    Agreed, and looking for a "tailgunner" in sheeps clothing is added to the toolbox because of your input. Thank you!

    You seem to have darn good situational awareness & a sharp brain.

    If you're talking to me, I can't accept credit not due me; sometimes I think there's not an orginal shooting/self-defense thought in my mind. Seems like all my awareness, tactics, etc. come from lots of training but I will admit to being a very good student.

    For me training has been an eye-opening experience. If it's true that you learn from your mistakes, then I should have learned a lot cause I've sure made enough mistakes in training. The good thing about making the mistakes in training is that you get to go home at the end of the day, instead of the hospital or morgue.

    One of the biggest lessons I have learned from FOF scenarios is that a gunfight or a gunfight situation is NEVER, NEVER what it appears to be. And the best course of action to survive is avoid it in the first place with awareness and the next best course is E&E - evade and escape and yep, that means sneak out if possible. Not original thoughts, but stunning, stinging, lessons from training that have been, shall we say, strongly impressed upon me.

    In a debriefing after a FOF, a student asked the instructor what he thought was so funny in the student's drill. He said it was just amusing watching two BGs and one GG standing toe to toe seeing how many times they could shoot each other. I wasn't the student, but the mental image of that really impressed me. The drill was designed to illustrate what can go wrong when you intercede on someone else's behalf. Well, the student saved the victim all right, because the BGs ran out of ammo shooting the GG. It's just never what it appears to be so be very careful with you life - you only get one.

    We become what we (in any way) manage to take in and absorb and commit to useable memory and then make available for practice and real life reaction. I have this amazing ability to know when people actually know and understand what they are talking about and I think you are a bit too modest.

    But I will add that I hope you (or any of us) never have to find out firsthand.
