One of the most important parts of being prepared is being able to defend yourself from a violent attack. Unfortunately, such attacks are an everyday occurrence, not just a doomsday scenario. While it's ideal to have a gun, a smart prepper plans for the worst.
Disarm a Gunman Tutorial
So we're bringing you the “Don't Be A Victim” video series from our sister site, GunCarrier.com. In the first video, you'll learn several techniques to disarm a gunman. Check it out, and let us know in the comments if you have any self-defense tips when faced with an armed attacker!
There is no doubt about it, a situation where you need to disarm a gunman would be extremely difficult. The probability of successfully taking control over the aggressor, putting his firearm away, or taking it yourself is very low. However, with the right training, fast movements, and, of course, physical strength, there is a chance that you may pull it off. Anyway, if and when you are held at gunpoint you need to do something before the bad guy pulls the trigger. Indeed, you are right in the middle of a life-and-death situation.
You need to stay calm and keep emotions under control to disarm a gunman. It would be easy to cry and plead for mercy, but you don't know what's going on in the attacker's head. If he has the intention to kill you, then there is no way that he will change his mind and show compassion. Understandably, a scenario like this is not what anybody wants, but a reality check should always be done because you never really know. When you are facing a life-and-death situation, you need to make at least an attempt to spare your own life.
