What will the threat be?

Posted on: January 13th, 2015 by admin No Comments

What will the threat be? This young man walks up to homes in nice neighborhoods, rings the doorbell to see if anyone is home then breaks in; with a gun. What if you were home during such an incident or came home during the break in? Is this who you picture having to verbally engage, go hands on with or point a gun at? Being “ready” means more than being alert and having a gun or knife. It means you need to have a place in your head for a variety of situations, a variety of possible threats AND have the willingness and ability to take action when/if required. It may be a gang of men on motorcycles chasing you down a highway or three men with hammers or maybe it will be a young man with a gun. Create a space in your head for it because it’s out there. #mindset #training #mdts #readiness #awarewillingprepared #willingness
