Should you ever become involved in a self-defense shooting, whether it be on the street as a concealed carry holder, or in your home defending yourself and/or your family, one of the prime elements in which both prosecutors and defense attorneys will be keenly interested once you've gotten past the basic "what happened"... will be your training. They'll more than likely be looking at three key elements; the recency, frequency and 'real-life' value of your training.
One of the best ways to hone your defensive perception and awareness in shoot/no shoot situations is through using the same technology used by the military and law enforcement... real-life videos shown on a 108" projection screen where the student shoots with a SIRT laser Glock.
My daughter, a police officer, calls it "gangsta" style. Others have called it "Extreme Weaver"; I call it our "Advanced Pistol Combat System".

It's been a year since the Gabby Giffords shooting in Arizona. I can't believe how many times I've read posts related to this shooting (and others) where folks have said something like "If there had just been one good person there carrying a gun... things would have been different. Well, while they certainly might have been different, there is no guarantee that it would have been different in a good way.
