Re: The Definitive Tactics Thread
Hey Good report there Nickbert, and strengthens the statement I’ve made before about mindset.
If your mindset fails you (you make a bad decision) then no matter your skills, or tactics, or equipment. You’ve already lost the fight.
Now admittedly the security guard made several lapses in good judgment, we don’t know why, and any specific thoughts on why is complete speculation on our parts. Here are my list of lapses in Judgment
- Did not call in to notify his security company of the person seen, nor request either police or additional security backup
- Drew his firearm without intent to use the weapon. Never draw unless you have already committed to firing your weapon.
- Searching the suspect, this is neither his responsibility, nor within his jurisdiction, in addition it allowed his opponent time to observe, then formulate an effective attack plan.
- fighting back with an asp when he’d previously drawn his firearm, shoot the son-of-a-bitch, if his attacker decided to attack after already seeing a gun, then whipping out a stick is not likely to have any great impact on the attacker.
- When the assailant went for the gun, then he should have immediately drawn and fired, not attempted to physically fight off the attempt at the firearm.
I’m sure there are several more, however it shows that being better armed does not mean that you have the ability to fight off a better mentally prepared assailant.
