    Little more to the story.

    Dwyer is a federal Justice Department firearms instructor trained in how to disarm people.

    He did what he practices all the time to teach students. And do note, even then the attackers gun fired while in the struggle.

    Guys (and gals) if you ever think you might need this skill, practice it often! And have the other guy resist.

    I've trained using the NYPDs methods, Krav Maga, Systema, and what I learned in TKD. All have some good techniques. But you have to train often to internalize them. If you don't do that you will have to think before you apply the technique, and that's not good.

    Also, just as important, if not more, you must see when a good opportunity presents itself and take immediate advantage of it. And that takes training time to!
