Interesting article by Michael Bane: "Understanding the Hammer"

"...I see more and more people who think that every solution to a self-defense problem is a "gun" solution...hey, that's what you're carrying! ..."

Understanding the Hammer

In this article, Michael Bane offers his perspective on a pervasive problem: thinking that every SD encounter is a shooting exercise. I've seen this myself in FoF training, and it's something we should all consider carefully.

Good article. It could have used a little more depth to illustrate the point but it's an important idea to get out there either way.
