UTM Worldwide is now making the first ever 7.62mm man marker NLTA (Non-Lethal Training Ammunition) in existence now with their new 7.62×51 and 7.62×39 rounds. Both rounds will be available in a loose and linked rounds which will help to spread the training opportunities over several platforms. The man marker is only one part of their whole line of new 7.62mm rounds. Also available will be silent blank rounds, battlefield blank rounds and target bullet rounds.
If you have not done any reality based force on force training, I would highly recommend it. Find a local class or training facility and take a class. It will teach you a lot about how you react and blow a lot of holes in what you thought would work in a volatile situation. I learned a lot running full speed drills as both the attacker and victim.
For the training I was part of we as students were split into two groups. One group was the bad guys, who were given a weapon and scenario and told to do what we needed to the would be victim to win. On the other side we were the victim, or armed citizen and had to think through situations and read them and react accordingly. It really is an eye opening experience to have to react to lethal situations.
