I thought OC scared bad guys away???
Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.
What a lot of pro OC guys doesn't realizes is that OC does paint a target. Do you think if the gun was CC if this would have happen? If you are going to OC then fine, but you have to admit that OCing put you at a higher risk.

If armed LEO's need this training then every concealed and open handgun carrier should have it also.
As is stated during basic LE academy training for the recruits : "Every situation you encounter is an armed encounter because you are bringing a handgun into it".
Up until a few years ago before the advent of todays security holsters one out of every five LEO firearms deaths was committed using the LEO's own firearm.
That ratio has been reduced because of improved training and equipment however it still occurs.

I agree. All folks need to train constantly. And if the reason one carries is for SD then they should also train on other means of defense. Combative s or what ever. But I hardly know anyone that carries that does more than go to the range and punch wholes in targets. I was going to start a poll to see what folks think is the percentage of people that carry (OC or CC) actually do train realistically and do other training. Whether it be combativies or just running or working out to stay in shape so you can defend your self. From my observation I would say less than 20 percent.
