Sunday Sermon: Killed with Your Own Gun

The mindset of fighting is not honed overnight, nor through a single concealed carry class. The mindset is developed through continuous trial, error, and repetition. Until you can envision no other outcome but problem solving and it is second nature.

I’m not talking about the grandiose hero fantasy, article on that coming, but the realistic on the move problem solving necessary to survive.

Have you developed the will to fight. The will to act. The mindset to implement observation, action, observation, action, into an efficient and if necessary lethal response.

When speaking with someone you can gauge their actual preparedness by their responses. An unprepared person has an overly detailed response, it’s what they think you want to hear combined with a little action fantasy.

Prepared people give simple responses, fewest steps, minimized risks, maximum chances of success.

These people will, if they die, die with empty guns.

This is not a fanciful or bravos notion, but a mentality of problem solving.
