Firearms Link

Here's a blog with a great title - "The Thinking Gunfighter".

Looks like some good information for those who intend to use firearms for defense.

(I just like the photo, nothing to do with the post.)

Five circles of preparedness

From the Surviving in Argentina blog -

He describes the preparedness mindset much like martial artists discuss ranges - from the immediate, 'deal with it now' range to the longer range (but still life threatening), take a breath and cope (prepare) range.

I like to think of martial arts as being a micro version of the real world - the strategies/principles we use for protecting ourselves are the same, only the tactics and techniques change. And when things go south, fancy moves rarely help - simple, proven methods are preferred.
