Handgun carry permit dates for summer 2012

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

I have posted the dates we have for summer so far. Looks like we may work in a Sunday class in May.

The victim interview.

Saturday, April 7th, 2012

This may the most important interview you ever get right. During the victim interview process the bad guy is trying to find out how good a victim you will be. Naturally you want them to believe you are not worth the effort.
You can accomplish this in a few different ways. One, by making them feel their efforts will be in vain. In this you can make them believe they are likely to be injured or caught in their attempt to victimize you. You can make them believe you do not have anything that would make it worth the effort to attack you for.

We have this need to be somewhat nice to people, especially people we don’t know. Predators will use this to get close to us. They will do things that make us feel uncomfortable to see how we react. If we do not seem to be willing to protect ourselves they will see this as the green light.
This is a common tactic be it from a child snatcher or a masher in the work place.
Listen to your instincts. If you feel that someone is up to no good listen to that. Start coming up with standard responses to threats. If some one gets to close in a parking lot challenge them. If someone at work is making unwelcome advances stop them.

These standard responses will be covered more thoroughly in my next post on the OODA loop.
