Sounds like she's coming around to pro gun, she'll just be using someone elses. It's a start...................
LOL! that's what I was thinking when she said that.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he will sit on a boat and drink beer all day.

I'm a fan of both martial arts training and CCW.

Is martial arts training a replacement for having a concealed weapon? No.

Can martial arts help me avoid the NEED to use deadly force when facing someone with (for instance) a baseball bat, tire iron, etc? It may.
This is the problem with martial arts...people start to think things like "it trumps a bat".

Good luck with that.

Im all for H2H training,but it should be a last resort(after run and/or gun) against an armed attacker...or in the case of much bigger/stronger assailants(as with most woman-v-man scenarios).

I dont know of any martial arts that can give you the ability to smash bone and kill with an almost casual wave of the hand(despite what many practitioners may tell you).Even if they its now an even fight with the guy waving a tire iron?

Just FYI-i trained in multiple disciplines for the better part of a always "its better to have and not need...",but i wouldnt bring my fists to a knife fight,any sooner than a knife to a gunfight.
I'm moving on.Too many fudds,fanboys,and general silliness.

It's been fun(in part).

Martial arts are all about technique, not brute strength or size. An expert martial artist (of more than one style ) can disarm and take down an opponent considerably larger than him (or her) self. The gentle art of Judo, for example, teaches the student to use an opponent's strength and size against him. Against a gun? It depends on the element of surprise and how good the opponent is.

None the less, that doesn't seem to be the main focus here. What the main focus is, however, is more demeaning to women than not.

And that's the reason I'm closing this.

Restart this if you like (and in general, it's a good subject for debate), but let's leave the sexist remarks out of it, shall we?
TFL Members are ambassadors to the world for firearm owners. What kind of ambassador does your post make you?

I train in earnest, to do the things that I pray in earnest, I'll never have to do.
