BG training/tactics

This is a discussion on BG training/tactics within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I don't think it really matters what kind of training the average mugger has. I'm not sure you'll get to pick who will choose you ...

    I don't think it really matters what kind of training the average mugger has. I'm not sure you'll get to pick who will choose you as a victim. As for insight on what kind of people make up the criminal side, I'd suggest you pick up a copy of 'Meditations on Violence' by Rory Miller. Schedule a seminar with him if you get the chance. The man has had a ton of exposure to bad people.
    Put in your time for training and do your best to avoid shady locations where bad things are likely to happen.

    Kudos to niks for his Street Robberies post. Very interesting.

    So it would seem that the mugger does not study grip, stance, sight picture, moving while shooting. He cares not for caliber, recoil, reliability or manufacturer. His only advantage is surprise, intimidation and the chutzpah to attempt. He banks on the probability that his prey is a peaceful citizen and will follow the advice of liberals to submit.

    Now, I have "discussed" training with many over the eight years I have had my CHL. The disagreement is always what kind of training and from whom to take it. This a topic for another time, but I have taken comfort from niks's post that I am OK with what I do: draw fast and shoot center mass. Thanks to all for your thoughts.

    My 'assumption' is that they dont give a damn.

    They're already breaking the law and they dont care about backstops or innocent bystanders.

    They can just spray and pray and take their chances. They dont have to take the time to consider the 'consequences' of their actions...again....they can just start attacking or shooting.

    Time is everything in such encounters and I am also not someone who believes that most BGs are dumb enough to fall for the 'thrown wallet' trick. No way would I risk my life on that particular 'tactic.'
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    My bet is that some might fall for the tossed wallet trick. The rest would fall for the tossed money clip (with visible 50$).

    Some mice like creamy peanut butter.... But they all fall for extra chunky in the trap.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose
