I have been thinking about this as I review in my mind what I would have done in some of the recent well publicized shooting events. Iguess it's something we all do in our preparation for such an event if it were to happen to us.
You sage and wise pros may have discussed this already but after searching, I can't find what I'm looking for on the topic.
What do you think about carrying (in a weak side pocket) a neon reflective velcro attached arm band that you can quickly wrap around your arm as an identifying feature?
This would of course only work well in a scenario such as the VT campus or mall shooting in Salt Lake City, Utah where the BG is roaming (albiet quickly) and you have time to call 911 (or have someone else call) and pass along the neon arm band info. Or... in a situation where you have taken the BG down and are waiting for LEO's to arrive and want to be sure they have some help identifying who is who.
Is this a good idea but maybe difficult to implement with mass quantities of adrenalin pumping, a bad idea or does it have some merit?
Least someone misunderstand me... I'm not even advocating taking the time to attach an arm band before drawing on a BG in a situation where speed is of the essence. That just wouldn't even be a consideration in that situation.
