P&S ModCast 16-1 The Unstoppable Jared Reston

Primary & Secondary ModCast 16-1   Speaking with Jared Reston about the incident he was involved in on 01/26/2008. http://www.restongrouptraining.com/   Things to consider: Why did he initially contact the suspect? What was his initial choice of weapon? Did Jared know the suspect was armed? How many shots were fired from both sides? How much time passed during the incident? What caliber was Jared hit by? How many times was he shot? Where was he shot? How has physical training assisted in his recovery?   Your argument for .45 ACP is invalid.

Weapons For Home Defense

The ability to protect ourselves and our loved ones at home is of paramount importance.  With this in mind it is best to understand the options available to maximize your effectiveness if you need to use deadly force in defense of yourself and your family while at home.

The Basics

I found early on the training I was provided as a police officer was insufficient for the tremendous weight of using firearms in the line of duty.  It seemed most of the training was to pass a qualification as opposed to expanding my skillset.  Even if the training was so mundane that we stood in one place and shot a slow cadence – it was still shooting and I enjoyed it. To make up for the lack of training, I would go to the range and shoot.  The part I did not understand at the time was all I was doing was ballistic masturbation.  I had no plan; I had no specific skills I wanted to focus on.  I didn’t even know what skills to focus on.  So, I wasted time, money, and ammo creating bad habits.  I could stand at x yards from a target, shoot, and hit a target – yay for me. Due to my unusual interest in firearms I was given the opportunity to go through the state POST academy to be a firearms instructor.  I was introduced to some teaching concepts which also gave me ideas as to what aspects of shooting I could focus
