Among the numerous seminars, workshops, and special presentations afforded to those who visited the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis was a presentation by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, who has authored and co-authored several books. In the presentation, entitled, "Sheepdogs! The Bulletproof Mind for the Armed Citizen," Grossman discussed in-depth the mental and physical preparedness for the armed citizen, as well as the threats that the armed citizen could face. Additionally, Grossman detailed PTSD and the mind and body after encountering an armed threat. Overall, it was an excellent presentation and certainly exuded sage advice for all attendees.
