Posts Tagged ‘Self Defense’

After a SHTF situation occurs; violent crime levels will increase.  Theft, burglary, kidnapping, arson, rape and murder will be the new norm.  You will need to be armed and have the proper skills to defend yourself with your weapons of choice. Insanity will reign in the inner cities and will spread out to the suburbs and then the rural areas. Not enough law enforcement will be available to contain the violent inner city residents so you must become your own first line of self defense. 

If you expect massive civil unrest, economic hardships, political instability, etc., you must have the necessary means, via  weapons and proper weapons training to defend yourself from violent attacks.  Socio-political and economic instability can trigger psychological instability in people which will lead to a rise in violent crimes. Don’t become an easy target for those who can do you harm.  Don’t become a refugee and never ever give up your ability or desire to resist against a violent aggressor.

Stay strong and courageous my friends.  The 2nd amendment is still going strong after all these years and even though there are those who want to repeal it or change it; when push comes to shove they will be defeated every time.  Law abiding citizen’s with access to firearms is the surest way to stop violent criminal aggression.  Always has been, always will be.  Be proud to be an American and be proud to have the right to keep and bear arms.  After all when it comes to your own personal safety and the safety of those you love; it is your right and responsibility to provide protection and keep violent predators at bay.

In any scenario; it is important to be aware of all that is around you as part of your 360 degree self defense 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 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.

In any survival situation you will find that some people will behave irrationally and may try to take advantage of chaotic situations.  Expect these people to commit criminal acts; so be prepared to defend yourself and your family.  All of these people will want something from you and many of them will do nothing to prepare; but will still feel they are owed something.  Just because a disaster has ocurred does not mean the attitude of these people will change.

Do not allow strangers to latch onto you.  They can prove to be very dangerous.  Your goal is to prepare to ensure your family’s survival; not the survival of every stranger that passes by.  You must be prepared to defend yourself and your family from those who would try and harm you and steal your food, water, guns, ammo and other survival supplies.  If strangers had the chance to prepare and chose not to, it is not your responsibility to now provide for them.

Your survival skills and your supplies will not be able to save everyone but they can help save the people who matter to you the most.  You must learn to trust your instincts and stay alert, avoid becoming predictable, be observant, familiarize yourself with your surroundings, learn to move quietly in all environments and avoid large groups of people.  In any survival situation your attitude is everything.  Be proficient with using your survival gear and with applying your survival skills and your chances of coming out alive increase dramatically.

Surviving in the real world comes down to one thing; having the ability to overcome.  You must develop a mindset of controlling your fears so they do not inhibit your actions.  Your mindset must allow you to not only perform to the best of your abilities but to also take responsibility for your actions.

You must know your enemy.  A thug is not your friend, your buddy or your next door neighbor.  They are a person or persons who have no regrets or sympathy when it comes to robbing, raping, murdering or performing any other anti social devestating action against you.  If they perceive you as weak or vulnerable they will attack.  You must be prepared to stop them immediately and be able to properly defend yourself.

The argument to submit to criminals and give them what they want is a false one.  What if the problem escalates?  What if they aren’t satisfied with what you give them?  You need to be prepared to stop a criminal’s aggression by whatever means necessary in defense of your life.  Remember there are no re-do’s if you are the victim of a violent rape or murder.

Be aware of your surroundings at all times.  Do not look like or act like a victim and do not have a victim’s mentality.  Pay attention to what your senses are telling you and react accordingly.  If you feel you are being observed with criminal intent you probably are.  Visualize how you would react to any given criminal scenario as repeated visualization helps with your defensive preparations.  Know the best strike points to quickly disable an attacker and choose and train accordingly with your self defense weapons.

It is a good idea to choose what you are going to rely on from a weapons perspective post apocalypse for self defense, property defense and other types of mobile defense.  The following are my humble suggestions.

  • A semi automatic handgun in either 9mm or 45ACP
  • A 357 magnum revolver
  • An AR-15 
  • A 12 gauge pump action shotgun
  • A long range rifle either in .308 or 7mm Rem Mag 
  • A sturdy fixed blade knife

My choices have factored in my particular needs.  Obviously your needs in terms of caliber/gauge might be different.  Choose wisely.

If you are currently going through the stages where you’re internally debating with yourself whether or not to legally carry a firearm, think about the following.  How would it make you feel if a criminal had total control; the power of life and death over you and your family with only the criminal having any say in whether you or your family lived or died.   Without having a firearm and a working knowledge of using that firearm to defend yourself and your family you would have absolutely no input into that scenario.  It is your right and your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.  Never forget that.  So get that permit, get some training and practice those skills.
