So A Girl gets hurt and there is much drama surrounding it on the Blogosphere. Many have chimed in, some deriding, some praising. Well hey. Lets start here from my own experience. I teach new shooters 6 at a time on a indoor range. I teach CCH classes with a live fire test. I do everything I can to keep the students safe first, secondly myself. I weigh about 160 pounds soaking wet with a Colt Commander on my hip. Empty handed force on force training for me? Maybe not.
I do every thing I can to stay safe. Guess what. It does not always work out.
We make our choices. The fact she posted it speaks volumes. We learn from mistakes. Mine may not be as painful as hers, but she made the choice to do it. I applaud that. I say that "you don't know until you go".
My choices have not been as painful as hers, but I was not there when the attack happened that motivated her to take this path. Nor was I there when I see the people showing up for my Concealed Carry Class for whatever motivated them to be in class.
