More on Self-Defense

Brillianter has two more good bits on handgun retention, and verbal commands.  Verbal commands is one area I never really worked on, and probably should if I’m going to carry a pistol for self-defense.  Despite the fact that I never shut up here, I’m not the most vocal person you could ever know in person.

    I do believe we have a winner for understatement of the year. ;)

    Verbal commands are part of any good training class. You may well end up horse by the end of the 2nd day at some of them.

    All the points from brillianter are good ones.

    If you can create hesitation then you can create more distance, which is more time and more options. The point about witnesses is also very valid and I seldom see it mentioned outside of defensive shooting classes.
