It’s looking even WORSE for us “armed citizens”…
You should already know that – if you’re ever forced to defend yourself with your firearm – you may also have to defend your actions in court, right?
When you do, a jury is going to take a hard, long look at how much training you’ve received and how often you practice.
That can be a double-edged sword…
I mean, the less training you do… the more it looks to a jury like you “just don’t care enough” about your legal responsibilities when taking a life…
But strangely, the more training you do… the higher the standard you may be held to for your actions!
In other words, you’ll be expected to have “known better” because you were “more trained”.
But wait, it gets worse…
Juries may now examine the TYPE of training you’re doing – and here’s the thing – your local gun range may be part of the problem, because…
Here Are 10 Gun Training Skills You Should Master… But CAN’T Get At The Range!
I know it doesn’t sound justifiable, but a recent court decision may suggest that without this training, you may even be held legally liable for the injury or death of someone in your line of fire (the criminal himself? a bystander? the neighbor who was sleeping in her bed across the street? a responding police officer?)
In Canton v. Ohio, the Supreme Court ruled against the city involved after a citizen was injured — because the responding officers hadn’t been trained properly for the situation they faced.
Police Are Now Being Held Legally Liable For How REALISTIC Their Firearms Training Is!
Now, I’m NOT saying that adding more “reality-based gunfight training” is a bad thing – because it’s actually frickin’ awesome!
However, police everywhere will be even more pressured to “do more… do better… with less funding”… and STILL come under legal scrutiny because their training doesn’t simulate the actual challenges they will deal with on the job.
But this doesn’t just affect cops… this also affects YOU – the armed citizen…
You see, even “experts” who can shoot a 1” shot group at the range are completely clueless on what to train for in order to defend against a home invasion.
And a prosecuting attorney could argue that if you had done more than just go down to the local range and practice target shooting at static, “square range” targets, the criminal “victim” may not have been shot like some paper silhouette.
Does that mean that if you shoot a bad guy who is trying to rob you… rape your wife… invade your home… or is just hell bent on murder… he could SUE YOU for being inadequately trained?
Stranger things have happened, and as we always say…
“Owning a gun is NOT enough!”…
You have to back it up with tactics… and realistic training for such gun-fighting skills as…
- Shooting on the move
- Shooting at moving targets
- How to use “fatal funnels” in your home
- Low-light shooting & flashlight use
- “Shoot – don’t shoot” decision-making
- Multiple attackers
- How to detain a bad-guy after he’s down
- Armed retreat to a “safe room”
- Fighting to a secondary weapon
- Simulated “stress shooting”
These are obviously NOT the typical type of skills you’re going to be able to practice at your traditional one-lane shooting range.
But are you seeking out this training from a local private range or searching for a national course that can provide you with these life-saving skills?
It may sound expensive, but face it… if you were to lose someone you love at the hands of some filthy meth-head who invaded your home, no amount of money in the world will bring them back.
Doesn’t it make sense to locate ways to master these tactics now while they can serve as your protection?
Your family’s lives could depend on it.
The Most Realistic “Gun-Fighting Range” Is Closer Than You Think…
What I’ve found is that you can actually train these skills better at home using “dry-fire training exercises“ than you can at any range because… well… it’s YOUR home, right?
Plus, you don’t have to pay all those high-priced range fees and high-ticket ammo prices (let alone travel to some remote location for a course).
But most importantly is the fact that these drills WILL make you a far better protector of those you love – even more so than those guys who are spending all their time down at the live-fire range.
This isn’t “target practice”… this is as close to the real thing as it comes… and it’s all done in your own home!
Trust me… you’ll never go back!
