and more willing to shoot than the cops. Or most CCW folks.
The first thing that the researchers learned is that our assumptions
about criminals not training are wrong. Nearly 40% of the criminal
attackers in this study had received FORMAL firearms
training (mostly in the military). More than 80% of the criminal
attackers regularly practiced with their firearms, with an average
number of 23 Practice Sessions Per Year! They
conducted these practice sessions in trash dumps, wooded areas, back
yards and “street corners in known drug trafficking areas”. What that
means is that the practice sessions were taking place in realistic
environments, under conditions similar to those the attackers were
likely to face in combat.
