An interesting article in MarineTimes - Point Blank Self Defense. The Corps (and I suspect the Army also) is incorporating some new training as a result of "Insider Attacks" in Afganistan. Couldn't find anything specific about it, but here's the article:
This is something that would be useful to practice for home and personal defense also. SAP (Speed, Accuracy, Power) in surprise situations. Making yourself a small target, immediate cover options in your house or other locations, situational awareness, etc., etc. These are the kind of things that can save your life at 3am.
I think many newbies to personal/home defense think that a confrontation is/would be a standup fight, Wyatt Earp style. Big mistake.
