“The good man need not think beforehand of his words,
that they may be sincere, nor of his actions that
they may be honorable ... he simply speaks and does
what is right.” -- Mencius, 372-289 B.C.
     If you read after action reports,
you will see that righteous self defense
shooters don't contemplate before shooting. 
They instantly shoot because they are scared
for their lives or the lives of their loved ones. 
Good people do all of their thinking and
training long before the incident.

"Self-Defense Checklist" by Mike Seeklander

     Yes, weapons training is last on the list.
We have to get our priorities straight.

***** Training *****

     "The average American has more misconceptions
about lethal force in the home than in any
other self-defense situation." -- Massad E. Ayoob,
"In the Gravest Extreme", 1980, 22nd Printing.
     That's why expert training is so important.
Much of what the untrained person knows is false.

     Parents often ask me what the age limit of
my classes is.  I always respond, no age limit.
If you think your child is mature enough, I
concur.  My kids did the 4-day Defensive Handgun
class at Front sight at age 14.  Here's a 10 year
old girl happily competing,
Can you believe the Communist News Network published
this?  They must be desperate.  (Oh, right, they are.)

"How to Not Get Shot: The Ten Secrets of Shot Avoidance"
By Lt Williams
"If you are armed, every conflict you are in is
an armed conflict!  You know there is at least
one gun there.  It is highly possible that the
gun will be taken away and used against you.
It happens to trained police officers with
Level III security holsters on heavy gun belts
on a tragically common basis."
"After the Action" by Chris Fry
     Yes, you can get shot without knowing it.

     This is exactly what the Soviets did,
declare you insane and imprison you in a
mental institution.  Now, the New York government
is doing it to their pro-gun residents.
