YouTube is lousy with how-to gun disarmament videos. The Rabbi spied this one with his little eye and it pleases him not. He writes: “Gun disarming techniques work, but do take a lot of practice. And yes, they can be done fast. I teach them as a last ditch effort because they are dangerous. Given that the attacker’s finger will be on the trigger, the gun will probably go off. If you step offline as part of your first step, it won’t be you that gets shot, but it might be someone else if they are in the wrong place. If you think you are about to get shot and there are no other options, disarm. I am not fond of the particular technique shown as it relies on hitting a small location on the wrist. Works well with a cooperative training partner, but perhaps not so much when it’s real. Also, never use your assailant’s gun against him as you don’t know the condition of the weapon. It may not even be real, may not be loaded, may be jammed, etc. Proper technique is to disarm, then draw your own firearm.” The wider lesson: find a gun guru you trust and then remain skeptical. Find what makes sense, question it without fear or favor, make sure the recommended techniques work for you and practice. Then be prepared to do it all again if/when you find something better.
