Are You Prepared?
Increasing numbers of our nation’s inhabitants lack the ethical framework necessary to effectively function in a civilized society. As a result, these opportunistic individuals choose to operate without conscious or pity on the primitive level of “predator-prey”. Unfortunately, their “prey” often consists of the ignorant, the infirm, the elderly, the unwary, and those they otherwise perceive to be vulnerable. Any of us can be the target of crime, given the right set of circumstances. Victims, too often, are those among us least able or willing to defend themselves.
Criminals choose the time and place of their assaults, and they take pains to ensure that their crimes occur when the police are not around. Criminals choose their victims, and they take pains to choose those over whom they believe they have an advantage, be it in the possession of a weapon, youth, strength, or number. It is in the nature of things, therefore, that the victim will almost certainly be alone and be at a disadvantage relative to his assailant. The encounter will not be on equal terms; the fight will not be “fair.” Unarmed, without an “equalizer” to overcome those natural disadvantages, it is unlikely that the victim will have an effective means of defending himself. Unarmed, it is very likely that whether the victim lives or is maimed or injured will depend largely or entirely on the mercy of his assailant.
Learn to defend yourself, your family and loved ones. You have to become the Personal Protection Specialist. The number one thing I see on a daily basis in training classes is even though people have a license to carry they lack the “Skill Confidence” to effectively alter a violent encounters outcome. Even though we convince or rather fool ourselves into thinking because we have a firearm on our person we will be protected or safe from harm. It’s a fools bet folks.”Bark” without the will to “bite” is a risky substitute for taking absolute control of a violent encounter. Its like climbing into the ring with Joe Frazier, or getting in a knife fight with Steve Tarani or Brownie, or whooping up on Steven Segal in H2H. The same applies if getting into a gunfight with a psychopath. Your heart rate will jump from 70 to 220 in less than half second, you will freeze in fear. The only way to train through this is constant training in gross motor skills. Its all you are going to have left. At 115 beats you start losing manual dexterity and it only gets worse from there. Physical exertion has nothing to do with loss of fine motor skills it’s the FEAR FACTOR and we will all experience it when the balloon goes up..If you do not have the skill confidence it takes to go on the offensive YOU WILL SUBMIT and that firearm you so proudly carry would have been better left at home..
