You might be a bit skeptical at the idea that a knife can be more dangerous than a gun, but over at Modern Combat And Survival they make a very strong case. According to the FBI, only 10% of officers who were shot died from their wounds, whereas 30% of officers who were stabbed died from their wounds. The fact is, knives are deadlier. And that’s just the first reason a knife can be more dangerous than a gun.
Although it’s important to regularly go to the range and practice shooting, you should also learn how to deal with attackers that are very close. It’s one thing to hit a stationary target 25 yards away. It’s a whole other thing to hit a knife-wielding target charging at you from less than 15 feet away.
Jeff writes, “Why do you own a gun? The obvious answer is to protect yourself and those you love from an attacker who poses a lethal threat, right? But are you training the right way for the threat you’re most likely to face? Reports of real close-quarters attacks reveal that when it comes to facing an armed attacker intent on taking your life, you’re in much more danger from a knife attack than from someone armed with a gun.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
