Problem Solving on the Range: Realistic Engagement of Multiple Threats
Rob Pincus and Deryck Poole work with a student to develop the ability to train realistically for multiple threats. Too often, students on the range just swing between targets instead of training to break their focus on the first threat and truly assess their environment to find and engage any other threats.

Evolved Trigger Guard Devices as Holsters: Vanguard II

Seen this several times. It contains great info that can not be stressed enough. I was glad to see it again, and again and again….. Thanks!!
Skip Evade, Barricade, and Communicate. If someone turns up inside my house in the middle of the night uninvited I’m communicating with my shotgun.
I disagree about leaving your house. I live in a forest, I would have no idea how many are out there, or where they are.. I am going to defend where I know I am safe! I am increasing security all the time. I am adding motion detector lights in strategic places. Main exit door with an off switch. Don’t want to go out lit up.
Outstanding (short) video Rob…concise, well thought out, and to the point. Anyone who seriously contemplates home defense will/should quickly discover how many complexities there are. The folks that want to stand and deliver (versus a barricade option) may not be weighing things to their benefit (hmmm….they took my TV but I’m not spending 75K+ defending myself in court….that’s a good deal).
I tend to agree with Rob so long as your confident in tactics and firearms.
Many people are not. When someone invades your home you do not have to retreat, you have the right to confront with force if necessary. However, it might be a good idea to announce yourself, advise that your armed, and give them an opportunity to leave.
No really wants to be in a firefight.
SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT YOURSELF, YOU DON’T KNOW IF THE PERSON OR PERSONS ARE ARMED THEM SELF BESIDES THAY HAVE THE ELEMENT OF SUPPRISE YOU GO LOOKING FOR THEM IN YOUR DARK HOUSE THAY WILL KNOW THAT YOU ARE COMING TO LOOK FOR THEM WHEN YOU WALK DOWN A HALL THE FLOOR WILL GIVE YOU A WAY AND YOU DO NO NOT HAVE A CLUE WERE THAY ARE HIDDEN AND YOU WILL BE WALKING INTO A TRAP!
I don’t think much about barricading yourself into the bed room and letting the bad guy take all your stuff while you are hiding in your closet. I think you should arm yourself and then go to the home invader and defend your home and property by putting them out of action.
Amen,I agree 100% 🙂
Due to our Vice President’s errant advice on home defense tactics to hundreds of millions of people via numerous news outlets, I’d add a #6 tactic.. to never fire a warning shot! If you have to pull the trigger on your weapon, then shoot to stop the threat. Warning shots are only used by the military in limited circumstances, not by police, security guards or homeowners.
