As I mentioned earlier, the wife and I spent the weekend at LMS Defense’s awesome training facility in Oroville for the two-day Home Defense class, for which Pistol I or equivalent is a prerequisite.
Located in a professional building complex, LMS’s facility (think former doctors’ offices) is very realistic for home defense scenarios. It’s really easy to pick out areas of my home, at least, that are awfully close to what we encountered there. And that’s a tribute to how varied the room configurations, materials, furnishings, lighting, wall and floor coverings are. There’s a full kitchen, for one thing. There are classroom and staging spaces, as well, and you can see my wife twirling her hair in class and me, my back to the camera, to her left in the video below. I also got some camera and voiceover time, and she did too.
More on the class later, but holy shit, everybody needs to take this course! Takeaways were too numerous for me to mention without going back to my two days of notes. Which I will, in a later post.
