Don't go to stupid places. Don't do stupid things. Don't hang out with stupid people.
Also my grandfather always said " If you don't have any business there without a gun, You don't have any business there with a gun"

If you notice someone printing, there is no need to say anything, especially in public. A simple glance and a nod is enough.

Stay in good humor.
Just cause the other guys an idiot doesn't mean I have to meet him on his grounds.
I avoid places that I can't carry, other than church and work.
Carry a spare mag, because the first one may fail.
When traveling or at night I carry a BUG or two.
Always carry a cellphone, never know if I have to dial-a-prayer.

When driving I keep the doors locked.
I dress to carry.
I've read up on body language. When a second or two may save your bacon, it worth knowing if someone is upto no good
If I have to hug, I make sure that my carryarm is lower than their arm lest they aren't prepared to meet Sandy.
A good KISS self-defense class is a must... hopefully if life goes sideways all I would need to do is slug them in the nose or throat. I'd be happy if Sandy never leaves my side.
