Did a little force on force training a few Saturdays ago. It was fun and educational to boot. We used Airsoft Beretta and 1911 replicas which was good for me as I own both and carry both on occasion so I was familiar with both platforms. By the way, the word “soft” in Airsoft is a misnomer. Nothing soft about them, they can leave quite a welt. What I pretty much took away from this was the old adage, “If you don’t have the gun in your hand when the trouble starts you will not have time to get to it before being injured or killed”. Even with it in hand in 21’ and the majority 10’ or less you will sustain some type of injury anyway even though you get shots off and on target. Your best defense is good situational awareness and keep moving away from your assailant.
