    Less than lethal training

    Several yrs ago I started w/ my Mother on no-shoot personal defense situations. At 75 (now) she is an excellent shot for her age but there are far more incidents that do not require deadly force than those that go sour to the point of gunfire. Now there are 3 of us at the range that work on no shoot situations on a regular basis. This includes a lot of hollering. We get some strange looks. Outdoor range so we can do this.
    We actually take the things others have experienced or newspaper articles & train from there. Most can draw & fire your weapon from cover garment in probably 3.5 sec or so. How fast can you get to your pepper. Mom actually beat the socks off me here. When we started we all found that it took well over twice as long to get to pepper than gun. We had a hard time learning to deploy it. Now we even take the batteries out of cell phones & call the incident in. Be surprised how clumsey we were to start with getting them out & getting the 911 punched. We knew we were missing the #s some.
    This less than lethal training has reemphasized the truth that you will be reduced to your daily level of CONSTANT training. You will not only DO what you have trained to do, but you will say what you have trained yourself to say.
    We have now talked about adding the officer interview to the shoot incidents. This will give us the practice of IMMEDIATELY saying "I don't want to make a statement until I have talked w/ my lawyer."
    This has been as valuable as the shoot no shoot training.
    Carry 24-7 or guess right.

    Good idea to be prepared. Sounds like a fun day at the range.

    great idea and something we all probably need to work on. I think i'll practise my quickdraw cell phone triple tap right now.
