New video of the London knife attack shows the inside of a restaurant as the machete-wielding terrorists tried to enter. Check out the guy in the white jacket peering through the window at the killers outside. WTF?
Always remember that a defensive gun use is a counter-attack. If you’re not running for your life — a sensible option — or barricading yourself, be prepared to attack your assailant(s).
A gun is a wonderful tool for an effective counterattack. So make sure you have easy efficient access to your firearm at all times. As I’ve said before, your ability to bring your gun to bear on attackers is more important than the type of gun, caliber or accuracy.
Rapid, efficient presentation isn’t a thing. It’s the thing. And don’t forget: one-handed presentation is a highly likely scenario, especially if you have kids. So practice that, too.
That’s a big part of the “speed” part of “speed, surprise and violence of action.” The surprise part is well worth remembering. As I tell my unarmed child before dropping her off at school, run or ambush.
Violence of action is self-explanatory. When you attack, go all in. Hold nothing back. Use whatever you can — as some of the patrons of another restaurant did — to disable the bad guy(s).
Above all, don’t be that guy. The one who stands there like a lemon (British expression) when sh*t gets real. Get off the X.
