    A few things I learned from FOF training

    1. Sights on an edc gun are optional. Didn't see them for two days.
    2. Some form of simple, reactive h2h skills are not optional.
    3. Effective movement is not an option...move or die.
    4. Speed kills.
    5. Adrenaline is a double edged sword.
    6. I don't always need my gun to defend myself.
    7. Knives are nasty.
    8. I'm glad I practice one handed garment clearing and drawing.
    9. Good proffesional instruction is well worth the price. Thanks to Terry of T.H.E. Firearms Training, Will Farrugia and Simon of Florida Firearms Training.
    10. I must practice the skills I was taught.

    These are just a few. If you carry a gun for self defense, and you can only afford one class, you should strongly consider FOF training.

    Luis50,

    Welcome to the real world.
    Re: #8 One of my dislikes of AIWB and the necessary closed front garment, is that I have seen few people who could accomplish it with speed, one handed.

    Glad you were able to attend a force on force training. It will definately bring out your strengths and weaknesses and show you what you need to work on and also how fast things can get ugly.

    You came away with some very good concepts of a real fight. Things that most will never get because they refuse to go to FOF and take the punishment that comes with it. I agree that this is a class everyone who carries should take. Also should be taken again and again to test what you are training and learning in the future.

    Guantes, I carry AIWB and I wonder if what you don't like is the closed garment. I see no difference with the one hand draw from AIWB or from the hip with the closed garment. But either way I'm satisfied with the draw speed. I have never put it to the test but feel I would be in the game with a open front garment carry on the hip.

    Just me!

    Bill,
    Probably so. If it works for you that is what matters. I am admittedly a speed freak.

    i'm glad that #8 was brought up, you see on tv and some these "how to" videos folks using two hands (1 to clear the cover garment and the other to draw) and i would guess if you had to draw in a hurry it would be good odds that one hand is all you will have
