During a life-threatening encounter, the body and mind can react in a variety of ways. In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Applied Firearms Defense Skills instructors Cat and Whitney Potgeter outline these physiological and psychological responses and explain how each could impact your ability to protect yourself. While it's impossible to prepare for every situation or predict exactly how we will respond, a training plan that simulates real-life scenarios can help. Ultimately, the key to surviving a life-threatening confrontation is the determination to persevere, prevail and never give up.
