Practice makes perfect O:-) Shooter are you ready? Standby..... :D

Being caught on the fly on the street is one thing, at home or work (assuming you work in the same place everyday/most of the time), is something you can make preparations for. Its odd how long that broken off 16" guillotine arm has been left in the stores cupboard at my work.... teanews

I'd most likely be unarmed , distance is your friend in a shooter situation closely followed by angles (bullets tend to want to fly straight) I would distance myself from the situation as fast as possible trying to put angles between me and the shooters and solid building/structures as well.

if trapped by a shooter with no escape then I'd close and attack with anything to hand even if that's just fists , I will not die without at least trying to fight.

Interesting suggestions, yes distance is your friend with most shooetrs. So lets' assume we are advising Joe Public here and see what comes up.

Agreed that it's hard to find someone to repair old office equipment these days ;) ;) :good:

The advice, if I recall correctly, currently being given to Schools, is to evacuate and run, if not possible then hide and try to secure the children, only call for help once either locked down, or have completed evacuation. If they have to hide and lock down and the attacker presses forth, then attack by any means necessary.

Schools in the South West have been informed that they are unlikely to be attacked, if they are the chances are it will be over in around 5 minutes, armed response will be there in 8-15 minutes depending on location of the school, ambulance crews not long after.

Who said we were civilised?

I've always looked to find a means of protecting myself at work/out and about, its got nothing to do with those lads keen on visiting Allans Snackbar.

If anything it was when Raoul Moat was on the loose and reported to be at my work place that promoted me to make better provisions at work. At the time i only worked 3 minutes away from home but my gun cabinet might as well have been on the other side of the moon and while the armed response guys arrived in less than 10 minutes (quite bad considering they were setting up in the police station 50 metres away wtf ) those were a long 10 minutes

Who told them that, denial is mistake number one. They are LESS likely to be attacked, not unlikely. Subtle difference.

Huddling together in a room is a good way of upping the casualty rates..just look at Dunblane to see how that worked to good effect: all couped up in a gymn with no where to go.

I wasn't referring to the illegal immigrants that france pushes our way by building holding camps at an easily accessible port rather than a more secure unit well away from access to our ports wallhead , I have sympathy with frances problem re immigration but as an island it should be less of a problem for us?

I was referring to the Islamic ones that live here already and the ones fleeing persecution in their own Islamic nations yet seem to want us to build them mosques and allow them to try and turn our country into a sharia state ? kukkuk

By the time they have arrived at Calais, most have already crossed half of the world , so the Strait of Dover's little 20 miles is merely a last tiny annoying hurdle ...

but you are 100% correct in saying that the more mosques you built them, the more introduction of sharia law you make in your own, the more of your culture you destroy to make way for theirs, the more benefits you give them and the more papers you dish around, the larger numbers you will attract and in return the more populous they become, the more demands they will make to eventually manage to turn this land into the same s*** they left.
And they don't need France for that, merely some British politicians making the same mistakes we made 30 years ago ...
