Major projects will keep me busy for some time, so last post for a while (prolly). Was maybe going to make each of these silly shit things a post in itself, but…what the hell. Feel free to agree, disagree, and/or add to the list. Hardly extensive, just a list I came up with on the fly one day.
Velcro is too loud Because self defense is all about sneaking up on someone and going all ninja on ’em.
Shiny knives will give you away Ditto.
Tactical clothing on regular people, including tactical-looking ball caps Because I definitely want everyone to know what a bad ass I am, and draw the attention of the BGs in a situation. Much hair on my chest!
Tactical bags in non-tac environments Ditto.
Other target indicators – patches, car stickers/decals, etc. Ditto, ditto.
Carrying a BOB everywhere If you’re not in an environment where you might have to vamoose pronto – wildfire country, maybe, or tornado country – you got some ‘splaining to do as yo why you even need a BOB (most emergencies come with a warning).
Urban E&E bags There are stores in urban environments, you know. Just take what you need.
Planning, spending on, and stocking for TEOTWAWKI We are in for a long constant gray decline and need to know how to live in a much less prosperous times, but a Mad Max world isn’t coming in our, or our kids’, lifetimes. And certainly not suddenly.
Where’s the fire extinguisher? I know you got a bunch o’ guns, but how about one of these? On every story and in your car.
Do you know CPR; first aid?; empty hand skills? To repeat: know you got a bunch o’ guns..
Do you exercise, eat right, have your weight under control, don’t smoke, etc? Ditto. Remember: you can’t save your life, you can only prolong it. There are the items first on that triage list.
Yaqui Slide holsters for concealed carry I’m not going to explain this and simply leave it as a Rorschach Test of concealed carry knowledge.
