097 The Early Days of the Officer Survival Movement

DENNIS ANDERSON AND THE DAWN OF THE OFFICER SURVIVAL MOVEMENT

Denny Anderson was “in at the beginning” of the Officer Survival training movement in the early 1970s, which in turn was the seedbed for much of what is now doctrine for law-abiding armed citizens.  Joining with Chuck Remsberg, Tom McTernan, and Ron Adams, he co-wrote the timeless “Street Survival” book, and he and Remsberg created the Caliber Press Street Survival Seminars which still exist today.

Go back to the roots as Denny tells us how things were then…and how much they’ve changed for the better since.

072 LIONS AND TIGERS AND BEARS, OH MY!

It was world news a few months ago when a crazed man released his menagerie of wild animals upon his community, and then committed suicide. It was  left to the Muskingum County, Ohio Sheriff’s Department under Sheriff Matt Lutz to contain the dangerous animals before they could maul or kill citizens.

A link is provided here for the report by the Sheriff’s Department.  Here, we present the story told by those who were there. A detective who had to blast a lion at close range with a 12 gauge. A deputy who killed a charging bear with a single shot from his Glock .40, just an instant before the bear reached him. The patrol and SWAT deputies who hunted through the night with their patrol rifles and SWAT precision rifles, until the last threat to their community was extinguished. And the high Sheriff, who had to answer for it all.

Thanks to our friend, associate, and consultant Keith Jones, who participated in the discussion.
