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!
