    It happened to a police officer in Las Vegas a couple years ago. He had a partner who knew what he was doing (former EMT) and saved his life.

    I am just a normal guy who likes to shoot as a hobby. These videos are always a real eye opener to what this "Hobby" is capable of. I don't know if I missed it, but why did no one help this fella? All those uniforms just standing around watching? I practice Kali so we do a lot of knife fighting and it's true this is a common target with an edged weapon and it's all too easy to hit. I have no experience with ever trying to "apply" this with anything other than a practice knife. Has anyone ever seen an edged weapon do this?

    I will never get to train as much as I want to. So when I do I need to make it count.
