Every day tactical
#1
Woke up this morning thinking of this subject. The jist of it is what do you do on a daily basis to give your self a tactical advantage. Or something you think you need to change or work on to be ahead of the game.

For example: I carry my key for my truck on a separate key chain then my house keys. And as a habit I would carry the truck key in my front right hand pocket. I also carry my 1911 at about 3:00 on my right side. So I woke up with the realization that if I needed to get into the truck in a hurry while my gun is in my strong hand that I would need to empty that hand to retrieve my keys.

The solution is as easy as putting the keys in my left hand pocket.

Every once in a while, I walk around my house and look for ways that I would break into my house if I was a criminal. I look for things laying around that they might use to pry open a door, or break a window. I then adjust/add cameras, flood lights, locks, etc.

Hoping my neighbors house is easier to break into than mine.

Part of my job at work is to think like a criminal and then conduct investigative research on my findings if I were to consider using these things as a criminal at my company. I would then attempt to strengthen the "weaknesses" I discovered and investigate these weaknesses to determine if anybody from my company all ready "took advantage" of my findings. Simply put, one of my several duties at my job is security consulting.

always...

everyday, everywhere i'm watching people, assessing my possible cover positions if the shit should hit the fan, being mindful not to back myself into corners or jams etc...

you should be able to go about your daily routine and know that when you see gun, knife, bat, pipe etc that your instinct will kick in and you will react accordingly.

I generally try to keep my gun on one side and my keys/cell phone on the other for the same reason the OP mentioned.

Like what the OP just did, I find that running through different scenarios in my head until the BG is in custody helps prepare me for situations I may find myself in. Came in handy a couple of times, too!

I eat breakfast. Most important thing you can do, tactically. I remember how sluggish I was (both mentally and physically) before I started eating a good breakfast regularly.

I also use my EDC knife as a keychain, and keep it in my left pocket like the above mentioned truck keys, but it's also my backup weapon.

6 months ago I made the effort to start keeping my keys in my left pocket for exactly the same reasons. No easy task since I had been doing the exact opposite for as long as I can remember. My keys are all together on one key chain but I keep my house key on a detachable thingy.

5 hour energy. Seriously this stuff gets me going in the morning and keeps me going all day.

Keep the damn doors locked all the time. In the house or in the car it doesn't matter, just keep em locked. Locks aren't threat stoppers but they sure make people work harder (and make more noise) to get in.

When the kids get a little older I want to get them involved in a plan of action for a home invasion or intrusion. They are far too young now to climb out their windows so the name of the game is we get to them ASAP and by any means necessary.

Keeping an eye on this thread for ideas, good subject.

That's something we've been talking about here, but haven't come up with anything yet. One thing we have discussed is getting the fire escape ladder and putting it in one of our back rooms. If something were to happen, fire/home invasion, we could corral everyone in that room and have an escape route out the back of the house.

5-hour energy is chemically equivalent to a shot of these and a cuppa joe. Hopefully this saves you some dough.
