    I could never figure out why, on saturday morning at my bank, people stand in line at the ATM outside of the bank instead of going inside.
    Maybe the bank has gunbuster signs up and the folks are carrying?

    One problem with that concept. You're effectively in a box that restricts your movements. All it takes is one BG hiding and popping up to your door with a gun in your face at the right moment and yer screwed. At least out of the car you stand a fighting chance...just my thoughts.

    Yes. This is exactly what concerns me when I use the drive up ATM machine at my local bank. The way it is situated, I can't see if someone is coming from the other side.

    As I read somewhere (Andy Stanford of Options for Personal Security?) the keys to stay out of trouble are:"Avoidance, Deterrence, De-escalation".
    I haven't been at an ATM for many, many years; if I were a BG in need of a few quick bucks, ATM ambush would be one of my first choices...
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    Search YouTube for CrossFit - ATM STRATEGY with Tony Blauer. Can't post link - Mods would get me for a foul language post, but he makes good points.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
