Cold Steel Knives has a video out called “Never Unarmed”. In it the company founder Lynn C. Thompson demonstrates some questionable shooting skills and techniques.
Take some time to watch this, as Cold Steel has taken this video down before.
WOW, huh? There are some seriously dangerous and stupid things done there, like point-shooting rounds into the dirt (waste of ammo, and potential for wild shots and ricochets) and blatant disregard for rule #4 in shooting through that mocked-up house.
And lots of silly stuff like his amateur commentary, talking about carrying lots of 32 round magazines (if you’re packing THAT much pistol ammo, why not just lug a carbine with you?) lots of high-speed low drag talk from a guy who is embarrassingly out of shape.
Its one thing to have a gut and not look like a Calvin Kline Model, its another thing to be out of breath from a STATIONARY string of fire, or from a couple of steps shooting on the move.
You want to survive a gunfight? Don’t carry more guns, carry less body weight! He may be able to hit a steel plate at 200 yards with a long-slide Glock, but he presents a BIG target for returning fire.

DVD set of this quality worth $120? Yeah, I’ll pass!
