  • Reasonable force with a firearm, when should I shoot?
    soldiers cannot shoot another human So what are they armed with Well it may be a 22LR semi auto a little pee shooter it may be a knife it may be a baton or a club Am I justified in shooting Basically any firearm from a 22 to a 454casull is capable of killing you The same applies to a man with a knife With a gun holstered and a knife wielding or sword wielding person who means you harm within 20 feet you are at a disadvantage How long do you think it takes you to draw a gun How fast can they close that distance It has been shown again our thanks to the Americans who really get into this stuff that a person with a knife can cover 26 feet and stab you in the time it takes to draw and shoot from a holster So are you better off using your hands to deflect them again the choice is yours There are gun techniques for close combat such as would occur in this scenario One of the easiest is rock and shoot whereby you palm the offender with your non master hand to their face hard as you do so you draw with your master hand rotating the barrel towards them as it clears the holster and fire as you point in their direction You continue to fire untill the threat no longer exists This also applies to the person who has knocked you down and is starting to beat you to death Are you in fear of your life Then defend yourself Rock and shoot can transition into another technique known as a failure drill What if I m shot myself YOU ARE NOT DEAD IF YOUR STILL THINKING fight back Shock will slow you

  • selecting a firearm, what is the 'right' gun for security or the bodyguard role?
    cylinder and cocks the hammer just before a continuation of the squeeze allows the hammer to fall striking the pin which in turns strikes the primer causing the round to go off Some semi automatics are double action single action These may have an exposed hammer that is cocked on the squeeze of the trigger for the first shot then remains cocked after the slide action for follow up shots Some semi automatics such as the Glock system do not have an exposed hammer at all On the subject of Glock s They are similar to the revolver in that they have no manual safety They have a two part trigger whereby both the inner and outer sections must be squeezed together to fire the action Now this sounds uncomfortable but you won t notice it They have various weights in triggers from the industrial one s selected by some police departments which don t allow accuracte shooting but which they argue don t allow accidental shooting Why someone would be pointing a gun at someone and accidentally shoot them is something I don t want to know about Glock manufacture some nice light triggers on their competition long slide weapons such as the 17L Whilst not as nice a feel as other manufacturers products with exposed hammers they are tough high capacity and can be fitted with good sights and numerous attachments You also need to select a suitable calibre and ammunition Some jurisdictions set minnimum and maximum calibres for weapons Check what restrictions you have locally You don t need the biggest If you can shoot a 9mm accurately and comfortably why get a 45 If you find that a 38special p suites you why go for the big loads in 357 Magnum Even a 380 semi automatic

  • What holster is suitable for security guards or bodyguards?
    is often access To carry a firearm in public unnoticed is a bit of an ask at times Shoulder holsters are good when you can wear a jacket Ankle holsters and little 5 shots snub nosed 38special 357 alloy revolvers are good but slow on the draw The velcro holsters available for those are comfortable and discreet A behind the hip carry in a holster for a small semi automatic is probably the best if you can Carrying a handgun tucked in the back of your trousers without a holster is for emergencies and wannabe s You don t need a cannon unless your in a third world country where people really don t like your principal You need sufficient A balance between firepower and size Bum bag holsters are sometimes too easy to pick but still good for concealed carry with quick drawing ability Backpacks suffer from the same problem of poor access generally For the women there are specially designed and designer shoulder bags A gun in a brief case is also useful It also allows a full sized weapon to be carried but drawing it quickly is a problem The suitcase may also be manufactured from bullerproof material MP5K s lend themselves to fitting in a suitcase able to be fired inaccurately using a trigger in the handle can fit a lazer as well to assist with sighting or as a small machine pistol with two 15 shot magazines clipped side by side in a shoulder holster the one in the picture has a full sized magazine Now probably more important from a practical view is a small torch and a large torch The small torch is a pocket sized one taking something like two AA batteries It lives in your pocket The larger torch is something
