I'd probably have shot them all, to prove to a judge that I was under threat of more than one, and to see to it that they didn't bother anyone else.

I have no idea how Id react in a situation where I have to defend my life. I care never to find out. I do train for defensive situations. Not for any one particular scenario but for the overall skill. I do not agree with the OPs thoughts but I also dont disagree with him for having his thoughts. He has clearly put a lot of time and though into his argument. That being said, one thing is for sure. No one is better preparing themselves by sitting on a forum arguing "what ifs". If it happens, I only hope my gods and instincts keep me alive. Better yet, I hope they keep me far away from any trouble in the first place.

I'm interested in this force on force, think I'll do a little research into it and see. This sounds like the right type of training!

Shows my concept of training, when starting this thread, was a little linear. This is exactly why I pose these types of things.

I don't get it maybe its a American thing all this training. I know people here that go to the range for fun some would do competitions IPSC for example. But I don't know any that train in case they are attacked.

I'd venture to guess that most people don't actually "train." I think it's just that the ones that do are more likely to frequent sites like these, possibly making it seem like a lot of gun owners are very interested in training opportunities.

Fair point. I shoot some competitions for enjoyment that would help your abilities with a firearm.

I compete and have guns BECAUSE I want to be able to defend myself ultimately well. I've held men at gunpoint 4x, and wished I had a gun as many more times, and came within a second or so of drawing as many more times, but something intervened,or the guy could tell from my demeanor that he'd better NOT push it any further. I've had to deploy guns vs dogs a few times, too.

yes, it's good, the airsoft stuff, if you can get people to do it without an airsoft of their own, because most attackers don't have a gun. so the attack will be physical, swift, from very close. few gun people have a clue how fast they need to be. also, when the attacker does have a gun, he won't have a clue how to use it. training with others who do know what to do gives false data. Punks don't know a thing, except that they KNOW that they'd better not try to shoot from more than about 10ft, and they'd better fire lots of shots, really fast. few gunowners are ready for that, either.
