Stay on your toes this time of year and all the time. If you carry, you carry the responsibility of being at the ready. Train your a$$ off mentally and physically and fire your weapons multiple times a week. Don't be a victim.

This time of year people are susceptible to putting blinders on and just going about their business. Stay on point, watch your surroundings at all times, and have the ability to react/respond to a threat with swift violence.

Picked up a new holster for the .45 from Crossbreed Holsters. The SuperTuck Deluxe (thanks to my awesome wife!). Wow! Great holster, will have it forever.

As always, be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

Hope my conservative friends have a great Christmas. To the libs, I hope you have a happy holiday... :D :P

Being Blindsided by a Band of Schmuck's in a Mall parking lot seems to be quite popular these days. Hell,one Schmuck's too many. Dr. Walker,I'm afraid,delivers the plain and unabashed Truth,and it's a real Puker! Please stay out of Harm's Way,and even Jesus had eyeballs,so please use yours. Situational Awareness is a fancy way of saying "Know what's going on"......And keep yourself and your Family in the Clear! Merry Christmas,Pilgrims!

Did you, by chance, check the link out? There's some reason to be semi-paranoid in this society unfortunately. I'm in a very safe region by comparison but that doesn't stop me from being totally aware of my surroundings all of the time.

Merry Christmas to all of you as well.

Reading that article has my blood boiling with fury!! :mad:

That man is dead, because New Jersey's communist gun laws prevent the law abiding from carrying firearms for self defense, without a "good reason" - decided by government officials. :mad: :mad:

When the law-abiding are prevented from exercising their Second Amendment RIGHTS, then only the lawless will have guns. Perfect example right here.

WOW ... I need to have a shot or two ...

Excellent post Rwalker - can never be too aware, no matter where we live.

Merry Christmas to all! :)

The only problem with the link was that even with a gun, both arms full & a gun to the head there isn't much you can do. He had already made the mistakes, in an upscale mall like that the criminals know where the security is (if any) & if you make that mistake it can cost your life. With most newer cars having the keyless systems they need the people to get the car. They have 4 in custody, won't help him & the family but may save others if they are the ones.
The difference I was referring to is that a sincere person will wish a joyful Christmas to one & all IMHO. Just saying.

I would still prefer to be armed. Its not a coincidence these crimes happen in areas that the probability of the victim will not be armed.

In a classic study, researchers Betty Grayson and Morris I. Stein asked convicted criminals to view a video of pedestrians walking down a busy New York City sidewalk, unaware they were being taped. The convicts had been to prison for violent offenses such as armed robbery, rape, and murder.

Within a few seconds, the convicts identified which pedestrians they would have been likely to target. What startled the researchers was that there was a clear consensus among the criminals about whom they would have picked as victims—and their choices were not based on gender, race, or age. Some petite, physically slight women were not selected as potential victims, while some large men were.

The researchers realized the criminals were assessing the ease with which they could overpower the targets based on several nonverbal signals—posture, body language, pace of walking, length of stride, and awareness of environment. Neither criminals nor victims were consciously aware of these cues. They are what psychologists call "precipitators," personal attributes that increase a person's likelihood of being criminally victimized.

The researchers analyzed the body language of the people on the tape, and identified several aspects of demeanor that marked potential victims as good targets. One of the main precipitators is a walking style that lacks "interactional synchrony" and "wholeness." Perpetrators notice a person whose walk lacks organized movement and flowing motion. Criminals view such people as less self-confident—perhaps because their walk suggests they are less athletic and fit—and are much more likely to exploit them.

Just like predators in the wild, armed robbers often attack the slowest in the herd. People who drag their feet, shuffle along, or exhibit other unusual gaits are targeted more often than people who walk fast and fluidly.

That criminals are attuned to cues of vulnerability makes sense given that most criminals, especially murderers, are looking for people who will be easy to control. Even rape is motivated less by sex and more by the desire for control and power.


Like I said before, putting blinders on. I never carry bags from the store, I always push a cart. If we have 1 cart, the wife pushes it. I watch everyone from the minute I leave the car until the minute we are secure inside the car and moving. I make eye contact with everyone, never looking down, and always scanning my environment. My wife being raised in Detroit has made her the same automatically. Not looking like a target is #1. If you look like you are going to break your foot off in someone's ass, you are typically avoided. Even the inmates at work tell me I always look pissed off and ready to snap out. I tell them I look like this all the time. ;)

From the way the article reads, he had already packed his bags in the car as he opened his wife's door and let her in, then went around to his door. That was when he was surrounded. A gun to my head and there is a good chance I am a goner, but I am not going out without a fight and they damn sure better pull the trigger. If they don't, I chase every one of them down and shoot them. Period. Will I go to court? Yep, but I will take my chances. Don't miss, and for God's sake if you are going to draw down on me pull the trigger before I have a chance to get my gun out or you wont have a chance to wish you did.

Some call it paranoid, and I am good with that. When the wolf comes calling, I will answer his call with swift violence. Sometimes violence IS the only answer.

And Fred, I was being sincere. Some people don't use the word Christmas, it offends them. Especially liberals. They want the bible out of everything... :P

RW, not trying to make anything of it but just where do you get all your beliefs? How do you think the word holidays came from? Finally which bible are you speaking of since the cons are trying to rewrite the so far accepted one's because they believe it to be too liberal? And are you serious, it makes me wonder how you can even hold on to a gun permit, no wonder some are so afraid of any type of background checks or questions. And no offense meant, it's just that I have never somewhat run across a person like you & I have a real diversified background but somehow none of my friends ever considered how they would kill everyone.

Sam in case you still havent figured it out 95% of everything I say pertaining to liberals is to elicit a respnse out of you. Sadly it works nearly every time. As far as back ground checks go...bring it on! Zero criminal history and zero psychological history. I guess because I believe in swift immediate justice and dislike scum bag criminals it makes me a nut. So be it. I certainly do not need your approval. We have rights...I chose to protect myself and my family at all costs. You make your own choices sam.
