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.
