The new dog is a ****ing monster.
They use them to hunt pigs.
She's a damned hunting pitbull!
The old guy never barks unless something is going on, but even the pup has special barks. We can always tell when she's yelling at the stink kitty (skunk) or a stranger as opposed to the crews from the water department that she loves but has to chase their trucks.
I don't know for sure if either would actually DO anything, but they certainly look and sound like they would!
1) outshoot the police officers
2) demonstrate better gun handling skills and safety than the police officers
3) understand the use of force better
Having trained both groups extensively, I agree with him
Son, you don't know what you're talking about. I say that without meaning it ill, it is just that that statement makes it obvious you lack experience.
I hope you don't find out the hard way. Let me see if I can help you avoid painful misunderstandings...
I trained specifically in gun disarms, then put hundreds of hours into mastering the techniques. One of the things I do when I teach a class is show this skill off, taking guns away from people who don't think I can do it.... but then the next thing I do is teach them how to prevent even an expert from disarming them.
I spent a lot of time training disarms. I am very good at it. Furthermore I have real world experience, and have been on the wrong end of various things that slice, dice or go bang. However, I do not consider disarms a preferred method of defense, .... because it is mighty damn risky in the real world.
Also, assuming someone who packs heat has little or no HTH skills is quite a big assumption.... and you know what happens when you assume, especially when life and death are on the line.
Save the disarms for showing off in the dojo, and for last-ditch desperation IRL. The best defense against a weapon is a better weapon, period.

My wife is a red belt and competes in sporting clays, archery and bird hunts. My son got his black belt at 12, does knife patterns, shoots at least 5000 rounds a year out of pistols, hunts around the farm with a 22 or a bow and bird hunts with a shotgun
True, I guess you don't want to bet money that your assailant has no practice seeing as how there is the military. Good points.
I buy a bunch of these things every year and give them to cop friends
