One of the big MMA/UFC guys talking about (and supporting) reality training with guns, and gun rights?  Hock, you will love this...

I was rather surprised to hear such well thought out ideas on the subject coming from a UFC fighter.  I've gotten so use to the testosterone laden dribble that comes out of a lot of these guys mouths.  Anyway, the subject was obviously something that Frank Mir had given some thought to, and saw the value in the gun training - especially liked the emphasis on training outside of the shooting range.  Maybe he's been to one of Hock's seminars???  ;)

I've read that Mir has a CCW permit in his home state and carries regularly.  He supposedly shocked people during the pre-fight press conference of UFC 100, when he and Lesner stood up for a pose, and Mir took his shirt off and had a handgun and knife in his belt.  (I have not seen this so I cannot confirm...)

It is refreshing to hear this from a higher level MMA competitor for a change.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Another MMA fighter, Brandon Vera, stated in an interview that he was also considering CCW after a home invasion that took place at his instructor's house where the perp got disarmed by both of them. And I don't blame Mir for carrying since Las Vegas is more of a cesspool nowadays with Crips and Bloods collaborating to do anything to make money. I liked his points, well said. He sounds like a pro-self defense guy. But I do hope he does not train using a real gun on his partner.
