What about avoiding gunplay in the first place?
Was reading a post by Pax concerning women and weapons training and it got my mind going down a rabbit trail about men v women and how they differed when handling encounters and how they approach handling a threat.
ended up on wondering...
Who (instructors) here devotes any of there training time during weapon classes to actually avoiding the threat or in the case of a threat avoiding bringing the firearm into play?
after all proactive security trumps having to get into reactive security any day and IMHO if im carrying chump change and the guy got the drop on me, it might not be worth the hassle to test the reaction versus action theory and I think I might just chaulk up the loss to street tuition.
