    The Knockout Game, something to be aware of.

    We all know that if we, as armed citizens, get knocked out, the scum bag will have easy access to our weapon. So this is something to be aware of the next time you are out and see a group of young men who are loitering around looking like they are up to no good.

    Definitely something to be on the lookout for.

    They better hope I got out on the first punch, otherwise lead is going to start flying. Hopefully my awareness prevents this altogether.

    Another sad use for cell-phone "social networking" is the latest craze for "flash mobs" who can quickly assemble from nowhere and raid a store or pounce some innocent individual to get their sick jollies. It's just another example of where everyone must always stay alert to everything around them.

    I've crossed the street or taken a different route a number of times to avoid getting too close to a group of kids who are hanging out or slowly walking along with no obvious reason and no apparent "openly social" conversation going on between them (especially if one or more of them is looking my way more than usual) - seldom is that ever a good sign with any group you see at an unusual time or in any place where few other people are around.

    During the cooler time of year when I wear a jacket or coat, I always prefer either a carry vest or shoulder-holster since it's much easier to draw from while wearing any kind of outerwear. When coming back from a Thanksgiving trip to Oklahoma last month, I stopped at a large, well lighted, gas station beside an off-ramp of I-35 around midnight to grab a soft-drink and "walk the dog". When I came back out, there was a group of about 7 teenagers milling around the edge of the parking area and about 50 feet from my truck who were laughing and talking among themselves, but paying a lot more attention to me than I was comfortable with. When I looked in their direction, then slid my hand inside my coat to cover my weapon, their attention suddenly diverted completely away from me while I got into my truck. Once I was back out on the highway ramp, I pulled over and called 911 to give them the name and location of the store and told them about the unusual group in case anyone wanted to check it out. I have no idea if they had bad intentions or not, but I did my duty and headed on down the highway.

    "I went to the store and saw a group of kids who looked out of place, suspicious, but I shrugged it off."

    Take heed!

    Agreed - better SA would generally avoid this type of thing. I have at times avoided walking down a certain path in a parking lot due to a lot of unruly looking juveniles gathered together. I have also placed my hand on my gun (under my jacket) when things looked suspicious, which would give me an extra second or two tactical advantage if I needed to draw.

    Right or wrong, this would have been my action.

    The minute I see a group of teens, I usually maintain my distance when I walk past them. I also raise one hand to my head pretending to rub my head or face in order to provide some defense against a sucker punch. This stuff has been going on for quite a while now, especially in Boston, MA and other New England states.

    Last few replies say it all. Situational awareness should be number one on your list whether you are CC or not. If you are CC you should notice things like this and do anything that creates distance and a chance to assess. Sounds like common sense but mindless walking and strolling anywhere can easily lead to a lapse in your defense. Someone charges me and I am CC I will retreat if I can but will certainly consider my situation as imminent danger if I cannot and yada yada yada.

    I read about this, another of those scenarios that I have run through my head, try to get away, but I cannot move as fast as I once did. SA is the ticket.
