Well, There’s ONE Thing We Have Going For Us…

Worried about ‘the authorities’ getting involved in civilian disarmament?  If NYPD is any example, and you are planning resistance to their plans…

The triggers are a major factor, but are not entirely to blame.  The NYPD apparently does not teach the Weaver stance, or at least, does not train in it to any standard of proficiencyIts internal documents admit that only about half of officers involved in shootings fired with any kind of two-handed grip.  As late as 1992, overall officer hit potential was only 17%, and only 28% at 3 yards–9 feet–and closer.
If this is true, then everybody involved in training needs their ass kicked.  C’mon, do you know ANYBODY currently teaching defensive handgunning who doesn’t teach some kind of two-handed hold?

You should go and read the whole thing (link – Firehand)

And take heart – when the SHTF you can throw it faster and with more accuracy than agents of government trained by bureaucrats.

I’m reminded of my IPSC days.  We’d have some hot-shot cops show up to compete with we lowly civilians.  Usually, after two or three sessions, we’d not see them again.  Because the civilians took their training seriously and weren’t answerable or trained by bureaucracies!

Of course, hopefully, this is all just fictional commentary, and none of us will ever have to know if it holds true for us.
