    Default Awareness

    From the Facebook page of Shooter's Paradise, firearms & personal trainering: https://shootersparadiseinc.com/

    Convenience stores are the watering holes of modern society. In the desert, everyone must go there for water and the predator just sits and waits for the right victim to stroll up. Today, we buy gas. The store brings people who would otherwise never meet into close proximity with each other. There are some things that can help us avoid the lions and crocodiles. Some are:

    1. Choose the time and place to buy gas, don't let the car decide that for you.

    2. Be willing to buy the most expensive gas. I'm willing to send an extra $2.00 to avoid a week in the hospital.

    3. Choose a store with excellent lighting and clear field of vision.

    4. Purchase gas at a store that allows you to purchase, and get a receipt, without going inside. Buy your snacks and drinks at the grocery store and bring them with you. Besides, they're cheaper!

    5. Lock the car doors. Google the crime "sliding crime" https://www.reshareworthy.com/police...ing-car-crime/

    6. You are in charge of what happens to you. Control any interactions with strangers, don't let them control you.

    7. Do a drive by. If anything looks out of place, come back in 10 minutes.

    8. Look for people who don't look like they belong there. Trust your gut, it's correct.

    9. Avoid any place with people "hanging out."

    10. Finally, don't look at your phone while you pump gas. I know it's hard, but I promise you could use the break, and you will see the predator before you get clocked in the head with a brick.
    Tradition is not about the preservation of the ashes, but about keeping the flame alive

    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak

    Great list! Thanks for sharing. Reading through it, I do those things unconsciously but its VERY nice to see a list to make it a more conscious thing and to be able to pass on to loved ones.
