What can you do if a criminal disarms you?

Tag: Concealed CarryConcealedCarryAdvocate

I’ve heard this topic discussed a lot with the open carry community (and anti-open carry). The argument is that having your gun out in the open gives a criminal the opportunity to disarm you. If you are truly carrying concealed, you should have little to worry about. However, if a criminal sees any type of printing, you are just as at risk at being disarmed.

Worst case, what can we do if we are disarmed? Hopefully this video can give us an idea on what we can do as a last resort. Remember, this is a last resort tactic, and your reaction time will play a key role in its success. In any case, it’s important to not get disarmed in the first place.

Also, keep in mind these disarming tactics can be used against us, too. If you are forced to draw on an attacker, the first thing you should do is gain ground away from them.

    I think another important thing to remember is that reaction times can change dramatically when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. So if you are disarmed be aware of your surroundings and pay close attention to the state of your attacker. If they are under the influence of something you may have a better chance of regaining control of the situation. You never want to lose control of your weapon but worst case can happen and if it does you need to have prepared for it.

    Also if someone takes your gun you can assume that they have ill intent for you and you may be shot either way. One thing to remember is always be aware of your environment.

    what happens if you are not a supper fast martial arts person? Seems like many of these tactics done by a normal citizen are going to result in you getting shot, other people around you being shot. Good advice to maintain your ground and do not hesitate to use your deadly force (in AK our law is if you even point your firearm at someone you have already used deadly force, may as will squeeze the trigger). The old saying goes “you may be killed with your firearm, but they will have to beat you to death with it because it will be empty.”
