0246 - Dealing with Christmas Trash Safely

/
When it comes to security and safety, many times, many people are feeling a bit too warm and fuzzy to give it much consideration. Any time own safety and security isn't at the forefront is a time when we need to be particularly concerned. It is these time that we can be caught off guard by simple things. It doesn't take a complex situation to make life unpleasant, unsafe, or deadly. Make sure you keep that in mind when you dispose of your Christmas trash.

0245 - The Christmas Spirit

/
Lets not forget that because it is Christmas we owe it to our husbands and wives, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers to be there to enjoy Christmas this year and for many more to come. Embrace the Christmas Spirit, but never forget that your innocent life has much more value than the life of scum no matter what time of year it is, and not just to your family, but to society as a whole. When someone has earned it, there is nothing wrong with giving the gift of multiple palm strikes to the face or shots to the torso. Get in the spirit and be generous!

0244 - Last Minute Christmas Shopping Cart Tactics

Here I am with something in both hands when it hits the fan. Because of how our bodies are wired even if I want to open my hand, drop my Angry Bird, and draw my pistol, I might find that to be a challenging prospect based on the grasp reflex that is often experienced in stressful situations. We can see this reaction in dash cam video where law enforcement engage in serious life or death conflicts while holding their citation book in their support hand. It is as if some one has bound the book to the hand. Imagine me, unable to break my grasp on a fluffy stuffed animal, unable to draw my pistol, beating off two dirtbags with a fluffy stuffed animal in each hand. A flailing, furry, mess for sure. Yeah, this is the kind of stuff that goes through my head.

0242 - Use Holiday Cards to Update Your Contacts

Lets face it. When you NEED to get a hold of someone, you NEED to get a hold of someone. The situation might be as simple as a flat tire or a dead car battery, or as serious as a sick family member or a missing child. In times of need, those individuals who have resources are more likely to influence their outcome. Resources come in many shapes and sizes. In a violent encounter we may draw on our training resources, our CCW, or our unarmed combative skills, but in all of the examples I gave above, car problems or a sick or missing family member communication might be vital to resolving the situation. With our modern communication devices, there is no reason that you should not have all of the information you need right at your fingertips. A mechanic or tow truck, no problem. These resources can make dealing with automotive challenges a breeze. Although dealing with a sick or missing family member is typically a much more severe issue, again communication can help. Having poison control, the family doctor and emergency resources at your finger tips can mean the difference between life and death. When your teenager isn't where they are supposed to be, having their school number, work number and all of their friends numbers ready to use could make the difference between a sigh of relief and a long night of worrying or worse!

It snowed today, and it got me thinking about Christmas. It is a happy time and that is all the more reason that we should take some extra precautions to make sure it will stay that way. In addition when we look at specific situations and events, if we really pay attention, we can apply what we learn to other situations as well.
