    Managing Conflict while armed

    Thereís always a lot of talking about firearms manipulation and shooting here, however, I donít think there is enough training on this topic.

    Its long, but much more valuable than page after page of caliber wars and shooting classes, imo.

    Good video, thanks. I think every person who goes armed should not only watch it, but believe it.

    Patience and long suffering is getting to be a lost art. Those videos are a great demonstration of what can go wrong. Enjoyed the clip about Audie Murhpy!
    Me: "..and that brings us back to the age old question, how much ammo should you carry or how much is enough, doesn't it? Lol "
    AzQkr: "
    The age old questions answer is carry more, not less. For if more isn't enough, less surely won't be. lol"

    Always thought de escalation skills should be a BIG part of CPL classes. Unfortunately, its not and neither are a lot of other necessary things. As to the nut job in Florida, I hope justice is served him. He already has given a black eye to a very good group of people. Another thing to keep in mind on the OC debate (that's never settled) is de escalation is seriously damaged if something is started. And no I don't believe it works as a deterrent.

    The best fight is the one you don't get in.

    Rory Miller, who some of you know is a career corrections officer and author has a good book "ConCom: Conflict Communication, A New Paradigm in Conscious Communication" It is about applying techniques used to talk convicts down from violent action to all kinds of conflict communication. It is not a smooth read, partially because of the uncomfortable subject matter and partially because of the way Miller writes, but it is great information that contains some effective strategies for deescalation.
