Where is safety?
I’ve noticed that sometimes people get locked up around the subject of physical safety. Many times, people presume that they are safe once they have some kind of tool in their hands, that is, pepper spray, a baton, a cell phone, a firearm. Many times, however, it can be just the opposite. Once they have a tool, they fall asleep, in reference to being awake, aware, and alert, with well-developed situational awareness.
Colonel Jeff Cooper puts it perfectly, however, when he said:
Safety is something that happens between your ears, not something you hold in your hands.
How do you maintain personal safety?
What is your default method?
How do you share this with family members and loved ones?
