Having just completed a HAD course with Jelen (and very good it was too) a thought has occurred. How many people PRACTICE with their chosen HAD tool?
As part of Jelen's practical section we were asked to bring in various shotguns and firearms that can be used for HAD and fired them at targets to demonstrate the effect on shot patterns and bullet placements at the very short ranges normally dealt with in these circumstances. Two people had revolvers - one resulted in two perfect shots in the brain and one in what would have been a mess - demonstrating the need to practice.
The question is, how often do the owners of pistols for humane dispatch practice? Should I feel the need for one I would like to be able to practice in my local range on paper and know what's going to happen way before using it in anger as it were and that would need to be conditioned on the FAC.
And before the whole "should people be allowed to have a pistol blah blah blah" starts that's not the question.
