In any scenario; it is important to be aware of all that is around you as part of your 360 degree security plan.  You need to pay particular attention to anyone or anything which seems out of place.  Trust your instincts, do not ignore them as your first concern will be to stay alive.

You are your own first line of self defense.  Based on circumstances the course of action you choose needs to be carried through without hesitation.  When faced with violence, which cannot be avoided, you must have the will to act with ferocity and severity in order to save your life.

It is irrational in this day and age that a law abiding citizen would not carry some form of a weapon.  To choose not to carry a weapon intentionally renders yourself partially defenseless.  Violence is escalating and many attacks occur in fringe areas such as deserted parking lots, alleyways, public bathrooms, stairwells, ATM kiosks, etc., where no immediate help will be available.

The most reliable and powerful weapon will do you no good if a situation demands immediate, decisive action for your survival and you fail to take action.  While it is best to avoid violence; if you are in a life threatening situation you may need to react violently to save your life.  Never escalate a situation which could turn violent until you consider where it might lead.

What has happened to my America.  We have gone from a nation of self reliance to a nation of entitlement dependents.  Now I know not everyone is like this; but for those of you with an entitlement mentality, have some self respect and try achieving the following.

  • Get a good education.  It can be done; just apply yourself.
  • Get a good job.  Something you can be proud of.  It may take time to find one that satisfies you; as well as pays well, but keep looking until you find one that’s right for you.
  • Stop expecting other people to foot the bill for you.  A lifetime dependency on welfare should make you feel ashamed.  No self respecting person should feel good about themselves if they are on an entitlement program for their entire life.
  • Got a dream; then see it through.  Don’t give up on it just because you hit a roadblock or two.  Keep pushing forward until you achieve what you want.
  • There is a right and a wrong regardless of what the lamestream media tells you.  Try to have a good moral code and do the right thing even if no one is there watching.
  • Maintain a positive outlook and a confident manner as often as possible; and try to genuinely enjoy what life has to offer.
  • Lying, cheating and stealing is no way to go through life.
  • If you have strong convictions about something than stand your ground.
  • Believe in yourself and have faith in your abilities to succeed.

Knowing the difference between cover and concealment when under attack is of vital importance.  Cover is anything that provides varying degrees of protection from gunfire.  Examples are brick walls, concrete walls, engine compartments of vehicles, logs, thick tree trunks, trenches, rock formations, a freezer full of frozen food items, hillsides, metal dumpsters, sandbags at least 12 inches thick, 55 gallon drums filled with sand, steel doors, concrete parking barriers and telephone poles as examples.  If it can generally stop a bullet it is considered cover.

Concealment provides a place to hide but will not stop gunfire.  Examples are walls of a normal wood frame house, small trees, foliage, darkness, bushes, tall grass, shadows, car bodies, behind non steel doors, tables and couches.  If it cannot stop a bullet it is considered concealment.  Make sure you know the difference; it just might save your life someday.

It’s also important to know the penetrating depths of various calibers at various distances.  Things that might provide protection against a 22LR, 9mm, 45ACP, .223, 5.56 NATO, or a 7.62×39 may provide less protection or at times no protection against a .308, 30-06, 7mm Rem Magnum, 338, 300 Winchester, or 7.62x54r for example.  And if it’s a 50BMG; well pretty much nothing is going to stop that round.   Know your weapons, know your rounds, know the penetration depths at key distances and your odds of survival increase dramatically if the SHTF.

Here’s what I don’t understand about the zombie apocalypse.  No matter how many days, weeks or months go by; whenever you see zombies on TV or in the movies, the lawns always look maticulously cared for or are freshly mowed.  Who are these mysterious bands of survivors who avoid the zombie packs every day yet still find time to mow all the lawns in the neighborhood.  What grit and determination they have to keep their neighborhoods looking prim and proper while the flesh eating undead are everywhere trying to devour them.  I give thanks to these humble keepers of the lawns during the time of the zombie apocalypse :)
