To be fair, Prevent Violence also campaigns against child abuse, domestic violence, rape etc… I’ve got to wonder though, are they not blaming people in that too? Like maybe if someone was hitting their child with a extension cord do you blame the cord? Ban extension cords!
Every time I hear some cop shot a gun out of a suicidal person’s hand I am struck with disbelief that they actually ever attempt that, and secondly I think of the clip above from the 1997 movie The Jackal.
This is the part that surprises me:
“Shadbolt was in the process of trying to negotiate with the subject when the subject suddenly posed a threat on the constable and he disarmed the subject,” he said.
So this guy who you think wanted suicide by cop, raises his gun to shoot you (or “pretend to”), and your first though is OH I SHOULD TRY AND SAVE HIS LIFE? Yea, I guess this guy is a better man than I am, because I personally would rather just put one in his chest and go home have a beer, eat a nice supper, and guarantee that I live to see another day.
Finally! A practical pistol disarming drill on YouTube:
The ante should be upped with either simunition, paintball, or airsoft… preferably one that hurts the most. That way they would learn quickly what a dumbass stunt this type of thing is. From the YouTube description, it is apparently called called “Kapap”.
This looks like something from the movie Equillibrium where that guy “disarming” would attack one of them in the circle, and they would all end up shooting each other.
Anyone practice this type of thing? Better yet, have you used it successfully on an attacker?
I’m not sure why only one of you thought to contact me directly (and thank you for contacting me so I could defend myself). I am not hiding behind anonymity. My website is on the video. My address is on the website, as are my hours of operation (see “schedule” link). I invite any and/or all of you to visit. Bring an Air Soft pistol you don’t mind being destroyed. I actually HAVE done all the moves on the videos using Air Soft pistols. I’m betting none of you has. Anyway, they’re only good for one or two disarms, so you might want to bring several. I have a camera here and it will be running, but you may also bring your own. Regardless of what happens, I think we’ll all have some interesting footage to study and publish on our websites. If you can debunk any of the claims I make, I’ll reimburse you for your air travel. If not, then you pay your own. Either way, we’ll all learn something. Also, in the spirit of honest, objective combat training, I’ll also agree to serve dinner to everyone who participates. I’ll also put you up in my own house, where concealed carry is definitely allowed. We can debate combat tactics while we grill out or something.
I wonder how many people get shot every year attempting something this stupid:
LOL the attackers gun might be booby trapped?
Note to self: Pack the slide, and rack the action if I decide I want to used the gun against the attacker.
I really wish they would start using airsoft guns (at the very least) to show how the attacker is likely going to be able to get multiple shots off, and not just easily have the gun twisted from his hand.
