    I really like Mass. Another great video. I'm currently reading his The Gun Digest of Concealed Carry. I don't agree with him 100% on everything, but I'm close to 95%-97%.

    As a somewhat of a beginner in defensive carry this video gave me a lot to think about. Great post

    Great example of where many of us fall down on our SA.

    Important points.

    Years ago, I read the In The Gravest Extreme and Stressfire books, and I've also personally had a couple carjacking attempts against me fail because of a couple of these steps.

    It's been decades since I first began to do many of the steps suggested: to come at my car from a distance/angle; keep my head on a swivel; evaluate the car next to mine; scan the interior of my car for anyone there; keep eyes open for threats coming up behind/around me; get in quickly; lock doors immediately after entry; start/move car as soon as able to do so. Haven't been surprised or overpowered since starting these things, years ago. (Not that it couldn't happen tomorrow, even so.)

    Some of the training I've done has pushed awareness of such procedures as well. Including Mas in his LFI courses. (Thanks, Mas.)

    Great video. It just goes to show that you can't be "too aware" of your surroundings.

    It's important to note that getting in and out of your vehicle; and going to and from your vehicle are two of the most mundane things we do in our lives. How many thousands of times a year do you do that?

    It's not hard to guess that a lot of ambush type attacks takes place in and around a person's vehicle. I'm also guessing that's because criminals and predators have taken notice that people seem to be most vulnerable at that point. They all observe their targets during the selection process to see if they are an easy target, and after hundreds of observations, noting that people tend to not be paying attention during that time, they capitalize on that point of vulnerability.

    So, while a person likely can not be on alert 100% of the time, everywhere you go... you should at least make the effort be alert when going to and from your vehicle, each and every time.

    As usual, Massad is spot on with his advice. The key to all of this is to make it a habit so that even when you are not actively thinking about your awareness it will be set up to work for, not against you.

    A point not made in the video but even more common than the ambush, is a car simply pulling out into your path because the driver did not see you. It is always a good idea to scan the interiors of all the cars you are approaching to be aware of possible problems.

    I like the idea of dropping one's keys to appear casual.

    BTW, while you are down there checking under the cars, look for cans, bottles, nails, packages, anything that may be about to get run over by your tires.
