    Armed, should you engage?

    Neil and Kim at Geauga Firearms Academy put out some very educational/informative videos. This one Neil talks about as a licensed carrier, when you should engage a target and can you deal with the aftermath. It makes one think and we all know that there is a very short window for that when using deadly force.


    Hope you enjoy the video, and no, I have no connection with them whatsoever.

    Why would I ever engage? All I need is my double barrel shotgun and two blasts off the porch!

    We've got a hell of a lot more in common with the fellow citizens we're being trained to hate than the puppetmasters training us to hate them.

    Agreed, way back when I originally took my CCW class to get the license our class was a small group of experienced shooters. The instructor skipped the basic weapon part which at the time was half of the 8 hour course and we spent the whole time talking about the psychological aspect of being a concealed carry person and the choices that one must make and accept. It was time well spent.

    I hate to say it, but there area actually very, very few cases where I would step in to a fight for someone else.

    Same. Don’t like saying it either, but my carry gun is for myself and my family not for protecting everyone else. I’m not a cop or trying to be some badass running around to save everyone.

    To me it seems wise to remove myself from a situation if possible, and the gun is for when there is no other option or I feel I have no other option. At least that’s my states requirement.

    MY CCW class covered some of this. Someone you might think is an attacker might actually be a victim defending themselves.

    My Dad was charged with attempted murder for stepping between a woman taking a beating and what turned out later to be her pimp. I later understood that my Dad had to jump through some serious hoops to get the felony expunged from his record.
    So I tend to mind my own business.

    No good dead goes unpunished. I remind myself of that all the time.

    I have always had the mentality that me and mine are priority. Im not gonna protect anybody that didn’t take the steps to protect themselves.

    I carry, but it would have to be a really serious situation for me to intervene in a incident that's not involving me.
