Ralph and I were discussing my recent training experiences at Plano’s Patriot Protection. I was bummed. My instructor instructed me to ditch my beloved Seiko. During nighttime ops, the chrono’s illuminated dial would alert bad guys of my location. “Are you kidding?” Ralph asked. “Criminals are morons, not ninjas. They’re looking for your TV not your watch.” So really, how much training do you need to repel a home invasion? It’s better to have a lot rather than not enough, right? Maybe not. Maybe there’s a level of training that gives non-operator-types false confidence, leading to fatal bravado. Whataya reckon?
