What can you learn from this?
The lessons I see we can learn from this are:
- One shot probably isn’t going to do the job.
- Neither the mother or the daughter appeared to be very comfortable shooting. They seemed hesitant even after it was clearly “game on”. Know when to shoot and when to stop. When it’s time to shoot keep shooting until the threat is gone or you have lost your sight picture.
- An experienced shooter should have been able to place well aimed shots in the guys upper chest at a rate of about two per second or better. These two would shoot then wait, shoot then wait.
- Shot placement is very important. If the girl had gotten close enough to put a sold hit into the guys head when he was wrestling with her mother he probably would have gone down a lot sooner.
I don’t know what was happening outside when the mother was shooting out the door, but one generally should stop shooting when the bad guy is running away.
