Have you ever wondered what it would be like to try your hand in an actual gun fight? I have read lots of books By Col. Jeff Cooper and others that try to prepare you for the reality of a gun battle. Still, how would YOU really react – how fast do things change, have you trained enough to perform under high stress? Well, you can get all these questions safely answered at COMBAT CITY USA.
Combat City USA has been all over the news the past couple of days, so many of you have probably already seen this video, or one like it. The reason I had to write about it today is because I was watching Fox and Friends this morning and Gretchen Carlson was appalled that this was allowed to happen. She was extremely upset that people were allowed to practice against real people in such a scenario. Has she never heard of laser tag, paint ball, air-soft, this is just another form. Combat City USA does have air-soft matches as well, but as you will see in the video, they they have matches that allow people to use their actual guns. This is better, because in your home – that is the gun you will have. Practice with the equipment you will be using. Even in the military, there are plenty of times when training is simulated but the best learning occurs when the training is as close to real life as possible.
I applaud Combat City USA and any other range with realistic training like this. They are located in Orlando, FL. Do any of you know of similar opportunities elsewhere in the country? I would love to give those places some press time too! (I have a feeling Combat City USA is going to be fully booked for awhile!)
