Being Armed

Whenever you feel threatened. Or, hunting/fishing.

If something happens that moves you from condition YELLOW to condition RED, you will wish you were armed, if you are not.
If you do not know what I mean, you need to study the color code of mental alertness/awareness!!

After you learn the system, you have to CONSCIOUSLY remind yourself to use it, until it becomes second nature

Waking up!

Be armed from the moment you wake up till you lay down! Even while asleep keep two within reach!! Live in condition yellow, and live alot longer!

at least my pocket .25 at all times.
Next to bed is a pistol or two and the Winny 12 ga 18" bbl.

There is NO reason to be unarmed.
If a store or business is posted no guns, I then Don't shop there. I have cards made up telling them so. They Lose.
Most times I just consider the "No Guns" a mere suggestion. I don't generally heed it, because they aren't going to protect me.
I avoid most convenience marts, ie: 7-11, Circle K, etc., because that is where the asshole miscreants hangout. I don't smoke and slurpies give me a major sinus headache. Why go where trouble happens?
Safety is a thought process, never blindly stumbling into things. Be aware of your surroundings at all times!

I will have to say SamD hit it on the head...

Gun Control= the theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

You are referring to the infamous shootout in Miami in 1986 between FBI agents and two bank robbers named Platt and Matix. I know platt's first name is michael, but I can't remember Matix's first name. The car they were driving when the FBI initiated the shootout in a residential area was stolen from a man they shot in the everglades at a public area people used for plinking. That man lived, but barely. When I go shooting, I always have a loaded gun on me in addition to the one I'm training with and try to maintain distance from other shooters. I know it sounds cliche, but the reason for having a gun is the same reason for having a fire extinguisher in the car. It's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.

and i used it on my wife to bring guns into our home..having a fire extinguisher in the house is just in case you need it..having a mossberg .410 mounted on the side of my dresser is just in case i need it.also i took that a step further and am having a storm shelter put in my backyard..just in case...ok maybe i am going a little overboard

South Carolina has been hit with some hellacious storms, so it makes sense. It would be going overboard to have a storm shelter here in southern AZ. As long as your preparations are reasonable for your area, it's not excessive. I wouldn't go through the expense of putting bars on my windows out here where I live, but in Birmingham, AL, or in the Orange Mound neighborhood in Memphis, TN, they are pretty much a necessity.
