    Blind spot in situational awareness Are you guilty of having one?

    I believe that we are creating a blind spot in situational awareness by always referring to the BG- Bad Guy and have male BG targets. I believe that the female BG should not be overlooked in education of situational awareness. Male ego’s may in many cases prevent them from assessing the Bad Gal properly. Just a passing though. Are you just as cautious when approached by a lady? The BG backup could be Bonnie ( of Bonnie and Clyde) or who knows what--I'm just saying have you ever seen a Bad Gal in a training video? are you blinded by the smile?

    Oh my. Never considered a "bad gal". Certainly possible, but I would think rare. You have opened my eyes to a blind spot in my SA. I would think nothing amiss if a woman approached me in a parking lot. I forget criminals are "equal opportunity" bad people. Reminds me of the famous "naked woman at the door" thread.

    BG's have no gender as far as I'm concerned. Not an issue with me.

    sorry ladies, but *WOMEN ARE CRAZY*

    just thos morning there was a thing on the radio about two women got into a fight, one bit the others toe off. think about that for a sec. most dudes get into a fight and it's usually head locks and sloppy punches, followed by rolling around on the ground, and more sloppy punches. but women, i mean, what position were they in, and you just bit her toe off? i would thing a "bad gal" would be an even more cunning ambush predator than a man. i don't think she is going to let you see her coming across the parking lot. any woman who has been in enough bad places to be an armed robber or other such that we worry about and carry our guns, is going to be one tough cookie, she's probably going to have been raped, multiple times, especially when she was younger, and now she is a scarred, and extremely dangerous "alley cat". dude's have the ego, they want to prove how tough they are, a woman in that situation, already knows all to well men can overpower her if she lets them, she is not going to let them. honestly, the thought of this scares me much more than a man, men are predictable, kind of, but a bad woman? i thik she is going to to decisivley drop you before you even know what's going on.

    I remember the story of the pretty young 18 year old girl who lurrierd this man from the bar back to her place ... where 3 armed men were waited . Luckily our not so lucky man keep something other then his pride in his pants and let them have it .

    So yeah trust but verify . Even children these day may shank you over a video game ...

    Criminal come in all shapes and colors. But I will say that women tend not to used guns as much as men for crimes they are more subilty . But its been a while since I read that ..

    Let's just label BG as the ignorant.

    My blind spot is wherever I'm not looking at the moment. I guess I should learn to spin my head Linda Blair style so that I would never have one like some claim.
