1980s Gun vs Knife Police Training

Here is an interesting video to help train officers about the dangers of distance and knife attacks. The speed of the first attack is rather impressive. Some of this information seems out of date and of course more training and speed draws can help alleviate some issues. However not many practice drawing quickly out of the holster.

    First scenario, approx 0:35 in. Wallet to the face. Love it!

    And the the public can't understand how police end up shooting an "unarmed" man; well when your life is measured in split seconds - chit happens!
