    First Person Defender training vids on YT

    Just in case anyone is looking to further their training and education. If you haven't see this video training series check it out. It's called First Person Defender...it's a bunch of real world training scenarios along with expert instruction.

    I realize the trainee in the video is some kind of LE, and that parts of the video was cut and pasted so we don't get the whole thing.

    Having said that, if I were in his position as non LE, but armed, I think I would be inclined to not do anything except seek cover, escape if possible, and observe. I'm not totally happy with that answer, however, I'm not store security, nor am I responsible for the clerk's safety. I am responsible for my safety. If the weapon comes around in my direction, or I am being robbed, that changes things. I don't think that I would immediately jump to shouting "drop your weapon" and start shooting.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I can see the benefit of this kind of training for sure. In the training portion they did mention something about looking around after the shot, maybe that should have been a clue, but then again he probably got a lot of advice we didn't see so it's most likely unfair to say he missed that.

    I'm open to different opinions on my position.....

    They have a lot of videos covering may different situations some might or might not be applicable to your situation.

    As with any such training one has to learn to take away what one can use.

    Agreed! And I plan on never forgetting that. I've basically boiled down my response to defending myself or someone in my immediate party. Other than that, I would pretty much have to have seen the entire situation unfold in front of me before I get involved. As I said, I'm not entirely happy with that decision. Plus, I admit that one can not really say what one would do until you are in that situation. I'd like to think not, but it's possible I freeze with the exception of peeing my pants. Training like this would be eye opening I'm sure.

    You can get a free on-line taste of it with Implicit Association Testing at Project Implicit at harvard.edu https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/

    ETA: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Implicit-association_test

    There is a vast array of these tests that are primarily for self-discovery. The one on-point and that I found interesting and challenging is a shoot/don't-shoot exercise, with the target varying between black people and white people, some with a gun in hand and some with a not-gun in hand. The script loaded to your computer times your decision response to the millisecond.

    When I was associated with a PD I trained on their dedicated training devices, a training theater and a live fire range.

    Thank you for linking that. I have been to the site previously some time ago and was trying to remember it to refer to a friend recently. I bookmarked it this time.
