Threat Management For The Armed Citizen (Podcast – Season 2, Ballistic Radio Episode 76 – August 24th, 2014)

“…I think it’s presumptuous of me to tell people what their options and their circumstances and their responses should be because I don’t know what their situation is… What I do like to do is to pose the questions that people should be asking themselves (when) deriving their own answers to those questions…” – Claude Werner


Once again the “Tactical Professor”, Claude Werner joins us. The topic of threat management for the armed citizen is discussed in detail, with special attention being paid to pre-need decision making and planning, as well as how to tailor our training to recognize and handle ambiguity more robustly. The concept of decision cascades, either from good or bad decision making, is discussed. The value of training, as a way to overcome the poor decision cascade, is highlighted, as is the thought that training as if shots will definitely need to be fired can set us up for tragedy once ambiguity/stress is introduced into a situation.
