Use of Deadly Force Chapter 1

Chapter 1


I’ve been asked to donate material on the use of deadly force. This is not be a tutorial on how to administer deadly force; it is an informative article designed to make you aware of subject matter you may never have known about.

The information presented is paramount for anyone considering owning or carrying a defensive firearm either concealed or open carry.

Much of the subject matter is universal and should apply to everyone. Yet some, you will need to research according to your local laws and then study.

Similar to muscle memory developed during firearm practice, being proficient and mentally prepared for a violent attack is equally important. Knowing what to expect and how to respond can save your life and the lives of people you love.

As I move forward with lessons, I will consider everyone a novice.

As I explain subject matter in the beginning, it may seem boring or elementary to some, but hopefully, everyone will learn something new throughout the course.

I cannot stress this enough. Research your laws for your specific area. It will help develop the mental fortitude you will need to handle a violent attack.

For example, SYG or “Stand Your Ground” legislation. Although, the concept may be similar in every state that has enacted “SYG”, there may be nuances for your particular area. After following this course, you will know the basics of SYG and then, you can research the laws and how they will pertain to the laws in your area.
