Training, Mindset, and Ability
What value do you place on the qualities mentioned above. What order of importance do they fall in your daily, weekly or monthly instruction, or do they at all? These are hard and fast questions one should ask themselves when they take up arms in defense of others. I've trained with all types of individuals, some who's ability in the training environment far exceeded that of their ability in the live environment. Some whose mindset in the live environment far exceeded that of their mindset in the training environment. So the question one should ask them self is, "How balanced am I as a practitioner of gunfighting, tactics or defensive action?" Some of the glaring issues with a lot of today's Law Enforcement professionals, as well as the 2a community of weapons handlers is the balance, the balance between Training, Mindset and the actual Ability.
