One needs to know self and training, then comply and trust them or take charge and trust your ability. Something we all must choose on our own. For me I have more control over my ability than I do over what they do, guess I am a control freak. I guess for me its better to go out trying than lying there in a pool of blood watching them do thing to my family after they make the choice for you.
Ability comes with training that's why I have done the training I have and will continue to train. My family is worth it. Not only does one need to learn gun and fighting skills but also to get the feel of just what one can and can not do in a gunfight. That ability changes with the amount and kind of training one gets. If you do not feel that you can win the question is do you want to be able to? If so then do what it takes.
Have you ever tried taking on 3 BGs in a fight? Since most of us have not and will not ever be in a real gunfight, plus being in the real gunfight is the wrong place to try out your training because there if you lose you die. Have you done any FOF training? Great for testing your ability and training. Learn what you need to improve on and what already works that you have under your belt.Quote:
You mentioned in your post about hopeless. To me having 3 bg's in your house with guns pointed at you and your family (right by your family none-the-less) while you are lounging in condition white on your couch with your gun fully holstered, no cover for you and/or your family nearby..... that's pretty darn hopeless in my book. It is nothing more than my opinion but if we were in the same exact shoes as the victims in the video, anything but complying at the beginning would make a bad situation worse for my family.
AOK, none of what I have posted is directed at you but in general as something we all need to think about. I'm just using your post to comment on and hopefully make some good points.
Again to each his/her own!
