Resource Of The Week: Gun Talk Media’s First Person Defender

Long-time readers know I’ve been listening to podcasts of a radio show called Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk for a number of years now (named it a “Resource Of The Week” back on July 15, 2011).

I’m swamped these days so I don’t get to listen to podcasts as much as I’d like. However, in an episode of Gun Talk a few weeks back I learned about a recent project of Gun Talk Media out on YouTube. Enter First Person Defender. From the Gun Talk Media page on YouTube:

First Person Defender takes regular “good guys” and puts them in an intense, real life, self-defense situation. We use Simunition guns and ammo, and force on force training to see what works, and what doesn’t.


“Coming Soon- First Person Defender”

On the website for American Rifleman magazine, NRA staff wrote back on February 4:

First Person Defender takes regular people, with varying degrees of familiarity with firearms, and puts them into intense force-on-force self-defense scenarios using Simunition conversion kits and FX Marking Cartridges. Each episode starts out with the Defender roleplayers being subjected to an unknown scenario, after which their performances are evaluated. After consulting with the instructors regarding what worked, what didn’t work and a few things they should do differently next time to increase their odds of survival, the Defenders are run through a similar but different circumstance in order to put their instruction to use…

Episodes are around 15 minutes or so, and Seasons 1 and 2- each comprising of 15 installments- are available to view for free on YouTube.com.

I just got finished watching Season 1, Episode 1, entitled “Man Surprises Car Thief.” I was impressed. Living in the Chicagoland area most of my life, I’ve observed hold-ups/similar scenarios could mean “your money and your life.” So if someone is pointing a gun at you demanding money…

Head on over to the Gun Talk Media area on YouTube here to start watching First Person Defender now.
