When an Officer Shoots another Officer

Hand Gun Training

Recently I read an article on officer.com about Blue on Blue Shootings.

How does the police officer, when faced with the situation of a pedestrian in possession of a gun, know when to use lethal force?

The knee-jerk reaction of most would be to draw your sidearm, point and fire.

But that’s not always the best decision.

Read this article about how you can use discernment when dealing with this kind of situation.

Train Often and Stay Safe!


It is very easy for those of us who have had to stop training for a while for one reason or another, to see ourselves as if we were at our peak performance. We visualize ourselves as undefeatable. We have the expectations that we can defend ourselves against almost anything at anytime.

What we must realize is that our reality has more to do with our level of training  than our mental expectations. While it is good to employ creative visualization, we also need to keep up-to-date and maintain our physical skills. A life or death situation is not the time to discover that your control & defensive tactics skills are not at the level of your expectations. Consistant and continual training is key to having a calm mind amongst chaos.

The use of Ground Defense for the security professional, martial artist, or civilian
