Random Musings for the Armed Citizen

 

With “Permitless” Carry taking effect in my home state of Texas September 1st  I had some thoughts:

One of the things I learned very early on when I started carrying a gun for self-defense was that I needed to adpot a mentality of Avoidance, Deterrence and De-Escalation if I wanted to stay vertical and out of prison.

  • Avoid Dangerous places and Stupid People

  • Deter Criminal Behavior with Acute and Constant Situational Awareness

  • De-Escalate heated situations with an apology and submissive behavior (Tuck your Ego and Temper In. Be the bigger man and Squash a Verbal altercations with an apology and move on.)

 

Most all of you know I am NOT a fan of Open Carry.

If you are going to carry a gun for self-defense, go concealed or don’t go at all.

The reasoning is simple: SURPRISE is one of the biggest advanatges the armed citizen has against a criminal, especially now in Texas when the odds are very high that every person that a criminal comes into contact with MAY BE armed!

Once the criminal knows a gun is involved it changes things dramatically.

It can work FOR the armed citizen (the deterrence factor) or it can work AGAINST them.

Just remember: EVERY altercation you are going to be involved in there will be a GUN present, YOURS!

For this reason I am a Firm believer in the armed citizen getting solid Weapon Retention Training.

Going along with the Concealment MO, you might re-consider your blade carry as well.

A pocket Clip folder is handy but it is also noticeable.

Instead, go for a horizontal fixed blade belt carry.

Lot of great options out there like the Cinch Pick.

Something to chew on.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous.

Black Maniac Get’s Put Down with some FINE Pistol Work

This Black Maniac POS set his house on fire, then drove off and shot 2 EMT’s, one of them fatally then drove back to his house and shot 2 fireman and a civilian trying to put out the flames. (Actions starts around 1:28)

Killed with some damn fine pistol work by the Cop (2 head shots from what looks like 40+ yards? Excellent Shooting. Could you do that when it counted? If not get to TRAINING NOW!)

This is the kind of shit the news does not tell you about because it screws up their “White Supremacist are the Real problem” Fake Narrative.

Don’t buy the BS Folks.

It’s a War Zone out there.

Prepare Accordingly.
