Rule Four – A Variant

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT’S BEYOND.

Female and Armed recently had a post with regard to gender bias.  Specifically, males under attack by females becoming victims because their gender bias predisposes them to let their guard down, until it’s too late.

I recall a police procedure textbook wherein one chapter was dedicated to officer survival.  Two examples stick in my brain:  1)  A well-endowed female subject flaunting her attributes toward the officer from the driver’s seat.  In between her legs was a small pistol, all but invisible to most male viewers of the photo – because they were distracted by her ample bosom.  2)  An officer enters a small motel lobby to confront an armed robber.  A female witness/hostage turns out to be the robber’s accomplice, shooting the officer from behind.  After all, these were women, and no threat to civil authority!

Watch your back, Jack (or Jane)!  Whether you’re a cop or a civilian.  Cops generally have backup-you do not.  Just because you are a legally-armed CCW holder doesn’t mean the bad guys won’t try something.  And the bad guys might just be girls!

  1. Good point. I’m rarely in Condition White these days, even at home. It costs nothing to be aware of one’s surroundings, and might just save your life. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Indeed… assumptions can kill you so easily.

    And the female doesn’t even need to be an active threat or accomplice…

    One day I was returning to my car in a WalMart parking lot in the next state. Between my car and the next, I found a man hitting a woman in the face – so hard she was pressed against the passenger side of the next car. I shouted at him to STOP and he turned partly to face me, quite obviously saw the gun in my holster, and ran around to get into the driver’s side of the car without a word.

    The woman was crying and her lip was split. I asked her if she wanted me to call for medical assistance. She turned really nasty and loudly told me to mind my own business, climbed into the car and they roared off.

    WHEW!! I’m very glad the man did not present a real threat to me because, if I’d had to shoot, the woman would not have been a friendly witness – and right then there were no others.

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
