No, the Glock 48 doesn’t kill the PD10. I don’t even think most people will truly find it to be a better pistol… but, time will tell on that front. It won’t be long before people start shooting the Glock 48 for real… when they do, ask them if they’ve shot a PD10 before you accept their comparative thoughts. The good news is that more and more people will be able to make that actual comparison as time goes on.
“Perceived Penalty for a Miss” is a psychological factor that may affect your balance of speed & precision. That is how we at I.C.E. Training Company talk about the psychological factor that could cause you to hesitate to take a shot that you absolutely can make in a defensive shooting situation. Worrying about missing might also (appropriately) cause you to slow your shooting down or chose not to take a shot at all if the penalty for missing is high enough.
After you successfully defend yourself, will your attacker be characterized as a victim in the aftermath of a defensive gun use? Legal and emotional issues are probably the most daunting aspects of the aftermath of a defensive gun use. The key to surviving any conflict is preparing ahead of time.

The “ASK Campaign” became a weaponized political tool and far too many gun owners react negatively to what should be seen as opportunity to demonstrate responsibility and have positive conversations
Last night on PDN Live I answered questions related to Home Security & Safety. This was a very different conversation than I would’ve had with the viewers if the topic hand been “Armed Home Defense”, although we did talk about that a bit.
I was cleaning The Beast’s air filters this afternoon and I thought about the picture I took with the 5.56 AR15 inside the engine compartment of my slightly-tamer sedan. That picture was really popular in the gun world social media, because I made the point that the 450+ horsepower engine can push that car to more than twice the highest legal posted speed limit in the country… yet, no one was trying to take it away from me.
So, lets take a real look at issues of licensing, training and power in regard to cars & guns…
I took a few minutes yesterday to really break down the viral “RSO Grabs Gun!” video from a training standpoint AND a political one. You can see the Video at my Youtube Channel. Things to Consider: Training: Should RSOs and Instructors be prepared to control shooters physically? Do you think they generally are? Politics: …
A “manifesto” ? Really, Rob? Yes… a damn Manifesto! It’s the right word… I checked three dictionaries, including one actual paper one! ***** I think it is imperative that we have more dialogue in our Country about Gun Rights Issues. Conversations needs to happen most with people who don’t understand our …
I want to have the most comprehensive list of clear positions on Gun Rights Issues, Laws and Policies of any organization on either side of the Gun Responsibility Issue. I think we’ve done a good job to get us started!
