...but they are at least training and learning. I applaud them for that.


The young lady has damn fine trigger discipline. When, if, we train, there are times that we will muzzle ourselves and others...we try diligently not to do so. But in a dynamic training scenario it's always a possibility.  But if your finger is not on the trigger until you've made the conscious decision to fire, the risk is mitigated to a large degree.


We all need to learn to move around people, dynamically even...because that will mostly likely be the situation you find yourself in when the balloon goes up. Use a dummy gun, blue gun etc. Learn to maneuver around others from a competent professional, and practice.


Recent study is demonstrating that physical contact ( actually touching or physically redirecting those that are with you) behind you or to the side, out of your line of fire, is working much better that having to mentally process verbal commands. Processing auditory commands under stress is problematic when "flight-fight-freeze" kicks in. Training and practice helps  immensely in these situations.



Just my unsolicited and ever devaluing $0.02 worth...



fwiw you may want to look into the training and material to be learned, information gathered, from folks like Craig Douglas (SouthNarc), Chuck Haggard (Agile Training) and our own Randy Harris. Their breadth of knowledge and experience is phenomenal.



edit: spelling...

I'm wondering, if the victim in this case has submitted to the perpetrator, basically giving him what he wants/asks for and is seemingly out of immediate danger and having the opportunity to withdraw from the confrontation as he does, couldn't he be viewed as the aggressor when he chooses to reengage?
