What's 2nd most important rule after owning firearm?
It is said that the first rule of gun fights is: Have a gun.
But almost as important would be the "second" rule: Don't come in second.
The decision-making process, however, needed to know exactly what to do and when isn't taught in public schools. And coming in second doesn't mean silver instead of gold; it often means a permanent change of address to something with "Memorial Gardens" in the name.
If you had to stop and think about what you would do faced with shots outside your door and what you would need to do with a gun, you need the "Armed Response" video training series from David Kenik and Ralph Mroz.
Among the topics covered:
What to do if strangers knock at your door.
The very first actions you must take after shooting someone.
Drawing a gun in close quarters, in a car or when seated behind a desk.
Getting your gun out of the holster and past your concealed carry covering garments.
When to challenge, and when to shoot.
What will happen to you under a "body alarm" reaction.
Order of shooting when faced with multiple assailants, and what you will have to do with your arms.
Protecting a third party.
Learning one-handed responses, which "seem to have some hard-wiring in our brain."
- And all of the precise types of actions you need to practice to keep your muscle memory acute and strong.
