From Gander Mountain Academy, Rob Pincus talks about the safety pat down, one of the most important aspects of any scenario training, including training with video and laser tools, Simunitions, Airsoft, and marking cartridges. The safety pat down is a check to make sure no one is bringing any live weapons, including firearms, ammunition and blades, into the training environment. Rob likes to do this as a three-step process: a visual check, a verbal check, and a physical pat down. Don’t hesitate to do this last step – safety first!
