Re: What Are The Real Tactics Of Self Defence?
Situational awareness and a bluff probably saved my life or kept me from getting robbed.
I once lived in a townhouse complex that faced the woods. It had a very long sidewalk in front leading to the parking lot that wasn't very well lit. One dark night while walking to my car, I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. A man in the woods was paralleling me and didn't know that I could see him. As I got closer to the parking lot, he got closer to me on the sidewalk. This was before I even owned a gun, so when the guy got close to me, I bluffed by putting put my hand in my pocket and dared him to come any closer. It worked, he moved away back into the woods and I never saw him again.
Had I not turned my head some when I came out my door, I would have never noticed this guy in the woods watching me.
