A Tale of Two Guns…
January 19th, 2009
Too many people think that simply having a gun is all you need for protection when you hear breaking glass in the middle of the night.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Simply having a gun is not enough.
You must first have the mindset to use the gun without hesitation to defend your life and then have the ability to deliver life-saving hits on your opponent under the stress of a lethal encounter.
Here are two contrasting videos that prove you need more than just a gun…
Watch this video of an interview with an elderly lady who had the proper mindset to use the gun and did everything right.
Now watch this video of a young man who lacked the proper mindset and did everything wrong.
Note his occupation, his admission that he always has a gun with him, and his understanding that his life was in danger, yet he lacked the mindset and the ability to do what was required and it cost him. He is dumb lucky to be alive.
Now who do you want to be? The elderly lady who had the mindset to use the gun if she had no choice, or the young man who should have known better but had never truly made the decisions in his own mind as to when or under what circumstances he would use the gun that he had been carrying?
In our courses we teach Moral and Ethical Decisions in the Use of Deadly Force.
We advise you to make the very personal decision regarding when you are willing to use deadly force in advance of a lethal confrontation, because when it is your turn to defend your life or the lives of your loved ones, you will not have the luxury of TIME to debate the decision in your mind.
You will act or, in most cases, react based on the decisions you have made and the level of training you have received; you will only be half as smart and half as good as you were in your last training session due to the stress of the lethal encounter.
If you hesitate in making the decision to press the trigger on your adversary, the results can prove fatal to you and those around you.
Come out to Front Sight for training that will give you everything you need to develop the mindset and skills to defend yourself and your loved ones against random acts of crime like the ones that you have witnessed in these videos. They appear to be occurring with more and more frequency recently.
As these two videos prove, you need more than just a gun….
