First Hand Account of a Four Time Successful Self Defender
If you were robbed 4 times, you would take action - wouldn't you?
This man owned a jewelry store that was robbed not once, but four times, eventually forcing the owner to move locations and turn into an appointment only store. His story is incredible and just goes to show you can’t trust the robber in front of you and being an armed defender is safer than being an unarmed victim.
The only one responsible for your safety is you
Who do you trust more, the armed robbers, cops 15 minutes away, or the gun at your side?
“Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.” (source)

I don't consider myself a competition shooter - I think of myself as a performance pistol shooter. I am all about performing at as high of a level as possible. Towards that end, I am obsessive about learning how to perform. I spend a lot of my life learning from the best across the entire firearms world and even into other areas of performance and other sports. I am a USPSA Carry Optics Grandmaster, currently working towards my second GM title in the Open division.
