So at its heart, if we are different in this way, I see our views on using force as the difference and I don't know if any discussions can happen by either of us forgoing this moral premise that perhaps only I bare.
I love analog gaming, defensive art pursuits, reading Sci-Fi and Fantasy, though lately it's been all non-fiction as I've found the psychology of stress/combat fascinating and helpful.
Having been on G+ for a bit of time, I find that I post a lot of firearm self-defense related thoughts. If you'd like to be a part of that ramble, please let me know directly so I can add you to those circles, if by reading your own profile this reciprocal interest doesn't immediately stand out to me. Please include me in any self-defense pursuits you may have, and I do mean any form of martial arts, weapons involvement or not.
I was lucky enough to have worked for one of the most prestigious civilian firearm training facilities in the United States, and I still conduct my own freelance firearm training when not focused on school during these recent times. Know that all my postings are of my own, and not representative of my several private EMS employers.
#drypractice I mean today. No, I'm not joking.
Go train. Heavily consider a Rangemaster road class or a Tactical Response class in Camden, TN (whom also travel extensively.)
Before Rangemaster's closing of its of physical location in August of 2014 for full time road class requirements, I assisted in teaching fighting tactics at Rangemaster. I consider my greatest self-defensive arts impact to be, so far, as having to assist in running our practical shooting league which was held once a week for almost 16 years running. Our school, up to that point that we know about, had 64 students involved in personal violent encounters, all of which had been won by our students. If you have heard of a better record for student involved civilian violent encounters, I beg you to let me know. I'd like to train at your place too.
I like engineering and science, and have the goals of doing these disciplines with greater wisdom. Please share with me anything along those lines. :)
