0241 - The Throw Away Wallet

/
I try to make sure that all of my EDC items are EUI, as in Every Day Use. My TAW or throw away wallet is no exception. It is the wallet I use most often, and in a pinch it may serve as as way to avoid crime, keep it from escalating, or create the opportunity for you to turn the tables and dominate. If you don't have one, get yourself a throw away wallet.

0225 - Preparing for Cold Weather CCW

/
I really do like the cool weather of fall and winter. I know it doesn't come without its complications, but at the same time, I feel more able to mitigate those challenges than I do the challenges of hot weather. Today we are going to take a look at how we can more efficiently carry our self-defense tools in cold weather. The tips and tricks apply to all of the tools you might choose to carry, but we will focus on the handgun as our primary example. Enjoy the show, enjoy the season and have a great day!

0208 - An Evaluation of Manual Safeties in Fighting Handguns

/
Facing a violent encounter and prevailing can be quite a daunting task. Violent attacks are often a surprise for the victim. We know and understand that violence is fast and chaotic. We know that no matter our physical strength, our size, our training, our weapons and proficiency with them that we can lose because of the above factors. Today we will take a look at one of the common questions that people have when they are shopping for a self-defense handgun. Manual safety, or not?

0156 - Third Party Defense

/
Today's show is the third in a pretty loose series of episodes designed to help us to decide if we should get involved in situation that are taking place around us. Remember that to even have the opportunity to make a choice in the situations we are referring to in these shows, we have to be aware. Without awareness we are simply going to be bumbling in and out of situations without conscious control. We never want to give up control of our destiny so start out by being aware.

0154 - Even Though it Can Be Tough, MYOB!

/
Some of my family and friends laugh at me because of the things I notice when I am out and about. They never realize that I'm laughing right back at what they miss because they aren't paying attention, because they aren't paying attention. It is kind of a funny situation. For me, aware is the only way to be.

0145 - FF A Discussion of Violence and AOJP

/
K sent this video in suggesting it as a possible FF Video. I thought that it was a great example of some do's and dont's when it comes to violent encounters so into the que it went.

0136 - Get Some Rest: My Story

/
My wife and I are very blessed in that we have successfully structured our lives to place family as a top priority. This past weekend we made a trip to the south to spend time with extended family to celebrate a birthday. The drive we made was a total of about 13 hours. That amount of time in the car can certainly tire you out. It did me. Today we will take a look at the consequences that resulted from my fatigue.

0134 - SDFAQ Should I Carry Pepper Spray?

/
In my FSDUC courses one of the most common questions I get is, "Should I carry pepper spray." For me the answer is pretty simple. Of course. Today let's take a quick look at why and just a few of the MANY factors we need to consider.

0131 - LE Get Some Rest

/
It seems a bit silly to talk about the importance of sleep in staying safe, however, I'm guessing that more bad stuff happens every day due to fatigue than any other reason.

0128 - LE What Can Women Learn From This

/
I really appreciate the input that I get from my listeners. If you haven't found Sports Stole My Man you should check it out. Jen Posted up on my FB wall a link to this article Lululemon Robbery/Murder with the question: "What can women learn from this?" Great question, but I'm not surprised that's what good journalists do is ask good questions.
