PHOENIX, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- It's not hard to catch many gun owners in this trap. Walk them through a mental exercise about home self defense.
Mentally set up an assault scenario, and let them come out the victor.
Then surprise them at the end with the idea that the goon they beat had an accomplice they didn't see or even think about, and they end up losing. Works almost every time.
United States Concealed Carry's excellent magazine adds a novel wrinkle — the Tail Gunner. That's the hoodlum in the restaurant, planted there before a stickup, to act like just another victim and keep watch for undercover cops — or CCW heroes — to take them out.
It's yet another good reason to generally prefer a seat with your back to a wall, with a view of the room, near an exit, and to avoid being a freelance police officer. Besides, it's better for ogling. Am I allowed to say that?
A new gun safety rule from my recent book After You Shoot ( http://tiny.cc/wgrk7w ) : “It's always better to avoid a gun fight than to win one.” If innocent life doesn't immediately depend on it, hold your fire. Click the link above, for your copy to read more.
