I had a couple of great discussions with Rob Pincus and Caleb Causey on last night’s Training Talk show!
Rob talked about reality based training, force-on-force, and scenario training. Lots of people in the business use those terms interchangeably, but as Rob points out they’re not synonymous. It’s completely possible to have reality based training without running scenarios, and it’s also possible to run scenario training that isn’t reality based. It was a terrific introduction to what are sometimes confusing terms!
Then I welcomed Caleb Causey of Lone Star Medics. Caleb showed us what to put in a minimalist EDC trauma kit and how it can be carried in darned near any situation. Get proper training and get a medical kit, because the chance of needing to treat yourself or someone else for severe trauma is significantly higher than needing to shoot a bad guy!
