Rob Pincus explains the benefit of carrying non-lethal defensive tools as an optional means of addressing a threat, along with a firearm. This practice has been strongly advocated by several instructors, including PDN Contributor Claude Werner, in order to allow you to defend yourself without having to escalate a situation immediately to lethal force when it may not be warranted. Electrical, chemical and impact devices all qualify as Non-Lethal Force Options.
Student alert! If your defensive firearms instructor is not giving you an integrated system of firearm manipulation techniques but rather a set of unconnected techniques that don't integrate well together, don't reinforce each other, and don't contribute to your efficiency by being consistent with one another, you need to challenge those techniques.Watch Now >>
