Train Together--fight Together
We are both retired military,in our early 50's. We both have a good working knowledge of firearms mechanics and,ballistics. We are both as mentally prepared as we feel that we can get for a lethal confrontation(in it's civilian form). We almost exclusively,hunt together,fish together,go to gun shows together. Our wives are best friends and we go to shows together(all four of us),and go out to eat together. 90% of the things that we do,we do together. We both have a CCW license in the state of Fla. We both have chosen to carry Kimbers in .45ACP. His a 5" double stack(UGH!) mine a 3" single stack. We both have chosen to carry the same type of ammo. Needless to say we both feel the same way about the 2nd amendment and CCW. So one day I'm thinkin' --- Why not train together?? We have been doing this for about a year now. We both belong to the same gun club/range so we train together out there. Now that we have the basics ironed out we usually make a training day together at least once a week. More if it's rainy and we can't go hunting. We have thought out and talked about different sanerios. We have decided how we will confront the bad guy(guys).How we will position our wives in between us in case things get ugly.(Our wives don't carry.) Which target we will engage, when and how far we will let a situation go before we take an approiate ammount of action.We have made plans as to what we will do if we are(get) separated or injured. Basically the wives will always be protected first and formost. I will die for his wife and he for mine. Ugly---- but you just gotta talk and think about this and try to get as "prepped" as possible. I am fully aware that we cannot train for every situation but we have put allot of thought into this and hopefully the situation,as bad as it may(will) become will come out in our favor. I was just wondering if any other people train in this manner and we could share ideas and info.
