    Never a booth,always a table. More comfy and better from a SD standpoint.
    Always face the entrance (remember Wild Bill).
    Cops usually sit at rear corner table.

    When I walk in a building I try to picture the general layout of the building/the exits/the windows, take a sweeping glance at the room with as much tact as possible (make it look as though I'm looking for a friend), and find a place to sit against the wall.

    If my SO is carrying I'll let him sit with his back to the wall, able to see the exits, the register, and view of parking lot (if possible). If we're both carrying its a free-for-all of who gets to the good seat first. Lol

    I prefer to sit where I can see what's going on, but I'm not adamant about it.

    I'll sit where seated, preferr a table over booth, have my back towards the wall and look for alternate exit points as well. This is not something new since CC'ing but has been a practice for years. You just never know.

    I always set at a table with my back toward the wall and watch the doors while eating with my family.

    I like to sit where I can see people comming in and out (back against a wall if possible). Not for defensive reasons however, there is no particular reason.

    If the waitress seats me, then asks if I would like the special, "aces and eights", I may ask to be seated elsewhere

    Since my wife and I both carry, we tend to sit where we can each see half the room, whith one of us facing the front door of the place and the other facing the back so we both can watch who is coming and going and what is happening. Now that my oldest son is 21 and is going to be getting his carry permit soon, we will have one more armed adult in the group. (He lives with us still while going through trade school)

    What is the point of hypothetical threads such as this one?

    The fact is, playing out scenarios is a waste of time... Logically, nobody knows when a self defense situation can or will occur! If you or me had a crystal ball, none of us would ever be in a situation where an armed conflict could arise.

    I know this to be fact because I use to think about different scenarios. The one and only time I've drawn, my female neighbor was being attacked outside and I was three feet outside my apt door (a scenario I never considered; me sitting on the couch at home and having to take a few steps out the front door).

    People have been playing out what if scenarios for thousands of years. Most sports are adaptations of war games. Played to teach children how to fight. Even checkers and chess are used to teach the strategies of war.
    Target practice is only training for the final act. The mind games discussing strategies that we do here and even at Military Colleges are training for everything prior to that final act. They might even prevent the use of force.
