Quote from Camar: "You have to have an agressive mind set while you undergo training. You can attend upteen gun classes, but if you do not have an agressive mind set you have wasted your money and time".
Quote from sliponby: "I see nothing wrong with this statement. If I'm taking a defensive firearms training class, aren't I learning how to fight with my weapon? It's not a square dance class at the community center..."
Agree, you have to put yourself in a mindset that even in training you are truly in danger. Aggression toward the target/threat is paramount because timidity, uncertainty, or hesitation could mean your life. If your mind is in familiar territory and you are analyzing the situation accurately, then greater chance you will act appropriately.
