When it comes to personal protection against an active threat, having a defensive action plan is not a luxury but a necessity. The advantage of such a plan is:

  • You’re not waiting around to be caught in the middle of an attack
  • You are not forced to come up with a solution on the fly
  • You have a widened scope of awareness prior to an attack

Your intent should always be to predict or prevent your involvement in any violent physical threat. However, if you have no choice but to engage a threat, you must consider your response options based on realistic expectations.

One of the greatest benefits about writing these blogs and being involved with Springfield Armory® is that occasionally they will send new products to experiment with before they are released. Normally this process is relatively secretive - if a product has not been released, it CAN'T be shown to the general public.

Also, the secret product may not be in the final stage of development. I have a lot of respect for this process and I'm very careful to make sure I don’t do anything to violate their trust.

When a new caliber comes out, I usually wait to see how it’s received and if it’s going to stick around. So when the .300 Blackout made its appearance several years ago, I took the “wait and see” approach.
