Whew! A Home Invasion Survival Class
Believe me when I tell you I ache all over right now. I hope I will be able to get out of bed tomorrow morning! Today and tomorrow I am participating in a Home Invasion class. This class is offered by Rochester Personal Defense. If you own guns and live in Western New York, google them. You'll be doing yourself a favor by taking a few of their classes. I have taken a lot of classes from them over the years and I highly recommend them for firearms training, personal safety, and other areas of personal defense.
Dave Jenkins, the owner of RPD, brought in a phenomenal trainer who has served in the Air Force and other areas of Law Enforcement.
We learned such things as how to overtake the bad guy when he has a gun pointed at your head or if he approaches you with a gun pointed at you. These are simple steps that anyone can execute. Awhile back I took Defensive Pistol 201 and I thought that one was rough. Some people in today's class had big cuts on their hands and wrists. . . I didn't get into it quite that intense! But my wrists and hands ache right now. I was knocked against a wall a couple of times today too.
No, we didn't use real guns. We had plastic dummy guns.
I wish I could be more specific about the training but, understandably, you don't want things like this publicized. The element of surprise against a bad guy is your strongest defense.
I am proud to mention the number of women carrying guns in New York State has risen dramatically in recent years. One of our local TV stations did a report on this a couple of weeks back and the numbers are staggering.
