If you were counting on law enforcement to protect you, video from the past few months should be all the evidence you need to confirm that the police WILL NOT BE THERE WHEN YOU NEED THEM. “The police are minutes away when seconds count.” And, if recent events have taught us anything, it is that they might not show up at all. At best, the police will be there AFTER THE FACT unless you are a government official who has a taxpayer funded armed security detail. Without that PSD, whose responsibility is it to protect your life and the lives of your family members?
Unless your cell phone is actually a Full Conceal Glock 19 or 43 you might want to consider investing in a weapon, and more importantly GETTING TRAINING WITH THAT WEAPON. My friend James Yeager ends all his videos with the mantra: “Your responsibility to be ready for the fight never ends.”
You don’t have to live a life of paranoia doing ninja rolls from shadow to shadow, but as a citizen of this great nation, I recommend you take responsibility for protecting yourself and your loved ones and not “hoping” that someone else will do it for you. As my friends at Thirty Seconds Out say: “No one is coming. It’s up to us.”
Quite frequently these days, I am asked what I carry for personal defense. Though it does change depending on where I am and what I’m doing, I trust, carry, and train with my SIG SAUER P365 and P320 XCompact in a Black Point Tactical mini-wing holster. I have either my Dynamis Blade or AMTAC Northman on me as well. I use a smaller New West KnifeWorks folder for daily tasks like opening packages; the Dynamis and AMTAC are just for fighting.
