Tam shows us a video of "firearms instructor" Matthew Temkin. Now I'm no expert, but if I didn't know better I'd think this was a joke.
Obviously there's no shortage of suckers out there, since apparently some folks actually pay him for this kind of "training."
If, god forbid, I'm ever in a situation where I need to use my gun why in the hell would I want to stand directly in front of my assailant and then walk towards him? That's just flat out moronic and defies all common sense.
I was under the impression that my handgun was to be used defensively to help me evade, create distance, and get out of a violent encounter. following Temkin's training achieves the opposite and, at least to this novice, seems like a good way to get shot. If you happen to survive the encounter it's also a great way to be seen as the aggressor by any witnesses.
What was with the whole "punch the guy before shooting him in the gut with your revolver" technique? How do you not laugh at someone recommending you do that?
That entire video is just made of fail. Thanks for the laugh Tam!
