9.4.16: First Person Defender: Situational Awareness - This Week on GunVenture

Mandeville, LA - This week on GunVenture, we're reminded how even the most everyday tasks can quickly turn from mundane to downright deadly, with two episodes from the First Person Defender series. Our first participant witnesses an attack while waiting in line at an ATM. He'll have to act quickly in a tight space in order to save a life. Then, when a gun fight breaks out in a busy restaurant, our next participant learns an important lesson in keeping his distance.

Focusing on close quarters shooting and situational awareness, trainer Wes Doss works with the participants on developing the training techniques they'll need when faced with unexpected and dangerous situations. Plus, a timing training tip from trainer Chris Cerino.

From the Arizona desert to the snowy mountains of Oregon, along the East Coast and into the hills of Texas, follow the GunVenture Team as they explore the world of shooting - hunting, training, target shooting, and everything in-between. The GunVenture crew also manages to fit in a few side trips: It might be a visit to a brewery, shooting machine guns, the search for the best lobster roll, or off-roading in a Jeep. Whatever it is, you KNOW it'll be fun!
