Watching this video of a nut with a knife getting perforated reminded me of this article I did last year. With the recent increase in general anarchy and POS high on drugs like PCP, make sure you guys are running drills like this on a regular basis. Never assume “Two rounds and assess” will do the job! Shoot them to the Ground!
Vids like this make me reassess my Combat Pistol Training.
A crazed nut with a butcher knife charges you.
You shoot him four to five times center of mass from a distance of less than 10 yards. He gets back up and charges you again.
I am not a Cop, but there were some questionable choices made here, the biggest one being why go to tazer after you have already shot him five times? You think Electricity trumps the Kinetic energy of a bullet? I mean it was already a lethal force incident, why go down a notch on the use of force scale when you and your partners life is on the line? He had a clear shot for like 30 seconds after he got up, empty the mag, reload and empty that mag if necessary!
At any rate, as an armed citizen it makes you consider the importance of “Shooting them to the Ground” every time, without fail.
Do you have a drill that practices this scenario? If not, rectify it now!
Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
