Held a knife on his terrified girlfriend
Hopefully this thread does not go the way of one some time back and get locked due to pi**ing match.
But here is a good story about taking the shot with a hostage being held and the importance of training and practice. Yes these guys where SWAT but it could be you standing there and no time for SWAT to get there.
Shots Fired: Reno, Nevada 07
This was inside a house most rooms inside houses are not much over 20 to 25 feet, 7-8 yds tops, most likely less. Can you make the shot? If not at 7 yds at what distance can you make the shot? Do you know? Why not? At least knowing at what distance you could make a shot like that if needed could be very important.
Yes the likely hood of a CCer needing to make that shot is slim but if it is needed it is needed now. So why not at least know where and when you could make it. It only takes time and a little ammo. Is your love ones worth it?
Yes I am one of those who pushes training and practice but even if you can only make that shot from 3 ft away at least know what distance it is.
