Mom and Daughter Prove Untrained, Unskilled People Can Defend Themselves | Active Self Protection

These two ladies have gone quite viral on social media for their bravery. To me, they prove that untrained, unskilled people can defend themselves with firearms and that a firearm is a very useful tool for people to have, even if they’re not highly skilled. That said, let’s learn some lessons so that if we’re ever in a similar situation we have a high skill level for more margin for victory! Extra lesson with more thoughts: NEWS STORIES, MORE INFO: Raw from local news: News story: ASP merch is in stock in the store…go get a newly designed limited edition phone case! ASP Extra new channel for tips, drills, gear reviews, vlog, etc: If you value what we do at ASP, would you consider becoming an ASP Patron Member to support the work it takes to make the narrated videos like this mom and daughter showing us that untrained, unskilled people can defend themselves? or gives the details and benefits.

Glock 42, 26 or 19 JHP ammo + Training Training Training Training this is important

Alex Matthews says:

Glad they survived, the ladies will need extra firearm training, learn to put kill shots on target.

blaberoo says:

pure luck they survived

mikha007 says:

will he be back?

dtadeo2006 says:

Imagine this scenario: Guns = ILLEGAL. Crooks would STILL have guns and these ladies wouldn't have been able to fight back!

abu zaben says:

If revolver was in .357 mag , video would've been a lot shorter.

MotoCob says:

I dont think I could have STOPPED shooting him.. Why did she stop.. so many times she could have dropped him.. So scary but good job on them.

jj ole says:

What they didn't have in Skill they sure as Hell made up for it in Attitude and Plan!!! Glad these ladies are doing are alright

iFrZ Kev says:

I hope this was a wake up call for them to get trained

Trigger Bait says:

bring back the beard, my dude 🙂

Diddy says:

This was the CRAZIEST ONE YET JOHN! Well commented. Love this channel.

Retz says:

That chick picked up the second gun and didn't use it at all until her Mum was getting wrestled by the dude… that annoys me… SHOOT the guy BEFORE he puts your Mum in danger, not WHILE she is getting wrestled… if that gun hadn't been out of bullets that could have ended very badly, and you picked the absolute worst time to shoot the guy because your Mum was right next to him.

It's really simple shit. Pick up the gun, and shoot the guy. Put the fucking phone down, the police can wait, you can't rely on the police to save your ass all the time, in the few minutes it'd take for them to get there the dude could do a lot of damage. Use the guns you have and do something about it yourself.

These chicks are not only untrained and unskilled, but they're just plain stupid. I guess you can't blame them because they were getting robbed, but holy shit, get your shit together because there are lives on the line ffs.

rmwtsou says:

"Highly untrained" and "highly unskilled" just sound oxymoronic to me.

bp968 says:

Man someone please buy these poor ladies some nicer guns 🙁

William Goodwin says:

My gun was under the counter in my incident. I almost lost my life because of it. 45 round to the dome is no fun.

RN Mike says:

Good job ladies!

John Garand says:

Should have shot him in the back of the head instead of the back. I only say this because the mother was in a possible life/death struggle for that revolver. We all know how quickly you can be disarmed and killed with your own gun. Best bet would have been instant nervous system shut down in my opinion. I know it's not very PC but I don't think, given the circumstances, a jury would have faulted them.

reality358 says:

Man a pair of white girls with guns going up against a black guy with a shotgun. Great vid!!

Alain Revelo says:

Love to see robbers being shot….go girls kill him

Matztertaler says:

I have one serious question : Could it be ,that most robbers are black or is this a wrong impression ? It feels like : Oh , yes , he is black , i could bet he would be . Or is this statisticly wrong thinking and only looks like that when looking these ASP videos ? Here from europe , not familiar with the U.S.criminal statistics , it looks like most criminals are black. Is there a statistics report about that ?

VisualPlays says:

No need for training, pick up your glock, and shoot as much shots as you can, these woman were not taking this seriously for some reason, not sure if they were pior stoned.

Bflatest says:

Man I hate wishing people dead but that guy wow some people dont deserve skin

jorge Brien says:

This video is the reason i don't like the j frames. I do have a backup ankle revolver but it's 44 special and I train to put three rounds on target and take a second of sitrep on the threat and my surroundings for other threats and cover and concealment. Most people hold a gun an think once I pull the trigger I'm going to blow the threat away, no, keep shooting. But all this is in a just a few seconds so train train train and if you have a partner to train with like my brother and I. We yell and taunt and do ear slaps to keep the biomechanics sharp under distraction and stress. We have a blast trying to unerve eachother it gets pretty crazy but battle is chaos and train to shoot on the move and train to lift your feet don't shuffle and most of all be safe folks

g gomez says:

the fact that he was shot multiple times and still standing amazes me. he most likely was high out of his mind. it just reminds you, in a situation like this, you should shoot til the perp is down

jorge Brien says:

Congratulations ladies, you've been baptized by fire. Sloppy but effective. No worries though we are all shaky and sloppy the first time. Good job!! Now get back to work and do more training, training, training.

old worm says:

Why did he come back ??

Kimberly Sanchez says:

What is this guy a freakin Zombie?2 to the body 1 to the head,done.

Seth Jimerson says:

That Girl Was Hesitating She Almost Died You Need To Shoot
