This week is dominated by SHOT Show news, and in the midst of all the shiny new goodies it’s hard to remember that self defense isn’t just about hardware. Guns and ammo are easy to write about, so that’s what most people concentrate on. As a result, you find lots of sites that deal with hardware, but precious few with the software so necessary for survival.
That situation is about to change: the Personal Defense Network has gone “live”!
PDN is the new source for self defense articles, tips, and video lessons on the net. Rob Pincus, the Managing Editor, has gathered some of the best authorities from around the country to staff PDN, with a simple goal: PDN aims to be the leading destination of high-quality, personal defense content online, as well as a no-nonsense gathering place for those serious about arming themselves for defense in every aspect of their lives.
This isn’t the same old “9mm vs. .45ACP” stuff you find in the magazines or on the gun forums – the information at PDN is at a higher level. You’ll learn some new techniques, some refinements of your existing skills, and some vital topics that other sites just won’t touch (check out “Dealing with a Gun Shot Wound During Training Class“.)
It isn’t all about guns, either; self defense is more than simply shooting people, and PDN delivers vital information to help you expand your hand-to-hand and less lethal skills (“Don’t Bring A Gun To A Knife Fight” is a great introduction to why the gun isn’t always the right answer.)
There’s lots more, from fitness to legalities to tactics, all written by some of the best people in the business. You’ll hear from master trainer Rob Pincus as well as such renowned experts as Tony Blauer, Michael Janich, John Brown, Marty Hayes, Andy Langlois, Kent O’Donnell, and Paul Haberstroh. (Oh, and some guy named Grant Cunningham – anyone know who he is?)
Check out the site, watch the videos, read the articles, and join the forum. Check in often, as there’s a lot more great content coming at PDN.
