In all the years I’ve been writing about war, crime, and firearms, I’ve yet to hear of a person being assaulted by a piece of paper stapled to a stationary cardboard backer, or a steel plate attached to a post, and yet that is how 99.9% of us train with firearms.
That lack of familiarly with how real human targets move and react to being fired upon has caused people to freeze up or react poorly, and it has gotten countless people killed. The poor survival rates in real-world situations is the reason that both law enforcement and the military have spent billions in recent decades on ever-more-realistic simulators and force-on-force training tools.
A new facility in Plano, Texas is now adapting some of these training tools and methodologies to provide force-on-force scenarios to mimics situations that citizens might encounter.
