City of Houston: Tips to survive a shooter
Run if a safe path is available. Always try and escape or evacuate even if others insist on staying.
Encourage others to leave with you but don't let the indecision of others slow down your own effort to escape.
Once you are out of the line of fire, try to prevent others from walking into the danger zone and call 9-1-1.
If you can't get out safely, find a place to hide.
When hiding, turn out lights, remember to lock doors and silence your ringer and vibration mode on your cell phone As a last resort, working together or alone, act with aggression, use improvised weapons and fight.

Pray that someone has a weapon to protect us!

That should do it!

Here's my own set of tips from real life experiences:

1. Get cover.
2. Shoot to suppress.
3. Flank if necessary or available.
4. Shoot to neutralize the threat(s). Use grenades if available (haha).
5. Secure the neutralized threat(s) and his weapon(s)

run if possible its hard to hit a moving target. get cover behind somthing you know can stop or at least deflect the bullet. dont play hero unless you know 100% you can stop the threat

A 10% chance you can save lives is worth taking in my opinion.

The part I don't get is, why use improvised weapons? Why put yourself at a disadvantage from the start? Stupid, stupid :mad:

I tend to agree. Too much preparation can be costly. I would rather hide behind a half emptied magazine than a wooden barrier. That's just me and where my mindset would go.

Agreed and I would add: I would rather die with an empty weapon in my hand and shot in the chest than die with some bullet holes in my back.

with only a 5 shot snubbie, I think it'd be worthwhile to send 5 aimed rounds toward the armed threat from cover or from a position in which escape is easier, then run away

That's why they make these:

5 shot snubbie + 2 speed strips = deep concealment

instead of the speedloaders, which are bulky and don't conceal well on me,

I'd prefer to carry an semi + spare mag or 2

I shoot most compact semis better than small framed revolvers.

I can shoot large framed revolvers better than large frame semis.

Round count starts to matter when considering that 1 magazine = 2 x 5 round speedloaders

easier for me to conceal a mag

I found that I can conceal my full size USP .40 with a Remora holster just tuck into my shorts around my kidney. Learned this by leaving it on for 3 hours and no one in my family noticed.

Thanks to this post, it will be shown more. I'm sending the link to several people. Who would have thought we'd get to the point where we need to forward a link on Last Resort Strategies because of deranged gunmen.

Pick up a 2x4 and attack a person with a gun? Ummm, no thanks.

Saw this on Facebook and was going to post, but it looks like its already here.

I agree with AfghanVet. My EDC = HK45c + 3 magazines.

25 rounds in the direction of the shooter before I die.

Improvised weapon? Yeah...for me that means finger on the trigger.
