Shooting For Survival: A Blast From The Past

Earlier this morning I was browsing the Doodie Project ForumOpens in a new tab. when I came across an old video on Shooting for Survival. Like any old film with the VHS hiss in the background, I couldn’t resist watching.

The video appears to be an old training film, from the FBI, to teach officers to survive a gunfight. I think most of what is contained in the video is well past its expiration date but it was interesting nonetheless. Comically wide stances and point-shooting is showcased in this film.

What I’d like to know from you, is there something to be learned from this old training film? Aside from “avoid 99% of what is seen”, is there useful information that can be fleshed out?
