This is a discussion on One of the best Active Shooter training/Tip vids I've seen. within the Defensive Carry & Tactical Training forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; ...
I would agree. Very good video! I personally like that they are preaching to get out if at all possible and not to just sit and hide.
Too bad none of the workers are armed.
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
Funny they didn't mention any improvised weapons like the fire extinguishers or letter openers or barricading the doors. The people in the training room just tipped one table over to hide behind and were dependent on the 2 people at the door to take out the shooter. There were 3 tables available to stack against the door.
Lets hope that's the day, good old jim the janitor of 30 year for gets to take his handgun out of him make shift gun/range bag on his last day of work before retiring. LOL
Good vid. Seems like a good presentation of what could actually happen. Bottom line is recognize the threat early and get out. I tried to mentally plan what I would do if this happened in my workplace.

Both great videos! Thanks for posting.

IF armed, get a wall to your back, take cover and ambush the SOB.
With out a gun. Grab what you can, and smash the BG in the face. This is JMO, but I do not like the idea of leaving people behind to be cannon fodder. I will find what I need to make a difference.
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
It's good in that it highlights some of the things we weren't aware of - that people will freeze and some people may get caught behind trying to get them to leave, and that others will run back in, all in a non-logical panic.
You need to include in your 'plan' the need to abandon people who won't flee responsibly after a couple attempts.
