    True, but at the very least it reminds the BGs that some of us are out there and paying attention. We're not all sheep. Also, I have to think that in doing what you did and what we all do, particularly in less than stellar locations, a crime very likely was prevented.

    This is the first time I had seen this also. Obviously, it shows how fast an attack can come. I would have liked to have seen this earlier. The perp may have telegraphed something as they were coming in from the parking lot.

    I don't recall if it was here or at Brand X, but a poster was coming out of a ballgame. Two guys were walking right beside him and talking to each other about the game. Suddenly they turned on him, and were armed. He was armed, but couldn't do anything and....was an armed victim.

    The Bike comment is correct. You have to be alert for everything when you are on those things.

    With this close quarters thing in mind, I was murdering paper last Thursday, with a quick draw and shoot without extension with the target only about 5' out.

    Sgt T: Ray and I were at slots 2 and 3 at the Bullet Hole, and took advantage of the Thursday night 2 bucks for mixed drink cocktails at Austin's. Some days just don't get any better unless we could have been outside.

    Once again, Bebo you have started a much discussed very relevant thread. Dude, you just have the knack for sure.

    We need to pay attention to things that are out of place.
    Where I work, we spend hours watching 26 CCTV monitors flipping thru the feed from 56 cameras....needless to say can give you a headache. You don't actually WATCH the feeds, your eye is caught by something out of the ordinary. It is definitely something you have to learn, does not come natural.

    We all need to be more aware of our surroundings and what others are doing. We need to pay attention to things that are out of place. I am reminded of a line from the movie, Peaceful Warrior, "There is never nothing going on."
    Glad this is a stickey thread as this should be required reading for all Sheepdogs!
    To be vigilant, prepared and capable is more than a motto;
    it is a duty to those we love and care for.

    but because of those who look on and do nothing."....
