With participation from a live audience, Rob Pincus demonstrates the difference between general readiness and true anticipation of what you’re about to do and how that applies to personal defense.

Reload Bolt Lock M4
Rob Pincus looks at two different reload positions with an M4 carbine. One position is efficient, safe, and gets you back in the fight quickly. The other is less efficient and even dangerous.

That is why we are going to start teaching another LEVEL of Situational Awareness that Native Amaeicans KNEW by INSTINCT! We have lost this level!
On some level you correct. You also mistake situational awareness for being condition orange or what ever the phrase of the day is. I have been using the philosophy of Be Prepared to kill everything you meet. Long before Gen. Madus made it famous with his “Be Polite Be Professional Be Prepared To Kill Everyone You Meet.

It wasn’t that far to move that awareness to people as society got more dangerous. For me it has become second nature. I do it without thinking about it. I know not everyone has this ability or desire but it is who I am. I.m not violent and have never shot anyone but make no mistake if the need be I will do so without a second thought.
Bob you are BRILLIANT!!!!!!
