    Another thoughtful post from Claude Werner on what priorities we should be thinking about when it comes to self-defense training.

    “Some instructors, including myself, had an interesting discussion on Facebook about the phrase "once you can shoot."
    My question to the group was ‘What does that mean?’ I asked it as a serious question. The personal journey I’ve made in answering that question over time has been interesting. My answers to myself about it have changed dramatically as a result of some related research I’ve done. The two most significant areas of research were Negative Outcomes and what higher level thinkers in the POlice community had to say.”

    You can read the rest of Claude’s post at his blog.

    Havung clicksd on the link, but not the Patreon post, I thought of this: wouldn't it be better to say 'once I have to shoot' rather than 'once I can shoot'.

    And having seen the Patreon post, I was wrong. What it referred to was the relevance of police training to much of civilian self defense. Also I gather that he and I are pretty much thre same page concerning 'accuracy vs precision', to wit: in civilian self defense shootings, accuracy is needed biut great precision is not.
