There are “how to” videos, and then there is Master Ken.

Let me go on the record, folks: even though we’ve featured them here before, I think the gun disarmament genre of video is an excellent way of getting yourself killed.

For a gun disarm to work, an incredible number of things must happen:

  • the assailant must have the gun just inches from the victim
  • the assailant’s arm must be extended and exposed
  • the assailant has to have slow reflexes
  • the assailant must have a one-hand grip
  • the potential disarmer must be incredibly fast
  • the potential disarmer must be accurate
  • the potential disarmer must be well-trained

Unless your name is Victor Marx, your best options are situational awareness and a handgun of your own.
