I think that way too many people who carry a firearm treat it like a magic talisman or lucky rabbit’s foot, that it’ll protect them from whatever comes their way. This video shows why we constantly beat the drum at Active Self Protection for empty-handed skills and understanding the need to be able to earn your draw. That knowledge could save your life.

Original video of the armed robber taking a butt kicking: https://get-asp.com/8i34 The video is from the victim, who posted it for the world to see. Why are empty-handed skills so important for firearms users? 1. Empty-handed skills are absolutely critical for self-defenders. First of all, more conflicts you will encounter as a self-defender will require empty-handed skills than will require firearms skills, simply because more self-defense encounters are physical than deadly. Second, since a firearm is a tool of last resort, self-defenders need to have non-lethal options that include empty-handed skills to protect themselves from likely incidents. Third, in the moment of the encounter you may not have the time to get to your gun before you can fight your way to it. There are THREE additional lessons from this incident on our website, so head there for more: https://get-asp.com/xenw Attitude. Skills. Plan.
