    ASD Quote

    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

    ―Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle

  • Christmas Shopping Safety

    As a supplement to Sgt T's great article Keep your Merry Christmas White by Staying in Yellow I wanted to add to it. He makes a great point about shopping in pairs, especially for women. Another point to consider is what you take with you into the Mall or Shopping Center. For the ladies, don't carry a purse if possible. If you have a concealed handgun in there, try to find an alternate carry method. If you are paying by check, take your checkbook and Drivers License in your pocket. If you are paying with credit, take your credit card and DL. You should also plan ahead and do this before getting to the store. Leave your purse at home if possible or store it in the trunk before leaving home. Don't put it in the trunk in the parking lot, you could be seen and a trunk isn't completely safe. A thief could access the trunk of most cars from the back seat.

    As mentioned, our heads should be on a swivel when exiting to the parking lot. Make eye contact with everyone around you. Most people are caught off guard and eye contact lets them know that you know they are there.

    The most important thing is to listen to your body. Those hairs on the back of your neck, they do have a sixth sense you should pay attention to. If you are very uncomfortable with a group hanging out near your car, go back inside and have a security officer walk you out. Our bodies will tell us when something isn't right. The key is to recognize it and not brush it off.

    Stay safe and stay vigilant everyone, have a safe Merry Christmas.
