Creating a realistic situation is one of the most challenging aspects of effective firearms training. Those few who have been forced to use a firearm to protect themselves or others are generally quick to say that their training was helpful but had little or no similarity to real world defensive shooting. Even the best training will never be enough, but it can be so much better than the current industry standard.
In a real world defensive situation, two realities can be expected which are seldom experienced in traditional firearms training.
- There will be adrenaline. Gallons and gallons of the stuff will be pumping through the shooter's veins. Until it is experienced, there is no way for anyone to know just what the effect will be. Let me say that another way. Until a person actually has the experience, he will have no clue. Short of making a shooter wear a randomly firing cattle prod in his pants during all training sessions, there is little that we can do to simulate this phenomenon.
- In an actual defensive shooting situation, the defensive shooter may well face an opponent that will do all he can to avoid being shot while doing everything in his power to do harm. Anyone who wishes to successfully come out of this experience must be able to move, shoot, move, reload, shoot and move again.
Traditional firearms training is about to change for the better. The DPT targeting system includes a movable target that will randomly move in and through a shooting stage. The targeting system will make moves in accordance with run parameters that can be configured by the user. With these parameters, the user may define a consistent level of target aggression (difficulty). However, even though a difficulty level can be maintained, pre-move pause, move speed, move direction, and move size will always be randomly controlled per the set parameters. This means that the shooter will be required to deal with and adjust to random and unknown behavior from the target. Now we have a target that will act a bit like you would expect from a real bad guy. In order to successfully shoot this target, the shooter will be required to react to the movements of the target in order to open available shooting lanes. Now, training will be accomplished with a level of realism that can only be increased through the use of a cattle prod.
