The right mindset is essential to staying alive in combat. You must realize that your mind, not your firearm, is your most important weapon.
Safety tip from Lou Chiodo
Many physical confrontations often denigrate into a combination of grappling and striking. This means the fighters will be within arms reach of each other. So, is the other person armed? Unless you did a complete, detailed search and didn’t miss a weapon, you have NO idea. Just because an edged or sharp weapon, and for that matter, a firearm wasn’t initially deployed against you doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist and wont be used against you. Just something to think about next time you are that close to someone you are fighting.
