    Bad: robbed in restroom in the restaurant

    Here's the story

    Also an armed home invasion at the bottom of the page...

    Kinda hard to react when the gun in your hand is a Trouser Mauser.

    That's one extremely vulnerable instance when your "situation awareness" attention is diverted to maintaining trouser-mauser aim on another target with your "strong arm", back turned to everything else, and leaving only your "weak arm" available to cross-draw a backward firearm if you even saw a problem coming.

    Looks like we must begin practicing software deployment and operation with the "weak arm" so the "strong arm" is free to cover the hardware while concurrently wearing one of those bicycle rider's headband-mounted rearview mirrors to keep one eye on what's going on behind us.

    Maybe just easier for two CC people to go together and take turns standing guard while the other does business as usual

    My theory is ... to turn around and while soaking their pants and shoes, and they are momentarily distracted and surprised, I'm pulling my gun.

    distraction, revenge and a clean shoot all rolled in to one. I like it!
