    I agree with that. Just pay attention to what is going on around you. Things can go bad in a hurry when that very very minimal statistical anomaly occurs. When I was deployed we were located in a country that was Muslim and was considered an ally. So no firearms when you went of base. We also had to wear civilian clothes and drive civilian vehicles. Nothing bad happened but there were a few minor incidents that could have. I think being aware and brain engagement will get you through. Worrying about what may happen with the chances that are so small it won't happen will not. Being elsewhere is also good advice. Don't tempt fate. If you have to be in a bad place take care of business and be elsewhere afterwords
    Puerto Rico comes to mind when you mentioned things going bad in a foreign country. My brother was Air Force and deployed at the drop of a hat. When they went to Puerto Rico, they were told "if you are driving off base and someone hits you - do not stop! Drive to a police station or back to base to report it.' If they were lucky, they would only be robbed and the vehicle stolen. Over the years, I have heard the same advice in DC, Atlanta, and a few other cities.

    A tactic I have heard of near a major airport in the U.S. (but the name of the airport/town escapes me), is lurk on a rise near the last gas station heading to the airport. When the people stop to top off before turning in their rental cars, several "youth" coast down on bicycles from the darkness to the pumps. Situation goes from safe to surrounded in 60 seconds or less.

    Your WISDOM, Ben. I usually enjoy your comments.

    Oh.

    That's a bad bet. I'm 6 years older than when this thread started. I've lost a bunch of IQ points during those years.

    But I have learned one thing: The minute I come to believe I possess any sort of wisdom about anything, life will prove me very, very wrong.

    One reason I always buy the tank up front.

    I just don't know about that part. If you carry you should expect to use it. I have used Jeff Cooper's color codes for years before I knew about them. They just define and identify the level of awareness. I stay in Yellow when out in publc.

    you know the old saying,.. "always be coureous and polite and have a plan to kill everyone in the roon"

    I can be out in public and have a good time eating in resturants or shopping, but I'm always watching for a threat as well
    From the Tom Grieve channel a brief explanation of Jeff Cooper's Color Codes; If you are a regular of the [Tom Grieve] channel then you know that I constantly harp about education and training. There are so many things that could be covered, but what can we really zero in on as a real world difference maker that I have seen help REAL clients SURVIVE *or* would have kept them out of serious trouble?

    It all starts with situational awareness. You win when you avoid the fight.

    That was before you and I started competing over which side of the table we sit on.
