Personal Protection Tip: Add A Tactical Pen To Your EDC

Personal Protection Tip: Carry A Tactical Pen
Persons concerned about their personal safety when venturing into Pistol-Free Zones should consider carrying a "Tactical Pen" as an improvised personal protection tool. Tactical Pens are fully functional writing implements which do not typically fall under banned item lists and are hidden in plain sight during contraband checks.

A Tactical Pen's relatively small size enables it to be easily accessed from either a shirt pocket or from the pocket of a pair of pants.

With a modicum of widely available training, a Tactical Pen can be wielded and utilized as effectively as a kubaton, which may actually be banned in some locations. Many Tactical Pens available in the marketplace are manufactured with a housing made of aerospace grade anodized aluminum. As such, they are lightweight and have an ergonomic form optimized for "ice pick" and "forward" grips to deliver effective defensive strikes to an assailant.

Moreover, many models are equipped with a special "glass break" tip that can shatter automobile windows, which can be of great usefulness in an emergency.

A Tactical Pen is a worthy item to be added to your EDC (Every Day Carry).

Personal Protection Tip: You Are Not Safe

Personal Protection Tip: You Are Not Safe
As a faithful fan of AMC's hit TV series "The Walking Dead," I witnessed one of the main characters - Rick Grimes - deliver some cold and unemotional facts to his son about personal safety:

"You are not safe. No matter how many people are around or how clear the area looks. No matter what anybody says. No matter what you think. You are not safe. Don't let your guard down - ever."

That aforementioned advice best represents a mindset that people should have in their conscious minds if they truly desire to be safe in our society. An incident of violent crime can instantly appear at any time of the day in any location. That violence can be manifested in any number of ways: a violent predator, disgruntled ex-worker, an ex-lover, a stalker, a loose attacking animal, or a road rager.

You are responsible for your safety. If you are attacked, assaulted, or harmed, you can't legally blame and hold accountable some other person for your plight - including the 9-1-1 Operator or your local police department. Many people have been attacked in broad daylight in front of a crowd. Those bystanders are not required to come to your aid and most of them choose not to do so. They do not want to get involved and do not want to risk their safety to help you.

You are responsible for your safety. Do not let anybody tell you that you don't need to learn how to keep yourself and your family safe. Do not let somebody tell you that you do not need a firearm for personal protection. That is their opinion and they are entitled to it. However, you are not bound by it. In fact, many of the people who tell you not to prepare for danger are the very people who own guns: politicians, clergy, and community activists. They are elitists who believe that your life and your safety is not as important as theirs.

You are responsible for your safety. Every bit of training you have taken and all of the knowledge you have acquired on the subject of personal safety is all for naught, if you allow your yourself to be complacent and lax in your awareness and your readiness. You must always be ready. You must always be alert. You must have the ability to instinctively take action when danger appears.

You are responsible for your safety.There is a fine line between being ready and being paranoid. On any given day, somebody is going to be murdered, raped, robbed, carjacked, or home-invaded. The difference between surviving and dying could very well be the simple act of never letting your guard down wherever you may be.

You are responsible for your safety.

Personal Protection Minute: Warning Shots

Personal Protection Minute: Warning Shots

It is a bad idea to ever consider firing warning shots even in localities where it is legal. If your life is in reasonable and imminent danger of at least great bodily harm, then eliminate the threat. 

If you are unwilling to do so, then you should not carry a firearm for personal protection. Whereas lawfully using a firearm for self-defense is often a last resort tactic, the failure to do so when the threat is imminent can lead to bad consequences: warning shots, struck bystanders, stolen gun, being harmed, and etc. 

No credible Firearms Instructor will teach you to issue warning shots when your life is reasonably in imminent danger. If your life is "reasonably" in imminent danger, you either shoot the threat or do not shoot at all.

Today's tip was inspired from a news story out of WV, whereby it is alleged that a man and his wife were accosted by nine men who verbally threatened to harm them. The man, reportedly, drew his lawfully carried firearm and issued a warning shot at the sky. The nine men fled the scene. The "victim" was then arrested and charged with the crime of "Wanton Endangerment."

Personal Protection Tip: Consider Hiring A House-Sitter

Personal Protection Tip: Consider Hiring A House-Sitter
If you are going to be away from your home for a while, you should consider employing the services of a house-sitter. The sitter could either be a professional whose track record and references you have vetted or a trusted relative or friend. An occupied residence is less likely to be targeted for a home invasion.
For maximum effect, the sitter should be entrusted with the following tasks, as applicable: snow removal, lawn maintenance, mail collection, flyer removal, taking trash cans to the curb, and etc.

Personal Protection Tip: Cover Door Peep-Holes

Personal Protection Tip: Cover Door Peep-Holes

Peep-Holes are great security devices to have installed in doors because they allow home-owners or hotel guests to see who is on the other side before making a decision to open it. However, if they are not covered when not in use, peep-holes can, under the right circumstances, create a security liability.
Nowadays, anybody possessing a device known as a "Compact Reverse Peep-Hole Camera" can easily look inside your home or hotel room to survey the landscape before launching an invasion. These devices are relatively inexpensive and can be bought  for under $40 at Amazon.
Thus, if you do not want bad guys to be able to survey your home or hotel room, you should install inexpensive peep-hole covers for your doors at home and purchase a portable model for use when you travel away from home.
