Mike Sisino: The Contiuum of Force - Make Good Decisions!

David and Mark are rejoined by Mike Sisino to talk about the Continuum of Force and, specifically, about making good decisions during a self-defense scenario all the way up to the point of having to pull the trigger on your gun.

As a backdrop to this conversation we also discuss the July 19, 2018 shooting in Clearwater, Florida of Markeis McGlockton by gunman Michael Drejka.


About Mike Sisino

Mike was with us on Episodes Six and Seven where we talked about the practicality of the AR-15 for civilian defensive purposes.  Mike is 31-year veteran of Law Enforcement as a State Policeman where he also worked as a SWAT officer.   Mike was also the Lead Firearms Instructor at his state’s State Police Academy for a period of time.  

And something which is extremely relevant to this episode, Mike served on his state’s Use of Force Committee which oversaw all training concerning the use of force, firearms training, and instructor certification.
