Incredulous Desensitization Shooting Targets!

UPDATE: As of 2/19/13, 20:25, the link to the specific 'no more hesitation targets' page is down.

Desensitization at its worst.

Mentally preparing 'them' to shoot pregnant women and children!

No More Hesitation Targets were designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.No More Hesitation faded background enhances the isolation and is meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusal targets for the first time.
Non-traditional threat depicting a hostile pregnant woman in a nursery. Background is faded further highligting and highlighting the threat.

Non-traditional threat depicting a hostile young mother surrounded by childred on a playground. Background is faded further highligting and highlighting the threat.

Non-traditional threat depicting a very young boy holding a real gun. Designed to prepare officers for the worst possible situation. Background is faded further highligting and highlighting the threat.

Do you get it yet?

  2. So, what exactly are these "many" things wrong with it? These are not qualification targets that officers are going to plug 50 rounds into. They are reaction targets designed to show police officers that the "bad guys", are not always men dressed in bad guy clothing. If it was a black man, you'd be complaining that it teaches police to shoot black people. These targets are mixed in with others of different people who may or may not be armed to teach officers to watch for weapons and not be distracted by the apparent innocence of a pregnant woman or small child. Things are not always as they are presented. This is taken out of context.

    1. Well then I don't suppose anyone would take issue with targets depicting SWAT, TSA, DHS, or other gun-toting agents who regularly infringe on our Rights with impunity, sometimes even murdering them under color of law. You're right, sometimes the bad guys aren't dressed in bad guy clothing. Let's put the shoe on the other foot, shall we?

  3. Background was faded to tear Femen beta male attention away from the draperies.

    FABULOUS!

  4. I vividly remember the "train like you fight" mantra from my days in the combat arms. It was a mantra that was constantly preached and then drilled into us incessantly at places like NTC, JRTC, and the CMTC…well I guess we now know what those 1.6 billion hollow points the government recently purchased are intended for!

    1. I guess they’re starting to train like they intend to fight.

  5. I wonder if I can a target with the CEO's wife on it or maybe his kids or at least his puppy? They could save big bucks not paying models if they used in house personnel.

    Maybe Jeff would volunteer his pics

  6. I knew if I went to the manufacturers website they would not have ONE target with a black on it, let alone a young black male.

    If the targets were instead ALL blacks, THEN it would be realistic.

    You could even put a big screen TV on the wall in the background and an EBT card protruding fron a front pocket... Now there is a target you may be faced with in ANY home on any MLK Jr. Blvd in any city in America.

    Ask me how I know.

    1. Lex is right. I stumbled upon this paragraph at Liberty's Torch today which backs up his comment:

      "If one looks to the 2011 FBI crime statistics, one notices that whites (Hispanics included) make up 78.1% of the U.S. population while Blacks comprise 13.1%. By race, blacks commit 45% of their crimes against whites while 43% target fellow blacks and 10% of their victims are Hispanic. When Whites commit violent crime, only 3% of their victims are black. By considering these crimes as a percentage of the population at large, blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites than vice versa and 136 times more likely to commit robbery."

  7. I once went through training in a "shoot house." Each room had a target in it, and I had to decide shoot or no shoot. As I was slicing the pie before entering one room, I could see that the target was a woman. I decided not to shoot. However, as I advanced into the room, it was clear she had a gun and was a "shoot" target. Had it been real life, I'd have been dead. It's important to realize that not all enemies will be zombies or guys in Middle Eastern garb.

  8. I also noticed all the targets are whites. It seems the current threat is not the black gang banger, drug dealer, rapist, but apparently the upstanding white citizen is the threat.

  9. Zombie looters....
    Well, maybe not yet but they will be if they don't get capped right now. Better to be safe than sorry. And who's counting anyway. Those 1.4 billion rounds of 40 cal need to be used wisely.
    Target practice. Yea right.
    Zombies. Bring em.
