Because we could use some wisdom from the late Pat Rogers right about now.
“While shooting is relatively easy to teach, fighting isn’t. This is especially true for those who have never experienced an emergency, been in a fist fight and whose exposure to a fight is theoretical.”
“Just because you’re shot, doesn’t mean you’re dead. Just because you’re dead, doesn’t mean you’re dead right now. KEEP FIGHTING!”
“Trying to learn something by making mistakes is a poor way to go. You are in the middle of a million bad habits, and without having someone qualified to teach correcting you, you are just wasting time.”
“Seeking out a bulls-eye shooter to teach you gun fighting would be similar to having an ACLU lawyer teach CQB. Marksmanship when applied to fighting is 1/3 of the combat triad. Marksmanship when applied to bulls-eye competition is the end state. There is shooting competition and there is fighting. One is fun, the other isn’t.
