Ft Collins, CO --( We just finished a two-day Vehicle Defense Course down here in FL. Our “prop-car” was a Jaguar, of all choices!

Students brought both rifles and pistols, and we did many drills fighting from within, and around, the car. We also practiced getting in and out quickly, and in the correct sequence..

Driveways and parking lots are among the most dangerous places one might find himself in this civilization. Sitting in a stationary vehicle, in a parking lot, while not paying attention to your surroundings, is an unsafe activity indeed. Not recommended!

Fighting from within a vehicle with a rifle, even accessing the rifle in the first place, can be a daunting task, particularly in low-slung, “chic” vehicles. Dealing with seat-belts alone can be frustratingly slow and awkward.

In any event, our prop-car, now full of bullet-holes (some intentional, some inadvertent), made its exit from the Range about the same time we did, and all evidence of our weekend extravaganza was thus dispatched.

This is the kind of training I like to do, with experienced Operators, who regularly go armed and know how to run guns. This is training for real fighting, the kind of desperate fighting we’re going to see more of as our civilization continues to decline. The more errors and gaffes we correct during training, the fewer we have to deal with when we’re fighting for our lives and the lives of our family members.

There is a tinge of urgency among my students, as there is in me. We only hope we’re training hard enough, fast enough!

“Gunfighting has a strong biological use. We do not have enough things that kill off the weak and stupid these days. To stay alive as an armed citizen, a man has to be either quick with his wits or with his hands, preferably both. It’s a good thing!” ~ Robert A Heinlein, Beyond This Horizon, 1948

      I IMHO a better choice of words could have been used in your statement John…without trying to scare and sensationalize.. or using your own words taken from your web site–>a “precipitous over-reaction” when you made the following statement…

      —> “..the kind of desperate fighting we’re going to see more of (as) our civilization continues to decline….”

      How about “IF” our civilization continues to decline” John. Here is my Rant on this…please indulge my right to respectfully disagree…we live in the USA and we will make corrections as needed in a lawful manner according to the Constitution to preserve the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We must not go looking for the so called “Zombies” that do not exist nor should we feed the fire of discontent to preserve a delusional state of mind by some who seem bent on some sort of armed resistance. Way too many are just dying (pun intended) to say “I warned you…I told you so..” In IMHO the more responsible among us would rather lead us OUT of your “as we decline”. Chin UP and Carry ON…all is not lost.
