5 Gunfighting Myths Debunked By Massad Ayoob

Personal Defense World published this excellent article by Massad Ayoob (link) a year or so ago and it is definitely worth a read. Here are the myths he addresses:

“IF YOU CAN’T DO IT WITH SIX, YOU CAN’T DO IT AT ALL!”

“MY CAR IS NEVER FAR AWAY, SO I’LL JUST KEEP MY HANDGUN/LONG GUN/SPARE AMMUNITION THERE.”

“YOU MUST PRACTICE ONLY POINT SHOOTING, BECAUSE YOU’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE YOUR SIGHTS IN A GUNFIGHT!”

“YOU MUST PRACTICE ONLY AIMED FIRE, BECAUSE YOU’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO HIT ANYTHING POINTING!”

“YOU CAN NEVER JUSTIFY SHOOTING A MAN MORE THAN 7/15/25 YARDS AWAY!”

When I first decided that my family deserved more protection than an old baseball bat could provide Massad Ayoob was one of the main sources of information available at the time on the use of lethal force and common sense recommendations on techniques and gear. One of these days I hope I can take one of his classes and meet him in person, and thank him for helping me keep my family safe.

God Bless.
