Greetings Concealed Weapons Permittees,
***** Mindset *****
Pray for vigilance. So, you will
have knowledge of the event before the event
occurs. The price of liberty is eternal
Pray for courage to defeat fear and
Pray for calm to defeat stress.
The most powerful mindset is justified
true belief, epistemology.
Do you wear your seatbelts when driving?
Why? Do you intend to crash into something?
Are you itching to get into a collision?
Do you keep a fire extinguisher in your
kitchen? Why? Do you intend to start a fire?
Do you think someone is trying to burn your
Do you carry a gun? Why?
Because there are persons and animals,
some criminal, some stupid, some smart,
who will cause you problems that you will
be forced to solve.

Keep your mouth shut.
Talk to your attorney first. Your attorney
will advise you as to what to say to the
police or prosecutor, if anything at all.
Do not give television interviews, even if
you are a hero. The enemy will twist your
words, label you a racist, and sue you.
They can't call me a racist, I'm not
George Zimmerman was not caucasian.
The liberal media had to coined a new term
to brand him a "white hispanic", in an
effort to gin up racial hatred. But, he
wasn't white. His father was Jewish.
His mother was Venesuelan.
Don't deceive yourself. Selling
advertisements on enemy media outlets
overrides truth every time.

In high stress situations when you
get the adrenaline dump, you won't be able
to dial your phone. You're going to lose

Surprise the enemy. Do the unexpected.
Your life will not flash before your
eyes. Your regrets will: God, your will

or lack thereof, your living will or lack
thereof, your life insurance or lack

spouse, children, mission, etc. So, get
your life in order and make peace with
your God, so you can concentrate on the
fight without distraction.
Don't hesistate to order the potential
threat to leave you alone in a loud firm
voice. Predators don't like the attention
Not being shot is more important than
shooting the bad guy.
It's not the great shot that wins the
fight; it is all the little mistakes that
you don't make. Amateurs practice until
they get it right. Professionals train
until they can't get it wrong. Masters
never stop training.
Nearly every gunfight will have more
people you don't want to shoot than people
you do want to shoot.
The faster you finish the fight,
the less you will get shot.
87% of police murdered in the line of
duty failed to draw their gun.
Citizens are only forced to shoot
would-be attackers one out of thirty times.
Do not ask anyone to call 911 on your
behalf. Make the call yourself.

So, always wear your equipment in the
same place. Always execute immediate action
when the gun doesn’t go bang. It will be
obvious when something else needs to be done.
Always shoot to the center of mass of
whatever the target is. The fewer decisions
you make, the faster you go. The fewer
things you have to choose from,
the faster you go.
