    This situation scared the shit out of me, and made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end.

    Sit-rep on video: A police sting goes wrong, and the undercover cop gets held at gunpoint while the perp demands that he be taken somewhere in the vehicle. The cop, presumably knowing that if he complies he would be in grave danger without his backup, verbally stalls for what feels like an eternity until backup arrives on scene. Looks like the perp has a Colt 25 or some other super compact auto.

    Edit: embeding video doesnt seem to work, here is the link.

    I dont conceal carry myself, yet, but this kind of situation would be anyones worst nightmare. A close encounter where even though you are armed, even the slightest move for a weapon would have resulted in disaster.












    Oh and did anyone else cheer for the good guys when the backup finally arrives and the undercover cop yells "yeah bitch!"

    :rofl:

    The video is "Police Sting Gone Bad" so if you search that it should come up.

    I haven't watched the video yet but if someone was in my passenger seat with a gun, my first priority would be to get the gun pointed in a different direction and out of his hands (some Krav Maga type stuff) and go from there...

    Close quarters is actually preferable that 6 feet for a gun struggle.
    It's nervy, but stripping a gun from a perp is covered extensively in the academy + in advanced courses / ongoing training.

    OP said the idea of being in close quarters with a gun drawn on you. You can't really reach for your pistol unless you're trained to disarm someone.

    I'm not sure what I would do in that situation. Maybe get on the freeway and attempt to roll it into the median. :dunno:

    I had a chance to train in Systema/SAMBO, then a few years later in Krav Maga and it has been far and away, the best thing I have put myself through. The instructors dont baby you like so many other "self defense" courses (Karate *cough* TaeKwonDo *cough*...at least in the US) You get your ass kicked, and it sticks with you. Close quarters weapon training is very useful, especially if you train in common situations like in your car, or in an elevator. Watching that video brought a lot back to me

    I wish my back wasn't fucked up. I really want to find a training center around these parts.:hs:

    I just looked into training centers around me and there is a Krav Maga school here in Charleston... I'm thinking about taking some classes but I don't want to be dropping a lot of money right now. :hsd:

    If you have the right mindset you will NOT regret dropping the money. It is by far the best training you can get (at least to me) for the skills they train you in. If you get a good trainer, he will rough you up a good bit, but its a great way to make you learn quickly and remember it in the future.
