    Just Want To Say Thanks

    I'm new here on the site and have been reading through the scenarios section for a few evenings now. I wanted to thank everyone personally for posting all the great scenarios and real life stories, as well as the useful comments and suggestions. I've made it to about 8 pages and have learned a huge amount about how to be prepared and situational awareness that I hope I never have to use, but will be glad I read all this if I do.

    So Thank You everyone! I think every member should read as much of this section as possible.

    The people who come to DC are pretty good.

    There are many very knowledgeable people who participate in some of the discussions. Many folks have been 'round the dance floor a few times, so there is a lot of experience with real life scenarios. Many of the scenarios posted are hypothetical, sure, but a lot of the responses from folks come from actual situations in their lives.

    BTDT, myself, a few times. It's not pretty. It's not something you try to remember. But there are certainly elements that stay with a person. For a fact, I've learned some simple, base lessons that have changed how I see the world. As a result of 20yrs+ of adjusting, the way I scan and view things is simply a part of me, a part of how I go about my daily life. It's no longer much of an effort or a concern, though I won't go unarmed wherever I go.

    Welcome from New Mexico! You'll find this Forum doesn't tolerate the back biting and bickering that's so common on other forums.

    Welcome from Oklahoma, don't post a lot, but there is so much info.
