In the third and final video in this installment of Proving Ground, USCCA team member Jared faces a dynamic critical incident in a gaming store, just as Spencer did in Video 1 and MJ did in Video 2.

On the way to the scenario, Concealed Carry Magazine Executive Editor Kevin Michalowski advises Jared to think about it as “deadly force decision-making training.”

So … how does Jared fare when a knife-wielding hostage taker enters the scene?

Will he intervene and risk his own life to come to the aid of the victim?

Or will he use good situational awareness to find a way to escape?

Engage or Escape?

Find out how Jared responds and hear from Kevin and USCCA Associate Editor Beth Alcazar after the scenario ends in this final dynamic video.
