Re: What Are The Real Tactics Of Self Defence?
Just like Palmetto said. Notice what's around you and you will reduce greatly the chances you will be a victim, carrying a gun will take care of that smaller percentage left over.
I was sent on a mission to hit up a stop n rob late at night because the wife needed some stuff to make a good breakfast in the morning. Since I like good food I took the extra step to put the Glock in the pants and P32 in the pocket (one is none). I instantly noticed a rough looking guy watching everyone in the store, especially the guy with the money machine in front of him. He wasn't shopping and was not looking at product. He noticed me notice him as I moved to the other side of the store. He watched me watch him, got real nervous and left. Not a single person in there noticed anything walking around in condition white.
Another time SA saved my hide for real was about 14 or so years ago. My brother was over at my apartment and the power went out. I instantly noticed the outside street lights were still on, the weather was nice and most important I could see light creeping under the door going to the hall. What I noticed even more was the shadow two legs cast on that light in front of my door. It just happens we were shooting that day and I just finished cleaning the SAR1 and G17. I grabbed the AK and racked it. I heard an "oh chit" from the hallway and the sound of a person going down the stairs so fast they fell.
Someone switched off the main going to just my apartment and figured I would let them in when I went to go check things out.
I turned my power back on and called the office. It so happens that this is how several invasions had been happening in my area. Suspect everyone, park in well lit areas, watch everyone and I even look into cars before I walk past them. The pay off for paying constant attention to what's around me is never having been a victim. While I know I would have if I was not so aware.
The real tactics of self defense are don't have to defend yourself. Yet be prepared for those ones that don't care you noticed them and still want what you got. Violence of action will put you on top if you ever need to defend yourself and the OP sounds like he needs some help the interweb will never be able to give him....
