Still, there are some very important elements on that list, for anyone concerned about avoiding/surviving a dangerous encounter.
- Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
- Don't drop your guard.
- Have a plan.
- Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.
- Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them).
- In combat, there are no rules, always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
- Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.
- Use a weapon that works EVERY TIME. "All skill is in vain when an Angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket."
- Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
- Someday someone may kill you with your own weapon, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
- Use cover or concealment as much as possible. The visible target should be in FRONT of YOUR weapon.
Good tips, no matter who you are.
Even if not a Marine.
