Is there a site with info on real instances of SD with firearms?

Is there a site with actual events of SD with firearms? I'm curious to read about some and how they played out..

Yes

First if you search much of that is discussed here provided there was a teachable moment so to speak that could be discussed. Being Tactics and Training this area requires that for it to pass muster.

Also the NRA rag always has a colum towards the front with many instances of just those things. I can't think of the name currently however I'm sure someone will chime in and enlighten you further.

I believe it's called Armed Citizen - in American Rifleman

Alot of other mags have "It happened to me" sections - Combat Handgunner comes to mind. Could also try americanhandgunner.com/digital-editions/

This link has a lot of stories where people have used guns in self defense. They're geared more toward being a news article as opposed to the actual individual's first hand account.

Most gun forums have at least one thread with a title similar to "Have you ever had to draw your weapon in self defense" or along those lines. Usually these threads have a lot of good and interesting stories in them.

There certainly is such a site. Scroll down to the bottom for a hundred or so such articles.
