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.
