Importance of Training

Dave Hardy talks about an interesting book on combat.  My favorite part of this post shows us the importance of training:

Necessities of training, because a person will drop back to their instincts (interesting case of an officer who constantly trained at disarming people by hand. Have someone hold a gun on him, and take it away from them, hand it back and repeat. He came face to face with an armed criminal, snatched the gun away from him — and handed it back. He survived the experience luckily.)

Ooops.   I guess instead of practicing giving the pistol back to the trainees, he should have pistol whipped them with it.   Of course, this would have probably impacted negatively on his career as a police trainer.
