Gear and training
Sure, I didnít need training. A pocket gun was enough. I got lucky. I also probably wonít get in a car crash today, but Iím still going to wear my seatbelt when I go buy lunch this afternoon. I probably wonít cut my hand today, but I still have disinfectant and bandages in the house.
A seatbelt and first aid kit? A seatbelt and first aid kit are more akin to gear than to training. I can drive just fine without HPDE. The more appropriate analogy I think would be CPR training. The fact is, as tool-users, we can accomplish quite a lot by employing tools for jobs.
It’s like there’s this weird dynamic on this training issue where on one side you have people who think all training sucks and as long as they have their
lucky rabbit’s foot err gun in their pocket, they’re ten feet tall and bulletproof. And on the other, you have people who eat, sleep and poop training because they’re high-speed, low-drag mall ninja wanna be supper troopers who think everyone who doesn’t work out and train is one cell level above an amoeba in terms of functioning.
And I know neither of those is true but that’s pretty much what each sides says about the other. Anyway, I take training classes for a simple reason: they’re fun and I learn stuff.
And I want to take HPDE.
