When it comes to staying alive during a defensive gun use, you must master two basic manuevers: moving and shooting. There are a number of situation specific variations on the theme. Shoot and move. Move and shoot. Shoot then move. Move then shoot. I think that just about covers it. Of course, it helps to have an idea of where you’re going, so you can know which way to move: forwards, backwards or down to the ground. Simunition training is ideal for armed self-defenders who want to learn how to shoot while locating and/or using cover during an adrenalin dump. Meanwhile and in any case, whenever you enter a new environment—whether it’s Whataburger or Raven Aultman‘s favorite gym—look for some place to go if something goes wrong. That way, if you suddenly need to get going while the going’s good you’ll know a good place to go.
